Some of My 2016 Predictions…

Okay, these are not really “predictions”.

I’m basically letting you in some of my very rough plan for this year.

 

The last few months

There is one thing that’s been #1 priority for the last few months (well, apart from looking after Customers… and if I’m honest, even then I’ve stumbled a few times in doing this) and that’s …SHIPPING!

Dear lawd this has been the cause of so many emails over the last few months from Customers wanting to know where their order is. And quite right too!

For two years I had steady 2 to 3 weeks shipping. And then, a few months ago, we’re up to 4, 5, 6 and more weeks. I don’t know what the cause is (despite my attempts at trying to find out).

Anyway, I’ve just implement a new shipping method (it’s been a long road getting all the logistics in place!). I thought it was going to be ready a couple of months ago but there were so many “issues” trying to get it to work seamlessly with my website – but I finally got it all working in “test mode” last week.

What does this mean for YOU?

Well, there’s a tiny bit of “bad” and a whole lot of great (I’m not going to lie to you).

The “bad bit” is that I’m going to have to charge something for shipping (rather than it being free like it has been).

But, the good things are very good indeed:

I’m still paying most of the shipping (what I’ll be charging is just to help towards it)

  • Fully tracked
  • Fast (and I mean FAST!!) shipping from here in New Zealand to anywhere in the world will be 3 to 5 days maximum

In fact, this new method is so good I’m not even going to offer the old method …because the old method is just plain old frustrating for you and me.

 

The next couple of months

I’ll be fulfilling the Kickstarter project for the Titanium Mechanical Pencil  and Titanium Pen.

The custom mechanisms have arrived from Japan – check ’em out:

I’m bang in the middle of re-designing the titanium tweezers (you can still get the originals by clicking here).

The new design has changed a lot because of the fantastic response I received in the comments section. It was great to get such tremendous feedback and so I took that and ran with it. Here’s where the new titanium tweezers design is at right now. Still more work to go though.

 

Next…

I’m working on a “top secret” version of the smaller titanium tweezers.

I usually like to share progress with you …but sometimes I have a vision for a product that I want just for ME. Selfish? Yes! But, you know, it usually turns out to be a product where people DEMAND I take their money (their words – not mine).

Here’s as much as I can show you for now… 😛

Later in the year

I want to finally get my latest titanium carabiner past the prototype stage because it’s been looking like this for months now:

titanium-carabiner-1

 

Yes, it’s still at a pretty rough stage – but it functions damn well because I’ve put a lot of work into perfecting that “gate” on it.

Oh, and the titanium wallet is coming along – it’s just taking longer than expected because I’ve prioritized other things for now.

 

Lastly…

I’ve been fairly busy with… well, with everything I listed above.

A whole load of people have been asking me when the new Titanium Lanyard Bead designs will be available.

Short answer:

They’re ready now – but I just don’t have the time to put up a proper page telling you call about them. So, in the meantime, if you’re after a set of four of the new designs I’ve put a “Buy Now” link below.

Here’s what they look like…

titanium-lanyard-beads-1

They’re the same dimensions as the original set of four Titanium Lanyard Beads I did. The only difference is that these are four brand new designs.

I’m going to offer them individually in the coming weeks or months (they’ll likely be $40 or $50 each). However, right now, I’ve got just a couple of dozen on hand and so I’m going to offer a damn good deal to you (because I’m a helluva nice guy :-).

What I’ll do is offer you the entire set of four new designs for a knock-down price of just $87 (yes, that’s even cheaper than the original designs!)… Click Here to Buy Now

Oh, and remember, I’m now shipping DHL Express only… which means you’ll get these in 3 to 5 days wherever you are in the world. How cool is that!

    I really want to see what you have in store for the Ti Wallet. Can you please share something??? Please???

  • Phi says:

    Will you ever work on something along the lines of a spinning top? Something really nice like tungsten over titanium with a ruby tip? Maybe a nice spinning coin in the same fashion?

  • Vincent Goudreault says:

    That carabinier with the integral spring, that looks like a patentable design.

  • Simon Wagstaff says:

    The carabiner looks awesome. And the integral spring mech is genius.

  • Michael says:

    Any progress on the belt buckle concept?

  • Jason says:

    That Carabiner looks very sexy.
    Second the belt buckle!

  • Rob says:

    I would love to see a high end titanium click pen that matches the mechanical pencil. Also a high end titanium folder knife. I like too see what you would come up with.

  • William B Schinella says:

    Go wild and let your mind loose, come up with some more great ideas like you have al ready, and maybe some more things like wrenches or screw drivers that won’t round over? Just lit the mind go and we will be here to see and give you are thoughts!
