Named after the small South American mammal with big teeth, the Kinkajou is a bottle cutter with a new twist. The cutters currently available on the market are big and bulky and not very interesting to look at. My design was meant to be simple to operate, easy to store and more aesthetically pleasing; something you wouldn’t mind keeping in your kitchen.
The Kinkajou helps you recycle your used soda, beer and wine bottles.
The stencils and paints are used to permanently mark the bottles. Once the bottle is painted, place the bottle in the oven to bake the paint on. It then becomes dishwasher safe and you are free to design your bottles as you like.
The Kinkajou will come with an industrial grade 9.9 millimeter carbide cutting wheel. I don’t have an exact number of bottles but it should be in the hundreds. A replacement cutting wheel will also be available.
My success rate with my prototype was very good, the final product is better. That being said the more bottles you cut, the better you get at it, and you start to get a feel for it. The success rate then starts to climb easily into the 95 % range.
We have purposely had the cutting wheel removed from the hand tool because it is not needed with the kinkajou. We include this tool for the small slots that can be used to break off some of the edges that may be left over after the separation process.
The United States Postal Service (USPS) First Class International Shipping is the least expensive method of shipping, however, packages are NOT tracked once they leave the US. It can take up to 30 business days for packages to be delivered with this method.
