Update #37

More Titanium...

Comment

I just wanted to give my backers a heads up on an project that a couple of my friends are running.

Titanium Chopsticks!

Since you have all proven that you like nice things, made in the USA, from Titanium, I figured you should know about this project.

These sticks are NICE, and they are made by personal friends of mine.

If you've ever though that you'd like to have your own set of sticks, Here they are.

If you know someone who needs a good set of sticks, Here they are.

If you just want to show how cool you are, and thumb your nose at everyone using disposable sticks, Here they are!

Get on board, and get a pair.

SEE THEM HERE

Update #35

That's a Wrap Folks!

Well everyone, the final TiBolts shipped out today!

Over 530 packages mailed, and over 600 pens.

Other than the 5 people that have not responded to the survey, we are complete.

This has been a long, exhausting campaign filled with lots of ups and downs.
It's been a remarkably challenging journey, from the mid-project Kickstarter SNAFU, to the costly supplier issues and other concerns that drove me to miss deadlines.
I definitely learned a bunch and appreciate everyone's patience as we wrapped this project up.

The ups were great, from watching the project hit 100% in the first day to seeing all the press the pen received.
Looking at 400+ pens sitting assembled on my bench at one time was a real nice highlight, as was loading up the final pens on the postal truck today and watching them roll on down the road!

So far, response from backers has been overwhelmingly positive, so that is nice.
Every little bit of positive feedback really helps make me feel good, and makes it worth the effort.

I feel like we made a GREAT pen.
Especially for the price.

And I love the fact that we made it right here.
Right in the USA.

All in all, it was an interesting experience, and I sure did learn a lot.

My family and my business are in a better position now than we were in November when I launched this campaign.

For that, I thank you.

Remember, keep an eye out at Fellhoelter.com for more pens, knives, and other projects!

Update #34

Big day of shipping.

All but 46 are either in the postal system, or packed to go out tomorrow.
Turns out I was shorted 100 mailing envelopes on my last order!
So, more are set to arrive early next week.

186 of them were scanned by my postal carrier today, there's a picture of a few of them at the bottom of the update.

6 folks have still not responded to the survey,
We'll sort them out when they do respond.

If you got a tracking #, odds are your package shipped today, or will tomorrow.

If you don't have a tracking #, yours will ship next week.

If you got the wrong tracking number (about 30 folks) don't worry, the packages are addressed correctly, it was just a glitch in the email, and you received tracking for a different package.

We are getting real close to having this project complete folks.

Your backing and patience are greatly appreciated.

Keep an eye on Fellhoelter.com for news on the general retail release of the TiBolt which will follow shortly after the campaign is fulfilled.

Couldn't have done it without you guys.
