The Story Behind Nuggy ALOX

The Story Behind Nuggy ALOX

Here at NugTools, we always knew the cannabis community needed a multi-tool. And that's why we made the original Nuggy; it has a tool for every smoking occasion.  

Luckily we were right, and the Nuggy has been a huge success.

The vast majority of feedback from our community of users has been incredible. People love the unique design and function of their Nuggys. Moreover, more than ninety percent of users who rate their Nuggy give it five stars. For many of us the Nuggy has become an every day carry.

Now, as NugTools grows as a company, we know that listening to customers is critical. Thankfully we received hundreds of recommendations for new product ideas.  With this data, we made some changes.

    Cha Cha Changes..

    Opening The Tools

    First, we explored the spring tension challenge; eventually reducing the manual effort required to pull out each individual tool.  Now it's very easy to pull out the tools.  And at the same time, they still lock securely in place during use - and when closed - in order to ensure a safe user experience.

    The Logo

    Second, we knew something had to be done about the logo rubbing off. Continuing to print the logo on the surface of the Nuggy was no longer an option.  The logo had to be built-in to the actual product.  As a result, the shell now includes the iconic NugTools "N" logo raised slightly above the surface.  This logo will last a lifetime.

    The Weight

    Next we made the inner stainless steel spacers thinner.  This makes the new models less bulky, and overall much lighter to hold in your hand. 

    The New Tools

    We also took a deep dive into some of the dab tool recommendations from our community. A Carb Cap was at the very top of the list, followed by a Scoop, Paddle, and Fork.

    To solve the Carb Cap challenge, we enhanced the shell to a heat resistant material called Aluminum Oxide (ALOX).  But we didn't stop there!  We also decided this ALOX surface needed some texture, so we added tiny raised bumps.  These raised bumps give the Nuggy ALOX shell an incredible feel in your hand,and they also allow for minimal air flow when the Nuggy is used as a Carb Cap.

    New Colors

    Lastly, we added Blue and Pink colors as new options.

    Without further adieu..
