steel, iron, carbon, linseed oil

Are you deep in the midst of wedding planning? Still need something for your groomsmen? One of these fine, hand-forged bottle openers will not only fit the bill, but will serve your buddy well over the course of a lifetime. It'll crack open any beer he throws at it, and, for the most part, not even bend the cap in the process!


After hand-forging the bottle opener (see below) I use antique steel letter stamps to customize each piece. Letter by letter I will hammer the names of your groomsmen, pals or loved ones into the handles of each opener. Dates are stamped at the end of the handle in the following format



These bottle openers 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. Using individual hand-held stamps, I hammer whatever lettering will go into it. The last hot step is to punch the little tongue which forms the operative bit on 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.



My current turnaround time is 2-3 weeks.

If you need your bottle openers "ASAP," PLEASE contact me first. My schedule is typically very tight, and while I can occasionally accommodate a rush order, it would be better for all of us if you checked first.

For single openers or orders up to five openers you may place your order directly from this listing. For larger custom orders of six or more openers please use the "REQUEST CUSTOM ORDER" button located in the left hand column of our shop page. I'm happy to create a custom listing at a somewhat reduced rate if you'd like to order more than five at once.



I will use your Etsy address unless otherwise instructed

We ship USPS Priority Mail with tracking - you will receive an email from Etsy when your item ships

I CANNOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOST PACKAGES. IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THIS PLEASE ASK TO HAVE INSURANCE ADDED TO YOUR SHIPPING. Especially if you live in Chicago: out of a small handful of lost packages, Chicago seems like a black hole drawing them in. With insurance in place, a lost package doesn't cost anyone anything but a little time.

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. Please read and be aware of my shipping policies before ordering.
