Short of opening a bottle with your teeth, we can’t think of a more manly way to crack a cold one than with a demilitarized .50 caliber bullet casing…which is exactly what this is. Made in the good ole US of A out of military grade ammunition, this bottle opener is probably the only way most of us are ever going to handle a fist-sized .50 cal round, but we’re ok with that.

“The natural world, ingested as food becomes a component of human being. Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, it’s origin, it’s transport, has an impact on us beyond it’s taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world - of abundance, of famine - and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality.”
