Modern Bottle Opener

Not available for purchase.

PRODUCT STORY
"Is it so much to ask for a bottle opener that's not paired with a corkscrew, or worse, connected to a keyring?" muttered the small-batch craft stout. "I know," scoffed the Trappist ale, "with all these handsome tumblers around, you'd think we'd be introduced to an opener with a little class."

At this bar, it's high time a more sophisticated bar tool made its big opening.

Dutch designers Emiel Vassen and Gert Jan Vogel offer the bottle cracking connoisseur a minimalist, geometric take on the standard bottle opener. This user-friendly, stainless steel wand turns popping the tops off your most special bottles into a spectacle.

This sleek design is more than a bottle opener, it's also a conversation starter. Could you see this little piece of modern art opening the door to a great discussion on design at your next gathering?

I'd rather have a frontal lobotomy than this bottle opener in front of me.

Pretty, but there are just sooooo many bottle openers out there. Would be good for someone who collects swizzle sticks, though!

I think it's clever and reasonably priced. But if it does end up being featured on the site, I think it needs a video.

Not for me. I'm opening a beer, I don't need something fancy to do it with. It takes all of .08 seconds to do.

Kinda cool. To those who need to know how to "work" it via video, etc. REALLY?!?! It's a bottle opener! How hard can it be?

I have a hard time believing it works well--it looks flimsy.
