Never miss a thing with Vulcan

VULCAN INSPIRATION 

The inspiration behind Vulcan developed from my pet hate for eating my lunch on the go with plastic cutlery and as you well know, it is frustratingly useless. I wanted to create the perfect cutlery set that could fit in my pocket, be practical and actually allow me to enjoy my food. After over a year of scribbling down my ideas onto a notepad, I finally arrived at what I think is the perfect portable cutlery design, however I was not content with that. I decided to cram in as many cool (and useful) features as possible so that the Vulcan could be useful for everyone in several different situations, whether it be for eating lunch at work, camping, DIY and even opening a cold beer. I opted to produce Vulcan from Titanium due to its amazing properties - super strong, lightweight, non-toxic, durable, non-corrosive & heat resistant. This was a no brainer and so Vulcan was born.

VULCAN COMPONENTS

Vulcan is comprised of 4 individual sections:

Vulcan Titanium Knife

- Rope holder

- Screwdriver
- Square wrench
- Pry bar
- Phone stand
- Grab Hook
- Saw
- Rope cutter
- Cutting Blade

VULCAN MANUFACTURING PROCESS

The net outline for each component is initially chalked onto the flat sheet of Titanium. Each shape is then cut out on my (somewhat out-dated) CSC machine to create the basis for each section. The cut out section is then pressed forcefully against our moulds into the desired shape with our hydraulic press. The components are then finished as required, the rough edges are buffered off and the blades are sharpened to create the perfect finished article.

VULCAN IS PERSONAL

Vulcan has been designed so that you have your own personal cutlery set, no more sharing cutlery and bad hygiene !

VULCAN  IS POCKET-SIZED 

Vulcan measures only 14.5cm when compacted, allowing it to slip un-noticeably into your pocket for the day or can be clipped onto your bag. Simple.

VULCAN IS SUPER CLEAN

As Vulcan is created from Titanium, food products are unable to stick to its polished surface and can be easily cleaned with a quick splash of water. Titanium is also 100% non-toxic and antibacterial.

VULCAN OVER-ACHIEVES 

Vulcan is a hard working over-achiever and can surpass all challenges put in its path. It also enjoys rewarding you after your hard days work by opening your beer for you.

VULCAN REVOLUTION  

In order for the nifty Vulcan to survive, it needs you to join the campaign and get involved. The hard work has been done, the design is complete and patent pending, the prototype has been produced and is phenomenal, far superior to what was imagined. All that now stands in Vulcans way is funding to order the Titanium sheets. Once we have sourced the Titanium, production can commence and soon we can all have our own little bit of Rambo, whether it be in the office or the sticks !

VULCAN FUTURE AIMS

The future aim of Vulcan is to invest in more capable machinery in order to create, develop and produce amazing innovative Titanium gadgets for you.

Risks and challenges

Vulcan has been going through the product development phase for over 1 year now. I have crammed in as many cool functions as possible and now happy with the design. The prototype is amazing and is far greater than I thought it would be. It does everything it should and more. The only challenge holding Vulcan back is funding. Once we have raised the required funds, the Titanium sheets can be purchased, first phase production can initiate and the fun can begin. At this point it is not a matter of if you will receive a Vulcan Multi-tool, but when this bad boy will arrive at your door.
