On Our Way to USN Gathering

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!

Working on the First STK and Rift Prototypes

Last weekend Jon went down to Arizona to work on the first prototypes with Jack from Tuff Writer. Exciting stuff on the way!

Hardware and More Prototyping

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!

Stay tuned!

The Start of The STK Project

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!
