What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

  A beautiful knife without a sharp blade is like having a lovely food without any taste..... What does knife consists of ? Grip handle & Blade, if the blade is not sharp the knife is useless. Knives are in use for centuries & there are certain regions or countries that were famous for their art of craftsmanship & some are still considered the Masters for making the best knives to this day.

The combination of the best Japanese damascus steel, German craftsmanship & the production in the German city of Solingen make this knife ultra sharp & long lasting.

About Nagasaki

The thing that makes this knife unique is that its a combination of Japanese VG10 damascus steel & hand-crafted in Germany, where each step of process to produce this knife goes through multiple quality control tests.

The blade is a Damascus blade made from Japanese VG10 steel hand-hammered & hand forged.

It has 67 cutting core layers as compared to normal VG10 steel having 32 cutting layers, this makes Nagasaki extra sharp with high cutting ability.

Why on Kickstarter ?

Bringing this project to life is my goal.I already pumped in all my energy into this project.This is not for business,it is just to provide high quality product by eliminating the retail profit. So people like me can get it at reasonable price.The retail price offered for the knife like this is between €135 - €185. At this stage i look forward to your help to raise € 8700.

 

Why €8700?

Nagasaki is ready to undergo production, final prototypes  have been successfully developed & tested.This € 8700 is the amount that will go directly towards sourcing the materials & expert labor needed to start the production. As this is the amount missing in my production budget. Backers please back me to bring this Ultra sharp Chef Knife, that will stay with you for years,into reality!

Risks and challenges

Risk and challenges

Biggest challenge that i see are the delays with a minute 10% chance as !!!!!

- This is a mature project, the crucial risks are already a past tense.
- Specifically,
- The R & D is done.
- The prototypes have been produced.

A creditable German manufacturer is in harness and ready to begin. All of the knives video & photos you see in this Kickstarter were produced by our German partner. However,unseen natural causes or factors which can delay may happen but in such case the delay would be only of couple of weeks rather than months as the Prototypes have be produced and tested. We know how important transparency is and we commit to always keeping you in the loop about the status of our campaign..
