… to make all of the final tweaks necessary to ensure Nimble’s packaging not only looks the part but protects Nimble during transit so it arrives at your door in tip-top condition.
It was a fun if very intense morning but I’m happy to say we now know exactly what we have to submit to the manufacturers to get the perfect Nimble packaging.
A Potential Production Delay
We’ve hit a potential speedbump in production regarding Nimble’s ceramic blade in that the grind angle and tolerances (the bits that make the sharp cutting edge) aren’t quite up to scratch, leaving us with Nimble samples that look the part but don’t cut as well as we want.
We know what needs to change with the blade, that’s not the problem, the problem is the unexpectedly long lead time the manufacturer told us is required to make these changes.
Right now we’re exploring a few different options to avoid this delay, one being sourcing the blade from a different manufacturer we’ve worked with previously.
It may be that we figure things out and avoid any significant delays altogether which would be great. It may also be however that this potential delay turns out to be unavoidable. We will know in the next week or so.
In the interest of transparency I just wanted to keep you guys in the loop on this.
