No more pocket pokes from a keychain spike because the 'K Spike' "sharp" end, stores inside the case...and the case becomes the handle! 

A great tool with tons of uses, including opening stubborn packages, marking wood or metal, punching holes, chipping ice or even use it as a Plumb-Bob!
When you need the 'K Spike' simply reverse and screw the Spike, into the handle.

Risks and challenges

I have successfully delivered several other projects.

The 'K Spike' will be made in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which eliminates the issue of dealing with out of state machine shops and shipping logistics.
Production costs and allowances have already been established.

My machinists experience and successful delivery of other Kickstarter projects, gives me great insight to production considerations, e.g. how to design the 'K Spike' and time effective production and delivery.

The material used for the 'K Spike' have good availability and are not subject to extreme pricing spikes or shortages.

If I need to ramp up production speed or in the unlikely event I get hit by a bus, I have another local machine shop that will assist.
