I received packaging samples and liked them so much that I decided to offer the knife set as an option without the two cutting boards and aluminum case as well.

If you've been considering a Field Knife Set, don't wait! Jump on it now so that we can get to a successful funding and secure production. I just added another pledge option as well. Take a look and spread the word: http://www.tiktaalik.com/kickstarter

Backed. Can the knives store on magnetic knife rack? Understand that most SS is not magnetic.

Sandvik steel is magnetic. You're right though some ss are not magnetic. Here is a good explanation.

That is a fantastic presentation, just missed out on the first offer...grrr. However, I've seen a lot of Indiegogo presentations and none compare to Tiktaalik's. Way to go!

Backed. Any chance you'd add a field knife set option with the Murray Carter knife instead of the base chef's knife?

Bennett - I was just going to send him a PM asking the same thing!! Or how you can back with the Carter knife, and add a paring knife - with the cutting board and alumn case?

Yeah, i was thinking if i had the Murray Carter chefs knife i wouldn't need the other chef's knife.

Nice Orwell reference Briggs. Long live the Proles.

Thanks for supporting!

Unfortunately I don't have any plans for an option that replaces just the Chef knife with the Carter version. I was hoping Carter would be up for making all 3 knives in order to have a complete a compete Carter set but he's only willing to do the chef knife for now. I'm not too keen on mixing the set. The closest option is the field knife set and Carter knife combo pledge. If you get that you can use the Carter knife as an every day home knife and the use the field knife set for travel. The Sandvik steel knives are better suited for outdoor abuse (left out in the rain, etc) and keeps the edge longer. The Carter knife with the white steel core is happier when used often and consistently.

Sounds great! I'll do my best to try to deliver earlier than the official delivery of December.

Ok, one full set with cutting boards pledged!! BUT I also wanted the special edition cutting knife!! It wouldn't let me do both at the same time...can I just go back and do it again? (This is my first Kickstarter supported effort.)

Thanks Michael!

You can upgrade your pledge to the Field Knife Set + Carter Knife combo pledge. It should be pretty easy to change the pledge. PM me if you need help and thanks for the support! I am starting to think this might happen!

Yes and exactly! Get your Christmas shopping done now! It's so close. If you've been considering pledging now would be the time to pitch in so that The Field Knife Set can get into production. For whatever reason there's been an increasing amount of cancellations towards the end of the campaign. Normal or not, this is worse than not pledging at all! There's nothing more disappointing than taking a few steps back when you're this close to the finish line. Consider pledging and tell everyone you know! Thanks for supporting!
