“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.

Inspired by the traditional Japanese Kiridashi-Kogotana utility knives, the Tidashi 2.0 mini knife is a simple and elegant cutting tool I can easily carry with me. Perfect for making small punctures and opening packages, it's the kind of tool I need on a daily basis.

The Tidashi 2.0 is made of grade 5 titanium, which is known for its corrosion resistance, so I don't have to sweat it if it gets wet. One of the cleverest features of the Tidashi mini knife is the silicon sheath, which holds the knife firmly in place when not in use, but still allows me to slide it out quickly when I need to. The creator has also made it available in ten unique colors and patterns to add style to functionality.

What I love most about the Tidashi is that it fits anywhere I need it to without taking up too much space. I could attach it to my keys without adding excessive bulk or stick it in my pencil holder easily. It would also fit right in to my emergency preparedness kit, where space is valuable. It's small and light enough that I can keep it with me so it is always on hand when I'll inevitably need it.
