    I put a Buck 759 on my key ring, but I've almost convinced myself that a Vox Snail suits me best. The blade on the Buck means I will have to leave it behind pretty much anytime I go to an airport.

    Homemade version of the first one posted. Made from tool steel and heat treated / hardened to around rockwell 58 . It is now around 31 years old, has spent all those years on either my primary key chain or a tool key chain that is usually with me, and shows basically no wear marks from its travels and opening more that a few bottles.

    The last time I used a bottle opener was last summer but I have several.

    SAK Rover
    SAK Super Tinker
    SAK Cadet
    SAK Tinker
    LM original multitool
    LM Micra
    Nite Ize Doohickey
    1968 Cubscout knife
    Generic pocket knife

    I guess I had more than I thought...

    How many bottle openers does everyone else own?

    I usually have one or two on me, not counting the Buck 759. One on my multitool or SAK and one on my Gerber Shard. I like the SAK cap lifters, but my LM Wave's combo tool pokes a hole in the cap (and then keeps me from being able to reuse the caps). The Shard doesn't poke holes, but it's thin and short so my arthritic, old fingers hurt after using it. If I listed out all the bottle openers that I own, it'd probably be north of 30 because of all the knives and tools I collect. The most unusual one I can think of is the cap lifter on my AR armorer's tool.

    This sounds hilarious. I have a titanium ring, it shouldn't take any damage from opening bottles

    That is very cool! Really, I dig it the most.

    I open bottles with my teeth. Years ago I figured out a spot where I could do it without any chance of slipping or hurting myself.

    It has two advantages. One is that I always have an opener.

    The second is that it makes everyone around me terribly uncomfortable which is always entertaining.

    LOL

    Did you heat it to bend it? If so you need to heat it again and quench it quickly to restore the hardness of the steel.

    I'm going to try to make one like it...

    I just use my bic lighter. I dislike the idea of carrying a edc item with just a single use. It just adds more bulk.

    Nearly everything I carry can open a bottle with little trouble, so no need for a specific device.

    It most likely will. Titanium unless it's a very fancy and proper heat treated alloy will be softer than steel. Would be a shame if you damaged your ring doing something as daft as opening a bottle.

    Thats funny, I was looking at this thread and thinking about bottle openers. 1) I don't drink beer (I know probably a crime somewhere) or anything that really comes in bottles for that matter. Yet I just took inventory of my EDC and I have three items that have dedicated bottle openers on it and several other things can can open bottles with little finagling. The times I actually have had to use my bottle openers for friends/family I do like my Schrade Keychain Pry Tool.
