We once met some German guys (no, this isn’t the beginning of a limerick) who insisted that the only respectable way to open a bottle of beer was by slamming the neck of it down on a countertop or table, catching the lip of the cap on the edge in the process and thereby jimmying it free. They demonstrated this, and we have to admit that it was one of the more awe-inspiring things we’ve seen drunk guys successfully pull off. A few weeks later, we desperately tried to communicate this awe to a tearful hostess after we put a rather sizable dent in her counter. Unremarkably, she didn’t see the appeal. Ehem. Want to look like a total badass without endangering your friendships? Then you’d do well to back this Kickstarter project from long-time leatherworkers Corter. Backing $36 gets you one of Corter’s supercool bottle hooks– it’s a dual-purpose bottle opener and carabiner-style keyhook, effectively minimizing the amount of shit you have to carry around on your beltloop all the time. And did we mention it looks great? Well, it does. It looks a lot more great than you will, when you’re standing in the kitchen at a party with a chunk of countertop granite in your sorry hands. (It’s still a sore subject with us.) Get on it here.
