What's Next?

Hi Folks!

Well, I'm in good shape with the BigShot list. Everyone who signed up on the list during the one month period that it was open have been contacted. I'd say about 96% of folks responded which was an incredible response I thought. Thanks so much everyone for helping me see this project to fruition!

There will be more BigShots coming in a week or so for those folks who wanted more than the two that I allowed in the first round of direct email sales. I'll do at least one or possibly two more rounds of these before making a significant change to the design. There will also be a small price nudge upwards on the next batch to $55 each and hopefully that will not be too excessive.

In other news, ti rulers are at the laser marking company now for the measuring scales to be applied. They should be back by next week I would think.

I'm back into sheath mode and will be unveiling the new fixed blade knife in the next couple of days. They will be released via general sale and there is quite a large number of them coming.

More info coming soon!

hi,

i assume you will be giving us some details of the bigshot re-design? we will need to decide if we should buy this model or the next - or both!

thanks

I'm thinking of adding some milling features similar to what you might see on a Fenix or Surefire flashlight body. In addition, I am playing with a slightly slimmer but taller shape.

I look forward to receiving my BigShot! Almost missed it, since my stupid email sent the message to my junkmail, but I've rectified that & look forward to drinking a chilled dram of rum out of my BigShot...
