Next Shipment Arriving Soon

Posted by Sean Connell (Creator)

Hi Kickstarters, 

The manufacturer has finished the next set of units. The tools will be shipped from the manufacturer to me this week with an estimated arrival by the end of next week. I will fulfill orders in chronological order (both domestic and international). I'm expecting 650 stainless steel tools. However, the number may be slightly less after my quality inspection. I will also be receiving a limited quantity of the tactical black units. The purpose is to demonstrate consistency before moving forward with a larger order of the black units. 

I have had numerous conversations with the manufacturer regarding the timeline. They have stressed that the entire project will be completed by the end of March. 

I know the project has stretched on for a number of months now, but we are moving forward and fulfilling orders. 

Thanks.

      Hi Sean, I too appreciate your attention to detail and your level of communication. No complaints here. And ultimately I hope this has been an invaluable learning experience for you, realistically that's the whole point of kickstarter as far as I'm concerned. Good luck with it all.

      Is there anyway to check the shipping address?

      Will we be receiving a notification when we have our unit shipped?

      Thanks for the support everyone. I'm looking forward to closing out this project.

      The issues with the black coating is simply consistency. That's why it was difficult to "hash out" that method in the beginning. It's easy to produce a couple show pieces, but to produce several thousand all with the same quality in a cost effective means is another matter.

      The manufacturer has stressed that the entire project will be completed by the end of March...including the black units. Let's hope we meet the deadline.

      I agree with Jawaan; I almost forgot about this item, it's been so long... What's the over/under on the number of updates before anyone gets anything? XD

      Thank you for the update. I am currently dealing with another project that feels like the less communication to the backers the better. It's a good feeling to know that you care enough to keep us in the loop.

      Thankfully I chose the Stainless steel. Coated stuff is always harder to do. The black might look cooler, but that's harder.

      @Chris Hayes, why are you on Kickstarter? Don't you have a MSNBC show to prepare for at 8pm. :-D

    12. Christopher C Hayes on

      What is going on with the black tool? I just don't understand how this stuff wasn't hashed out from the beginning when you found the manufacture. I agree with the other person and feel as if I should have gone with the plane tool instead of black.

    13. Mitchel Burton on

      Are you going to be shipping any of the tactical black units?

    14. Derek Gabriel on

      Appreciate your tenacity and attention to detail. Thank you.

      So I guess I bought the wrong type of tool(black ones). Any ETA on black finish.

      To be completely honest. I forgot I even bought this item. Oh well keep up the good work.

      So you've received about 1,000 steel and are getting another 650 by the end of next week?

      If I'm adding up correctly it's about 3,000 stainless steel units needed, so only about 50% will be sent out after this update too? Is there any way to know if we were shipped one already?
