One-Handed Bottle Opener

A one-handed bottle opener merges showmanship and practicality

John D Smoak III

When it comes to opening a beer I always find myself struggling to decide between practicality and showmanship. While it's just too easy to pop the lid off that first seasonal brew with the end of a corkscrew, my desire to spice up the process has left far too many nicks and scratches on my countertop. This classy one-handed bottle opener provides the perfect middle ground. Allegedly inspired by a Theodore Low bottle opener from the 1930s, the mirror-polished stainless steel Kebo is total eye candy. It might take a few tries, but the small magnet in the arc of the opener will keep the cap from flying across the room until you perfect your grip.
