A TOOL WHEN YOU NEED IT
How often do you find yourself in need of a tool for a quick fix? A loose screw, a non-twist bottle, a package to open. Often, the tool you need is buried in a drawer or lost in the garage, turning a 20 second job into 5-10 minutes.
Or worse, you find yourself in a tricky tool situation away from home.
Talon is the tool you keep with you. It's lightweight, compact, versatile and just might be your new best friend.
BREAKTHROUGH IN DESIGN & TECH
Designed by Chijoff+Co, an internationally award-winning industrial design firm, the Talon is the perfect balance of design and function. Not only does the unique composite material make it ultra lightweight and strong, it's the secret to Talon's patent pending design.
The unibody Talon features a compartment that holds two hex bits. This is a design feature that is only possible with the advanced composite material.
Talon is truly unique. 40% lighter than titanium yet as strong as die cast metal and does not scratch your phone.
We are happy to announce that all stretch goals have been reached and available and most importantly FREE.
Stretch goal #1 - All hex bits for Talons and toolpacks come with a titanium coating for extra wear resistance. Its also makes them bling worthy with the gold finish.
Stretch goal #2 - Everyone who orders a toolpack receives a free elastomer holder for their bits.
The Talon adapts to your needs and ensures you have the tools to tackle any challenges. The internal storage compartment allows you to pick and choose the tools you might need for your next outing. Maybe it's snowboarding, cycling or about town. It's your choice and the Talons got your back.
The Talon is a world first patent pending design with a number of unique features:
All the tools you need The Talon comes with 17 tools featuring metric and imperial wrenches and rulers, box cutter, bottle opener and comes standard with phillips and flat head hex drives.
Swap out the hex drives for your next adventure. Whether you need allen head through to torx, the Talon holds any standard 1/4” hex drive to ensure it moves with you.
The Talon makes using the screwdriver a pleasure by putting you in control. The original socket design allows your hand to be positioned similar as you would with a regular screwdriver. A feature that many pocket tools can't do.
The Talon lets you store 2 standard hex drives within its body. A flexible elastomer keeps the tools locked in place and ready when you need them.
Lightweight 40% lighter than titanium the Talon is perfect to go where ever you do. Compact Packing over 20 tools in a pocket sized carry.
The main body of the talon is made from a single material resulting in increased strength , stiffness and badassness
The advanced composite material allows you to carry your talon without fear of scratching your latest phone or tablet (unlike other multitools)
The Talon complies to current TSA requirements for air travel.
The Talon pushes the limits of material technology and functionality. The patent pending design is only possible through the use of the advanced composite material. This super strong material enables the dual purpose storage compartment to function as a socket.
The Talon is made in Melbourne, Australia. We will be using the same factory that produces our current One bottle opener and have worked closely over the last few months on perfecting the design for manufacture. This collaboration ensures that everyone involved has a deep understanding of the project and the standards we expect. Having a local manufacturer means that that we have reduced the risks normally associated with overseas manufacture. No waiting on shipments, faulty products and delivery delays. We will be right there in front of the machine as they come off the line. It doesn't get any more personal than that.
Tooling commenced! Yes that's right. Normally campaigns wait till the funds are received but we made the decision to launch into the production process. As a result we are already a number of weeks into tooling the molds needed for production and expect them to be ready in the next few weeks. As a result we will be delivering the Talons in time for Christmas.

Risks and challenges
This is our 2nd Kickstarter project and one of many that we have delivered in our consulting work. We are working with the same supplier we used for our first campaign and have shipped thousands of products around the world. We also have the necessary distributors lined up to ensure smooth shipment around the world.
In short we know what we are doing and you should be confident that we will deliver what we say we will, when we say we will. Should any unforeseen issue arise, rest assured that we will handle them and ensure you are informed throughout the process. We appreciate the support and faith our backer have placed in us and is something that we care deeply about. Just like the Talon, we've got your back.
Supply chain Risk: We are very proud to work closely with our manufacture and as they are local we are able to be onsite during production. They have been involved with the project since its concept so understand our requirements in detail. This ensures quality product is made and ready to ship in time for Christmas. As we are not manufacturing overseas we do not have any risk of delays waiting for goods, quality inspections, customs, etc.
One thing we've learnt after designing many products is that no matter what problems are presented there is always a solution. We always work hard to find the answers and the solutions that work.
Everything is ready to go. We have also started the tooling process to ensure we could hit Christmas delivery. Kickstarter holds a special place for us as it is where Tactica was born. This is why we wanted to launch the Talon on Kickstarter and give everyone an opportunity to support our next adventure.
