Don't tell me you can't open beer bottles by just looking at them sharply :D

Just ordered my pair of kite cleats :thumb:

Hi, thanks for all comments !
In fact, I didn't just let it in salt water. I let water go, then it was full of salt taking air humidity for weeks, then water again and so on, as if it was hardly used with no wash in soft water. To be honest, some little point of rust could appear on the stainless steel spring but it'll stay functional for many years I believe. Of course better to rinse it for winter time...
^^, yes, it could open beer bottle as well as a lighter ;)
And I also know about paypal every day new rules, grrrr, tell me if you need more time.
Alamos, many thanks, posted today.

Better to have spot of rust on the spring (no effect) than on your blades... ;)

Hi,
Many thanks to all of you that offer me a try on my concept ! :)
Following messages of Alamos_kiter, my apologies for the draft of presentation that could be unclear about the fact that the ABS version has no blade.
If others made the mistake, send me a message, I'll try my best to give you a good replacement deal... Thanks, Sébastien

This confuse me. Is this is not a knife. If not bummer. I'll keep my order, but remember us early ones when you get your knife going.

Consider doing trying to do a kickstarter with the knife addon.

There are 3 versions: Aluminum, Carbon, ABS.

Aluminum has got a knife blade.
Carbon has got a knife blade.

ABS has no knife blade.

That's all right, thanks again Alamos,
In fact at the time I made the video, there was no ABS version. And then, some kiters said to me: What about the 2nd bar ? And what about me already having a line cutting tool in which I believe...? So I made the ABS version, same design but to small to be a reliable cutting tool...
And I also make the Ebay ads to quickly because website takes also more time to be finished than expected...
So, please just tell me on kitesurfvoilier@gmail.com, I'll arrange a good deal for you Tautologies and others ;)

Many thanks, mine were safely received - the carbon does look nice.

As, when & if you expand the product range, I would go for a larger knife only option
