Glowstone flashlight, Braza knife, KEYTO ketosis checker, and more – Notable crowdfunding campaigns

NEWS – This week we are bringing you information about five different crowdfunding campaigns that are currently running on Kickstarter and Indiegogo that will be of interest to EDC and Keto diet fans.

Glowstone Flashlight: The only flashlight you’ll ever need

What is it?

The Glowstone is a rectangular pocket-sized LED flashlight.

Why is it cool?

This flashlight is cool because it’s virtually indestructible. It survives drops and dunks in water while offering a max of 900 lumens, and 8 light modes. You can wear it, stick it to something, mount it, etc. It can shine for up to 32 hours in candle (7 lumens) mode and recharges using a wireless (Qi) charging pad.

Where can I find more info?

The Glowstone Flashlight campaign ends on 12/13/18 and they have already met their funding goal of $12,813. You can pre-order a Glowstone Flashlight starting at $28. After the Glowstone Flashlight campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in March 2019. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Adventur 3.0 Titanium Survival Credit Card Axe Multi Tool

What is it?

The Adventur is a credit card sized survival multi-tool.

Why is it cool?

Adventur is cool because it is 40+ tools in one small credit card sized package that can fit in your wallet and includes an Axe, Knife, Arrow Head, Wrenches, Bottle Opener, and Cord Cutter. It’s made of stainless steel but you can upgrade to Titanium if you’re willing to pay a little extra.

What to consider before pledging

You won’t receive your pledge reward until May of next year – assuming that it ships on time. That’s a long time to wait.

Where can I find more info?

The Adventur campaign ends on 12/28/18 and they have already met their funding goal of $5,000. You can pre-order an Adventur starting at $30. After the Adventur campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in May 2019. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Braza Bro Cleaver | Bad A** Pocket & Keychain EDC Mini Knife

blurb by Andy Jacobs

What is it?

An upgrade to the original, this small, compact EDC knife features a locking blade, a pocket clip, multiple material options and now, a “cleaver” style tip for even more functionality.

Why is it cool?

I’m a big fan of the original Braza Bro EDC Folding Knife, which we previously reviewed here. Bastion is back with another Kickstarter campaign for a similar small knife, this one with a “cleaver” style (technically a “Wharncliffe” style) type that gives it even more functionality than the original. The flat backside of the cleaver tip can act as a flat head screwdriver and can even be used to pop caps off bottles. In addition, the compact yet comfortable handle is now available in tool steel, stainless steel or titanium (each with corresponding price increases). If all of those upgrades weren’t enough, the pocket clip can now be mounted on either side to adapt to the user’s carry preferences. All in all, it looks like a great set of improvements to the original Braza Bro, which was already a great little knife.

Where can I find more info?

The Braza Bro Cleaver | Bad A** Pocket & Keychain EDC Mini Knife campaign ends on December 18, 2018. To date, over 900 backers have pledged over $54,000, already shredding (pun very much intended) the campaign goal of $5,000. Pledge packages start at $29 for the Braza Bro Cleaver Super Early Bird and increase from there based on the options selected. Visit the Braza Bro Cleaver | Bad A** Pocket & Keychain EDC Mini Knife campaign site for more info or to become a backer.

Grim Workshop Wearable Lock Pick and Escape System

What is it?

The Grim Workshop Wearable Lock Pick and Escape System is exactly what you would guess that it is. It’s a credit card sized (wearable in your wallet) set of lock pick tools.

Why is it cool?

This EDC lock pick set is cool because I’m a sucker for wallet / credit card sized tools. Even though I don’t think I’ll ever have an opportunity to use it, I still want one… Maybe it’s because I’ve always wanted to be a Ninja or a secret agent.

Where can I find more info?

The Grim Workshop Wearable Lock Pick and Escape System campaign ends on 12/5/18 and they have already met their funding goal of $2,500. You can pre-order the tool starting at $15. After the Grim Workshop Wearable Lock Pick and Escape System campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

KEYTO: The Key to Burning Fat Faster.

What is it?

KEYTO is a pen-sized tool for people on the keto diet that you breathe into so it can tell you if you’re in ketosis.

Why is it cool?

I think KEYTO is cool because it provides an easy way to find out if you’re in the fat burning metabolic state otherwise known as ketosis. It takes the ick (peeing on a strip) and ouch (finger sticks for blood checks) out of checking your fat burning state. It syncs with an app on your phone and provides suggestions and tips for staying in ketosis based on your measured levels.

Where can I find more info?

The KEYTO campaign just started today and they are already half-way to their funding goal of $50,000. You can pre-order the KEYTO starting at $99. After the KEYTO campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in January 2019. Visit their Indiegogo page for all the details.
