Nimble's Blade is Safe on Skin  

You don't have to worry about hurting yourself as, although Nimble's blade is sharp, it is too small to penetrate skin and cause injury. This is because skin is too tough and flexible so bends out of the way. Me and many others have personally tested this! This safety makes Nimble a great alternative to scissors and knives, even more so for children.*

It's safe!
It's safe!

*Children should still be supervised whilst using Nimble.

Nimble has been getting quite of lot of attention in the press... it has won and been a finalist in several national competitions too!

Word is spreading fast... Nimble has won multiple national awards and featured in the national press too!

We believe that the little everyday things in life should be easy. Really easy.

That's why we build products that solve the everyday problems and are quick and easy to use - giving you your time back to spend on other things (like climbing mountains, roasting chestnuts or whatever else takes your fancy).

Our latest pride and joy is called Nimble, the world's first safe to use one finger cutting tool. Nimble makes cutting open packets and parcels - and slicing sticky tape and wrapping paper - quicker and easier than ever!

Nimble is a small and versatile tool that can be worn on the fingertip like a thimble and uses a small but safe blade to cut thin paper and thin plastic items.

Nimble is great for crafting too

Nimble is One-Size-Fits-All

Nimble's special sleeve profile expands and contracts to fit all finger sizes so you don't have to worry which size to get.

It Has Been Thoroughly Tested by 150 Volunteers

Nimble was been tested thoroughly at home by 150 volunteers to make sure it's up to the job. The feedback we got from them blew us away!

If our campaign is successful then we will begin the manufacturing process right away. We already have the manufacturers selected and the design optimised so the first step would be to begin tooling of the moulds. See below for the full plan.

Risks and challenges

We have already run and delivered on a successful Kickstarter campaign with our first product Geco Hub and the feedback has been amazing! We can't wait to do the same with Nimble.

Every product idea comes with its own unique set of challenges so we're under no illusion that getting Nimble manufactured is going to be easy. We didn't let that stop us with Geco Hub though and we sure as anything won't let it stop us with Nimble either!
