Being in the outdoors is a simple pleasure and we wanted to bring you a product that would be a simple pleasure to use! Introducing 'The Splitter -Titanium Multi Utensil' a SUPER light weight multi utensil that is compact and minimalist. The Splitter is made of two separate titanium utensils, 1 spatula and 1 long spork, that when joined together, turn into a handy set of tongs. It's the pinnacle of outdoor utensils, made from the highest quality materials available.
We are Full Windsor! We are a small outdoors brand driven by design, creativity and curiosity. This is our 5th kickstarter product launch. We have extensive experience, we have the manufacturing capabilities and we know what we are doing. Last year we released our Muncher titanium multi utensil on kickstarter, fulfilling every pledge to our 4553 wonderful backers with a product that then went on to be featured in Outside Magazine's 'Gear of the Year' 2018. Now stocked around the world by reputable retailers such as REI, the Muncher was a great success. We're now back on Kickstarter, with what we consider to be our best product yet - The Splitter titanium multi utensil.
The joining mechanism for the tongs is a small stainless steel pin fixed to the spatula that inserts into a keyhole slot in the spork's end. The tongs use the titanium materials flex to operate at the perfect force. The spatula has a chamfered edge that allows it to get under the fiddliest of food morsels.
It also features a serrated corner edge that allows it to cut into and check if food is cooked through whilst cooking. The long spork is perfect for getting into deep food packets and can be used as both a eating and serving utensil. When joined together into tongs the spatula can still be used to get under food and then the spork grips down onto the items to grasp them firmly. Its functionality makes it great for picking up all kinds of food.
Both the spork and spatula feature a unique joining slot that allows the utensils to join together into a single compact unit when not in use. We have designed the connection so it is a simple click to separate the two utensils.
We use the best!
Titanium is one of the most common metals found in nature. It is lightweight, strong, non-toxic and resistant to corrosion. Titanium is less heat-conductive than other metals, meaning it is safer to use when cooking. The Splitter uses aerospace grade 1mm sheet titanium. One millimetre might sound thin, but once it is three dimensionally formed into shape, it is very rigid. The reduced thickness is vital for the material flex needed for the tongs to function just so. After many, many prototypes we have refined the form into everything it needs to be.
Sustainability is at the heart of what we do. Titanium is one of the most beneficial metals to recycle because it can be reused again and again with virtually no loss of quality. It is cheaper and less environmentally dangerous to recycle titanium components into new materials than it is to mine fresh titanium from the earth. Also titanium can be reused almost infinitely, a benefit that increases every time a titanium product is recycled.
The Splitter will use 100% recycled card for it packaging that is fully recyclable. This means no part of the product will ever need to end up as landfill. This is very important to all of us at Full Windsor!
The long spork allows you to get right to the bottom of deep food packets to get every last morsel of food - YUM!!!

We are all set up with our manufacturing partner who specializes in the manufacture of high-end titanium products and metal engineering. We have been working with them for the past 6 months, on everything from prototype development to drawing up the final product specifications for the Splitter. They are all ready to start making the tooling and begin the production process.
The money raised from kickstarter will allow us to make the different sets of tooling and place an order for the initial production run.
The Full Windsor team is very experienced in terms of designing and manufacturing new products. We have been doing it for the last 7 years, ever since Full Windsor was founded in 2011. Mark Windsor, our founder (skinny dude below on the right), has been working as a product designer, bringing new products to life for the last 13 years. He has worked as a product designer for some of the worlds best design firms.
We successfully launched our Muncher - Titanium Multi Utensil in 2017 fulfilling all 4553 pledges. Previous to this we successfully launched both our Nutter and Breaker Cycle Multi Tools on Kickstarter. We can't state how much we appreciate all the backers sharing the journey with us and allowing us to do what we do.
Our Muncher - Titanium Multi Utensil, which was featured in Outside Magazine's 'Gear of the Year' 2018, can also be included into your pledge when backing the Splitter Titanium Multi Utensil. Please see rewards at top of page for further details.

Risks and challenges
This will be Full Windsor's 5th Kickstarter campaign; the previous campaigns have given us valuable experience in all aspects of bringing a product to life and running a crowd funding campaign. It has made us better prepared in the challenges associated with Tooling, Production, Logistics, Communication and delivering a high-quality product.
To help minimize risks we have waited until we have everything in place before putting The Splitter on Kickstarter. From countless numbers of prototypes and testing, to developing a trusting relationship with the right manufacturer, we feel we are now ready to move forward into production with your help. However we are realistic and through experience know that no project is ever 100% free of risk.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
