Opening Number

This mathematical bottle opener is sure to become an operational constant when you're seeking liquid inspiration. It's the brilliant creation of Brian Johnson, a designer and engineer who bridges the worlds of creativity and precision craftsmanship. The hefty steel form is calculated for optimum leverage, solving stubborn bottle tops with near-infinite ease. When not in use, it becomes a smart, sculptural accent or paperweight. For mathematicians, teachers and other brilliant minds, using anything else would simply be irrational. Made in the USA.

      Comments about PI BOTTLE OPENER:

      I purchased this a few months ago for a math professor friend who is retiring. Now that I am about to wrap it, I see that it has rust over much of the surface. It was boxed the whole time, so I can't imagine why it would look like this.

                The price and quality of workmanship do not match. I will be sending this back. The person I am giving this to is a manufacturing engineer. Their quality department would never have approved this quality of workmanship.

                  Perfect gift for our adult daughter dubbed with the nickname "Sweet Pie" by her dad when she was a toddler. The name shortened to "Pie" over the years. This gift has great sentimental value & a hint of humor.
