Geek/Beer Culture – Kebo, the one-handed bottle opener

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For far too long we’ve been opening our beer bottles with two hands like suckers. All that effort, when one hand could handle the beer while the other texts, high-fives or grabs a boob (Warning: Don’t grab boobs without consent). Even though you may not know it, back in the day, a distinguished gentleman popped the top of a cold one without the use of both mitts. Thanks to the Kebo, you have the ability once again, and it doesn’t involve some crazy move with your teeth or eye socket. The stainless steel device lets you crack a beer with the flick of a finger and a wry “Did you catch that, ladies?” look on your face [via Cool Material]
Inspired by the Theodore Low bottle opener from the 1930s, this clean and modern interpretation is cast of stainless steel and polished to a mirror finish. The single piece of steal slips onto the bottle and works with your thumb going through the hold and a a squeeze to get the bottle top to pop off. Each Kebo comes in its own keepsake tin, just in case it gets cold in your utensil drawer over night. A free hand will cost you $24.95 at Rush3
