The stag beetle. It’s name comes from the large and very distinctive mandibles located at the front of the body on the male of the species resembling stag antlers. They’re so strong that if we should pick one up, it can pinch us with them hard enough for us to bleed.
The purpose of these mandibles, as with antlers themselves, are for fighting. During an altercation over females, the stag beetle will use its mandibles to dislodge and throw it’s opponent with a great amount of force.
Now these unique looking creatures have been recreated as a hand crafted bottle opener. The large mandibles, so good for dislodging opponents with brute force, can now be used to dislodge your bottle lids with the same gusto.
