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:

Risks and challenges
I have all the conditions for making 10,000 units of this product.
I guarantee that every item will be send, because I do it on my own.
Having reached the required amount, I will assemble a team of enthusiastic professionals who will help me to make everything faster.
The market price of such a knife is not less than $125, but since my team will make a large number of knives and we will do everything on our own to the rivet, by our hands, the cost of our product is not high.
"Perhaps in the future, if you like my design, I will release some more new prototypes.I have a lot of ideas and technical solutions on a variety of topics in the field of knife-making."
Konstantin Shaporenko respectfully!
