A bottle opener with bite.

As a graduate of the Monterey Academy of Oceanographic Science I've always been fascinated by sea life and a shark's jawbone seemed like the perfect shape for an upscale metal bottle opener. For this project I worked with industrial designer Chip Beal to run through a series of 3D prototypes until we got just the right size and shape, and then designed a bright, simple hang card that made the gold finish pop off the background. Keep an eye out for this the next time you're shopping at CB2.
