MSK-1: The Ultimate All-Purpose Knife that Could Save Your Life

Click here to view the original post.

Website - MSK-1 Cover

When I launched the MSK-1 (Multi-Scenario Knife) on Kickstarter – May 16th, 2016 – All I knew was that Jeff Freeman and I had poured everything we had (for TWO years) into designing, building and testing – what ended up being a very special, all-purpose, survival knife. Now it was time to release MSK-1 to the world… but I had no idea if anyone else would feel the same. So, if I am honest, I was a bit nervous as I clicked, “Post Campaign.”

Support Began Immediately

I posted the MSK-1 Campaign on Kickstarter at around 2:00 AM EST to make sure everything was working properly. To my surprise (as I was still working on the campaign content), people were starting to mysteriously find the MSK-1 and pledge. This was all before I had even told anyone it was live. That was the “ahh haa” moment when started to understand the power of crowd-funding platforms like Kickstarter.

Since the Kickstarter launch on May 16, the outpouring of support and encouragement for this project had been humbling, sweet and more than just a little overwhelming.

Ultimate Survival Tips Knife – Crushes Kickstarter Goal

Our original goal was to raise $15,000 – which was met in less than two days. With the help and support of many, MSK-1 has now raised over $100,000 being over 600% funded with 16 days to go in the Kickstarter Campaign (as I write this). That’s nuts! It’s been crazy ride for sure. See “live” stats for the MSK-1 Kickstarter campaign below…

Having exceeded our goal, MSK-1 (and the MSK-1 Mini Neck Knife) are going into production, so MSK-1 is available for Pre-Order now!

Off to Africa to Help Neema Help the Disabled Gain HOPE

Click here to view the original post.

  Neema Website 3Friends of Carin (my wife) and I have asked us to come to Tanzania to shoot a video to bring awareness to the plight of disabled and handicapped folks in Africa and how their micro-enterprise mission – Neema Crafts – is bringing hope to those who formerly had none.

Carin and I will be at Neema Crafts the entire month of August and have started raising funds to get to Africa, shoot and produce this video.

We are donating our time and talent to this project, so we only need about $5,000 (for both Carin and I), which will cover travel, lodging, food, and the full production of the video.

If you would like to partner with by helping with a financial gift, below is a link to make a donation.

Thank you in advance for your prayers and support!  ~David
