Developed through the collaboration of DoubleStar Vice President Jesse Starnes and Edged Weapons Division Director and Designer Rob Cabrera, the Noogie is intended as a lightweight, ergonomic and comfortable design that provides extra leverage for any bottle cap.
The product is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and measures 0.5 inch thick, ensuring that it'll stand up to years of heavy use. Two models of the Noogie are available to consumers, one black and one gray, each with a durable hard-anodized mil-spec coating that prevents corrosion and adds to a lengthened service life.
One of the added benefits of the DoubleStar Noogie Assisted Bottle Opener is the ability of the user to keep the opener secured in the hand while having fingers free to perform other tasks without losing control. The overall length of the Noogie is 4.25 inches long, width measures 2.75 inches and the weight of this skeletonized aluminum product is only 3.6 ounces.
For those who never want to be without their trusty bottle opener, DoubleStar sells a specially made holster that ensures users can have their Noogie close at hand when a tightly sealed bottle appears. While the DoubleStar Noogie Assisted Bottle Opener is specifically designed for opening bottles and nothing else, the design is similar to so-called "knuckle dusters," so consumers should consult their local laws before purchasing.
The suggested retail price on the DoubleStar Noogie is $39.99.
