Pi Solid Steel Bottle Opener

Share

Cosine! Secant! Tangent! Sine! Three Point One Four One Five Nine!


Whether or not you know it, everybody loves Pi. That irrational number is used for everything from simply computing the circumference of a circle to describing the decaying orbit of a superheated gas streamer from the surface of a red giant to the event horizon of a black hole. No doubt about it, Pi makes the world go ’round. Get it? Round? No? Moving on.

For the uninitiated, Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. More simply, it would take approximately 3.1415926 widths of a circle to go all the way around. It’s useful in just about every facet of mathematics, engineering, and science. What most folks may not realize, however, is how useful it is to beer.

Oh sure, you can measure the volume of a lauter tun (vessel used in beer brewing) by using Pi, but you can actually open a beer bottle using Pi. Not by staring at it and reciting 100 digits or so, sillypants. We’ve found an artisan that works in steel, and he’s cut out thick slabs of Pi with which to open bottles. Pry off the cap with the sixteenth greek letter, and imbibe.

Features

  • Solid steel bottle opener
  • Also makes a great paperweight, or shiny objet d’art
  • Dimensions: 4.5 inches x 5 inches x 0.5 inches
  • Weight: 1.2 pounds

Please note: These bottle openers are made from a solid piece of steel, and will slowly build up a light patina layer. You can clean and protect yours with a scrubbing agent like Bon Ami, Soft Scrub, or Barkeepers Friend. Afterwards, a light coating of Mineral Oil will protect the finish for months!
