“Hello, hello! My name is Nabilini! I’m so happy to see you!”
That’s what I hear this little guy saying. He has so much energy in him, it’s hard to keep him from flying away. But since all he really wants is your company, he will be the little character who hangs out in your kitchen or bar, waiting for you to call him into use.
He is, after all, not only a mini sculpture, he’s a bottle opener.
And now for a quick lesson on how to pronounce his name: Say the words “knobbly knee.” Put the emphasis on the third syllable in ‘knobbly’ -- yes, there is a third syllable if you are Texan and pronounce it like ‘knob-ble-LEE’ -- and say ‘knee‘ very quickly after that. Practice a couple of times. "Na-bi-LI-ni..." Now you’ve got it.
