    I came to post this here.I remember a while back on another thread someone posted this and I thought it was awesome, but never got around to ordering one/forgot who made it etc.

    I just ordered one of these. Not a key chain, but it looks awesome, keeps the cap intact, and is magnetic so it holds the cap after opening.

    Not to get off-topic, but those Brewbicle containers are pretty cool idea.

    I really like them as well. The only thing is with how much beer I have, it would be way to costly to house them all in the Brewbicles. I don't have as large of a cellar as some BAs, but with a little over 100 bottles, I would need probably 7 or 8 containers.

    I like this one I picked up at the brewery in May. On the back it says flavor savin' since 1996.

    This one isn't a keychain but just picked it up as a Christmas gift for my sidekick. Got her into collecting switchblades when I had my collection and give her one every year as a gift. Was surprized at the heft and quality of this one. A bargain at ten bucks from thinkgeek dot com.

    someone sent me a big sky moose drool keychain bottle opener as an extra. i still use it.

    of course there is a device called a hobo knife that decimates any keychain bottle opener.

    I use the exact same one. Found this on Kickstarter and bought it immediately. I opted to buy the copper keyring upgrade for it too

    I have several bottle openers, but this is the One that stays on the keychain. I've had it for years, you'd definitely have to try to harm it. It does kink the caps a bit if you don't do a double move.

    Klein opener
    Yes, it's $72. But this 3-D printed metal sculpture/bottle opener is fantastic. And so is its marketing copy.

    Is there a good one that doesn't damage the cap by chance, sorry if I overlooked it

    Haha. I think you sent a Harpoon one and the DFH shark. I got the Magic Hat one for free at a beer store in western Virginia (not West Virginia) somewhere. I do appreciate the additions to my collection, though. :)

    Bottle openers hurt caps! They are for display purposes only! What did a bottlecap ever do to you? How cruel!

    I have the same key only Oberon. That opener is fantastic. The flat screwdriver head is perfect for cutting into wax bottles as well. I don't think I will ever replace it

    I have the Corter bottlehook in black. Very sturdy- looks better with age.

    I've had 3 or 4 of that type of opener above and I always manage to catch them on something and pull apart the loop that connects it to the keyring!

    So now my keyring has this on it. Works well.

    Oh and this is amazingly handy for tailgates!!

    I have one like this, but I have a bunch of keys. It can oly open bottles if keys/rings aren't in the way. I like the idea of a carabiner opener though.

    Using the same technique, I'll sometimes use one bottle (cap still on) to open another.

    It was mentioned on the page back, I just ordered one of the Brewbicle magnetic openers. I don't quite get how it works, but it looks pretty neat.

    My Japanese roomate back in the college days brought me a few of these openers he said were big in Japan (back in 2005) - and I absolutely love them. Have not seen these anywhere but my own kitchen.

    (image found on google, i have a few Sapporo ones at home)

    I am also a big fan of this guy:
