About

Sophisticated, sleek and customizable. Wouldn't it be nice if everything could be described with these three words? Well, let's start by introducing Cracked - the best bottle opener you'll ever own.  

We’ve designed Cracked to be a new range of creative and bespoke bottle openers that aren’t gimmicky keychain weights. We don’t always have our keys on us when we need a bottle opener, so finally there’s one that fits in a wallet – something that’s on us majority of the time! At just over 2mm thick, Cracked bottle openers are the perfect addition to your wallet, simply keep it in one of your credit card slots, without it being a bulky nuisance. Our opening shape, totally unique to Cracked, is effective and easy to use, perfect to crack open a cold one with. Whilst adding a creative design element that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. 

The team at Cracked were fed up with the lack of personalization and creativity in the bottle opener world so we designed Cracked to come in a total of 20 different combinations. You can rock silver and marble, cork and titanium or white and copper, the list goes on and on. Check them out below for yourself to find your favourite pick.  

We now need your help as the Kickstarter community to bring our unique take on the bottle opener to life and to the market.  

Why Another Bottle Opener?   

So why another device to open a bottle? Well, the team at Cracked were sick and tired of the constant stream of gimmicky and tone deaf bottle openers flooding the market. So we decided to do something about it and create a bottle opener that not only looks beautiful but one that anyone could easily carry in their wallet or purse. A bottle opener that opens bottles with ease, but most of all we wanted to create something truly unique. With our proprietary opening shape and bespoke material choices we believe we have succeeded in creating a bottle opener that anyone would be proud to open their next cold one with. 

Design 

Each Cracked Bottle Opener measures in at 85mm x 55mm x 2mm, with the general outline inspired by the shape of a credit card in order to seamlessly fit in a wallet or purse card slot. As a backer you can design your own Cracked Bottle Opener by choosing between our 4 metals and 5 inlay combinations to receive something truly your own. See the full list below.

The idea for Cracked was born in June 2017 and the team got straight to work designing the perfect opening shape, after numerous CAD models, endless rolls of 3D printer filament and countless opened beers we finally had the perfect design for our Cracked Bottle Opener. Next we had to select the perfect metals to form the basic structure and strength of each Cracked Bottle Opener, whilst also providing the desired aesthetic properties.  After many samples and tests we finally settled on Titanium, Stainless Steel, Brass and Copper, as they provide the desired material and aesthetic properties. Our next step was to find and select the best inlay materials, after much deliberation the initial 5 chosen were as follows: Dark Marble, Light Marble, Dark Wood, Light Wood and Textured Black. Each of these inlays perfectly complements their metal counterparts to create a beautiful and unique product. Our final stage was to find a high quality manufacturer to provide bulk runs of our base structure and inlays to our exact measurements and quality standards. We are now at the stage were we are ready to go ahead with production but we need the help of the Kickstarter community to place a large enough order to make the project economically viable. 

Customizable 

Each Cracked Bottle Opener is personalised to suit your style, it’s something you can be proud of and showcase every time you use it. Cracked is unique in that it’s made by us, but designed by you – you get to pick your very own combination of metal and inlay. Each metal holds class and style and gives a high tech, top quality feel to your bottle opener. The inlay options were carefully designed and picked to perfectly compliment the metal you choose. Check out the range below.

Funding 

Why do we need funding? In order to bring our dream to life we need your help! We are at the final design stage with a working prototype that is ready for production, in order to make Cracked economically viable we need to purchase large quantities of the required materials, produce specialised machining tools and meet minimum production requirements as well as cover a wide range of logistical expenses.

Future Development

If all goes well and Cracked is received positivly by the community we would love to add more exotic base metals and decorative inlays. Subsequent stretch goals will be added when appropriate.

Risks and challenges

Whilst no human endeavour is free from risks and challenges, the team at Cracked has worked tirelessly to ensure a seamless process from successful campaign through to product delivery. We already have a production process with our factory which has been tested to ensure there are no mishaps with manufacturing. We work in very close collaboration with all our suppliers and manufactures to ensure everything runs as planned. Nevertheless, unexpected delays in production are always a possibility, which may push back our expected schedule.

The team at Cracked will keep all our backers in the loop at all times and be fully transparent about every step in the process in delivering our backer rewards.
