About

Forget everything you know about cleaning lobster!

D Vein is the only way:

Step One:

Take the lobster tail, or whole lobster if you prefer to keep the head attached to the tail, and flip it over belly up so you can insert the lobster intestinal remover tool.

Step Two:

Insert the barbed part of the lobster tail cleaning tool into the lobster’s anus, about half way. Rotate the lobster intestinal remover clockwise, for half a turn. Hold the tail firm and pull the tool straight out. Attached will be the intestinal tract, and your lobster is now ready to be cooked to your preference.

We've Got Your Favorite Color!

We created the best possible tool to clean your lobster, but we didn't want to stop there. What color do we manufacture? Red, Blue, Pink, Orange, Green, an even better blue? Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!

 

The Process:

A great idea is nothing without execution. Turns out execution is easier said than done. The process of creating the D Vein - Lobster Intestinal Remover Tool took over 700 hours. That's as if we worked for 1 month straight without sleeping, eating, or ...You get the idea.

Once The product design was finally perfected, it was time to find the perfect factory to bring it to life. Luckily, it didn't take long before every factory wanted to help us produce the perfect lobster deveiner.

The first prototype was complete. Now the fun part. Test, test, test. We made sure the Lobster Intestinal Remover Tool was tested and used every single day for a full lobster season (8 Months) by anyone and everyone we could find. That's 237 days! 239 if you count Lobster Mini Season.

We are extremely exited to say, after 8 months of vigorous testing, the Lobster Deveiner Tool worked as good as it did on the first day of testing. In fact, I (Scott Mobley) still use the original prototype to this day.

Now that we know the product is in fact perfect, it was time to create matching packaging.

Maine Lobster or Spiny (Rock) Lobster

 

The D Vein Lobster Tool works on both the Maine and Spiny Lobster species. This means you get to enjoy any type of lobster without any hassle.

Can I sell these?

Yes! Our Kickstarter reward prices are BETTER than our wholesale prices.

Retail Price: $14.95

We encourage you to jump on this opportunity to sell the D Vein Lobster Tool in your shop or online store. We will make sure your Lobster Deveiner Tools arrive in time for lobster season.

We are currently working on getting space in retail stores, but this is a very challenging task with our limited amount of capital. We simply cannot fulfill large purchase orders without you. Help us get the funding we need to make this product easily accessible for everyone.

We are proud to say that we will have a small quantity of product available in the following stores:

  • Divers Direct
  • World of Scuba
  • Dixie Diver

Ocean Friendly

We are committed to keeping our oceans safe and free of unnecessary clutter. One thing that was super important to us was ensuring that if you dropped a D Vein Lobster Tool in the ocean, it could be found easily.

Our product floats! You are sure to find your brightly colored Lobster Deveiner floating right where you dropped it. This saves you money, and more importantly, saves our oceans.

D Vein believes in supporting the local community and organizations. This year, the company will support "The 5 Gyres Institute," "Oceanic Preservation Society" and "Oceana.” We promise to always support the community and foundations that save and help keep the oceans clean for the next generations by donating 10% of its net profits. D Vein believes a little contribution can make a big difference. We ask that you support us, so that we can support these great causes.

D Vein will work hard to establish long-lasting relationships with our customers and value them more than just friends, but as family. We would like to welcome you to Team D Vein, and encourage you to dive in and catch some lobsters!

Testimonials

“Saves a lot of time, works really well. Greatest invention yet for lobster.”- LA Livin

“I waited until after the start of Lobster season to give this honest review. Let me just say, the days of dreading cleaning my caught lobsters are long gone. To anyone thinking, "I can just use the free antenna", just remember you could also use a butter knife to filet your fish, but you bought a filet knife. This is an extremely efficient luxury item...”-B Jax

Risks and challenges

We have carefully chosen our factories based on prior relationships, reliability & experience. We are very confident in our team, our suppliers and vendors ability to keep up with our schedule and deliver on time. Having said that, we cannot always control everything life throws at us and there are always uncertainties and risks for delay in any manufacturing process. Although very unlikely, things sometimes do take longer than expected. However, we are prepared for it and are engaging in precautionary steps to prevent any such event. Throughout the entirety of the project, we will be in contact with you. It is our commitment to frequently update you in vivid detail, every step of the way!
