This bottle opener by Georg Jensen is $20 at Urban Outfitters. [via The Laughing Squider via Der Swisser Misser]
Cricket Cola is the best soda ever. Srsly.
That’s strange. I have an urge to rent some CNC time, slightly alter the shape, make a ton of these and sell them way cheaper. I wonder why?
is it because $20 to open a drink is just a *bit* much?
Reminds me of 16 Animali. Beautifully simplistic design, fantastically overpriced.
That’s part of it. Also because Urban Outfitters likes to steal designs from independent artists and use them with attribution.
I bought this exact opener as made by Royal Copenhagen eleven years ago. Georg Jensen, shame on you. This version had a socket for twist- offs.
That’s a half a bottle of good single-malt! Priorities people!
i don’t see how this is better than the bulldog bottle opener posted yesterday.

It would be great if it was credit card thin so it could fit in my wallet. Then I would consider paying $20 for it. Whats the point of having it sit in your house when you need it on you?
I got two, in SF, within the last 2 years, at a great store called ARCH. They were $3.50 each, and have the socket for twist-offs, too.
I love these!
This has the twist-off socket, it’s just wiuldly overpriced.
