This design is an ode to drugstore-style goods that were so well made in the US decades ago, and applicable to all lifestyles and people. Metal work is rarely done in the US anymore and hard to find sources. We partnered with Hoffman Supply Co. who does metal casting in LA and uses amazing materials. We chose zinc (also used for carriage bolts in cars), which is strong yet lightweight. Next they were plated in brass and oxidized for texture.
The bottle opener is slim at the top to fit in-between keys nicely on a ring. It's short enough to use on your keys, without being cumbersome, and yes long enough to hold firmly and open bottles comfortably.
