Hey everybody, Nick here!


I make video reviews of knives, flashlights, watches, tools, and gear.  I've been making them for about a year, and I figured I'd open up an account here for people who want to support what I'm doing, and take the sting off some of the baths I'm regularly taking in the name of review!

This is completely optional!  

If you want to support me and the channel, this is just one of the ways!  You can comment, subscribe, like, and be awesome.  That's great support.  You can also loan me gear, which helps keep the videos coming, and makes you a solid Gem in my book.  That's excellent.  And heck, you can just keep watching.  That's great too.  But if you find yourself with a few extra dollars and a patreon account, I sure won't argue with your support!

All content will remain free to everybody!

All of my videos will still be freely available to everybody.  That's not gonna change.  I'm not doing the "Patrons only" game, because information should be free.  So all the rewards are just bonuses.  Again, no pressure, but if you want to help, you can!

There are... certain benefits...

When you're a Patron, you're a gem, and there are certain benefits to Gem status.  In addition to tier-specific benefits...

  • Patrons will have access to my Patrons-only Feed, which includes Patron Previews of exciting, upcoming videos which may not air on the channel for weeks or months.
  • Patrons will also be eligible for Patrons-only gear sales and auctions, where I list any gear which I've finished reviewing that's for sale, often at considerable discounts.
  • Patrons will have access to the Patrons-only Chatroom (through Slack), where you can talk with other patrons as well as certain jackasses.
Also, there are physical rewards based on your "Total Lifetime Support".  Whether it takes one month, or ten months, as soon as your charged contributions reach the below levels, shoot me a message with your shipping address, and I'll send the reward. 

  • Total Lifetime Contribution of $10: A 'Nick Shabazz: Good, Great, Bad, Ugly' Sticker.  
  • Total Lifetime Contribution of $50: An autographed Z-Hunter, just like the one on my channel.  Except this one's signed, so it's worth even less!
For international patrons, you'll need to make sure that assisted, terrible knives are OK where you live, and that customs is letting knives into your country (Sorry, Canadians).  Also, because Patreon actually charges for subscriptions on the first of the month, all rewards will ship only once the cards has been charged.  

Finally, please note that Patreon does not make this process automatic, so please don't forget to message me once you're eligible if you'd like the rewards!  You can't win if you don't send it in.

Thanks so much!

You all make this not only possible, but awesome!

You'll see all my posts here, including posts about any gear I'm going to be selling or giving away after review.  This may be only occasionally, but you'll see it first!  

Also, your pledge will count towards the lifetime support bonuses listed in the main description.


You're spectacular!

You're a shining Gem!
$50 or more per month 3 patrons
Pledge more than $50, and you get everything above and if you ever want to talk gear (or life in general), we can set up a Skype voice chat, and if you'd like, you can get an on-the-air shoutout, your choice!

Also, after your first donation is charged, message me and I'll send you a signed Z-Hunter.  Unless you want to avoid contagion or it's illegal in your area.
You're a shining freakin' Gem!

At this level, you get everything above, and every four months, we can work together and you can choose an item for me to pick up and review.  This is provided the item's legal in my area, under $1000, and available new or used at the time of review.  Of course, even if you get to pick the item, the review's my own.  You'll also get right of first refusal if I decide to sell the item!  But this is your chance to make the Nick review a Z-Kleaver.
You're a shining freakin' Gem mounted in a solid gold case attached to a Unicorn somehow.

If you're willing to hand over $1000 a month to support the channel, and you, miraculously, exist, you'll get everything above, except you get to pick one item every month for me to pick up and review honestly (as discussed above), with a cost up to $2000.  And I'll send you a signed Gem based on your current collection.

It's time to order some cheap knives!

Once I hit this level of support, I'll run the Cheap Knife Championship, testing 10-16 knives under $20 US, and trying to find the absolute best truly inexpensive pocketknife out there.  And the resulting knives will be given away to Patrons!
