Titanium Utility Blade Knife - The SlideClick™
From: Magnus Macdonald, Magnusx.com
If you've been looking for the ultimate compact titanium utility blade knife, then you've just found it!
But, I must CONFESS to you:
This is my second titanium utility blade knife design. The first one I designed worked well (and sold hundreds). However, some people were not happy with a couple of parts of the design ...which was totally understandable.
There were two parts of the design they were not happy with (...and I'll get to those in just a minute).
The utility blade knife I'm about to reveal to you is the result of ripping apart the original design ...taking the parts that worked damn well on the that original design ...AND adding a few brand new features too boot!
Let's just get straight to it...
I call this new design the SlideClick™ and here's what it looks like:
Let me now walk you through why this NEW SlideClick™ knife really is the cat's pajamas!
The button on the SlideClick™ is what locks the blade in place - both in the open and closed positions.
You simple push down on the button with your thumb ...slide the blade ...and then release your thumb from the button. The blade is then locked in position.
The SlideClick™ accepts a standard utility blade - these are available the world over and easily purchased.
Truthfully, one of the pieces of feedback I received from the previous knife design was that the blade would rub against the frame of the knife and become blunt.
I will readily admit this happened on a number of knives (but not all of them). I will also admit, looking back, it was poor design on my part - I could have done better (hindsight is a great thing!).
And so I've done better with the SlideClick™. The blade fits inside the button ...and it's the button that slides in and out the knife body.
The edge of the utility blade does not rub anywhere on the body of the SlideClick™ ...it stays tucked-away inside the button.
The original utility blade knife I designed had two different button styles ...a minimalist one and a more aggressive-looking (and more 'grippy') one.
The more aggressive-looking button proved a lot more popular and so I have taken that design and tweaked it a little for the SlideClick™.
If you're left-handed, then we'll make a left-handed version of the SlideClick™ for you.
Just pledge for this project as you normally would ...and, once the project is over, you can select in the Backer Survey whether you want a left-handed or right-handed version.
Also, the left-handed version will be an exact mirror-image of the right-handed version - no other differences.
At the rear of the SlideClick™ I've designed a decent-sized 'loop' so you can attached it to your keys, a lanyard or even a carabiner.
The SlideClick™ is small enough to go unnoticed in your pocked or on your keys.
Truthfully, I have not seen another utility blade knife offer such a long blade extension as this ...a full 22.5mm (or 0.9") of cutting edge!
The dimensions and weight for the SlideClick™ are...
Length: 75mm (2.95")
Width: 25mm (1.0")
Thickness: 5mm (0.2")
Weight: 25g (0.9 oz)
The SlideClick™ will be entirely precision cnc-machined in-house from raw titanium plate.
From start to finish the entire knife is made right here in my workshop on this Japanese milling machine right here:
When will I receive my SlideClick™?
Shipping for the SlideClick™ will take place in July 2020.
Does the SlideClick™ come in a Left-Handed version?
