Letter from the Co-Founder
The first flask I was ever given was a humble 4oz which had my name engraved across the front, centered and crisp. Even at 4oz, I always tried to spread some around. I never forgot the people and journeys I shared with that flask, and I never forgot who gave it to me.
When designing our dual chambered flask I wanted to make sure to keep the heart and soul of what a flask is while enhancing all the things I loved about it. Dual chambers to enhance the sharability and versatility, viewing ports so you know how much is left to go around, wider spout for easier access; all while keeping the classic look and sleekness of a timeless hip flask.
I am confident we have turned what was a classic gift into the perfect gift. Join us on our journey, come together over our divide.

You're only limited by your imagination.
Uni-directional movement of the mouthpiece allows you to switch between your beverages with ease, while still retaining the natural unscrewing of the cap.
ACCELERATED FLOW RATE
Most flasks have a limited flow rate which can cause an inconsistent pour. The Dividere flask however, pours faster out of one side than a standard flask pours out of its entire mouthpiece.
All of our added features and our flask is only 0.3 cm thicker than a standard flask. We achieved this by bringing our mouthpiece's diameter to the very outer walls, unlike standard flasks. Our space is then optimized, increasing flow rate, all while keeping the design sleek.
Most flasks are burdened by a mouthpiece that is less than a cm in diameter making cleaning impossible. With the added complexity of our design, easy access is now achievable, making cleaning effortless and enjoyable.
The Dividere Flask is able to pack all the innovation of the spinning mechanism into an 8oz hip flask, without compromising the convenient size and classic look. Our flask is only 0.3 cm thicker, 0.4 cm wider, and 0.7 cm taller than a standard 8oz hip flask, yet is able to provide a barrage of added features.
The first flask in our line will be 8oz. This size was chosen because it allows you to carry a sizable amount (4oz in each chamber) yet still fits in your pocket. If our first stretch goal is reached we would have the resources to design and manufacture other sizes. We are thinking 6oz and 10oz!
- Premium Food Safe 300 series Stainless Steel
- Food safe EPDM/Silicone seals
- BPA free, alcohol safe, food safe, glass-like plastic
Stainless steel is the most common hip flask material. But not all stainless steel grades are the same. We use the highest quality, food safe stainless steel at increased thickness, ensuring the product always looks as good as the day you received it.
The patented neck mechanism uses sealing elements that may contain silicone and EPDM. Both materials are FDA approved and completely chemically inert.
A durable, high transparency, glass-like plastic was chosen for the window material for a variety of reasons. The windows are the face of the product and a scratch resistant material can hold the pristine finish for a longer period of time. Plastic also handles much higher impact forces at thinner thicknesses than other alternatives. This means instead of a thick window required with glass, which also distorts the view and adds to weight, we can have a thin crystal clear window that won't break. So go ahead, drop it, the Dividere Flask is prepared for adventure.
The moving parts involved with seamlessly switching chambers are all CNC machined. This allows for tight dimensional tolerances and a precision you can feel in the smoothness of the twist.
The flask windows are precision cut using modern laser cutting technology. This enables perfect and consistent cuts with virtually no heat damage to the elegant flask face.
This flask is meant for sharing, so make this gift even more intimate with custom engraving.
Due to popular demand custom engraving has been extended to all reward levels.
Instead of picking the Custom Engraving reward level just add $12 USD to your pledge for flask set-up and $1.25 USD per character to receive custom engraving for any flask at any reward level.
Contact us here on Kickstarter with the message you want engraved and we will be sure to engrave the flask for you. We will also confirm the price adjustment with you. Don't worry if you are confused just message us what you want engraved and we can tell you how much it costs!
For individuals trying add a splash of luxury to the sophisticated design, gold and rose gold plating options can be unlocked when the second stretch goal is reached.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to the many people who have been integral to the start of Dividere Stainless. It truly does take a village.

If you like the project and believe in the team, your support will go a long way in getting us to where we need to be. We have designed the product from day one speaking to industry experts to insure manufacturing is viable. We have received samples and quotes from manufactures domestically and abroad. We just need your support to be able to pay for startup manufacturing costs, molds, tooling and set up, initial material quantities, etc.
We really appreciate any support you give us and to show this pledging as early as possible will give you access to our many reward levels. You are able to secure our products for up to 50% off retail pricing and have your choice of some awesome extras!
We have left ourselves extra time to work out any unforeseeable issues.
Sharing is what we are all about! We would appreciate it if you could join us and share this project with anyone you think would enjoy it. We truly appreciate the effort!

Risks and challenges
We have been prototyping and designing since 2015. To get the project to where it is now we have already invested thousands of hours and dollars to prototype, design, test, and develop relationships with key partners. We fully plan on seeing this through and are 100% behind this project.
We have great relationships with many machinists, engineers, and engineering companies. We have in house engineering consulting and the design is being rigorously tested. We have partnered with domestic manufacturers who have sent us samples and quoted us on all aspects of our design. We plan on paying premium to have first production runs occur in Canada before considering overseas to tie up any loose ends in the design/manufacturing processes.
Our team is diverse and covers all aspects of business from design and engineering to marketing and sales.
There are always risks and challenges that may push back our timeline, and we have built the timeline with this in mind. We will fully communicate any changes that need to occur with regular updates throughout the campaign until fulfillment.
We stand here today with the main hurdles behind us, we simply need your support to bring this project to life.
Thank you for hearing us out and we look forward to sharing this experience with you.
