About this project
It's simplicity at its best. A knife that rolls easily through your food, giving you precision cutting and incredible power, all in one motion. Perfect dicing, slicing, chopping and mincing each and every time! From cutting carrots - to slicing herbs - to mincing garlic, bolo will quickly become your new favorite companion in the kitchen!
WHY A ROLLING KNIFE?
Great knives do two things very well: feel good in your hand and cut extremely well. bolo takes this one step further, by making a knife that sits naturally in your hand, and channels the power from your hand and wrist to the blade to make cutting easier than ever before!!
HOW IT WORKS
Traditional knives all have one common deficiency; the force you apply on the handle diminishes as it goes from the handle, through to the blade, and then to the cutting surface.
bolo changes that. By placing the force of the hand directly ABOVE the blade, you have full control for precision cutting, while relieving your hand and wrist from unnatural movements.
bolo cuts your food on the FIRST roll of the blade, each and every time!
Holding down on bolo's brake transforms it into a chopper! Great for chopping the tops off of carrots, lettuce, celery and more!
As easy as bolo is for cutting, bolo plus is even easier for tenderizing!
Making meat prep a breeze!
Giving bolo as a Christmas gift
We won’t have inventory until March 2016 but you can still give a bolo for Christmas! Once we reach our goal, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a beautiful gift certificate that you can print out and give to a lucky someone on your Christmas list. We’ll ship your bolo to you as soon as it arrives.
The Pastry Blade brings fun and ease to your baking! Gliding through your dough, bolo makes it as easy as pie!
HOW WE GOT HERE
Years of engineering and design work went in to creating the perfect balance of design and performance.
WHO WE ARE
Inventing great houseware products is our thing!
For more than 20 years, we have designed and manufactured private label programs for major retailers, direct to consumer companies and TV home shopping companies.
Today, we're stepping out from behind the curtain to sell direct to our consumers, and introduce our latest invention - bolo.
Chef Randall Cornfield and his team include a host of talented designers, engineers and business executives who have made the successful journey from design to product - time and time again.
WHERE WE ARE
With our team’s expertise in design, engineering, tooling and manufacturing, we have completed the knife design, prototype, and various levels of testing and refinement. Tooling is complete and with our patent in place, we are ready to go!

Risks and challenges
Time is usually the biggest risk in working with international manufacturing firms. Our project is no different.
We have our supply chain partners ready and able to help us manufacture bolo, but unforeseen bumps can happen along the way. The timeline we provided above is our most realistic estimate at the current moment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
