Curtis Odom Bottle Opener

Curtis Odom, maker of super high end, vintage styled hubs, also has a new line of drink accessories. A tribute to the 1976 Sedis opener, the Odom version is an “almost faithful copy”. A nice, solid chunk of stainless steel, this opener shows modern craft skill with a nod to the originals, and sells for $75.

Curtis’ work is extremely high end, made by a very skilled craftsman. So while the bottle opener seems fairly simple, see what happens when these skills are put to use for his equally important coffee consumption (and costs $325)…

Based on his Sweetheart hubs, these are made from machined aluminum and turned stainless steel. Simply made to hold the dripper for making pour-over coffee, it can show your vintage bicycle loving style and your good taste in brew.

Like any good bike company also offering coffee paraphernalia, Curtis offers a tamper. Turned from aluminum and stainless steel, it is “ergonomically perfect” and weighs almost a pound. It is actually the same piece of metal as the center body of his cassette hubs, the tamper is $90

mudrock-Don’t be a hater. Take a look at Curtis Odom FlickR page. The guy is a craftsman. The world definitely needs more Curtis Odoms.
If I didn’t already have a Chris King 58mm tamper. I would definitely by one of Curtis’s. His bike parts are not my thing being pretty much all MTB guy. But I sure get the aesthetic.

The choice of beer in the picture is way more offensive than the price of the bottle opener.

Signed in to say Shock Top sucks, BikeRumor commenters did not disappoint! Thanks @MudRock, Champs, Mike Bechanic, and BT!

Never tried Shock Top myself. I am a die hard stout and porter drinker.

Is the coffe stand tall enough to work with a standard size french press?

I’m just going to imagine that Shock Top was what they had left after drinking all the good beer first;-)

Shock Top was the un-drinkable leftovers from a friends party being used to test the opener.

I am absolutely insulted that a manufacturer would think I’m foolish enough with money to buy something as ridiculous and useless as this garbage!! Get back to the bicycles Bike Rumor

Shock Top is awful. Not a hater, just making a public service announcement.
That opener won’t fit on my keyring…
But, nicely made stuff!

@name required: a tamper tamps coffee. as in flattens it. it’s for espresso making. and that’s a damn fine looking tamper, at a much more reasonable price than another quality hub maker’s more colorful options… hmmmm
