Too Much Titanium?
Good-day to you!
I’ve been doing a little thinking lately and thought I’d run something past you…
Take a look at this photo:
What’s the common theme here? Yep, you got it, it’s 100% titanium (hell, all that gear is even resting on a titanium sheet!).
Don’t get me wrong…
I love titanium. The more the better for sure.
But lately I’ve been doing some thinking. What I do here at Cogent Official International Headquarters (or,“my kitchen table”, as I more commonly call it :-D) is make things better than others make them.
And not just a little better… but 100% the best. Best materials. Best finish. No compromising. The whole shaboodle!
Here’s my thought for you:
Why just limit things to high-end titanium gear (that typically goes in your pocket or bag)?
I’m thinking I should take some of my no-holds-barred-Magnus-you-cannot-be-serious-no-one-else-would-consider-doing-that approach to the design and creation of non-titanium gear.
For example: what about a small, high-end rucksack. My initial thought would be for all the “hardware” components on it to be made from titanium (none of that plastic stuff everyone else uses).
I’m just kinda throwing this out there.
Actually, I’m not even sure if I’m telling the truth here – perhaps the reason for this post is because I’ve received a few things recently that I pledged for on Kickstarter.com, they have come from China and they’ve been pretty damn disappointing in terms of quality. They looked so good in the photos as well! Damn it.
I’m not knocking Kickstarter either. I love Kickstarter …it’s what allowed me to start Cogent!
Oh, and I don’t even mind that products come from China (hell, most electronics are made in China – Sony, Apple, and so on). It’s really just the level of quality (and almost always the feel and function of the end product).
Yeah, maybe that’s the reason for this post. I think I’m just kinda sick and tired of being disappointed again and again that something I ordered is, in fact, a piece of mass-produced garbage.
I’m happy to pay three or four times the price for it …I just want to KNOW it’s going to damn good quality.
Okay, I’m done ranting! 😛
So, yeah, I’m keen to venture into the non-titanium world and offer you something that still conforms to my you-gotta-be-kidding-me, sky-high standards (as well as my Lifetime Guarantee, support and everything else that other businesses seem to miss).
If there is anything in particular you’d like me to make, then comment below…
