Fighting Man's Frying Pans!
I have found a less than epic styling to my current kitchenware. I can crack eggs with a well-placed pistol and beat them with a mighty cordless drill. But frying them? For that I use a non-mighty pan? Never!
We here at Morlock Enterprises pride ourselves on bringing awesome into your day. Let us infect your kitchen with our indelible stamp of awesome. Allow the wonderful delusions that haunt your adventure seeking brains to seep out. Cry havoc and let loose the bacon of deliciousness!
For that purpose we have created the most epic of combat kitchenware, the Fighting Man's Frying Pan or FMFP! A battle hardened piece of cookware ready to maul any meal you sling before it.
The skillet itself varies and can be tailored to your individual combat styles. The hilt is where the inherent awesome is contained. We start with a custom milled aluminum base and combine it with a molded silicone wrap. Thus creating a sturdy well insulated handle. What warrior cook could ask for anything less?
All of the parts are carefully manufactured by the fine people of Morlock Enterprises (if you consider subterranean cannibalistic evolutionary offshoots of humanity people). Milled and cast in the USA, by us.
All steps of production will be managed by us in our shop in Herndon, VA. Our machine shop is set and ready to handle a job of this magnitude. We just need the funding to jumpstart production. Everyone here takes great pride in having our geeky hands on all parts of the project directly, from design to production.One pan is easy. However, enough pans to indulge the epic needs of our fellow culinary warriors takes a bit more. To that end, I am hoping to use this kickstarter to help fund the molding and tooling to make this project a reality, and get this epic culinary craziness into as many hands as possible.
It is my fervent hope that this is but the vanguard of a host of epic culinary implements.
I am clearly insane. You will want to see what I create next.
Dinner is coming, prepare yourself.
Risks and challenges
With any custom project there are many things that can stall even the most valiant of hero. We like to think that we have mitigated risks of pan creation using our awesome stat sheet and proper use of charisma points.
Crafting of the Proto-Pan, pictured above, has helped lay waste to most of the surprises in design. All the plans that we might need have been 3D modeled, drafted, crayoned, and beaten with a very large hammer.
As with any design, there are curveballs that may be encountered in production. These may force minor design changes to the pans, but that is a minor threat to our overall quest for kitchen domination. All kitchen warriors will be kept apprised of any production surprises and the alterations they cause.
We have been crafting a great many things for a good number of years. This project falls not in a new realm for us, but an extension of existing capabilities. Milling, casting, and a general mangling of materials into pleasing and usable forms is kind of all we do.
The greatest challenge is if we exceed the goal it will take more time to meet delivery of the pans. Should this happen pans will be released in waves, one after another, until demand is met. And we will have the epic joy of crafting the Fighting Man Frying Pans for the next several months.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
