    One of my favorite openers: the Wera bottle opener. The beer is also one of my favs! :)

    I use what's known as a bar blade. Flat piece of steel that looks a little bit like a large pocket wrench. Opens bottles the first time every time. One side has a traditional leverage opener, the other an open ring. If you never saw a seasoned bartender ring open a case of bottles in a few seconds, its amazing. Just YouTube or google it, its not as easy as they make it look. Its simple, strong and effective.

    Sometimes you'll take the cap and a hunk of glass off.

    I grew up in Passau, didn't know any Bavarians (or in fact any other habitual beer drinkers) actually used bottle openers ;). Good beer, by the way.

    @ Sriracha
    I too use a bar blade a LOT of the time. I still have the one I used to carry from college when I used to tend bar.

    Maybe not the most practical, but it at least has multiple uses.

    If you're confused, it works basically the same as this one:

    [​IMG]

    ...which also has more than one use, though its bottle opening abilities do wear out over time...usually faster than it runs out of fuel unless you rarely drink and smoke a LOT.

    Oh the hidden values of a college education.....

    Fwiw, I'm pretty sure my Microtech would work too....I just don't want to scratch the blade. So, I actually use the one on my Vic Rally's Phillips driver. Even if it dies, it's a lot cheaper to replace than a Microtech. You know....unless I actually have a machete on me. That one always gets a few laughs.

    Note: unless you actually know the technique, don't try the machete on your own. It's easy to slice a finger open if you don't know how to hold it. And, no, it doesn't have to be a machete. Any single-edge blade that's wide enough will work. And no, it's not the same technique as sabering a bottle of champagne.....which does work as long as you're careful and don't drink straight out of the bottle.
