Designed by brothers Gregory and Michael Spaw’s Knoxville, Tennessee based Kumquat, Leverage is the carbon fiber credit card sized bottle opener. Leverage is a credit card sized bottle opener that takes advantage of the inherent strengths of carbon fiber, allowing for a super thin (.059″) and ultra light weight (.3oz) design you won’t have to think twice about carrying around. In other words… no more need to key-fob around.
Kumquat likes to think of it as a bit like the monolith in 2001, but a whole lot lighter, handier with a cold beer, and they vouch that it has been designed, tested, and manufactured on Earth in the good old US of A. Leverage is in lockstep with your cards. No matter how you choose to carry them be it clip, case, wallet, or purse.
Kumquat is a small but intense collaboration of brothers, Gregory and Michael Spaw. With backgrounds in Architecture and Industrial Design respectively the duo has experience within Academia, Computer Visualization, Design + Build, Video Game Design, Glass Blowing, and the Special Effects Industry. Their most recent concern aspires to develop clever designs utilizing digital processes and fabrication techniques with production ultimately being executed via American micro-manufacturing.
