Discommon Damascus Bottle Opener

Apr 27, 2017

Most bottle openers are kitschy, too function-over-form, or forgettable at best. And we’re not really sure why things have gotten this way. After all, we use them about as much as any of the other devices in our kitchens. Is it too much to ask for one that looks as good as it functions? No, it’s not, according to the folks at Discommon Goods who offer up their Bottle Opener.

Believe it or not, the original inspiration behind the form of this device came from a handmade bar of soap found in a Costa Rican hotel. That soap inspired the makers at Discommon Goods to craft a bottle opener that both had an ergonomic shape to it and also looked superb. They built this beauty right here in California from a distinct body out of CNC milled aerospace-grade aluminum, for extra toughness and longevity, but the real highlight is in the opening mechanism itself – an attached chamfered-edge “coin” made from gorgeous Damascus steel that opens any bottle with ease. The end result is a kitchen accessory that functions perfectly and will have you keeping it out on your countertop rather than tossing it into a drawer. For $230, you’ll get a bottle opener you can be proud of.

Purchase: $230
