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.

About

If you don't watch the entire video you really won't know what we have for you. Trust us, it's worth it.  We do apologize that we are unable to ship these strong magnets to the entire world presently. Our site, www.knifeedgebit.com is there for people who would like our bits without magnets. Please check it out.

Selling hundreds of thousands since our first Kickstarter as an excellent one-step stripped screw remover that works WITHOUT drilling, our unique advanced new patent pending "KnifeEdge®" bit for Phillips screws works with new screws or stripped screws. This makes a huge difference when you have a project with multiple screws, for example, removing and replacing the surface boards on existing decks or changing the movie and television sets on a very tight schedule in Hollywood. (Yes, they actually use them there.) No one wants to drill out all of those stripped screws and now you don't have to. Whether it be oily, rusty or dirty screws, or just plain stripped screws that before now had to be painstakingly removed and thrown away, KnifeEdge® can handle it simply and easily. These precision made bits require less effort than any other bit ever before and work the same reliable way, whether being used for putting a project together or taking it apart. This campaign is for the famous KnifeEdge® bits featured in last years' Top 100 2016: Best New Products by "THIS OLD HOUSE" of which only 14 were tools.

To quote them, "You’ll work faster, more safely and more efficiently with the 14 ingenious new tools and products shown here." We were very honored to be asked if we could be featured as one of them.

To that, we have added a removable magnetic capability to hold your screw in place on the bit. Why removable? Because in some applications magnets are not a good idea, such as when working with sensitive electronics. Our thought is you can quickly change from magnetic or not depending on the job.

The following video puts to rest any thoughts of using pre-drilled holes. It was my initial humble attempt to demonstrate just how good this tool works using even horrible damaged screws that no one would ever use. Just imagine how well it would work for you. See us at  www.knifeedgebit.com for more videos.

Risks and challenges

At the risk of being repetitive, this is the third campaign for the KnifeEdge® bit with the first two being extremely successful. The second campaign funded in less than 1 day! The bits are already manufactured and ready to ship. The custom Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets which we have already configured have to be ordered but should be here by the first quarter of 2018. We are stating an April shipping date but expect to ship much sooner.

During our first successful campaign, we were asked by our supporters to please come back adding the #3 size bits to the existing #1 and #2. After the second campaign featuring all three size bits in two configurations we were then asked for magnetic capability but we wanted to make it in such a way that the bits could be used with or without the magnetic feature so that if you were working in an area where magnets are not a good thing, around electronics, for example, they could easily be removed. We've done that now. The order for the custom-made magnets to fit our bits is ready to go as soon as the campaign is completed.

Our biggest challenge this time around is shipping magnetics which is why we are limited to only the USA and Canada for now.
Users who do not need the magnetics can get our bit 3 Packs at www.knifeedgebit.com

It is a lot more difficult than most people may realize to ship strong magnets. Like everything else, we will solve this too! Thank you for considering our bits.
