May 2020. Israel.
A one of kind in the new tools category, giving adventurer, outdoor enthusiasts, first responders and special forces, the confidence and trust to face outdoor challenges.
The COMBAR™ was born out of our founders personal need as adventurers and serving for over 20 years in the Israeli Special Forces. They were looking for the one tool that could easily be carried and would give them the confidence to deal with whatever they would encounter. There were different types of tools on the market but none that met our founders’ standards.
They went through patents from the last 100 years to see if others had worked to solve the issues they had, and indeed were surprised to find many inventors who had talked about the need and even patented a few tools, but none had ever turned into real products.
In 2014, they decided to focus on developing the tool that they wanted - at an uncompromised level of design, materials, and functionality. They set up ACLIM8™, raised capital and recruited for the project a team of expert adventurers, engineers, metallurgists, industrial designers, graphic designers, and artists.
After three years of research, experimentation and ten generations of prototypes, ACLIM8™ created an entirely new category in pioneering. COMBAR™ was born as a high-quality adventurer tool. In April 2018, ACLIM8™ unveiled the COMBAR™ to the world. Consumers could pre-order the tool on Kickstarter. More people who shared our vision and values ordered hundreds of COMBAR’s and thousands of accessories in approximately $250K. All COMBAR’s were shipped in 2019, without a single return, making it a complete success.
The next two years were spent in the transition from product design to mass production. This included vendor selection, QC, assembly lines and user experience testing. Immediately, we began to get contacts from military units, law enforcement agencies, and Search and Rescue forces from around the world who are currently testing the COMBAR™ as an essential part of the kit for their teams.
The COMBAR™ is proudly made in Israel. True, it is high priced, because there is no way to create a high-quality, fully-functional, powerful tool otherwise. We know that like us, there are other adventurers in the world for whom elite gear is priceless.
The COMBAR™ was designed for outdoor adventures: off-road & overlanding, camping, fishing, hunting, as well as emergency preparedness and survival essentials. Versatile and rugged, COMBAR™ offers the following features:
