Add an unexpected elegance to your home wine service with the Jean Dubost Laguiole Stag Horn Corkscrew ($150). This French bar tool's common design — with a stainless steel blade and screw — is taken to the next level by the handle, which is made from naturally shed stag's horn. Yes, it's kinda pricey, but if you're buying stuff that has "stag" in the name, affordability probably isn't your primary requirement.
LOST might be counting down the weeks 'til its swan song, but you can relive all the wacky island wildlife adventures with this Polar Beer Pint Glass ($9/each). Sporting the logo of fictional Polar Beer Malt Liquor on the front, and a Dharma-like logo on the back, each side features such fun slogans as "From the arctic to the island" and "Down the hatch!" Like our recently returned Desmond, it's "a constant favorite." [Thanks, Dan]
If your fondest memories of high school in any way involve chemistry class, A.) we feel sorry for you and B.) we suggest you check out these Beer Steins Of Science ($160-$375) to hold whatever libation it is that gets you through your lonely days. Made from real research-grade dewar flasks and other scientific glassware, these handmade vessels are just the thing for geeking up an otherwise normal home bar, or for getting you tackled at your local pub by an overly-agressive bouncer who mistakes your stein for a bomb. [Thanks, Phil]
Designed by Xavier Pauchard in 1934, the Marais Stool ($300) doesn't just look vintage — it is vintage. Crafted from sheet steel and unapologetically straight forward, the Marais was long used as a bribe to bars and brasseries by breweries in exchange for carrying their beer, and carries on this tradition by holding court in the secret bar inside Oakley's massive, steampunk-inspired headquarters. Great for adding some industrial flair to your home bar, and also good for beating down intruders, unwanted guests, or obnoxious, drunken in-laws.
Become a roaming barkeep with the Big Screw Bottle Opener ($12). Machined from a solid bar of aluminum, this pocketable, keyring-friendly tool resembles a screw with a bottle opener on the end, but screw that piece off and it becomes a compact corkscrew. Small caveat: according to the description, you shouldn't take it to the airport, lest you get "screwed big by the TSA."
