Frequently Asked Questions
To the best of our knowledge, there shouldn't be an issue with the B-2 Nano Blade. It is an extremely small pocket knife or "pocket multi-tool". The AU and the UK have some very strict policies for carrying knives or even importing them into the country. As far as we know, it does not apply to knives with a 3inch blade or under. We would recommend doing some extra research just in case.
The entire length of the B-2 Bomber Nano Blade pocket knife is only 80mm long and also considered a folding-pocket knife multi-tool. Additionally, the blade is only 30mm which is equivalent to 3 centimeters (super small) while many folding / tactical pocket knives in the industry have an average blade length of around 3 inches.
Although we do not foresee any complications with customs, it is at the discretion of the agent. We will also mark the knife as a gift and label it as "pocket tool' for a smooth delivery.
In most cases, it is in a very gray situation if the blade is under 3inches. Safety being one of our main priorities for a blade of this size we decided to engineer it with a snap lever and not a button. We're not totally sure if this can justify as being legal in public, however. Our backers should use discretion when carrying the B-2 Nano Blade out into public, regardless of size. Ultimately this can be a pretty handy multi-tool at home. ;)

Technically, the B-2 Bomber Nano Blade is both locking and folding. Safety was one of the main concerns when it comes to a knife of this size. We wanted the design the be suitable for beginners as well as intermediate knife experts. The lock is a lever rather than a push button lock. You can actually use the spine to scrap splint without the worry of it coming around when the blade is locked. This makes the knife design much more robust than traditional smaller blades which are just folding.Last updated:
Unfortunately, the B-2 Nano Blade does not comply with TSA's most updated rules. We would advise leaving the B-2 Nano Blade inside your "check-in" bag.

Bomber & Company has come a long way since our very first campaign 4 years ago. Originally, when we designed the Bomber Barrel Bag, we first only sought to create a small-medium sized duffel bag to solve the problem of big duffel bags that tend to have excess space hence the name “Bomber Barrel”. When we first started we didn’t expect to start a company with a line of products. Since then, we had formed an actual company- Bomber & Co., hence the change in the Kickstarter account nameLast updated:
Due to the majority of votes for an expedited delivery date and reasons below, we will not be able to offer a non-serrated version for this current campaign. The good news is, we will most definitely be offering a non-serrated version of the B-2 Nano Blade in the next campaign. Since it was one of our most popular request, the non-serrated version will come shortly after our delivery of our current tactical style B-2 Nano Blade.
Making a non-serrated blade may seem simple but in reality, we do not have the ability to calculate the production we have to create. Unfortunately, this campaign has only offered the tactical version of this knife and a non-serrated version is a completely different product. If we were to make a different blade, we would have to dip into the funds from this B-2 Nano Blade campaign to produce a non-serrated blade without knowing how many to produce and hold in stock.
In addition, we have to make new molds and cuts for the blade and also create an entire new assembly chain. Adding a sku or variant to any business model greatly affects how the production is managed as well as the entire logistics of it. Instead of packing a single sku product, we now have to print all of our shipping labels in batches depending on the variation of each backer and ship 2 products in large production to all of our fulfilment facilities. This means we have to create an abundance of extra non-serrated knives to be housed in each facility.
Overall this would increase cost by 35-40% (assuming we only manufacture about 10K units of the non-serrated version), cause delays, and complicate logistics of shipping to all of our backers. Unfortunately, it is simply too high risk and we would not be able to deliver even in February.
We believe the primary focus should be to manufacture and deliver what was promised in the campaign and not shift our focus and funds for another product. We want to maintain a smooth and streamline process to get everything delivered before the holidays.Last updated:
Absolutely! Just simply x2 the amount of the reward tier that you pledged for. I.E.: If you pledged for $50 early bird and to double up that pledge, double up your pledge by changing the amount to $100. There’s no need to double up on the shipping. We’ll be sure to take care of the rest.Last updated:
We’ll be sending surveys via Backerkit a few weeks after the campaign comes to a close You can expect to see the survey in May.Last updated:
We’ll be sending surveys after the campaign is over where you’ll be able to make any modifications to your shipping address. Please remember to update your shipping address if you are moving or traveling around that time.Last updated:
