As humans of Planet Earth we have evolved and progressed so immensely from our caveman days in large part due to the tools we have created. Archeologists have discovered so much about what life was like for early humans based on the tools they used. In the spirit of Voyager Golden Record time capsule, we at StatGear have created the BitzBlade 2.0 as an epic tribute to the human ability, the drive to create and our aptitude for advancement.
In 2015 we launched the original BitzBlade campaign on Kickstarter which had over 700 backers. It was received very well but many of our backers had some great comments and recommendations for us to consider in the next iteration. We took all these suggestions into consideration when designing the BitzBlade 2.0.
Here is a breakdown of the 1.0 & 2.0 differences:
We wanted the BitzBlade 2.0 to be your go-to EDC tool so we had to incorporate as many useful and commonly used features into it as possible.
We also wanted the BitzBlade 2.0 to be as easy to carry as possible so you can carry it alone and have one of the replaceable tools/blades stored in the tool as well as one double sided bit. You can also carry the BitzBlade in the included heavy duty nylon pouch which will hold the BitzBlade, additional 8 double sided bits and the remaining two interchangeable tools/blades.
If you wanted another carry option you can purchase the additional Black or Carbon Fiber handmade kydex sheath which allows you to comfortably carry the BitzBlade 2.0 on your belt. There's nothing like the sound and feel when you "snap" the BitzBlade 2.0 int the custom molded kydex sheath.
Risks and challenges
As the saying goes, this isn't our first rodeo! We've had several successful Kickstarter campaigns and an entire fulfillment team at our disposal to help get the rewards out in a timely fashion. We are manufacturing the BitzBlade 2.0 with the same factory that currently produces many of our top selling products such as the TriTac EDC Tactical Pens & Pocket Samurai Keychain Knives. We are very confident in the quality of their work and ability to produce on schedule.
