    When a bottle opener isn't handy, the edge of a table or counter usually is...

    Interesting subject

    Here is one that fits the catagory or "handy", a ring.

    But my favorite bottle opener was wearing a ball cap and short shorts at Gruene Hall yesterday. She was using on of these

    She could open four or five beers in under two seconds by clasping the bottles to her chest with one arm and using a kind of reverse motion, she would remove the bottle caps by pulling up on the away-side and somehow avoid hitting herself in the face - which would have been a darn shame.

    So what you're really saying is something like this is your favorite opener ;)

    Not any more but there used to be turpentine or thinner bottles that used to come that way. At least that's what my Pops said when I made the beer opener allegation years ago.

    My favorite is the one on my keychain that came from my maternal grandmother that says Hotel Winchester on it. I've had it for years now.

    The seat buckle connector on my friend's 1964 Ford Galaxie was a perfect bottle opener

    Cheers,

    I always have one of these in my pocket, so a bottle opener, knife, pliers, wire cutters and screwdrivers are readily at hand.

    Picked this little bad boy up a few years ago and it's exactly what it says it is.

    The best opener is always the one you have, when you need it, of course. In my case, that's my belt buckle.

    The Leatherman website even shows it being used as a bottle opener. They know their customers. That would be an evolutionary step beyond my 15 year old Gerber. Why more guys don't carry these things is beyond me.

    When I worked as a carpenter, we used the straight claws of our Estwing Framing Hammers.

    Rolling E. that thing is both medeivally wicked looking and very cool!

    As a follow up to my use of the wedding ring (which I broke once due to opening beers) my wife just bought me a Tungsten Carbide wedding band that I am officially allowed to change out with my gold wedding band when there may be a high likelyhood of encountering non twist off beer bottles!
