WHAT IS THE STACHE SHIELD?
The Stache shield is a multifunctional Moustache protector for the modern man inspired by the great (and sadly forgotten) inventions from the 19th century.
With the Stache Shield you can eat and drink whatever you want wherever you want without worrying about your moustache looking perfect afterwards.
The Stache Shield is the world's first multifunctional Moustache protector.
How to use your Shield
Drinking: Attach the Shield on a cup, glass or mug to protect your stache (bendable edges makes it fit almost all sizes!). Enjoy your drink. Admire your stache.
Eating: Strap it around your head to protect your stache. Enjoy your food. Admire your stache.
On-the-go: Wear it as a stylish necklace or tuck it in safely in the Shield pouch. Always be prepared to protect yourself.
The Stache Shield is carefully handcrafted in the deep forests of Göteborg, Sweden.
The Shield is made from 0,8 millimetre thick high quality Stainless Steel (probably the same steel that the Swedish Vikings used for its swords) accompanied by a genuine leather strap and a Shield pouch made from the finest linnen.
WHO WE ARE & WHERE WE'RE AT
We're Adam (L), Eric (M) and Oskar (R), three Swedish friends originally from Malmö, Göteborg and Stockholm. Besides experimenting with our facial hair we're passionate about developing and designing new things. We're firm believers in doing the things we're passionate about, therefor we've been doing just that. If interested in knowing more about what we've been up to before, feel free to check out some of our prior projects at our playground: www.oddcompany.se
As you might have guessed by now, our current mission is to re-introduce the Moustache Protector to the modern man.
Over a year has passed since the day that started this journey. The day Adams grandpa Karto,87 showed us a fabulous little Moustache protector from the 19th century that he found on a flea market back in the 1950s.
"Without this little piece I probably would have shaved a long time ago" he said (originally in Swedish).
Already the next day the first Shield prototype was made by Adams' handy big brother in his garage. It's been an exciting and rewarding journey to say the least.
AND NOW we're finally satisfied and ready to take the Shield to the next level!
WHERE YOU COME IN
In order for the dream of The Stache Shield to turn into reality we need YOUR help. We're seeking 25.000 Swedish kronor (around USD 3.000) for the final tooling and for the manufacturing of our first round of Stache Shields.
In return for your support you're free to choose any of our perks and be among the first in the world with your very own Stache Shield:
And Hey, just so you know, buying a Stache Shield is waaay cheaper than hiring a personal facial hair cleaner:
Price for a personal facial hair cleaner:
$150 /day ( $ 54 750/year)
Price for The Stache Shield:
$18 one time fee
POTENTIAL SAVINGS/ YEAR: $ 54 732
We're truly looking forward to the day when no bearded men feel anxious when eating or drinking.
Let The Stache Shield bless you:
SHARING IS CARING
There’s probably a lot of powerful people out there that want us to fail.
We’ve been harassed by numerous lobbyists from the Shaving industry who tried to shut us down like they did with the great 19th century Facial hair product inventors. Luckily, their threats haven’t scared us and their bribes doesn’t interest us.
Our marketing budget: $20
Average Shaving Company Marketing budget: $ 1 000 000 000 (?)
Please help us share our project!

Risks and challenges
We've been developing The Stache Shield for over a year and been using it for personal use for a long time (It certainly does its job!). We've partnered up with a great manufacturer in Göteborg,Sweden and feel confident to deliver in time. Our team has quite some experience from similar projects involving both the product development side and the manufacturing side. So just sit back, relax and keep on growing and you'll get shielded in no time! And of course- if anything is getting delayed we're keeping you updated!
PS. If you're REALLY lucky you might get your Shield in time for Christmas. But that's just if you're REALLY lucky.
However, if you're buying the Stache Shield as a gift for someone *lucky him*, you'll get a fine-looking digital 'Gift card' as a proof that you did indeed buy him a gift :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
