Ticking along nicely.
Hey guys and girls,
We are now 4 days into the campaign and things are steaming along nicely! We are defiantly riding the kickstarter wave here (checking my phone every 5 minutes to make sure there is no unanswered questions or messages, and of course hoping to see that backer number tick over:)
I have been in touch with our manufacturer and have let them know we are full steam ahead and have advised them to get everything ready. As soon as the campaign finishes we can put down the payment for the tooling and the part down payment for the initial production run and get the ball rolling.
We are also in the middle of finalising the pouch, paracord, ferro rod, packaging and carabiners at the moment. Many samples have been sent to us and we are just testing them all out to make sure they will stand the test of time, and will hopefully be signing the final ones off very soon.
TSA QUESTION: CAN I TAKE MY MUNCHER ONTO A PLANE IN MY CARRY ON?
I have answered this question a number of times now and I think the short answer is yes, BUT I think it really depends a lot of the individual that checks your bag. If at all possible I would put it into your checked in luggage just to be on the safe side. It states on the TSA website that 'round bladed butter knives' are ok in carry-on. Please check it out for yourself here: https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/prohibited-items
Anyway, I'll be in touch again shortly with what my team and I are up too. Also you guys are our most important voice in the outside world, so please share the project with any friends or family you might think are intereseted in a Muncher.
