On Tuesday December 8th at 10 am the McAllen Chamber of Commerce announces the new KnifeGlider Launch Press Conference

McAllen, TX. The McAllen Chamber of Commerce announces the launch of the KnifeGlider. The launch press conference will take place Tuesday, December 8, at the McAllen Chamber of Commerce, beginning at 10 a.m.

Have you ever cut yourself in the kitchen? If not you’ve been lucky! Even professional butchers, some of the world’s most experienced knife handlers, use chain-mail gloves to protect their hands from injury that can range from painful and inconvenient to crippling. Home cooks probably don’t have access to professional butchers’ gloves, but now there’s The Knife Glider, an easy-to-use plastic shield that protects your hand and makes slicing and chopping fast, easy, and, most important, safe.

The Knife Glider from Brilliant Inventors LLC fits any size knife, from the smallest paring knife to a full-size butcher’s blade. The tough plastic is BPA-free and dishwasher safe. It’s completely transparent, so it’s easy to see what you’re doing, and convenient attachments make it the ideal holder for peeling vegetables or slicing hot meats.“It all started when my wife Jennifer, who is an experienced cook, had to go to the hospital for stitches after a kitchen accident,” says Inventor-Owner Samuel

Shipp. “After that experience, Jennifer and I developed a product that’s safe and easy to use with either hand, snaps together to keep attachments from getting lost, and folds to fit easily in the knife drawer. It feels very natural in your hand, and the best part has been the reaction from consumers. People take one look and see how much safer cutting can be, and they want one for themselves, for their husbands and wives, for their parents, and for their kids.”

That appeal is no surprise. The Knife Glider was created with extensive input from prospective users and funded through a campaign on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo. The Knife Glider has won three business plan competitions, an Elevator Pitch Competition, and Brilliant Inventors was named innovative company of the year by the Small Business Administration of South Texas for 2015.

The Knife Glider kit complete with attachments, costs just $19.99 and is available on the company’s website at www.knifeglider.com, Amazon, Ebay, and Facebook. The Knife Glider will also soon be sold on The Grommet, which features products created by inventors. Proudly MADE IN THE USA! Brilliant Inventors LLC is a product development company that creates its own consumer-oriented products for the home and helps creative individuals develop their products and take them to market. For more information, contact Michelle Rodriguez at (956) 682-2871.
