I've been talking to the creator of the Goats tool since early 2020. Like you guys I was a little skeptical of this becoming a real product. However, I really hoped it would come to pass. A few months ago I got back in touch with him and was shocked to find out that he had taken major steps to making this thing a reality. Many of the company related logistical issues he has been working on addressing in preparation for this campaign. Like you guys I feel battered and abused by multitool companies taking advantage of our thirst for something new, all the while doing half ass'd iterations of what we really want. I don't know how this is going to turn out but I do have hope. I will be doing an interview with the creator some time in the middle of the month, I have a lot of questions as I am sure all of you do as well. I have major issues with many of the implements but I take that with a grain of salt. Only the frame really matters at this point, and my discussions with him indicate there will be major changes where the inserts are concerned.SOME SPOILED INFO SO FAR:Kckstarter base pricing : under $100MSRP will be in the $130-140 rangethe actual shape of the implements will be OPEN SOURCE! meaning the company will provide all information necessary for makers to create implements for the tool.As I find out more I can share I will. Cheers.
I've been following on here (and FB) since last year, maybe earlier Kickstarter price is about £72 but then I have to take into account shipping from the US and the mail system Also, a key decider for me will be how many tools, and of what type, can I choose for that price? With shipping from the US it could turn out VERY expensive to add a couple of blades etc. Still a fan though
First 50 are $59 ?!

FTFY. I don't get it.
fixed that for youFTFY is an abbreviation for “fixed that for you.” I had to look it up too lol.
Oh no, I know what FTFY means, but nothing got fixed.
Take a closer look...(Image removed from quote.)
This pleases me.
Oh, something got changed, for sure. What got fixed?
Funding GOAT, instead of Funding goal.
Let's make this absolutely clear — I have known from the very beginning what you changed. What did you fix? What was wrong with my originally intended comment that you felt it needed fixing?
(...)@Jothra, I think the 'fix' was an attempt at a light hearted pun, not to be taken too seriously nor meant to offend.
I really enjoy that apparently GOAT hit its goal on it's creator's birthday. That's quite a gift!
