Sorry, this item sold. Have hammeronsteel make something just for you, or try these other items:
Perfect for the beer-drinker in your life. No, I'm sure there are dozens of those. This tool is ideal for someone in need of a carefully-crafted tool guaranteed to last a lifetime. Craft beer, domestic beer, imported beer, homemade beer, this tool will get the job done. On top of that, I'll personalize the opener however you'd like, be it "Beer" "Cheers" "Chunky" or even your initials.
These churchkeys start as a single bar of steel. Using traditional hot-forging techniques, I slit and drift the end of the bar, shoulder it, forge the ring, and then cut the opener from the end of the bar. All of this while the bar is glowing a bright orange color (in the neighborhood of a couple thousand degrees.) After it's cut off the longer bar, I shape the handle, stamp whatever's going into it, and punch the little tongue which forms the operative bit to the tool. After a bit of cleanup and an oil finish, the bottle opener is ready to be gifted to your friends and loved ones.
Please note! My current turnaround time is currently at least a month.
Does this listing spark an interest in wrought iron beer tools that can not be fully realized here? If so, you can check out my other, burlier style of bottle opener here:
I take great pleasure in delivering high-quality goods that will last more than a lifetime. If any problems ever arise, I will be happy to address them to our mutual satisfaction.
