    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.

    $20?

    That’s a half a bottle of good single-malt! Priorities people!

    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?

  4. selfish says:

    is it because $20 to open a drink is just a *bit* much?

    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!

    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.
