Planning a long day of D & D or a gaming marathon with friends? Surely there will be snacks aplenty, but when you get thirsty and need to open bottles, wouldn’t it just be better if you had a battle axe by your side? Even better, a Bottle Axe!
Inspired by Norse mythology and Medieval history, Bottle Axe is a stainless steel bottle opener that’s ready to battle beverages. Designed by Sam Falco, the Bottle Axe is available in two styles–the lumbjerack-ish Timber, and the very heroic doubled-edged Nordic style. This is no lightweight mini-weapon. Made of steel, it measures out at approximately 6.1 inches long and 1.6 inches wide, and it has a certain amount of heft to it when you pick it up. Since it’s 0.19 inches wide, there are no sharp edges and very little danger, except maybe to tiny trees.
The Bottle Axe is sold through Areaware, a New York City based producer of unusual yet functional everyday objects. The Bottle Axe cause is greater than just the emancipation of beverages, 2% of proceeds from the sale of Bottle Axes will be donated to Extra Life, a gaming- based charity to benefit children’s hospitals. It’s a cause that we here at Nerdist, along with Geek and Sundry, feel very passionate about. Follow along during our Extra Life 24-hour live stream on October 24 via twitch.tv/nerdistdotcom for a day full of fun gameplay.
So get your game on and open those libations with a tiny but mighty swing of a Bottle Axe! Bottle Axes are available online at areaware.com.
