    Why not use another bottle of beer?

    I do not recommend the Ozzy way if you value your eye sockets!!

    Once you've learned that first method he shows, and realize it works with just about anything you really don't need a bottle opener anymore. Just don't use someones bic with a cool shrink wrapped design on it. It will tear it up, and they will not be hapy with you, even if it is their beer you opened.

    I do the same thing. The only problem is, how do you open the last bottle? I guess the solution is to never get down to only one bottle in the first place. Always have backups!

    Two is one, one is none! (And thirsty!)

    Hmmm... I guess that means a six-pack is five... It's too early for higher mathematics.

    Most any of the Atwood will do. The G3 and G5 Prybabys rip them off with ease.

    The Bic method is awesome! Kenn Jordan's "Bic Buddies" make it where you can attach a Bic to your keys.

    I have used a belt buckle, my phone, another bottle (opened and unopened), a fork, a fixed blade, a spoon, stairs, a pen, a key, ...
    I have frinds who use their teeth, Iphone, paper, CD, ...
    Carrying a bottle opener with you is just a waste of space and weight you can use for another knife/flashlight in my opinion.;)

    That's one way to look at it. I prefer the "hey look at my cool bottle opener" way.

    This one was in the kitchen drawer of an old house my mother and I moved into when I was 15 (37 years ago!). Heavy, old brass. Works better than any other that I've tried...

    When I scrolled down and saw the dedicated wall mounted bottle opener I said to myself, "Pretty nice. I wonder if my wife would allow that?" As I scrolled the rest of the way down and saw the catch basin, my thought was, "She's not the boss of me! I live here too!"

    Can you tell I'm a little envious of your set up, Tonysti? Funny thing is, I have no more than an occasional use for it. Very cool though.

    How do you pocket carry that, BTW?:p

    Ha. Your post made me smile. Luckily she drinks the occasional beer so my wife uses it too.

    As for pocket carry, it's not too bad, it's just finding a place to mount it when I get to where I'm going is the problem. :)

    I carry this and it works great! It barely takes up any room. I was at a Memorial Day gathering and used it once. Later people kept coming up to me to open their beers, so they must have heard I had it on me from the first person's I opened.

    Hello All!
    Long time lurker, first time poster :) I love this site! I wanted to wait and contribute something before posting.
    So here it is! My bottle opener. It's a Wichard Shackle Key. I wrapped it in accessory cord for a more secure grip. I find it can get slippery if your beer has frost/condensation on it.
