NEW Titanium Clip (plus …what should we make next?)
Before I get into stuff that's been happening...
I'd like to do some totally shameless promotion of some clips I just made (they are shipping right away - so, yeah, no pre-order this time).
There are based on my somewhat famous HookUp™ clips - but are a double-ended version of them:
The original HookUp™ clips were launched way back in 2014 ...and I did a double-ended prototype version back then - but never released it. I kind of just forgot about making that double-ended version - and so I've just spent a little time re-developing and making some over the last day or so.
The original HookUp™ clips are also in stock right now along with the NEW "Double" version - click here to check them out.
NOTE: Just out of interest ...this is the cheapest product I've been able to make in quite some time (they are a little easier to make than most of the products we make)
Shipping Flixx™ Knives
Last week we offered a few limited Flixx™ knives - and we've been shipping those out (here are three that went out today):
These knives have been tough!
If you've followed-along with the blog posts since the beginning of the year, then you'll know the never-ending struggles we've had with them.
We're finally starting to figure it out - but, honestly, it's been a bit of a "learning experience".
On the plus side ...it has furnished us with a boat-load of experience for the Project ZERO Custom "flipper" Knife we're working on.
A quick recap for this year so far...
This year we have produced (or are currently working on):
-- Friction Folder Knife (Flixx™)
-- "Flipper" knife (Project ZERO)
-- New Titanium Carabiners (McDangle "Mini")
-- Three different Titanium Pocket-Size Containers (CandyCan™, CandyCan™ XL, CandyCan™ Trinity)
-- Slim Wallet (TiWallet™)
...and we're only halfway through the year!
We plan to keep developing and prototyping - that's not going to stop for sure.
We're wondering where to go next ...and I'm wondering if you have any thoughts?
What should we make? (comment below and I WILL reply to every comment!)
Knives are something we would like to push a little further into.
Also, we'd like to try a flashlight (I have a very cool and fairly original design for this) - but that's going to take a little time as we have a lot of R&D to do (battery, electronics, etc.)
One thing I'd like to make is a compact set of fold-out pliers (with perhaps one or two other features on there). We now have a bit of experience working with blade steels and hardening in our knife oven ...and so making pliers is something I reckon we can do at this point in time.
Would love to hear if you have any thoughts (by the way... the PillPots™ were a product that was born directly from comments from you on this blog a few years ago!)
