We\u2019ve been really digging Aussie retail site Specified Store lately. And by \u201cspecified\u201d they mean a type of product that embodies the best of tireless craft and visual esteem, often by way of painstaking minimalist elegance. Naturally that includes a lot of quality Japan-made\u00a0household\u00a0products that your friends will fawn over and then go buy for themselves. Take, for example, the Futagami Brass Bottle Opener, a set of hand-forged solid brass openers that will probably last longer than you, your children and your children\u2019s children. They look like something stolen from the nearest museum and probably do a damn good job popping\u00a0bottle caps as well.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Futagami Brass Bottle Opener set was designed by Masanori Oji and made using a sand-casted method that results in a brilliant golden colour and lightly grainy texture. The set will not only remain resistant to corrosion and other forms of degradation, but even change over time to organically form a glossy patina. Included in the set is a long, rectangular shaped block of brass and then some hefty circular pieces, one of which kind of looks like a giant earring that some badass ruler might have worn in a bygone era.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAs with so many products available through Specified Store, the Futagami Brass Bottle Opener set instantly transcends its role as a functional object to enhance the aesthetic of its environment. This is something you can leave out on display in your living room or kitchen and then watch as it elevates its surroundings, infusing the d\u00e9cor with a timeless, artisanal aura. As we said earlier, the Futagami Brass Bottle Opener is guaranteed to impress your friends and even make them a little jealous, which let\u2019s be honest is half the reason you bought it in the first place.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
