The Tiny Titanium Knife - Mini Knife

***Order Here***

Inspired by the need to make a small pocket knife that looks good AND feels great. A fully functioning knife that is actually pocket friendly. So discrete the TSA probably won't even notice it.

This knife embodies discrete. You won't even feel it on your key ring - or in your pocket.

.

The body has been specially contoured to give extra grip, making the knife delightfully ergonomic. 

.

It makes easy work of difficult packaging

.

.

The Tiny Titanium Knife is motorbike ignition friendly :) And it won't weigh down your keys when they're in a car ignition. 

.

Very Chic.....

.

The Tiny Titanium Knife is super versatile

 It rips through cardboard boxes with ease.

.

From cutting cable ties and tags from clothes, to sharpening your pencils and cutting off strapping. The uses of this little blade are far and wide. 

.

This knife even opens packages

Look.. just like a regular box cutter.

.

It's Stylish 

You can wear it as a pendant if you like. It wouldn't be amiss on a charm bracelet either!

.

And it works on the farm..

 .

The Blade clicks into place.

The open / close mechanism clicks the blade into place. So when it's closed it won't come open in your pocket, and when it's open it requires some pressure to close.

.

Easy to use

The tab that is used for opening the blade (seen in the above gif) doubles as a convenient pad for your finger to rest on, so you can apply extra pressure when needed.

.

You can hold your keys when using the knife to give you extra control.

.

Size

The Tiny Knife is a nice-and-light 6.5 grams (around 0.22 oz).    

It's 26mm (approx 1") long when closed, 15.5mm ( approx 5/8") wide and 5.4mm (just under 7/32") thick.

.

Materials

  • Made from quality materials, Titanium and Stainless Steel. These materials have a proven track record and will withstand the test of time.
  • The Body of the Tiny Knife is machined from one solid billet of Grade 5 Titanium (Grade 5 Titanium is the go to material for the Aerospace industry)
  • The Blade of the Tiny Knife is machined from one piece of 440C Stainless Steel, Hardened and Tempered to 58-60Hrc. (440C is a highly durable and corrosion resistant stainless steel widely used in Knife making.)

.

Bespoke manufacturing

  • Each Mini Knife is individually machined from solid billet !!! 
  • No cheap and nasty mass manufacturing techniques.
  • No rivets, welding, or screws

Consists of only three parts...

The Titanium Body / The Stainless Steel Blade / One Tiny Ceramic Ball

Where Is The Tiny Knife Made?

I'm a designer and machinist with my own CNC machines, and will be making these Tiny Knives myself from start to finish. 

I have successfully delivered five Kickstarter projects so I know what it takes. Apart from outsourcing the surface finish to a friend, I'm producing this Knife entirely at my home workshop. 

We're a "family business"... I have my wife Rachel working with me most days in the workshop, and one of my daughters too (when she's home from college).

Everything from machining …to surface-finishing …to shipping is done right here where I live in New Zealand.

FAQs 

How Do I Pledge For Multiple Rewards?  

If you want more than one of any Reward, then just add the additional funds to your pledge.  

Why Don't You Have Any Stretch Goals?

I like to keep this project as simple as possible so I can deliver your Rewards without any possible complications or delays.  

How will this be shipped ?  

I will be using an express courier service, fully tracked from New Zealand to your door.  

This project is promoted by Jellop , the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 500+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $235MM raised between them.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

The only concern I have is that the project may get significantly over-funded. If this happens, then the worst case scenario is that Rewards may be delayed - but I will keep in constant communication with you through Updates. This will not effect the December rewards. I am ready to ramp-up into production of more when this project is funded.
