Launch Date Set for MT Knives Stake Holder Program

Recently I mentioned the launch of the MT Knives stakeholder positions that are coming soon. I have posted a video with a short description of the program and the Limited Edition knife you will be receiving as a stake holder.

Go check out the specific details on the MT Knives site and take a moment to watch the video there where I explain the program.

Well now Patrick at MT Knives has set the date for the first ever Limited Edition Knife Launch will be This Saturday August 24,2013 at 9 AM Central Time!!! Look for a PayPal button on the Limited Edition Stakeholder page to purchase your Knife. Don’t be late!

At 9 AM Central time the sale will go live, I expect all 100 positions to sell out in less than two hours time.  If you have not yet registered for updates about this new program you may want to.  Should anything about the launch change, anyone on Patrick’s pre reregistration list will be notified by email and a reminder will be sent out the night before the launch which is in just a few days time.

Again here is a video where I show you this awesome new knife and explain the program.

If you want a shot at one of these knives and a stake holder’s position and have not yet registered for it, do so on this page.

  1. I can’t register. There’s no register button.

  2. chrome was blocking the submit button on the form for some reason. I was able to submit in firefox.

      Patrick must be using the javascript version of that form from Aweber. I will let him know.

  3. nope. It was on my end. One of my extensions was blocking it. Just call me a noob. 😉

    I plan on being a partner/investor in MT knives. One recommendation I would make for Patrick is to request from partners (if they’re willing to divulge such information and participate at a more engaged level) is information on their own skill set or expertise. Do we have partners that are metallurgists, engineers, procurement experts or machinists, etc. that Patrick can reach out to for consultation and assistance if needed? For example, I’m guessing that Jack will be advising Patrick on the business side of things…is there a partner that has access to a Rockwell testing device to test the hardness of metal tempering if Patrick is testing different tempering and metal quenching processes……or perhaps a partner has access to a supply chain of materials that Patrick would like to use for his knives?

    Just an idea.

  5. will those that registered beforehand have their places held, or is it “you gotta be awake and click that button at 9am on the dot before 100 other people do” kinda thing?

    pretty confused how this is gonna roll now…

      Well we have been very clear. The email list just keeps you notified, the launch date is announced. On that date and time it is a free for all, show up and get a spot or if you snooze you lose. The email form just gets you on a list so you get notified of any changes, reminded, etc.

  6. GRAH! So excited! I’m gonna set every alarm I can get my hands on.

  7. I was wondering, what will be the typical prices of the 100 custom knife runs for the stakeholder program? What would the typical retail price be set at (range or ballpark) and what would the wholesale price typically be IF a stakeholder decided to sell their knife on a particular run? Just curious.

    I am in, just hope I don’t have any glitches since I am out of town and have no internet… have to go to the public library and they open at 9am! gonna probably be pushed down a few spots because of that.

    cheers,

  8. hmmm, what would have been cool for MT is if he had saved spots 96 through 100 and once the 95th spot was sold, start auctioning off the last 5 spots one at a time to the highest bidder

    aw man, the site isn’t working, “500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request”

  10. “500 Internal Server Error” from Firefox, Chrome and Safari…..

  11. NotoriousAPP

    Even when I can get the page to load it’s asking for a password. Huh?

  12. yup… what was up with the ”password” too? did anyone get emailed a password?

  13. Is there a password?? I have been refreshing since 9 and have not seen the paypal option come up

  14. I figured something was going wrong when I got the ‘only one hour left till the sit goes live!’ email came two hours early. I think we’re seeing some automation gone sideways. Hopefully Patrick is up and trying to fix this.

  15. Guys, the password thing was there the whole time. The page was set up in advance and then set to be password protected until it went live at 9am today.

  16. The launch was supposed to be 9am CDT or 10am EDT. Patrick sent out an email 2 hours before the launch saying it started in an hour. Very confusing. It is still crashing with an error 500 at 10am EDT. I think the server is overwhelmed.

  17. So… has anyone been able to buy?

  18. I think we crashed the site. Guess this is going to sell out quick once it gets up and running

    • I hope not. Patrick said the mailing list had 300 people on it. If the site couldn’t handle 300 people visiting all at once, that’s a weaksauce server.

    Negative. No purchases yet.

  20. NotoriousAPP

    This feels like when I was younger and trying to purchase tickets to a high demand concert on Ticketmaster.

  21. NotoriousAPP

    Uh oh, somewhere a server just melted: “Error establishing a database connection”

  22. Lol. Refresh, copy/paste, refresh, copy/paste, sip of coffee… repeat.
    This should be a huge success for him once it comes up.

  23. NotoriousAPP

    Check your email, he just sent a link.

  24. mike from nj

    check ur email, he sent a link

  25. the link he sent worked

  26. Thanks for the heads up on the email!

  27. LOL! even a PayPal lag. Jack guessed 2 hr sell out… I would guess an hour max!

  28. BOOM BABY! I’m in. And, yeah, apparently that’s a weaksauce server the man has got. Oh well, I’m thrilled I got in on this.

  29. Have a great weekend fellow stakeholders! Excited to see what number I got 😛

  30. NotoriousAPP

    I’m curious how the ordering will go. By PayPal item number? Wasn’t sure if he can see the exact time down to a second of the PayPal transaction.

  31. try 20min sellout… oh well

  32. I wonder how long it took from the time that link was shared. 😀

  33. NotoriousAPP

    Apparently it sold out in 6min.

  34. Welp, so much for hoping I’d get a single digit knife.

    • Considering the cluster that occurred & we apparently all invested within 6 min of each other, he should just randomly assign the stake position numbers. But, I also understand not wanting to change the pre-posted rules that were to govern the assignment.
