As most of you are aware, we had a major setback in October. We discovered that our entire first batch of product could not be sent out due to an error in the manufacturing process. We are still in a bit of a state of shock over what transpired, suffice to say that at one step in the process a mistake was made and our carefully designated manufacturing specifications were somehow ignored. We found the issue during our own quality control process, and it resulted in us having to make the decision to withhold product while requesting a new batch. The quality control measures that we created were put place to ensure that the products:

  • are safe
  • function as intended by the design
  • meet the level of aesthetic and tactical quality which we want our company to stand for.

It is with our sincerest apology, and a deep sense of disappointment, that we must inform everyone that we won’t be able to deliver in time for the Holidays. However, we’ve been working tirelessly with the manufacturer who is going to expedite a small batch so we can get your Quark tool(s) to you as quickly as possible.

Quark Tool


Amalgam PDX

Not long back in human history, the possessions that people kept were treated as prized possessions, artifacts that held history, value, and pride. We want to design products that reconnect with that ideology. Things that you carry and use on a daily basis should bring aesthetic value, improve your life in some way, and hold an intrisic value which goes beyond mere functionality. Our aim is to produce thoughtful, high quality, beautiful products for discerning, handy individuals. These days it seems all to common for companies to follow the architecture of the mass market, either creating products that are manufactured around cookie cutter processes which are just "good enough", or adding features that will never get used in an artificial claim of utility. We're looking to push the boundaries of manufacturing and design to create honest, ideal and holistic solutions.
