Made In The USA!
All Cubits are proudly 100% sourced and crafted in the USA. Titanium and Tungsten Cubits are crafted through a certified aerospace vendor who meets stringent quality control standards for precision and durability. This level of certification is used for parts for U.S. fighter jets, like the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Furthermore, by keeping all production here in the USA I will have a close eye on quality control, and be able to minimize shipping time and cost!
Risks and challenges
Great Care has been taken to source each metal from reputable certified American aerospace and industrial vendors. Backup quotes are available in case a vendor cannot meet quantity or quality requirements.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
