CFF Introduces Force Multiplier Giveaways For Their Expeditionary Production Facility Indiegogo Campaign

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

We recently mentioned the Combat Flip Flops Expeditionary Production Facility Indiegogo Campaign. Rather than hit up a bank to raise funds for this endeavor, CFF went the crowdfunding route. There are a couple of reasons they took this course of action. One is, believe it or not, because they “only need $500k”. It might sound like a lot of money but banks generally look at this amount as sitting in this deadzone below $1 Million that they won’t loan to small businesses. Often, they’ll tell you to hit up a relative. Additionally, once you read about the project, you realize that it is perfect for crowdfunding. It’s meant to help a fragile economy and that fits in that philanthropic mindset that created crowdfunding in the first place. I know many of you harbor a resentment toward Afghanistan and her people. But it’s never going to get better if some stability isn’t introduced into the mix. One way to do that is economically. That’s where this project comes in.

As for the amount of $500,000? There are folks who consider this a lot of money, and it is. And many are concerned that the amount is padded imagining some kind of wild lifestyle going on at CFF. I know these guys, despite this world traveler aura that they project, the reality is less playboy and more surf bum. If you’ve got any questions about the budget, by all means please go visit the page on Indiegogo. There is a great graphic that breaks it all down.

SOG Micron

If altruism isn’t doing it for you, CFF is introducing Force Multiplier Giveaways for their fundraising campaign and SOG Knives is their first partner. They’re donating 100 Micron knives to the campaign. Starting NOW, the next 100 donors of any value get a SOG Micron added as a perk once the project is successfully funded. How about that?

Head on over and help them out.

New Knives from SOG

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

SOG Specialty Knives and Tools has introduced several new knives but here are my two favorites from a utilitarian standpoint.

Swedge II
In conjunction with Brent Beshara, a Canadian special ops military instructor, martial artist, and custom knife maker, SOG has created the Swedge, featuring a new blade geometry that makes the tips of knives stronger and less prone to breaking. There are three different shapes in the Swedge series. Shown is the Swedge II. All knives within the Swedge line, which are available in 8.3”, 9.2” and 10.1” lengths, feature a full tang, G10 handles and a Kydex sheath offering a variety of mounting options.

SOGfari Machete
The first ever SOG machete has paid careful attention to the weight and comfortable handles for extended use. They have added a saw to the back of the blade and a spiked tang from the back of the handle for pounding and scraping as well as holes in the handle for lanyards. Available in 13” and 18” lengths. The price point is so good on this one that I plan on picking one up just to replace my old GI machete.
