The COMBAR On Kickstarter

Monday, April 9th, 2018

The COMBAR, “an incredibly rugged heavy-duty multi-tool”, is a project currently up on Kickstarter. The project was started by Delaware-based ACLIM8, an outdoor solutions company formed by ex-IDF Special Forces officer and outdoor lovers.

The COMBAR is made of aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel, weighing in at only 3.2 lbs., and features 3 main tools:

– A hammer made of 420J2 steel with a textured finish
– An axe with a blade made of 420J2 steel and a cheek made of 6AL-4V titanium
– A spade made of 6AL-4V titanium

Additionally, the COMBAR features a storage magazine that stows into the grip, allowing the user to securely store addional survival materials as needed.

The Pro version of the COMBAR also comes with two additions:

– A drop-point blade survival knife made of 420HC steel, with a glass-reinforced nylon handle
– A hand saw that uses standard replaceable 6″ – 9.45″ blades

The COMBAR has reached its funding goal at the time of writing, however the project will continue until June 7th, so if you’re interested in supporting the project, you’ve got plenty of time.

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.

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

A folding-style knife, the Ausus features a 3.5″ drop point blade with a taper grind, made of D2 Steel, and a canvas Micarta handle. Dual oversized thumb studs and ball bearing deployment allow for a smooth, easy opening, while the liner lock mechanism ensures the blade stays in place when deployed. 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.

Machination Studio – Schnauzer Armored Walker On Kickstarter

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

The Schnauzer Armoured Walker is a scale model mechanized dieselpunk walking tank, from a model/toy line called Codename Colossus. The first ‘Colossus’ walking tank to be produced from the Imperial German faction, the Schanuzer is 21 cm tall, with a realistic walking action, spinning Gatling gun, and cannon motion. It features a series of mechanical gears and cams, all driven by a single motor, powered by 4 AA-sized batteries.

Introducing the B•A•T TRIDENT: A Wildly Unique New Multitool LIVE On Kickstarter

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

Covert Products Group’s “Bring Anywhere Tool” has 12+ Functions in a Compact Size

Trident

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut – November 2, 2017 – In a market flooded with multitools and pocket gizmos, standing out from the crowd is no easy feat, especially on Kickstarter. With a unique shape and carry options, Covert Products Group’s new B.A.T. TRIDENT multitool moves the conversation of EDC tools in a totally new direction.

Inspired by the familiar silhouette of side-release buckles (as found on backpacks and bags), the B.A.T. TRIDENT expands on CPG’s “bring anywhere tool” concept that debuted on Kickstarter last year. The TRIDENT – which launched this week on Kickstarter – is engineered to contain 12+ useful functions in a compact, ergonomic and highly “carry-able” package. From daily utility to survival, the TRIDENT is designed to be carried (almost) anywhere, excel at a variety of tasks, and look good doing it.

“The perfect tool isn’t so perfect if you don’t have it with you,” explains the TRIDENT’s designer Thom O’Leary. “The TRIDENT is big enough to be useful, but small enough to carry just about anywhere, either visibly or covertly. Slip it onto a backpack strap, belt, keychain, or carry it in your pocket.”

The TRIDENT functions include:

· Phillips head screwdriver

· Razor edge

· Sharp piercing point

· Captured cutter

· Flat head screwdriver/pry tip

· Wire stripper

· Serrated fire rod scraper

· Saw edge

· Laser-etched 1” ruler

· Ergonomic bottle opener operated with the tool safely held in the sheath

· Fire starter rod (included) OR swap it out for an optional EmbriteTM glow pellet from TEC Accessories

· 3M SOLAS reflective sticker

· And the TRIDENT’s molded Kydex Sheath is designed to allow multiple attachment options for everyday carry

The TRIDENT is available now through December 1st on Kickstarter, with lowest prices available for early adopters. The TRIDENT will ship during or before March 2018.

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.

    Lifeclock One – Escape From New York Inspired Smartwatch On Kickstarter

    Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

    It’s no secret that Escape from New York is one of my absolute favorite movies of all time. So much so that I’m still constantly on the lookout for related memorabilia, collectables, art, and the like. That’s why the Ridgewood Watch Company’s Lifeclock One has caught my interest, as it is an officially licensed reproduction of Snake Plissken’s countdown watch from the aforementioned movie, modernized into a multi-function smartwatch.

    lifeclock

    The Lifeclock One consists of a main enclosure CNC machined from a solid piece of brass with a stainless steel backplate. The LEDs utilized within the Lifeclock are 11 segment custom displays made specifically for the watch. The strap is made of leather, and is being offered with either Velcro (like in the movie), or a more traditional buckle attachment. The Lifeclock will also be Bluetooth enabled, and capable of of integrating with a smartphone, as well as function as a standard watch, stopwatch, compass, and more.

    Perhaps the only real grey spot about the Lifeclock One is this: it can be considered pretty darn pricey. The “Early Backer Edition”, already priced at $249, is sold out at the time of writing, with the next least-expensive tier starting at $399, and the final tier as high as $799.

    On the other hand, the Lifeclock One does feature high-quality components, and although it doesn’t fully meet the FTC’s guidelines to be considered a fully ‘Made in USA’ product, the main enclosure and core printed circuit board are US-manufactured, and the completed watches will be assembled, tested, and distributed from the state of Georgia.

    So, if the price point isn’t too daunting, and you like what the Lifeclock One has to offer, then feel free to support Ridgewood Watch Company’s efforts on their Kickstarter campaign.
