    I got this from my grandfather, who died 40-some years ago. I can assure you that he opened more long-necks with it than any man who ever lived. :)

    I carry a bunch, per se and use most of them... As often as I can!
    Tungsten wedding ring
    S-biner-best one out of them all.
    Gerber Shard
    My knife
    Lighter
    Teeth, though I've stopped since I finally chipped my tooth. This served me well through high school and college!!!

    If I'm in the kitchen I'll use an actual opener or a spoon.

    I have an old pair of these falling apart at home. Have come in very handy on the beach many a time. Especially if all you have nearby is a cardboard box of beer and sand

    Wow, I thought I was the only one who was sick of seeing bottle openers on everything. I probably have more tools with bottle openers than the entire number of bottles that I've ever needed to open with such a tool in my lifetime.

    I do have to admit that the flip-flop bottle opener is a pretty cool idea as the presence of capped bottles often coincides with flip-flop related activities.

    Did you know that the bottle opener was invented two years after the crown cork (bottle cap)? Before the bottle opener it was said that you could tell how often someone drank by looking at the scars on their hands.

    While on the topic of bottle openers, here are mine [​IMG]

    i do not drink beer, so having bottle openers doesnt really help me, but i sure have a lot of them on my MTs and such.

    that said - i love finding vintage openers, like the Dr. Pepper one I found from the 50s etc

    I'll own and carry what I darned well want to and won't care a smidge what anyone else thinks or says about it. Anyone who thinks different is welcome to their opinion but won't like what happens if they try to force their opinion on me.


    I used to have a Starr opener (look 'em up) mounted on the inside door frame of a kitchen closet near the waste basket and the spot where I kept bottles for recycling.

    I've got several that were included as part of a tool, knife, or other EDC item.

    Plus I have an adversion to ripping up my hands, finger nails, and things I have paid for that are not meant to do other jobs. I find that most things that are pressed into jobs they are not designed for tend to fail sooner rather than llater and sometimes with rather spectacular results.

    I have an aluminum keychain opener that was quite the hit at a friends party last summer because not one of the almost 100 guests had an opener and most of the beer wasn't in twist off capped bottles.

    I happened to be prepared just like I am with most things.
