Sturdy cast iron hammer-shaped bottle opener

Designed to look like a real hammer, this bottle opener is hand-forged in the traditional Nambu Tekki cast iron method. First made in the mid 17th century in Japan, nambu tekki is a celebrated Japanese craft, still popular today. The black color of the bottle opener is derived from a lacquer glaze called urushi, which craftsmen use to prevent rusting on the iron pieces. This bottle opener resembles a real hammer, both in look and feel, making this piece a conversation starter that is both entertaining and functional.
