A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
What is The BladeKeeper®?
The BladeKeeper® is a tool to keep razor blades sharp. We registered the trademark in 2013 for The BladeKeeper® as a manual razor blade sharpener. So, how do you manually sharpen the razor blade? You place one or two razors on top of The BladeKeeper®. That’s it. That’s the manual part. It keeps your blade sharp for you.
It is a precision made tool that collects natural energy, amplifies the energy, and then directs the energy to the metal in your razor blade which keeps it sharp.
The BladeKeeper® is an antenna/apparatus that is designed to collect, amplify and direct energy in the electromagnetic energy spectrum, using linear and non-linear harmonic frequencies to keep the blade sharp. You could say The BladeKeeper® works to vibrate the atoms on the edge of the steel blade back into a straight line and also evens out the peaks and valleys in the edge, created by wear on the blade from shaving.
How is it used?
1) Place The BladeKeeper® on any convenient flat surface that is away from electrical cords and plugins. The natural energy The BladeKeeper® collects is very subtle, and electrical cords and appliances interfere with the collection.
2) After shaving, rinse your razor and lay it on top of The BladeKeeper. That’s it! That’s all you do and The BladeKeeper® will keep your blade sharp for you.
The BladeKeeper® holds two razors, so twice the savings.
The BladeKeeper® works on all manual razors, razor cartridges and blades. Not recommended for electric plug-in type razors.
Are you sure? It sounds too good to be true?
9 out of 10 people in our test group rated The BladeKeeper® 5 Stars!
After more than 6 years of field testing, we pleased 93% of the test group.
The BladeKeeper® is now ready to be introduced to the public, but we need your help.
Tell me more …..
The concept of collecting natural energy had been studied by the inventor for over 4 decades. Our company was founded and work on the original prototyping of the antenna apparatus began in Jan. 2011. By early 2012 we had begun to share the antenna apparatus with our test group. The name, The BladeKeeper®, was trademarked while work continued to improve the antenna apparatus. By 2015 the final design of the antenna apparatus was complete. The BladeKeeper® is a precision made, close tolerance antenna apparatus, handmade in our studio, and serial numbered for Quality Assurance. A patent has been filed and is currently pending.
The BladeKeeper® is enclosed inside a sealed protective plastic case, which we have made by hand in very limited quantities. In order to bring The BladeKeeper® to market we need to have the protective cover cases manufactured.
The case will be made using injection molding in the U.S.A. The professional designs have been completed and a 3D printed prototype has been made. We are currently working with the company who will make the molds and handle production. We are ready to have the molds made and begin production on the cases, but we need your help to take this to the next step.
By helping us reach this goal, you’ll be rewarded with the first BladeKeepers® to be available to the public.
Shipping Your Reward
The BladeKeeper® will be safely packed for shipping.
The cost of shipping is Free for all our US supporters.
For our supporters outside the US, we discounted the shipping by the amount we are paying for shipping for our US supporters.
Any taxes or fees applied by countries outside the USA are the responsibility of the backer. We don't know the taxes or fees applied by your country and we are not authorized by any country outside the USA to collect those fees.
What's The Current Status ...
We have put 6 years into the development and testing of this product. We KNOW it works!
Once we bring the product to the marketplace, we will be offering a full one year, 100% money back guarantee if your razor blades don't last 4 time longer when using the product. We can offer this 100% guarantee, paying the original unit cost, plus the customer's postage both ways, because we know that almost everyone will get way more than 4 times longer use from their blades.
Our testing shows the results are much greater with some testers actually getting as much as a full year from one razor blade.

Companies Who Have Helped Us
We want to give a huge Thank You to these companies for their help and support!
Risks and challenges
We feel communication is critical to a successful operation. We will keep the Kickstarter community informed with updates on the complete process. Challenges can arise with any project, but we’ve tried to develop plans to meet as many unexpected bumps in the road as we can imagine.
Since The BladeKeeper® is a precision made, close tolerance antenna apparatus that is hand crafted in our studio, we have planned for increased production. We feel confident we will be able to meet the demand from the Kickstarter community in a timely manner.
Our combined backgrounds in Quality Assurance, manufacturing, customer service, personnel management, staff training and order fulfillment have equipped us with the tools to deal with any challenge that may arise.
You're interested in The BladeKeeper®. You want to stay informed about the project. You want to help, but you can't pledge for the full amount. We appreciate your support and we'll keep you informed with all the updates as we proceed forward with the project. You'll receive a BIG thank you for your help!
