Carbon Tactics is a crowdfunding veteran at this point. They have already successfully funded 9 projects including a number of belts. Their latest project, their tenth, is a slick EDC utility knife called the Ti Slice.
The Ti Slice is a compact utility knife that is made from premium materials and with a smart, minimalist design. It has just three parts including the disposable utility blade. The body of the Ti Slice is machined from a single billet of titanium and the blade holder is machined from bronze. The blade holder simply slides inside the Ti housing and locks into place with either the blade exposed or completely contained. There isn’t a single screw or bearing in the design.
The titanium housing and Carbon Tactics’ in house production capabilities leads to variety of available machining and finishing options. The Ti Slice is available anodized in variety of colors and with a number of machined patterns. If they reach their $20K stretch goal, they will also offer multi-color anodizing.
The Ti Slice is barely longer and taller than the utility blade itself so pocket carry should be easy. It has a lanyard hole that can be used to attach it to a split ring for key chain carry or to further customize the Ti Slice with a lanyard.
