Hi Kickstarters, 

We are excited to be back with our 23rd project and show you our newly redesigned titanium pocket tool (TPT)! It's the newest version of the original TPT that consolidates our favorite everyday carry (EDC) tools & features into a minimal multi-tool that really packs a punch.

Thanks for checking it out and sharing the project link ( http://kck.st/2HF57Ag )with your friends!

Some great websites that were kind enough to feature our products in the past.

Design Challenges

When you completely change the mechanism and add more features into a previous design, it's really, really challenging for it to not change the overall aesthetics and dimensions of the original. We spent numerous months making sure that the new TPT didn't stray from it's roots so it would stay true to its deceivingly minimal appearance, pocket-ability, and original length and height.

Quickly Change Inserts Safely & Without Any Tools

Removable Pocket Clip  

You spoke, we listened, and added a unique (removable) screw-less pocket clip that seems to magically secure itself. If you ever want to remove it, just take the TPT apart, remove the securing pin, and remove the pocket clip.

When the pocket clip is removed, the opening doubles as a clean-out port.

Our Safe-Carry Inserts

We designed these safe carry inserts to be travel-friendly and still be very useful. The edge of the insert will open taped packages without any issues but it's dull to the touch so it won't cut your fingers.

Why Kickstarter?

Our company (Big Idea Design LLC) started back in 2011 after our very first kickstarter project. So, to us it feels like home. We don't have (or want) any VC's, parent companies, or investors so we bring our new products to the kickstarter community. We simply love being an active part of this community and making unique products with our backers that are both affordable and built to last.

Risks and challenges

This is our 23rd kickstarter project so we are very comfortable knowing what it will take to bring this project to a successful completion. The only risk we foresee would be shipping a little bit later than the estimated dates show if the project is extremely over-funded. We have planned in extra time but if a production or shipping delay happens, we will let update everyone know about it ASAP through a project update. The pocket tools shown are also functional prototypes and the minor design elements or dimensions may need to be slightly adjusted during mass production to ensure we produce the best pocket tools that we can for everyone.

Safety/Liability Disclaimer: This is a tool and not a toy, so it should never be in the reach or possession of any children or minors. Tools have the potential to be very dangerous and we do not accept any responsible whatsoever for any harm, damage, illegal activity, injury, etc. while using this tool. Simply said, please be safe folks.

Actual razor blades / sharp utility blades will NOT be included due to safety and shipping concerns.
