      Hi Greg

      Thanks for following up on my reward! I've now received it and, although I haven't had the chance to use it yet, it looks nice (the subtlety of the engraving is cool). Thanks again!

      Pleasure working with you guys. So much more than everything else I've back or the moment, Especially leverage. Your guys will go on to do great. I dream to be just like you. Take my idea execute, risk it all, and strive with respect in every step. God Bless you guys. Pop open a cold LOCAL beer smile and sit back because you can finally say. I did I. No We did it. Congrats man the first step is the gutsiest. You guys put your idea in the pockets of Americans everywhere followed by your creation in those same pockets that became conversations. with others that led to long lasting friendships that someone may never know they would of had other wise. It was the party saver. It Was the spark that caused the relationship to flourish. Congrats to you and your team for you have conquered a territory only the phone, wallet, keys, and few other things have been able to touch. The daily convenience. The daily pleasure.

      Brad:

      Thanks for the glowing reference... glad to know that the Leverage is working well. Good question about what is next on the docket, we are in the process of cooking up a couple of new products but it will be a while still before their debut. Recently we have been doing a fair bit of of infrastructural work for the company including getting our online shop up and running. ( http://www.kumquatid.com/shop/ )

      I've been using mine for several months now and I must say it's almost perfect. It works REALLY well. The only thing I might change would be the shape a bit. Only to make it slightly more ergonomic in your palm. Otherwise it's pretty much perfect and works better than any other opener I've ever tried. Great Job! What's next on the list for you guys???

      Just received word that a backer in the UK just got their reward that was shipped with the rest of the international orders ( 2nd week of December ). Not sure it is taking so long but there are several others in Great Britain that are still waiting. Let us know as your rewards continue to be delivered.

      Hi All:

      Glad to hear the deliveries are slowly but surely making it to you all... no doubt there have been some slowness in transit of the international deliveries. I'm sure the holiday mail rush didn't help the mater. Thanks for patience as our global mail systems do their work.

      Cheers,
      Greg

      I love my Leverage! It works like a charm. The extra ones I bought should be arriving to my friends for their late Christmas gift. I'm sure they will love it too.

      Happy Holidays to everyone. Glad to hear more and more of the openers are slowly but surely making it to all of our backers. We wish we could speed the process along... especially for the international orders but since the 14th of December all of the rewards are out ( other than a handful that need(ed) a follow up email etc. ). Here before too long we should be able to properly wrap up the Leverage Kickstarter fulfillment campaign.

      Mine came in the mail earlier this week. Works as promised, the packaging is nice and the look of the card is sharp. I'm curious to know if these could be made in different colours. One other thought I had is that you might want experiment, if you haven't already, with the shape of the cutout. Perhaps curving one side of it might increase the area that contacts the bottle cap and make it easier to open?

      I'm so sad, after a week of using it- my hubby lost it! The whole wallet in fact. I want to buy a replacement. I tried your website and couldn't find where to buy another. Can you direct me please?

      JM:

      We are doing company logos so tell your boss we would be happy to oblige. Beyond that we are also taking additional orders based upon the kickstarter pricing. In either case drop an email to greg.spaw@kumquatid and we will get some Leverage in your hands.

      Hi... We have got all but a couple of orders that we didn't have completed information for by last Wednesday. As for delivery, especially regarding international it seems that there has been quite a varied amount of time that delivery is taking. Hope yours makes it to you soon. :)

      Creator JM on December 20, 2012

      Love my CF Leverage. My boss saw it and really liked it as well. He wondered if it would be possible to engrave/silk screen a simple company logo on it and give them away as a gift to customers?

    34. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Adam Cartlidge on December 20, 2012

      Any ideas or estimates for when international deliveries will arrive (Northern Ireland to be specific). Can't wait to get mine and hoping it comes before Christmas so I can put it to very good use ;)

      Received my bottle opener today (I live in the Netherlands), and I agree with Darren Myers: a very fast project. Actually the first project that i backed that actually delivers! (while being not the first project that i backed, mind you). Just opened my first beer with it. The opener didn't get scratched, as I expected more or less (sorry for the mistrust...:-) ). Thank you.

      Hey Guys
      Now that the Kickstarter run is coming to an end I think you should update your website with options to purchase bulk lots with custom etching (eg company logos).
      I haven't got mine yet but i'm already keen to purchase more.
      Keep up the great work.
      I'm also another vote for sending international orders ASAP
