IMPORTANT UPDATE

Over the past two months, the Create With Nabalis event has been full of amazing ideas and creativity. We really don't want to miss any opportunity to help talented and imaginative designers bring their ideas to life. That's why we expanded the number of prototypes from the initial three to the top five. In the end, the top three winners truly stood out to us, and each of their designs was exceptional, with its own unique features and representation. So, we've made the decision to increase the production quota: ALL THREE  WIINNERS will be put into full production!

This decision will bring some significant challenges in production, uncertainties in sales volume, and a lot of effort on our part. Despite being a small team, we're committed to doing our best to assist every creative individual in bringing their ideas to fruition. As we mentioned from the start, the CWN event is a platformโ€”a platform that aims to help everyone realize their creative ideas. We're determined to protect the hard work and enthusiasm of the creators and ensure that more supporters can get their hands on the balisongs they desire.

We truly appreciate your unwavering support, and will strive to make next year's competition even better! In the coming days, we'll be fully dedicated to the CWN prototypes and production processes, as well as the release of more new product lines this year. We'll keep you updated on the progress!

Once again, a big thank you for your participation and involvement.
