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.

How to open and close OMNI
How to open and close OMNI

Push hole to release and slide into the open position by hand.  

 Our open face design ensures that the beauty of the Damascus steel is displayed at all times, even when OMNI is not in use.

We became tired of purchasing tools that continuously break because they are loaded with flimsy gadgets like plastic toothpicks and nail files…. OMNI does exactly what it says on the tin. It is an incredibly sharp and highly durable tool unlike any other.

How often have you heard of sentimental family items being passed down from generation to generation? This is because most products outside of the 21st century were built to last unlike most mass manufactured products today! It's time to make a change. We use all-metal components and abide by the highest precision manufacturing methods. Even our manufacturers are recognised for producing parts for Formula 1 racing cars. 

Risks and challenges

Firstly, we would be committed to excellent communication throughout the whole campaign, as we understand the importance of keeping our backers up to date on all developments (no matter how big or small).

Our focus has been to de-risk the campaign and overcome any potential concerns for our backers. These steps have involved; funding all the development costs, sourcing manufacturing partners with several rounds of samples and strategically planning the process post campaign.

The final way in which we’ve eliminated risk on this project is believing that we will deliver nothing less than the exceptional product we've promised! We have an unbelievable amount of belief in the concept and want to invite you on the journey of helping us to make OMNI a reality.

Thank you!
