Stir It Up

Pop It Like It’s Hot 

It may look like an objet d’art, but this icosahedron is in fact a 3D-printed bottle opener—or if we’re being technical, it’s actually 60 bottle openers in one piece. It’s available in polished bronze steel or blackened and gold steel. Ico Bottle Opener, $170. FSObjects.com

Cut to the Chase

Designed by award-winning Boston barkeep Jackson Cannon with R. Murphy Knives, this bar knife features a unique square tip that’s ideal for working with citrus fruits.
