      Got my TACK Cerakote. I like him. But it seems you forgot to add me the edge of tungsten carbide.

      Gabriele & Helmut,
      I can't edit my below comment, but I meant the main bevel is ground at ~40 degrees and you want to slightly decrease your sharpening angle so the entire bevel is not scratched up when sharpening it. Hope that makes sense. If not please contact me.

      Thanks,
      Flavio

      Gabriele & Helmut,
      To test the sharpness of your TACK Titanium knife, the best way is to lightly press the edge of the TACK knife into your thumbnail. If it grabs then it is quite sharp. If it skates off then you can touch up the edge by doing the following:
      1) Edge is ground at ~40 degrees
      2) Using a ceramic rod (Spyderco, Lansky, etc) hold TACK at 37-38 degrees to avoid scratching the entire bevel, and then give it about 5-6 passes on frond side. Then 1-2 passes on the backside to eliminate any burr.

      This should bring it back to razor sharp edge.

      Hope that helps, but please feel free to email me if you have any further questions.

      Thanks!

      Just received the Tack and the Mini Tack in the UK.. 😎..
      Very sharp and looking for the chance to give them a try out..
      Just wondering if mine had the carbide edge done? as in my pledge it was a free option, but in the comments it was a $5 extra?
      Either way I'm Very happy with the items.. 😎..

      Hi Everyone,
      I'm sending this in an update as well, but just wanted to let you know that after a slight delay the remainder of knives will be shipping out today. You should all have a shipped confirmation by the end of day today. Please check update as well.

      Got my order. Must say WOW!! I am super impressed. These will serve me well for many years to come THANK YOU~! Is there any visible way to tell which ones have been edge treated for hardness? I'd like to know which ones I can be harder on without worrying as much about sharpening. Once again, thank you for such an amazing product! Best, Cisco.

      I never received my order, which had quite a few items. I'm guessing maybe it's because of the epoxy bubbles? Thanks for the update. Hope to get my order soon.

      Hi everyone!
      Please check backer update for the latest. We're just finishing up the final shipments now and are hoping to have everything shipped on schedule by this Friday. More info on the update.

      Thanks for the response. I am now confused as to whtehr I have ordered a TACK or not. I have backed both wallet and TACK now as seperate items. Thanks for the email and I appreciate the offer; I am hoping it will be honoured. All the best

      Frazer,
      The pre-order on Backerkit is something new to me and I was unaware that this category of backer was unable to see the "backer only" updates here on Kickstarter. I'll have to figure out a better way of getting updates to those backers that purchase through Backerkit only. I used to have my updates made public, until someone overseas knocked off one of my previous Kickstarter products. Since many of my processes and details are explained in these updates, it made it easier for the counterfeiters to clone my designs.
      I hope you understand and thanks again for supporting TACK!

      Yes, we're getting to international in the next day or two. Just requires customs form so process takes slightly longer.

      Mine is an original version, but the status is still “ready to ship” but not “shipped”. Is it because mine is international order?

      I have just realised that I backed the wallet, this does come with a titanium TACK, no? If not can I add one please? Thanks.

      Hi Frazer,
      Yes, just sent out an update this afternoon. We're still on schedule for a May delivery as promised. First batch of standard titanium TACK's will go out next week and the remainder the week after. See backer update for more details and pictures.

      Just noticed I was charged $42 on my CC for the $39 early bird, was there a shipping charge added, I honestly can't remember and I don't see anything about shipping charges on the campaign page...

    45. TRAK Team 2-time creator on

      Hi Everyone,
      We've just added a Mini-TACK in titanium to the campaign. The new Mini-TACK titanium is a neck carry version of tack, which is about 50% smaller and 1/8" thick. It will come with a custom molded Kydex neck sheath which can be worn with the included stainless steel ball chain, or you can attach it to your keys, backpack, gear, etc. If you like our TRAK runner's knife, this is a two finger version, but larger. I've added them for a KS price only of $59. You can add this to your existing pledge. Regular price will be $75-$80 on these in the future.

      Excellent flavio thank you. I will reachout to you in email. Any chance on a royal treatment to the mini trac?

    48. TRAK Team 2-time creator on

      Kendra,
      I would be happy to address your concerns about the Prototype TACK knife here, But so not to confuse things we can discuss the TRAK knife on the other campaign page. I will look into adding an additional lanyard hole on the opposite end so if a customer wants to wrap the handle with say para-cord they would be able to do so. As for the Burr you mentioned I Have a feeling that what you are seeing is the tungsten carbide welded to the edge. It may be a burger and if it is I would be happy to take care of it for you. Manny knife makers use titanium as a blade material and to make up for the softer material they weld the tungsten carbide to the edge to bring up edge hardness similar to that of a stainless steel knife. The reason I chose titanium is because the knife will live in a high moisture /high humidity area such as your wallet. I find the best way to sharpen a titanium blade is using a flat ceramic stone. Those mini carbide sharpener’s that you draw the knife through tend to just eat up the titanium. If you would like a recommendation just contact me via email and I’ll be happy to discuss it in greater detail with you. I’ve been carrying around and testing a prototype TACK knife For over five years and it has remained my favorite go to knife.
