After weeks of preparation, we, along with Matt Martin of Vehement Knives, are going to be on our way the the USN Gathering in Las Vegas tonight, where we are going to release the designs for the STK and Rift for the first time to the EDC and Knife community! Really excited for this one. Hope to see you there!

That's a wrap on four long days of shooting photo and video for our upcoming product release. A big thanks goes out to everyone that helped us out this weekend. We couldn't have done it without you!
Fully machined and assembled final prototypes all finished just in time for a full weekend of filming and photos. Expect to start seeing what everything looks like very soon!
Pumped for Kopis Designs finally getting down to Phoenix this weekend to work with Jack at Tuffwriter HQ. Titanium is in and we are ready to make some chips!
At Kopis, we are fortunate enough to have connections with some of the best media, graphics and marketing professionals. Special thanks to Morgan Deppe and Alyssa Evans for their work on the website, content, and sick new logo. Next step is creating our Kickstarter video with our videographer Alex Caldwell!
Good news! All of our hardware has finally been selected and we have the vendors lined up for each. Titanium screws are really not easy to find.
In addition, we had our first set of custom punches made to be able to make custom-sized phosphor bronze washers for the STK's and we have over 5 ft of phosphor bronze sheet on its way to Colorado.
CAM-work is well underway and we are also optimizing toolpaths for machining run time this week. All of the tooling and test materials are en-route as well!
As many of you know by now, our first product being released this year is the STK. Just to give you a quick status update. We are on our fourth design revision and have completed what we hope might be our final set of 3D Printed prototypes! (That shit is not cheap!)
Our next step is aluminum CNC machined prototypes from our friends over at Tuff-writer hopefully within the next week. If these go as well as we hope, we are going to be getting into the Titanium and S35VN Steel for the next batch!
