About

Pure Titanium EDC Tool - VerTex

Hi guys, here's a cool slice of pure & awesome 100% TC4 titanium EDC tool - VerTex, an awesome toy for you grown-up kids - strong, durable, incredibly lightweight for comfort, and really cool style. Not a tool-ish kind of a guy? Who gives a damn? It’ll be a cool piece to carry and great conversation starter and makes a great décor anywhere!

There are 4 different surface finishing options. Above shown is the original raw titanium finish with simply gorgeous stripes running down on the surface, awesome finish. But we also have 3 more different surface finishing that we offer:

Let’s look at some of the usages -  various size wrench:

Drink your coffee at the pace you want, punch a hole, stop sipping and make the damn thing flow.

Those frustrating packaging wraps, don't know where to start? No need to go out and grab knife/scissors, his is the perfect tool for it.

 Very important to have a bottle opener around, gotta drink that beer.

 Attack even the most finicky caps/lids to open.

Works with all standard hex bit drivers, and there is a holder for 1/4 bit in the middle, and each card will come with 2 O-rings to keep anything you like in the middle slot.

 Perfect tight fit for any standard driver bit.

 Perfect tool for all standard socket wrench bits.

Great décor in your office, home, ketchen, bathroom, garage, well you name it, anywhere.

The design? Of course, it came from napkins and papers, just doodling, and after consulting friends, families and more technical people around me, it really came to life!

After all things considered, such as the overall aesthetics, functionality, strength, weight, durability, costs and even things such as not poking or cutting yourself, and coolness factors, etc. etc. This became the final drawing:

Pricing & Shipping

For the project I priced these titanium tools honestly as low as I can possibly do. With all things considered, for the amount of titanium you get, material, machining & tooling, and the exclusivity, it really is an incredible deal, as you will find similar titanium EDC tools for $200 or more. Shipping is combined on 2 or more, and also take advantage of early-bird offerings. After Kickstarter project each unit will retail at $99 or MORE, in USD $ currency plus shipping.

I will find the best way of shipping possible, and I mostly use Canada Post tracked package. Shipping charges out of Canada are notorious and we're known for it. Naturally if you really don't need tracking information it will be less. Please message me if that's the route you would like to take, but I strongly recommend tracked shipments.

OK, more on the project!

Knobs and handles impossible to turn because of rust & paint? Great pivot!

 Great tool, carry, toy, all that and yeah, what an eye-candy!

FULFILMENT & DELIVERY

The lead time for production is roughly 35 days, so after the survey and completion of project, another month, so it will be roughly end of May as estimated delivery date. It is critical for all the backers to complete the survey as soon as the survey comes out so we can produce the rewards accordingly.

UPDATE #2:

CHEAPER SHIPPING OPTIONS ADDED

 

Hello again guys, I think quite a few people have advised me that such extensive shipping for everyone is an OVERKILL, and yes I want to make this happen and give all backers options, SO! Now there are 2 options for each reward level - one with tracking and insurance, and one without, which is much cheaper - and yes you're right, probably very safe as well.

So if you've already backed and prefer a cheaper shippiong option, please move the pledge over.

Thanks!!!

UPDATE #1:

SHIPPING CHARGES EXPLAINED

Hello backers & Kickstarters, thanks for checking out this project!

Many people have messaged me about shipping charges to tell me it is HIGH. To clarify the shipping charge includes FULL insurance, Tracking, Air-Freight to your door as well as nice & proper packaging that you will get the tools safe & sound to you with ZERO issue or risk. These shipping charges are actually slightly LOWER THAN ACTUAL charges, and I am covering some of it in many cases, and I will NOT make money on shipping.

I've checked out many VERY successful projects, just to find that the comments sections FULL of COMPLAINTS that backers did not receive their rewards, delays & damages, or things just going missing, etc. and with tight budget/margin that the creators work with, often times the creators just cannot deal with them, or take care of the backers.

Guys trust me the shipping is SOLID. These are titanium metal and simply cannot go in regular mail with zero insurance or tracking.

HOWEVER IF you prefer cheaper method I will work it out with you later to issue you partial refund on shipping, but that would create some potential risk. We can discuss further as project goes on.

Once again, thanks all those who checking the project, and big thank you to all the backers!

Risks and challenges

One potential risk is the possible delay, as we will be outsourcing the production/manufacturing to a 3rd party Titanium specialist. However I am confident that the lead-time will be around 45 days plus QC process, as I have picked the very best reputable factory who's made a ton of titanium products including known projects on KS as well. If any, delays will be minor.
