In his early 20's, JC was making his way around Mexico. He noticed lime squeezers were being used everywhere. Such a simple tool helped enhance every dish and drink, from tacos and fresh fruit to the obvious margarita. Truly amazed, he needed one of his own. After searching around this town, he purchased a squeezer not knowing in a few years how important this would be. Later this lime squeezer was placed next to a leatherman multi-use tool. This was the "ah ha" moment and where this journey began. 

After intensive design research, numerous mock-ups and countless design tweaks, we believe we have created the ideal bar tools for the home bartender, as well as the traveling bartender.

Right now our focus is getting these tools to our customers, and we need your help. The Simple Tool is complete and is being packaged - estimated delivery: February 2015.  The Barbarian manufacturing has begun and will be available for shipping April 2015. Money raised from this campaign will go toward the order and shipment of the Barbarian multi-use juicer. 

Our team THANKS YOU very much for your time, we are so excited to launch our company and get these tools in your hands! We would be forever grateful for you to help share  Barbarian Bar Tools with your friends, family and social networks.

Risks and challenges

The majority of risks for this project has already been assumed during the design, prototyping and trial manufacturing phases.To solve problems that have arisen previously, we have meticulously redesigned both tools, conducted numerous tests on them and visited our manufacturer in person to assure that we are using quality facilities. With both tools, our goal is to bring high quality that will ensure customer satisfaction. The research and testing we have completed with both tools have minimized the occurrence of future issues.

We are conducting in-person quality assurance for the Barbarian in late January 2015. We have stuck to the vision of creating quality products that our customers will really enjoy. All we need to do now is get them in your hands!

We are optimistic the arrival will be as scheduled, but there is always the possibility of delay due to the shipping and import process.
