the-durand

No man wants to be kept from his drink.  That’s why it’s frustrating at a packed bar when you can see what you want but the bartender can’t see you.  It’s also why it’s frustrating when you get a broken-up cork stuck in your bottle of wine.  That fermented grape juice sitting there taunting you while you devise a plan that will most likely result in pieces of cork floating in each subsequent glass you pour.  Well, skip those plans (“What if I drilled a hole in the bottle?”) and use The Durand.  The Durand is a two-part device made for removing broken, old and fragile corks from your wine bottles.  It’s straightforward enough to use and won’t leave you hunched over the sink straining your Pinot Noir all night.

Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
