I've been using this guy regularly for quite some time.
I tend to use an old football stud/cleat tightener.
What else does everybody use apart from a traditional bottle opener?
Usually just any sharp-edged piece of furniture and the palm of my hand. Hotel room A/C units work beautifully.
Besides a regular bottle opener? In Germany I used a lot of things, but the one that sticks out in my head was a water bottle.
Besides that, I've used counter tops and anything metal that could wedge off a cap.
another unopened beer bottle is my most common method, if a proper opener isn't nearby
My married friends.....
Edit: This pic was taken in Vegas on a bachelor party trip. We damn near broke his finger.
Well, we've officially talked about everything now.
I have a gold wedding ring. There is no way I am opening a bottle with my ring. A titanium one, on the other hand...
Tungsten carbide, my friend.
Thought about that one after I hit send. Very tough alloy!
my keys or my gerber multitool has a bottle opener.
I've got a tungsten in line for my ring (getting hitched Nov 3.
Have you had any issues with scratching or anything?
ETA: I should probably be more specific. Way too many jokes available for that one.
Have you had any issues with the beer cap scratching your ring at all? I still haven't gotten a definitive answer how strong they are and how scratch resistant.
Cave creek chili beer scratched my ring
A bottle opener.
It's a non-issue. I've had my ring for six years now and it's still looks as good as the day I bought it with a quick rub from a jewelry cloth.
I'm surprised there's anything left at all... I thought that stuff created a negative vortex in one's stomach that effectively caused all life everywhere to end.
Thanks. Good to know.
currently using this for most of my heavy lifting, picked it up on a work trip to Italy
Got a new one today:
Magnets on the back make it stick to the fridge or the cooler with authority.
That is fantastic. How sturdy does it feel? How well does it work?
Very sturdy and worked very cleanly. The metal is pretty thick, all of the sides have the controls or whatever and the back has two strong magnets. Well made all around.
Looks like no crease on the cap, where did you pick it up?
I have used it three times now and it have not left a crease once. I got it at a cards and comics store in Ogden, UT, but I have seen it for sale on the 'net.
My pride and joy.
Remarkably, I have the exact same opener and it was a wedding gift iirc! I have never thought about how many bottles it has opened over the last 22 years but it is a big number! I have also hooked the tail through my belt loop or on my pocket. Here is a recent WBAYDN thread pic:
I didn't realize my office squid paperweight was a great opener!
I found this and thought you all might be interested. Anybody got other weird beer related items?
That's Hotmetal1 -- see post 5 in this thread.
Any one have a good one that doesn't bend the caps that much
Gropener. Works like a charm and does not damage bottle caps at all. Worth the price.
anyone find a good one for removing wax from the waxed bottles as well as looks cool? right now i'm doing a combo of a kitchen knife and my regular bottle opener...
A waiter's corkscrew should get the job done.
Bottle opener from the original Air France Concorde is my favorite by far. Little piece of history.
Why? Because all of the other nifty light-weight duel cork screws go missing into the black abyss. This one has yet to go missing for more the two days.
I have one of that style that I bought at Wal-Mart, I didn't really care for it though.
My favorite has always been my Samuel Adams "Beer Lover's Choice" credit card opener because it fits in my wallet and I always have it with me and it was unique. Many people who witnessed me using it wanted one and asked me where I got it, but I had to inform them it was a freebie from Samuel Adams and not for sale. But today I found a similar opener with built in wrenches and it is much sturdier. I will retire my Samuel Adams opener as a collectable and carry this new one from now on. http://www.lowes.com/pd_501853-16878-63350_0__?productId=50086082
