Wood.

Nail

Magnet

Jude Raffils is a really cool guy (who spent his early years up the road) and designed and makes this bottle opener, along with a whole range other well-designed stylish products.

Started out at the Nelson Saturday market (as one does…) and you’ll find his line in high-end design and gift stores all over New Zealand.

It’s so simple.

A piece of native Rimu.

A magnet on the side (to stick it to your fridge)

A classic NZ nail, bent and with the head positioned to lift a bottle top

And another magnet to keep the cap from disappearing under a cupboard.
