The EWC is a stream line mini pocket knife that conforms to the way you want to carry. Go from pocket clip to key chain clip in just seconds with the press of a button - carry YOUR way, everyday! This feature also allows you to quickly separate the knife from your keys when you need to use it, and just as easily return it to the key ring when you're finished. The objective was to produce a compact robust product with a polished style. The thumb stud has been designed to blend in with the profile of the knife, while still being functional for opening the blade.
100% manufactured and assembled in the USA.
The overall size is compact enough to carry on a key chain yet robust enough to carry in your pocket with the interchangeable clip system. Simply push the button on the side to release the Key chain clip and pull it out, then push in the pocket clip and it will automatically lock in place.
The EWC is clear-cut for its simplicity. The clean lines of the EWC handle generate a smooth look. When closed, the blade is completely recessed into the body, which gives it a slim profile.

Clip System Configurations:
Our goal with the EWC was to have compact quick change system that allowed you to take it with you no matter if you wanted to carry it on your keys or just in your pocket. A key clips on each of your key rings makes switching between key sets a breeze. And use paracord to connect a clip to your bag or anywhere else you like to keep a knife. The key chain clips also work as bottle openers, so it's not wasted weight when you carry it alone.
The blades are 2.95 inches long and made from hardened D2 steel. D2 holds a great edge over time even with heavy use. The thumb nut is disguised into the case, the blades flip out easily and stays securely in place via a slip joint. A slip joint works by that the blade is held in position by a strong "backspring" which biases them towards the open or closed position
The blades are sharp and ready for operation.
If you have never heard of D2 before here is a great break down of how well the blade stays sharp with D2 verse other knife blade materials. You might ask why didnt we chose the materials above D2, these materials were not effective as D2 when compared with a cost vs the increased benefit of the material.
Key Chain Clip:
The Key chain Clip doubles as a bottle opener. Super compact and made from 304 SS, leave it on your key chain as a bottle opener when not using the knife or using the pocket clip.
The pocket clip, made from 304 Stainless steel, snaps into the knife in seconds. If you dont want to carry your keys but need a compact knife, snap in the pocket clip and go.
The knife is marked using a electro-chemical process that etches into the case without adding color. The result is a simple, clean marking with a classy look to it. We like to call it a Ghost marking because of how it blends in and disappears depending on the angle the light hits it. We are proud to put our name on this knife, but don't want it to look like a billboard.
Risks and challenges
This is our 3rd go around on a kickstarter campaign. We understand the challenges. The biggest challenge we face is to spread the word about our product. We believe in the product and truly think that the end user will be 100% satisfied in it. We want to make sure that we impactfully launch the product through Kickstarter so that it will continue to be successful in the future. We are going to leverage our social media networks to make sure we get the project out in front of everyone. We also encourage all of our backers to spread the word to help us reach our funded goal.
From a delivery and manufacturing standpoint, we control our own destiny by doing all manufacturing in house. This campaign will allow us to reach critical quantities that make batch manufacturing operations cost effective. We have flexibility in our supply chain to spool up for potential large volumes.
We greatly appreciate the support as we launch the knifeLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
