Three years ago we successfully launched Kii RING - An Effortless Keyring on Kickstarter with the support of nearly 2,000 backers.  We are now launching a perfect companion for it.  TiBO is a Micro Titanium Bottle Opener and Multi Tool.  It virtually disappears on your keychain but comes in handy when you need it most.  This is the coolest everyday carry (EDC) combo everyone should have!

DESIGN:

We have enjoyed using TiBO for more than two years.  It virtually disappears on your keychain but always there when you need it most.  Our friends really love it and they provide invaluable feedback to make it even more awesome: 

1 - More functions: We added a flat screwdriver and it became more useful in so many situations.  It required special milling operation but it was all worth it.

2 - More stylish.  The new modern look really stands out.

MANUFACTURING:

TiBO is made from Grade 5 Titanium (6AL-4V).  It is a premium Titanium Alloy which is super strong, lightweight and corrosion resistant.  It is also very expensive and hard to machine.

The manufacturing process is extensive to make this tiny mighty part: parts are waterjet cut from Titanium plate, then individually removed and ground to remove tab.  Each part is put in a milling machine to make two chamfers for the screwdriver, then put into a vibratory tumbler twice to remove rough edges and add a smooth finish.

Risks and challenges

We had successfully launched three projects on Kickstarter previously. We learned a lot from our past manufacturing and fulfillment processes. There is always risk and unexpected issues in launching a new product. We currently use a small contractor to make TiBO for us. If support is high for our project it will potentially cause some delay due to limited capacity. We will pre-order material and start production early if this happens.
