Everything This Land has on their site is just plain cool. Dedicated to telling artists stories, the array of products is a collection of classic pieces made with two hands. When I spent some time on the phone with founder Dan McCready, his passion for craftspeople and high quality was contagious. He kindly offered to send us one of the products that displays these things perfectly, and we gladly accepted. Created by renowned blacksmith Stephen Yusko, this Forged Steel Bottle Opener puts all other bottle openers to shame. After a year years of forging each bottle opener individually, he now has them cast in steel from an original forging of his. “This gaurentees that each opener has the precise angles needed to open a bottle perfectly every time. Once back from the foundry, I forge the handles, file, sand, bead-blast and finish each opener. After a final wax coating, they’re ready to be put to work…if you consider opening a bottle to be work!”
No doubt about it, this is a classic piece created by one of America’s finest blacksmiths. Get one here.
