For all the men out there who get nervous about wearing jewelry, Bruce Boone has created The Man Ring in the purest sense of the word.

This design injects testosterone into the world of rings by including another stereotypical touchstone of masculine culture: tools. The ring acts like a Swiss Army knife, and inside it are both straight and serrated blades, a comb, a saw and most importantly for a man: a bottle opener.

It's built from titanium and custom-made to fit whoever orders it off Etsy. The Man Ring is perfect for anyone who wants to look good and be handy at the same time. Have the boys over to show off your manly piece of jewelry, as they will surely be jealous!

Implications - There’s some straight-up stereotypes here, but the whole thing is handled in a very tongue in cheek way. While we know that the product is actually useful, there’s a jokey novelty to it at the same time. The best kinds of products combine function and whimsy.
