Léaf Opener: The minimalist tool
A minimalist opener crafted to open bottles and boxes with ease and style.

A minimal opener carefully crafted to open bottles and boxes with ease and style. Made in USA. Awesome stretch goals now added! TJ here from Léaf Inc. says “I’ve made it a decision to create a minimal piece that challenges the average multi-tool . A conversation piece with the intent to alter how we open boxes and bottles safely, stylishly and effortlessly. If you deeply believe in those three product elements as much as i do, then you deserve to own a Léaf product. I believe that, any product no matter the caliber, shape or size should be meticulously crafted without sacrificing function and beauty. By utilizing strong materials and clean finishes, the sole objective is to create a very useful and yet elegant tool that lasts a long time.”

Material and Process

Precision laser cut from solid sheets of stainless steel. Not die cast. This method produces a stronger, better quality and more consistent product. Waterjetting process is used for the fabrication of the full hard brass. This method is more expensive but produces a durable and quality product.

Finish

Each piece is carefully finished to ensure quality. The edges are dull and not sharp. As with anything if attached to keys, normal wear and scratches will occur. For the Stainless steel, any scratches to be quickly buffed out with any household scotch pad or small grit sandpaper. And for the full hard Brass, which has a higher chance of tarnish (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing). They are easy enough to keep shiny and golden by periodic cleaning with any metal polisher, copper or brass polisher.
