You may already have a bottle stopper and you surely already have a bottle opener, but chances are neither of them look quite this awesome. Bottlejak is sleek, raygun-esque combo tool with a CNC machined solid aluminum body for opening bottles and a CNC-machined solid stainless steel plug for closing them. It's not messing around.

Bottlejak's on Kickstarter for the moment, and at a starting price of $42 it's just slightly more expensive than whatever's hanging out in your junk drawer right now. But damned if it isn't prettier too. [Kickstarter via Cool Material]

I'm having trouble justifying the existence of this thing in my head, to be honest. As far as I know, bottle stoppers are used for things like wine. Bottle openers are used for things like beer. Beer doesn't really need a stopper. Wine doesn't really need an opener designed to pop crimped bottle caps off. So we're being offered a beer bottle opener that doubles as a wine stopper? Does that make any sense?

I guess it's kinda cool looking though.
