About

Born from the minds of two gear freaks with quietly raging paranoia and a lust for creating ultra cool guy stuff, the Tactical Toothbrush is a lovechild of two core staples from two disparagingly different realms – WC and EDC. Yes, washroom meets every day carry in one cool tool!

Sharing safety as a function, both toothbrush and glass breaker are synonymous with protection. Bristles clean and protect you on the inside, and breakers assure your safety on the outside.

In a moment of pure inspiration, a decision was made to see what would happen when these two elements were jammed together. The result was that something truly unique was created – a world first – a fully functional toothbrush with a glass breaker in the handle. A Tactical Toothbrush.

Combining classic styling elements with functional design has produced a guy tool that is sure to provide that great feeling you get when using awesome EDC stuff, day-in, day-out!

Keeping good company with your EDC gear.

Don’t be fooled – TT is a high spec, functional tool. High grade charcoal bristles help to filter damage done to your pearly whites, razing debris to cleanse teeth to a mirror finish. The high tensile steel breaker is sturdily fastened at the base of the handle, always at-the-ready. A knife-like grip gives you the control to handle tender and sensitive situations, or to help those in need at a moment’s notice.

Our range of Tactical Toothbrushes salutes the major armed forces. Available in a pack of three with each armed force’s color-way – Tomcat Grey for Airborne Forces, Olive Drab for Ground Operations, and Deep Navy for Maritime Campaigns.

We want to be able to offer bristles in three different grades – hard, harder and hardest – soft, medium and hard respectively. 

Harder will be the first offering at 100% funding.

If and when funding increases, Hard and Hardest will be brought into the line up. Keep an eye out here as we will update the bristle specs as the campaign progresses.

THE FUTURE

Jake & Ant want to create a brand called Tactical Toiletries, with the Toothbrush being the first in a line of products based around real guys, real gadgets and real personal effects and hygiene.

Risks and challenges

As you can see, this project has been taken a lot further than a basic prototype before coming to Kickstarter, so many issues and potential pitfalls have been dealt with already. This equates to minimal risk for backers and future buyers as the product is 80% ready for production. The last 20% is critical, which involves a lot of fine tuning during the tooling stage. Jake has many years dealing with injection moulded parts, and with a strong and diligent work ethic, we see these as formalities to be routinely addressed.

The packaging has not yet been finalised. At this stage we are looking at a vac formed three part tray with a foil lid, kind of like a MRE pack. We reckon it would look pretty cool! We also reckon we're up for the challenge of working through this and creating a real experience when opening the pack, from the form to the graphics.

Antony has backed a fair few Kickstarter projects and appreciates the value of regular and concise backer updates, so you can assure that you'd be kept in the loop.

The expectation is that as soon as the funding goal is reached, tooling drawings will have been completed and tool creation will have commenced using personal funds, condensing the schedule to sure up delivery before Christmas!
