The Kolmar Kutter is a masonry cutting device that cuts Brick, Brick Pavers and Engineered Stone in seconds. It uses no electricity, no fuels and is portable enough to carry with you even up on scaffolding. I was issued a Utility Patent (US 8,689,778 B1) on April 08, 2014 and am ready to start making and selling this tool nationally. 

The tool is so unique, new and revolutionary in what it is capable of doing that we were able to have it featured on HGTV / DIY Networks "I Want That" in February, 2012 AT NO COST TO US! There is a video of that commercial posted above. I was in Dallas when it aired and so I could not record it correctly but had to use my cell phone to record it. But the point of the commercial is still there.

There are three models to choose from. They are:

The BP+ (Brick Paver) This is our largest Kolmar Kutter and cuts Brick, Brick Pavers and large engineered stone. 

The MS+ (Manufactured Stone) This is our medium size Kolmar Kutter and its designed to cut manufactured stone which is the fake rock that you see on the facades of buildings and homes.

The TB+ (Thin Brick) This tool, our smallest Kolmar Kutter, is designed to cut thin brick and thin pavers that are no thicker than 7/8". At only 18 pounds, this tool out performs any electrical saw or powered masonry cutting tools.

We built 500 Kolmar Kutters, all three models, as prototypes. 300 of these tools were sold at cost to get them in hands of masons to use them and to give us feedback on what we could do to make the tool work better or where there may be design flaws. We had great input from these masons and we listened to what they had to say and made needed corrections based upon their recommendations. 200 of the other tools were used to test whether by trying to destroy them, working them till they broke, testing how many cuts each model can make or simply to find the best color to make them. These prototypes gave their all so that we can have the best and most novel tool ever to hit the stores in a very long time.

With the money that we hope to receive from Kickstarter, we will purchase material such as steel, hydraulics, welding supplies, powder coating supplies, shipping supplies as well as updating our website to accommodate online orders which we believe will be the driving force of the initial sales until we can get into retail and distributors. We also are going to invest funds into marketing to help get our brand out to the public and let them know we exist.

Risks and challenges

Due to the novelty of this tool and the interest it has shown, the quantities to produce could prove to be a challenge due to the amount of steel that we will need to fabricate. With the possibility of thousands of orders of this tool, we can find ourselves having to work 2 and maybe even 3 shifts to care for the needs of producing large quantities. We have already contacted several fabricating facilities to help with the need of producing our tools regardless of the amount of tools being ordered.

Upon receiving the Kickstarter funds, we will purchase all the materials we need to begin production. We project that it will take about 2 months before we see our tool on sale online and in stores. Once we start producing the tools and with orders to fill, we can then begin to see money being generated which will go back into the business to produce more tools.
