The prototyping process included several early designs with multiple materials; the belt cutter and window breaker being the greatest challenges. Ultimately, the belt cutter blade and fastener required specialized tooling and thread forming and an internal loop was added to the design for a more ergonomic cutting function. The carbide window breaker also went through several evolutions to ensure the sharp tip is both safe and effective. Finally, the rustic surface finish is achieved with multiple ceramic deburring processes.
