The fixed “everything but content” aspect to this layout is surprising and that’s a good thing. You totally don’t expect the page to behave like it does when you start scrolling – I love that. Some of the elements are a tad on the small side for me personally, I’m not normally a fan of small(ish) type on a web page. I really dig the line work, the illustrative quality to the mouse over on the main images and the hand styled type all around the site is very nice.

Also, having your logo be a set of brass knuckles is pretty awesome… just sayin’.
