About

 The patent pending Metperial multi tool is manufactured with lost wax investment casting, the material its made from 440C stainless that has a hardness of 58-60 HRC, the highest strength, hardness and wear resistance of all the stainless alloys.

The Metperial multi tool is also manufactured from CPM S35VN stainless  that is EDM wire cut then CNC machined out of flat bar, the flat bar is imported from the USA, CPM S35VN has incredible wear resistance (edge holding) combined with bombproof toughness that has a hardness of 58 HRC.

Metperial  multi tool are also made from GR 5 Titanium, known as Ti6Al4V that is vacuumed lost wax investment casted that is highly suited for a bicycle multi-tool, has a hardness of 35 HRC, the razor blade part of the multi tool is removed on the titanium model, the same with the center punch that is replaced with a 4mm allen key allowing 3 sizes of the allen keys, 4mm 5mm and 6mm as sketch drawings pictured at the bottom of the page show. 

The stainless Metperial multi-tool is yet to have a wire stripper built into centre of the imperial end as sketch drawings pictured at the bottom of the page show. 

The photos pictured below are a mock-up only of the Metperial multi-tool that gives the general idea of its uses, the final manufactured product will have outstanding quality and more added features.

Metperial multi tool has a small hook disguised under the front 10mm tooth that becomes a bottle opener.

The above film shows the quick ratcheting action of the Metperial multi-tool, the 10mm and 3/8” ends are able to get into tight spaces such as a car or boat battery nut terminals.

Metperial multi-tool cuts up to a 6mm rope down to a fine string.

Metperial multi-tool can trim plants to cutting flowers.

 Metperial multi-tool razor-blade cuts up to 6mm plastic cord surrounding electrical wire which is stripped with the wire stripper yet to be added during manufacture, as sketch drawings pictured show at the bottom of the page.  

Metperial multi-tool is a survival tool that can be used to cut free a seat belt if trapped in vehicle after a traffic accident, or after falling from a height and hanging with a safety harness that is cutting of blood circulation.

Metperial stainless multi-tools blade is designed so a child cannot cut fingers on any angle while pressing into the razor sharp blade.

This designed wedge shape is made to allow for both sides to act as guides for a fine file or a polishing stone to sharpen a razor sharp blade.

 Metperial multi-tool is used if trapped in a car accident to smash vehicle window.

Metperial multi-tool is a centre punch, there are measurements in metric and imperial imbedded on the sides to assist marking holes for drilling or other small measuring task.  

 Metperial multi-tool has a flat screw driver.

 Metperial multi-tool has a philips screw driver.

Stainless Metperial multi-tools have 5mm align key above the centre punch and the titanium Metperial multi-tool has a 6mm and a 4mm added replacing the centre punch.

 The stainless Metperial multi-tools have a 4 mm allen key on the metric wrench side,  the titanium Metperial multi-tool has a 5 mm allen key on the metric wrench side and 6mm allen on the Imperial wrench  side with the 4mm allen key replacing the centre punch.

 Metprial multi-tool Imperial sizes are 3/8” 5/16" 1/4" 3/16" .130”,  a 1/4" hex bit holder is to replace razor blade on the Titanium multi-tool during manufacturing as shown in sketch at the bottom of page.

Metperial stainless multi-tool metric sizes are 10mm 9mm 8mm 7mm 6mm and the Titanium are 10mm 9mm 8mm 7mm 6mm 5mm 4mm 3mm.

 Metperial multi-tool has a .130” spoke wrench in back of the imperial jaw and has  a .127”  and  .136” spoke wrenches added during the manufacture process which can be seen in sketch at bottom of page.

 The flat screw driver is used to lever open paint can lids which the underneath part has grove shapes that fits on the edge part of paint can to stop slipping of the edge when prying open can lid.

 Metperial multi tool hook is a can-opener that is placed over the top edge of a baked bean can, then the lower flat screw driver end is pressured  downwards cutting into the top side of can.

 Stainless Metperial multi-tool can sharpen to a high qauilty wood chisel, the Titanium Metperial multi-tool is a small paint scraper.

 Metperial multi-tool cuts open mail packages, cut paper clippings and open plastic sealed packages.   

 Metperial multi-tool bottom edge is a finger nail file that has a curve to suit nail shape, also becomes a gripping area, the other side can be made to have logo or web sites casted or machined  into the edge for promotion gifts or rewards.

 Flat screw driver can clean under finger nails.

 Slide show  illustrates Ice and our son Myark and I when we manufacture at a lost wax investment casting factory, Ice speaks fluent Chinese language for excellent communications, we have hands on all QC and  manufacturing procedures that is shown with a first design of the Metperial multi tool that is on the end of the Myark multi wrench that can be seen  with the end result  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3-EsetvqRg  

Pictured above are our two sons, Casper and Myark who have been helping prepare our Kickstarter project, they are illustrating some of the prototype titanium wrenches that are also bottle openers.

Risks and challenges

Over the last 17 years Ice and I have lived in China for 8 years while developing prototype ideas with EDM and CNC machinery, including veterans in designing and manufacturing mold tooling for lost wax investment castings, including titanium vacuum lost wax investment castings, heat treatment, developing springs and fixtures, electroplating, polishing and much more.
During that time we have now two sons, Casper, 5 years old and Myark, 10 years old who travel at our sides during our adventurous journey, Ice has learnt fluent Chinese language for excellent communications.
We have been developing ideas in China because of the advanced technology and affordability, also the service and respect we receive in China is outstanding as the factories allow my 100% QC on each and every manufacture procedure.
The risk and challengers are not many as we have been developing much more complicated multi tools that had springs as well as fixtures designed and manufactured, “this can be seen on this link demo” https://www.youtube.com/watch…
The new Metperial multi-tool is a small single piece of metal that can maintain its shape during castings and is an easy shape to heat treat, then test structurally for weaknesses...
We have much experience with EDM wire cutting and CNC so to machine the CPM S35VN stainless Metperial multi-tool, I cannot see any difficulties except to keep prices so a Kickstarter sponsors is totally satisfied with value for their money, as we value a Kickstarter sponsors support who we will share in detail with feedback of our journey.
