ZEROHOUR Apex Bolt Action Pen

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

ZEROHOUR is currently running a Kickstarter campaign for the APEX Bolt, a ‘bolt-aciton’ version of their popular APEX Tactical Pen. What makes the APEX a Tactical Pen? In the original’s case, it was made of extremely durable materials (aluminum or titanium), featured a Fisher space pen cartridge, and had a tungsten steel glass-breaking tip/striking point. The APEX Bolt continues this trend, with a choice of either an aluminum or titanium body, Fisher Space Pen cartridge, Ceramic glass-breaking tip/striking point, and new to the Bolt, a ‘bolt-action’ pen actuation mechanism, and a hex-bit socket.

At the time of writing, this campaign was already funded over 3 times its initial goal, however as always you can still fund the project and secure a pen for yourself.

Tachyon: A Weapon Mounted Computer For Airsoft

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

Tachyon is a seriously cool project up for funding on Indiegogo. A creation of Martin Hrehor of Košice, Slovakia, Tachyon is a weapon-mounted computer designed for use with airsoft rifles. Taking cues from Sci-Fi weapons, such as the MA5 series rifles from Halo and the M41A Pulse Rifle from Aliens, the Tachyon is able to display a programmable, active ammunition count, which is represented both as a numeric and graphical counter, which tracks shots via an infrared sensor mounted to the barrel. The Tachyon also has an adjustable brightness setting, clock, and battery monitor. Additionally, Tachyon mounts onto a Picatinny rail assembly, and had its own top-mounted rail, for attaching an optic.

At the time of writing, the initial run of 24 units were already claimed, so only non-reward contributions can be made at this time. Still, if all goes well with the project, it’s rather likely we’ll see more of the Tachyon later on.

The Official Dick Tracy Watch On Indiegogo

Saturday, June 23rd, 2018

Ivory & Horn, a company formed by two brothers, has started an Indiegogo campaign for an officially licensed Dick Tracy Ivory & Horn did produce a Dick Tracy watch back in 2016, however its function was purely as a watch. This 2018 model is not only a watch, but also features a Bluetooth-enabled speakerphone, meaning it functions much like the actual watch from the Dick Tracy comic strip. You can check out the entirety of the details and features via the below image:

Regarding the availability: they’re planning on making only 1000 units available upon successful funding. Given it’s a pretty niche product, that makes sense, but if you want to get one for yourself, you’d best fund now rather than later.

KOTA Longboards Spitfire Mk V Electric Longboard On Kickstarter

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

KOTA Longboards is a Veteran-owned and operated company based in Denver, Colorado that manufactures commercial longboards. They get their name from the ‘Knights of the Air’ moniker coined in France during the early days of WWI, used to describe the pilots of early airplanes.

They started a Kickstarter campaign to fund their Spitfire Mk V Electric Longboards. The Spitfire Mk V is powered by a 35 volt battery, with a range of 15-17 miles on a single charge, and it’s capable of speeds of 22-25 MPH.

The best part is this setup can be paired with one of KOTA’s awesome Military-inspired decks, which is treated with KOTA’s proprietary KOTAgrip, a clear gloss finish which foregoes the need for grip tape while preserving the surface art.

Iron Harvest On Kickstarter

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Iron Harvest is a project currently up for funding on Kickstarter. Iron Harvest takes the art of Jakub Różalski and his ‘World of 1920+’, and adapts it to a Real Time Strategy video game. The World of 1920+ itself is an alternate history, which takes place in the early 20th century after a great war where powerful walking tanks and other heavy industrial-inspired weapons and technologies were used to great effect.

The campaign itself has reached its minimal funding goals, however it still has a way to go before its stretch goals are all reached, so if you’re interested give the campaign a look at the link below:

Zootility Launches the RNGR™ ST-2 Everyday Carry Knife

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

The World’s thinnest featherweight 440C stainless steel knife

PORTLAND, ME – A radically new knife design, the RNGR ST-2 is a hyper thin folding knife constructed without screws or pins. Targeted at ultra-light adventurers and, at only 3mm thin, every pants pocket in America (regardless of how tight). Building on the success of its super lightweight credit-card-sized WildCard™ knife, Zootility’s RNGR ST-2 brings the convenience of WildCard out of the wallet and into the pocket. The most innovative EDC knife on the market, RNGR ST-2 is constructed of 440C stainless steel, a premium knife material, and is ultra-thin and light, allowing customers to store it conveniently, under the most extreme circumstances. Or under daily circumstances, in a pocket.

The patented two-piece design, is not only unmatched on the market, but allows the product to be entirely manufactured in the US, where the cost of manual assembly is at a premium. This design also allows the carrier to remove the blade without any tools. This is convenient, for instance at airport security, if one forgets they are carrying it. An easy mistake to make, given the low profile and minimal in-pocket feel. This duo-lithic design allows for easy cleaning as well; simply pop the pieces apart and place in the dishwasher.

“By utilizing stronger steel and increasing the thickness by a mere 1mm, we were able to make the blade and body more than three times as strong,” commented Zootility founder and CEO Nate Barr. “Our design and manufacturing teams have worked so hard on this project and we’ve made great product, RNGR ST-2 totally takes our EDC offerings to the next level,” added Barr.

RNGR ST-2
Weight: 1.4 ounces
Blade length: 2.2”
Blade thickness: .062”
Knife thickness: .125”
Material: 440C
Construction: Bolt and pin free
Airport security: Removable blade
Optional: Pocket clip
USA Made: Portland, Maine
MSRP: $49


The RNGR ST-2 debuts today on Kickstarter with special introductory prices and offers. Barr hopes with the timing of this launch to attract last-minute Christmas shoppers who after backing ST-2 can print an IOU from the Kickstarter page.

James Yeager Wants You To Help Him Launch YeagerTUBE

Sunday, December 17th, 2017

As many of you may know, James Yeager has been banned by YouTube. To be sure, Yeager is a controversial figure in the firearms business. Some consider his banning is a blow to free speech while others feel that he brought it on himself. Regardless, we have to acknowledge that YouTube and other major social media platforms have become central to modern communications. Not many alternatives exist. Yeager recognized this and has developed a plan to create his own video hosting platform which he initially called YeagerTUBE, noting, “I am looking to build a free speech oasis in a sea of left wing censorship.”

D2FECFC2-CF82-476E-A912-8A885C77677B

The project has been renamed LiberTV with the project described as “WE are going to build a place where our freedom loving culture can share photos, articles, videos and podcasts. A place that doesn’t muzzle the voices of freedom and that cherishes our heritage.”

To make it a reality, he’s launched a Kickstarter campaign.

3COIL Design – Puna And Crane Knives On Kickstarter

Monday, December 4th, 2017

3COIL Design is a “London based fashion and product design studio”, who have started a Kickstarter campaign for a couple of EDC tools, the Puna and Crane Knife.

The Puna

The Puna features a design overtly reminiscent of a modern day AR-15-like rifle. The upper receiver portion removes from the lower receiver, functioning as a tool knife with a scalpel blade. The blade is easily replaceable using the included ‘suppressor’ micro screwdriver, while two interchangeable magazines function as a Flathead and Phillips head screwdriver, respectively.

As a happy accident, the Puna also fuctions as a proper bottle opener.

The Puna comes in a slick aluminum case, roughly the size of a business card, laid out with all the separate components, including spare blades. As a bonus, the top lid is pocketed, and can be used to store business cards, and other like-sized items.

The Crane

The Crane, a bit more pedestrian when compared to the showy Puna, is, as claimed by 3COIL, the smallest folding scalpel blade in the world. Made of stainless steel with a silver color, it features a non-locking, spring-loaded mechaism, an open length of 3.7″, and utilizes a No.11 Scalpel blade. The Crane is normally made only in extremely limited numbers by 3COIL, and this is the first time they’re doing a full production run.

StatGear’s Ausus EDC Knife On Kickstarter

Monday, November 13th, 2017

Ausus

The Ausus is a “Luxury EDC Knife without the Luxury Pricetag” by StatGear, currently up as a Kickstarter campaign.

Additional features include a reversible pocket clip, and lanyard hole.

This project is fully funded (over ten times its goal at the time of writing), however if you want one for yourself in time for the early December ship date range, you can check out the campaign at the link below.

GEIO, The World’s 1st FPS Battle Bot With Visual Recognition

Saturday, November 11th, 2017

First it’s “Oh, here’s a neat toy with AI that lets it track targets.”, then it’s an army of 50-foot tall versions of this thing with on-board laser canons and missile launchers, actively subjugating humanity like Skynet in the Terminator series.

In all seriousness though, this looks pretty cool. If you want one for yourself, its currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, linked below:

WESN Titanium Micro Blade EDC Pocket Knife On Kickstarter

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

The WESN is a micro blade EDC knife currently up for funding on Kickstarter. Featuring a blade made of AUS8 steel and a grade 5 titanium grip, the WESN – which stands for West, East, South, North, lending to its design as a carry everywhere knife, is a durable daily carry knife with a small form factor deliberately sized similar to a key. What follows is a press release from the knife’s creator, along with a link to the Kickstarter campaign.

Kickstarter-only prices of $35 on the WESN — a titanium knife with a length of 3.6″. Available October 25.

The WESN is a titanium body micro blade measuring in at a total length of 3.6 inches. It has the practicality and versatility of a full-size knife—but at a fraction of the weight, and the size of a house key.

WESN Goods has launched an exciting Kickstarter campaign that offers backers exclusive early-bird prices on the WESN Micro Blade. WESN was founded by Billy Chester, who wanted to build a knife that combined all of his favorite parts and aspects from different knives he’d owned.

“When I started making the WESN knife, I didn’t have any grand ideas of starting a ‘knife brand,’” Chester says. “All I wanted was a knife that I myself would want to own—something reliable, practical, and made of the best materials. Plus, I wanted something worth every penny of the cost, and not a cent too expensive.”

By using top grade components, the WESN is made with some of the best materials at an affordable price: grade 5 titanium and AUS8 steel. Chester partnered with the top knife manufacturer overseas, meaning he produces the WESN out-of-country. This keeps the cost down, while still using top-grade, made-in-America components. The titanium makes the body simultaneously tough, hardy, and incredibly light. And by using AUS8 steel, the blade is durable, sharp, and made to last for years.

The full specs of the WESN are as follows:

  • Blade Length: 1.5” (38mm)
  • Closed Length: 1.9” (48mm)
  • Open Length: 3.85″ (98mm)
  • Handle Material: Grade 5 Titanium body
  • Blade Steel: AUS8 Heat Treated Steel
  • Hardware: Stainless steel
  • Frame-lock
  • Pocket Clip
  • Keychain Hole
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Those interested in the WESN micro blade can visit WESN Goods at their website, and can purchase their own by visiting the knife’s Kickstarter page and backing the project.

    About WESN:

    WESN Goods was started by Billy Chester as a way to pursue building practical, dependable, hard-working goods. Committed to using the best materials, WESN Goods promises to build things that carry far and carry well.

    MRF Multitools – Universal 3.0 Credit Card EDC Multitool On Kickstarter

    Friday, October 13th, 2017

    There’s a saying that big things come in small packages. Such is the case with MRF Multitools’ Universal 3.0 multitool, which is pretty big on functionality, with its creators claiming it holds 60+ tools and functions, yet it’s sized the same as a credit card.

    This list gives a count of all the on-board tools featured on the Universal 3.0, with your standard accompaniment of blades, openers, drivers, wrenches, etc. Relatively unique additions, such as a tire tread depth gauge and distance ruler, do single the Universal 3.0 out among its peers. Additionally, like many EDC tools, the Universal 3.0 will be made of 440с High Carbon Hardened Stainless Steel.

    The STK Multi-Tool: Sliding Tool & Knife for Every Day Carry On Kickstarter

    Monday, November 21st, 2016

    I’m a fan of a good EDC multitool, and with Kickstarter allowing all sorts of ideas to gain fruition, it’s no surprise that a bunch of multitools pop up as fundable projects. One such tool is the STK from Kopis Designs. The STK, which stands for ‘Sliding Tool and Knife’, and could be pronounced like the word ‘stick’ (although it sure doesn’t look like one), is a multitool with an integrated opening and locking mechanism. The frame is made of 6AL4V titanium, and the blade is made of S35VN steel. The blade functions as a straight-edge knife, and also hosts the following features:

      

  • push-cut / scraping blade
  • flathead/pry edge
  • 1/4″ bit diver
  • bottle opener
  • wingnut and O2 valve wrench
  • wire-striper notch
  • The STK’s opposite end also hosts a titanium pocket clip, which can also double as a money clip, if you feel a wallet is too high profile.

      
    In addition to the STK, Kopis is also offering the Rift EDC tool on the same project campaign. The Rift is very much a companion piece to the STK, with a design very reminiscent of the later, but it is intended as a “travel-safe pry tool”; “travel-safe” in this case means ‘intentionally designed with no sharp edges’. Also manufactured of 6AL4V titanium, the Edge features the following tools:

  • box opening point
  • scraping / pry edge
  • flathead
  • 1/4″ bit driver / bottle opener
  • O2 wrench / 1/4″ bit storage / key ring slot
  • pocket clip & key dangler
  • If you like what you see, feel free to click the link below and put more than a few dollars towards the project.

    gripsher

    The GRIPsher is a compact multitool “dreamt up by an Army Veteran, refined by an MIT engineer, and brought to life with common sense”. The creators of GRIPsher have designed the tool with a variety of functions, including, but not limited to:

  • Pliers
  • Wire Cutters
  • Phillips head and flat head drivers
  • Material thickness gauge
  • Adjustable hex bolt wrench

  • Perhaps the most interesting feature of the GRIPsher is the glow-in-the-dark jaws on the bottom of the tool. Dubbed the HEXGRIP system, the jaws serve as a fully adjustable way to secure hex nuts, bolts, and bits.

    black

    Additionally, the GRIPsher team is hosting a special program called Tools For Troops. For every GRIPsher black model supported, a version of the GRIPsher with black HEXGRIP jaws will be donated to a military service member; this is the only way to get a GRIPsher with black jaws.
