There are two guys behind the Bill Blade: Glen and Will.
Glen had two key components when it came to this invention: the idea and a boat.
Will had two things necessary for the creation of the product and a successful partnership: a machine shop, and Glen’s friendship and trust.
Glen visited Will’s shop in late March of 2015. In approximately one hour’s time, they had two old credit cards cut into a basic shape that would fit the bill of a cap or visor. They knew the material had to be lightweight, manageable, and could not interfere with the function of the hat. It was essential for the knife to be available when needed but not get in the way during the rest of the day…
…and the Bill Blade was born!
