Boulder, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/07/2016 --Kopis Designs has mastered the multi-purpose, Every Day Carry (EDC) tool niche with the STK Project. The functional design company reached their crowdfunding goal for their feature-packed pocket tool, the Sliding Tool and Knife (STK), within hours of launching their campaign on Kickstarter. Now, there are a limited quantity of the first production run tools remaining. Backers still have a chance to get their own compact STK, along with the Rift, a travel-safe, titanium pocket pry tool companion, at the Kickstarter discount price.
The STK is unlike any handheld, multi-tool ever created before. Made from 6A L4V titanium and thoughtfully designed with modern rugged individualism in mind, it is capable of being used for the diverse demands of even the most rigorous lifestyles.
The STK comes with a 3/16" thick blade made from S35VN stainless steel, which includes a top blade for push cuts and a side blade for slicing. Users are always equipped for anything with the built-in bottle opener that doubles as a 1/4" bit driver, the flathead and pry edge feature, a wire-stripper notch, wingnut and O2 valve wrench.
All of these features are neatly designed within the tool's pocket-sized, titanium frame. The design of the sturdy titanium pocket clip also allows the STK to double as a money clip, making it ideal for everyday use. It can be easily strung on the user's key chain with a keyring hole included in the design. The Sliding Tool and Knife's intuitive layout makes it easy to use. Its unique, integrated opening and locking mechanism allows users to safely open, lock, and close the tool using only one hand.
The Rift can be used as a companion or stand-alone pocket pry bar and multi-tool. It is similar in layout and features to the STK, yet has a more minimalist design, which makes for even easier carry.
Kopis Designs collaborated with Vehement Knives and Tuff-Writer Manufacturing to make this project happen. Early backers can still access the special reduced pricing for both the STK and the Rift, as well as discounts for the Anodized or Apocalypse design styles of both tools, ideal for those who prefer a custom look – the metal washing process is done on a by-hand, individual order basis.
