Flick-knife Toothbrush

toothbrush that springs open like a flick-knife
  [vote for,

Flick-knife Toothbrush looks like a flick-knife but instead of a sharp blade springing out when the button on the main body of the handle is pressed, a toothbrush emerges ready for cleaning action.

Toothpaste is also squeezed unto the bristles from a compression reservoir in the handle and is timed to coincide with the exact moment the brush snaps into its fully extended position.

Deluxe version is made from polished gun metal and guaranteed to cause a fuss at airport security.

       A "Welsh comb" is just using your hand as a comb. Is a "Sicilian comb" just using a flickknife?

       [+] Switchblade combs have been around for decades (link). It’s high time to expand into a wider range of personal care accessories.

       I have a flick-knife comb, still in its original packaging.

       I see no reason why one should not use a comb for brushing one's teeths.

       Unless it only opens once you'll be flicking your mouth bacteria all over the place. Pretty gross.

       // Unless it only opens once you'll be flicking your mouth bacteria all over the place //   

       That's the problem the SwitchBrush (linked) is meant to solve. It has a built-in UV sterilizer. Because it's not just mouth bacteria that gets on your toothbrush.

       //Unless it only opens once you'll be flicking your mouth bacteria all over the place// I’m quite sure you’re missing an opportunity to expand that notion into a completely new idea for a type of drool/mucus trebuchet.
