Minuteman Watches – Help Pick the Next Fixed Blade Knife Design

Minuteman Watches, in addition to their line of watches, will occasionally partner with a knife maker to offer an exclusive knife. Like their watches, 25% of the net proceeds from the sale of these knives goes to veteran’s charities. Their next knife project is going to be a small fixed blade that will be designed and created with the help of Justin Gingrich, former Army Ranger and head honcho at Gingrich Tactical Innovations.

They have whittled down the knife designs to just three and now its up to you to help decide which design to produce. You can visit the project page at Minuteman Watches to learn more about the project, projected pricing, and how to vote (its easy).

Here are the three versions being considered:

mm2 mm3 mm4

Regardless of the design chosen, the specs will be similar:

  • Blade length: 2.5″ hollow ground.
  • Handle length: 3″ (This may increase slightly but the idea is to get at least 3 fingers on the handle.
  • Blade Thickness: 1/8″ (Might be bumped up to 5/32″)
  • Blade width: 1″
  • Blade Steel: M390 (Might switch to S35VN the cost for both steels is about the same and performance is similar.)
  • Sheath: Kydex set up for neck carry, waist carry, and pocket carry.
  • Blade finish: Bead blasted. (This may change but we will not coat is as the cost will go up and we are already using a stainless steel.)

Again, visit the project page for information on how to vote.

Minuteman Watch Co. Updates a Classic

The Hamilton W10 field watch is a classic and Minuteman Watch Co. is about to breath some new life into the classic design.


From Minuteman Watch Co.:

Illinois-based watch brand Minuteman Watch Co. has launched a new series of watches inspired by patriotic American heroes both past and present. The new watch series has been named Independence.

As many of Minuteman’s current customer are former and or active duty military. The company decided to offer an updated version of a classic Hamilton W10 military watch circa 1970’s. The new series is available in a black canvas strap with black dial and natural stainless steel case finish or in a black canvas strap with black dial and military grade black PVD finish.

These rugged watches are powered by Swiss quality Ronda 515 quartz movements, and are intended for wear by both men and women. These fine watches will be proudly assembled in Mentor Ohio by highly skilled American watchmakers. Despite the fact the watches will be assembled in the USA using quality components the watches are being offered for prices as low as $250 via their crowd funding effort on Indiegogo.

For those of you that don’t know Minuteman Watch Co donates 25% of their net annual profit to charities that assist veterans and their families. For 2016 Minuteman is raising funds for Fisher House.

The Indiegogo campaign launched on Tuesday, March 21, 2016, and will have a duration of 40 days. The initial funding goal is just $9500.
