 "Sharktooth" is one of our first designs in our Tactical Apparel venture.  Initially designed to look like a fish, I decided to go a more practical route with the concept of an arrowhead/tooth.  

 Some obvious functions can be noted about Sharktooth, but many will discover more when they receive theirs.  You are the survivor, after all. 

Sharktooth Dimensions: 1.775" x .906" 

In this tool's design, I added a feature that most manufacturers would fail to replicate, a "micro-tooth" saw.  This feature allows the user to achieve very fine clean cuts with an extremely-fine tooth edge.  

 Archwing, LLC prides itself on supporting local business.  Not only are you supporting new product development, you're supporting small business growth, which is good economics.

Sharktooth can be worn as a utility earring as well as a necklace.

Note to Backers: 

When design meets functionality, you open up new doors to possibility.  With funding, not only are we creating this product, you are enabling us to venture into new engineering frontier.  For that, you deserve the biggest thanks of all.

Why does this need a Kickstarter?

Your funding will be used for a manufacturing contract where custom parts may be created under "bulk-order" so the manufacturer can allocate time and space to create the new parts in high-production for a low price, passing the savings onto you.    

Risks and challenges

The most difficult part of this project was the redesign. Initially, this design was a mess of extraneous details, some of which had no functional capability. I wanted to be strict with what I put into this design, so only the useful details remained.

The second most difficult part was finding the right manufacturer for my engineering needs. In my past I interned as an engineer in the aerospace industry and frequently had to work on a professional business level with contractors to get things done, so eventually I found the right company with the right mechanical capability.
