Are you having a hard time deciding which bottle opener to choose for your favorite beer-drinker? Do you want one that offers considerable heft, deeply-etched character, and a graceful shape? How about a custom-stamped groomsman gift?

If you said yes to any of these questions, or to any number that I didn't ask, this is the listing for you!

(please specify in the Note to Seller during the checkout process)

---> Beer Defense Tool:
Ordering a BDT will get you a bottle opener that twists along its handle, and has a very definite POINT on the end. Sometimes when you open a beer, you just don't want to have to share it with your friends. Sometimes, your friends are terribly insistent. In those situations, a BDT is just the tool you need.

---> Curled Railroad Spike:
These bottle openers have twisted handles, and a bit of a curl at the end of the spike (safety first!)

Forged from a reclaimed railroad spike, it'll open your beer with great ease and style! All of these spikes came into my life during walks along the train tracks. Over time, they pop out of their rightful place in the ties Then they just lie there, soaking up the sun and rain, developing a nice coating of rust. After I bring them back to my shop, I heat them and beat them. Following this rigorous treatment, the remaining rust is completely removed, and we're left with this amazing texture on the surface of the steel. The churchkeys are then lovingly finished with a linseed oil coating to prevent the development of new rust (much less charming than old rust)

My current turnaround time is about four weeks (4 weeks.) This is subject to change during our shop transition time (please read our shop announcement about the move)

These openers come with a two-generation guarantee: if they fail for any reason during your life, or the lives of your children, I'll do what I can to make it right. If it fails for your grandkids, I'm afraid they'll have to seek out assistance on their own.

PLEASE INCLUDE WITH ORDER: If you'd like them stamped with an initial, please let me know during the checkout process. If you'd like to specify between one for a lefty or righty, please include a note with your order.
