Archaeology Trowel Bottle Opener 'The Key'!
Dispatches from a small business in
Materials: wood, steel
WHAT IS THIS?
This bottle opener is based on a standard 5 inch (12.5cm) blade digging/ pointing trowel. It features a hardened, tempered carbon steel blade with a polished wooden handle.
BOTTLE OPENER AND/OR DIGGING TOOL?
While this is primarily a novelty item, something for the tool kit at the end of the day, it is possible to use the tool as a digging trowel so long as the bottle opener is on the opposite side of the blade to that which you use when digging.
Whether you want to use this item as a tool or just a bottle opener, your hand preference must be specified. Your digging hand is most important (as frankly the bottle opener can be used with the same hand by flipping the trowel).
You can also have a short message inscribed on the trowel, please select that option before checkout.
In the drop down selections you can make your choices clear:
- Your hand preference(s)
- Whether this is to be a usable digging trowel or only a bottle opener.
- Whether you want your trowel to have an engraved message.
- The message you wish to be engraved (If you want one) in the 'Note to Seller' section on checkout. Please bear in the mind the length of the message needs to reasonably fit on the back of a trowel!

Looks amazing! We bought this for a colleague's wedding and it was a big hit. The seller was just outstanding throughout the process. He helped me perfect the inscription and drew some lovely entwined rings on the other side. He kept me updated throughout production, sending pictures as he was working on it and giving me an accurate time estimate. Trying to find excuses to buy this for as many archaeologists as I can!
Absolutely brilliant, works a charm! I got one for myself and one as a wedding present for two fellow archaeologists, with their wedding date engraved on the back. Marc was a star and was really helpful in coming up with a lovely design. Prompt replies to questions, prompt shipping, good packaging, couldn't ask for more :)
This is not a marshalltown or a WHS but a nice gift for archaeologists. The seller has done everything to get me the item as fast as possible (it takes about 10 days to get it from England to Italy). The recipient appreciated.
Thanks so much for my bottle opener trowel, it works well and the engraving is beautiful.
