almost 4 years ago – Thu, Jul 21, 2016 at 09:41:02 PM

Howdy, Well it's time to LOCK DOWN the surveys and move forward with production.... But 52 of you have NOT filled out your survey yet. If this is You please do it now.

I resent you a link to your survey last night. Please find it and respond. For many of you I still need a shipping address.

I will lock down the surveys tonight at 10 PM EST. This means you will no longer be able to change your selections or customize your MSK-1 package.

THANK YOU to the many hundreds who have filled out your surveys, made your selections and pre-ordered add-Ons!!!

I can't wait to get production going... And get you your MSK-1 and / or other gear.

Talk Soon,

almost 4 years ago – Tue, Jul 19, 2016 at 05:05:20 PM

MSK-1 Surveys are Sent - 2 Weeks of Back to Back Survival Training Finished and a Trip to Canada (where I'll be until around August 1st) - Whoo... Now I Finally a moment to sit down and give you an MSK-1 Update...

Video - Survival Summer Camp: This is what David's been doing for a couple of weeks...

MSK-1 Knife Updates:

1) This week I am going to close down the surveys... so I you have not answered your's please do ASAP... otherwise you will get the default selections, right hand carry on your sheath and Green handle on your knife. 

2) Once the surveys are locked down, I will be getting our manufacturers going by providing quantities for the first production run. We have 49 individual part numbers... LOL.

3) I've been working on the FINAL FINAL ACS sheath system with our prototyper / manufacturer - AMSPRO - to make the sheath better, stronger and faster. 

4) I've been working with Andy the owner of Solo Scientific on perfecting our FireSteel Rods. Andy has a proprietary composition to his firesteel that sparks better and hotter in any situation. You will get this with your MSK-1 Firesteel. I'm excited. 

5) So, by the beginning of August, production will begin. So, we are in good shape. 

More updates to follow in coming days...


I Broke It...
about 4 years ago – Fri, Jul 01, 2016 at 09:46:11 PM

I almost cried today when my coach at BackerKit told me that I broke part of what we worked so hard to get set up (this week) - so I could send out the surveys today.  

Well, I got in a rush and I deleted a bunch of Add-On packages that were hooked to survey questions that are effected by electromagnetic waves generated by sun spots and the amount of carbon dioxide in the air... 

Heck, I don't know what I did... but I now know what NOT to do... and it has delayed the surveys getting out to you - until everyone in the United States gets back from the 4th of July / Independence Day Holiday weekend on Tuesday. 

You are probably away or busy anyway right now and won't even read this until Tuesday. Even so, I apologize. 

We will get the surveys out to you - and they will be awesome - and I hope it is Tuesday - I'm done promising - but BackerKit says we are almost ready to go. Just a few small things need done :) 

Have a wonderful Independence Day Weekend!

Survey Update... Sorry for the Delay!
about 4 years ago – Thu, Jun 30, 2016 at 05:15:00 PM

My Apologies - Survey Will Be Sent Tomorrow FRIDAY! 

Here's the rest of the story...

Getting the Survey and Add-Ons Right is VERY Important to Ensuring that You Get the Rewards You Pledged for.  And (as I mentioned before) the MSK-1 Knife Project is quite complicated (this is an understatement for sure - ask the BackerKit team :) LOL.

So... I have had to make a Hard decision to delay the survey for one more day to make sure we get it right. 

49 Part Numbers, 19 Pledge Levels, 18 Possible Add-Ons, 4 MSK-1 Handle Color Choices and MORE... are Part of the Survey Process - ALL Behind the Scenes. 

But, We're Almost There!!! 

I am currently checking all the bundles and package part numbers while making final tweaks with the BackerKit Team.  So delivery of the Survey by the end of the day TOMORROW looks very promising. 

Thank you for your patience!


You're Gonna LOVE This... Coming Soon - Customize Pledge + Tons of Add-Ons...
about 4 years ago – Tue, Jun 28, 2016 at 09:20:59 PM

Nope. I didn't die! I've been about shut in though (since the campaign ended) working with the kind folks at BackerKit to set up the survey (and the BackerKit backend)... to ensure a SMOOTH fulfillment process and maximum flexibility for YOU to Customize Your Pledge to Suit Your Needs.  

"So When Is The Survey Coming?"

Glad you asked... Look for the Survey Link (via Email) either Tomorrow (Wednesday) or Thursday June 30th.  

You see, the MSK-1 Project has been very complex to setup in BackerKit (with over 40 parts and pieces that make up the MSK-1 Campaign Bundles), so we have spent extra time getting this right. 

THE cool thing is that (through the survey process) you will be able to customize your pledge (if you like) and you will have the ability to select from a TON of cool add-ons (if that floats your boat) - I even added some that you didn't know existed :) 

Enough for now.  Look for the MSK-1 Knife Survey Soon...

Thanks Y'all!
