Kizer Megatherium Knife

Kizer Megatherium Knife

Cocktail Kingdom Anvil Ice Pick

Cocktail Kingdom Anvil Ice Pick

What’s the most overlooked cocktail ingredient? It’s ice. Ice, baby. The key to a perfectly chilled drink is a big chunk of ice so it doesn’t melt and dilute the good stuff. This heavy-duty Anvil Ice Pick is just what the mixologist ordered. The stainless-steel anvil end scores an ice block, while the sharp bit does the breaking and carving.

Mini Bomb Bottle Opener

Mini Bomb Bottle Opener

This keychain-sized titanium micro tool reminds us a bit of Bullet Bill from the Mario games. Though instead of blowing you up, this guy pops opens bottles, and can hold a hex bit in its mouth, so it doubles as a screwdriver. (Bits not included.)
