There's nothing quite like cracking a cold one above the clouds, but more often than not, our feet are planted firmly on the ground for happy hour. Bring a touch of the friendly skies to cocktail hour with this industrial bottle opener, crafted from the fuselage top from an authentic Pan Am Boeing 707. Hand polished to highlight the shimmering aluminum, this opener still features the iconic rivets, integral to the airplane's construction. Handmade in Berkeley, CA.

Disappointed when the MTA filled in the "Y" cutout of their classic subway tokens, Ward Wallau was inspired to find a fun way to incorporate the unaltered tokens into cufflinks. He wanted to prove to the MTA that the original tokens were worthy of celebrating and repurposing and, after 11 years of "no," Ward became the first licensee of the New York City MTA. Since that time, this "authenticity hound," has assembled and grew his team of artisans, production staff, and authenticators in Berkeley, California, where they re-imagine nostalgic artifacts as unique gifts that tell a story. Ward loves breathing new life into things that already exist, be it letterpress blocks, a wooden seat from Wrigley Field, or a bat broken at a Major League baseball game. "This business is ever-challenging, dynamic, and satisfying," he says. "It's not a good day if you don't learn something new!"

      Comments about UncommonGoods Pan Am Boeing 707 Bottle Opener:

      Awesome, awesome product. I purchased for a co-worker who is a huge aviation buff and it was a total home run. It is a high quality product, the box and packaging is top notch and included in the box is a card telling the story of how the materials were sourced ... my one constructive comment would be that it is perhaps too polished, all the character is buffed out and a super shiny surface is left. I'd be OK with some patina or imperfections but that is largely personal preference ... at the end of the day, it is a beautiful and unique gift.
