New Samples and Process update

Posted by Daniel Kane (Creator)

hey everyone!

The new samples of the Kickstarter limited edition and titanium versions are in and I wanted to share the first photos. We have also made a few small details to improve the design on these samples that will be applied to all of the final wallets:

-Improved shape and tension of the money clip

-Polished interior track to avoid wear on the elastic and allow cards to slide smoothly

-Tapered top edge to allow cards to easily slide in.

-Rounded off sharp edges around the half-circle indentation

They're only minor changes but it really makes a big difference in the day to day use.

I also wanted to thank you guys, the payments have been processed very fast and I believe I should be receiving a final list of completed pledges from Kickstarter this week. This means we almost almost have a final tally of each model and will be ready to begin manufacturing!

Since we are able to get an accurate breakdown of models we're going to hold off on the survey until as close to the ship date as possible. This way, in case there are any unforeseeable delays or backers are unsure where they will be headquartered in a month or so we can limit address changes. So you will be able to update your final address when the surveys are sent out.

Other than that thank you again and wish me luck on finals! We'll be working hard prepping for manufacturing and sorting out packaging. I'll send out another update when production starts and post up some of the 3D CAD renditions.

      that green elastic looks meh no black with black?

    8. Diver Dennis on

      How sharp are the corners on the money clip? On some samples they look rounded but on others they look sharper. The other design changes are excellent. Thanks.

      I too ordered "The "Classic" Ridge in anodized silver with silver Titanium outer plates and Titanium money clip." now seeing the new style black i would like to change mine also to "The "Classic" Ridge in black with anodized black Titanium outer plates and black Titanium money clip." is this at all possible?

      Looking great and good luck with your finals, thank you.

    10. Tom Boyle on

      Wow these look great! Also, i am now not sure if i want the black or silver!! I know lots of other people have commented saying similar things, but what are the chances i could change colour?!

      Thanks for the updates. I know the exams will go well for you.

      I pledged for the "Classic" Ridge in black with anodized black Titanium outer plates and black Titanium money clip. There is a version not in black or anodized silver with silver? I should like to get one in the "natural" color of titanium.

    13. Robert Spizzirri on

      You're still going to be able to choose a colour... They're just manufacturing a large quantity of them first...

    14. Carol Koh on

      I agree with Leigh. We have yet to select our colour. Also, will we land our hands on it first since we are the early birds?

    15. Leigh Beadon on

      Question about the surveys: you said you don't need them to know how many of each model/colour to order, but what about those of us who made the early bird pledges? We need to select our colour!

    16. Robert Zillig on

      I am kind of happy and disappointed to see this update.

      I guess many people would have pledged differently if they have seen these pictures before the end of the project.

      Would have gotten green instead if I saw this before it ended.

    18. Nick Palmitessa on

      Looks awesome, can't wait

    19. JA Marbella on

      Now I wished I ordered a black one in addition to the silver

    20. Adam Barry on

      They all look great, though I'm very happy with my kickstarter edition. Good luck with your finals!

    21. Ryan Pearson on

      Black titanium w/ clip is officially pimp.

      Awesome! Will you be shipping international orders with a private company or with regular mail? I have a P.O box that can only accept non-private company.

    23. Humza Ismail on

      They are looking great. Is the pocket lip on the silver ti bridge very shiny cause in one pic it looks fine in the other it looks quite shiny. I am liking the silver a lot and am wondering if I should change from black to it.

    24. Radu Fleanta on

      Super! One question.... I have a pledge for the classic black with the clip. Can I get it with the green rubber

    25. Martijn Dijkstra on

      Wow guys, great work! Can't wait for it to have one!
      Good luck on the finals!

    26. Christina

      The Kickstarter version looks superb!
      Best of luck on your final exams!
