For centuries woodworkers the world over have strived to make a product out of only wood that can be given as a gift to a man. Sure there are cigar boxes, but how many guys really smoke cigars these days ?

Years of concept development ( I thought about it a lot)
Countless prototypes produced ( ok, 2)

Extensive product research reveals the best way to use it.

Simply lever down with your other hand. (the one that’s holding the phone)

Soon to come, the keyring version !
Will have to wait until further product testing is completed. I suspect though that I could just drill a hole in the end.

The inspiration ?
The temperature yesterday went up to 20 degrees celsius, which compared to the -20 we had a couple of weeks ago, felt like summer ! Beer had to be consumed.

They make such a satisfying ‘pop’ when you open them with a lever.

What a fantastic design a cool invention , I hope you got a patent on it. How did you come up with such a amazing design. I’m sure this product will sell instantly if put the market and you will have more money the the owner of Facebook. Wow Wow wow :))

Very nice. Well thought out design. Great finish technique.
I’d be willing to serve as a US product tester.
