    What would you consider the qualifiers for "best"? Great at opening bottles? lightest weight? most comfortable in your hand? most comfortable in your pockets? best looking? Highest or lowest price? easy connect/disconnect to a key ring? Famous maker? variety of other tools onboard?

    There is a lot to consider and no one opener is going to be the best in all categories.


    Thanks for starting this thread, its probably going to end up costing me money. :broke::pop:

    One where the actual beer bottle opener component has multiple-utility beyond just opening a bottle. Primarily because an effective mass-produced minimal-component keychain tool should be able to have its valuable footprint be able to successfully perform multiple tasks with each subsetted tool. Thereby allowing the sizable demographic of tool users who don't open beer bottles ... to have useful utility from the dedicated bottle opener component.

    For example ... this is where Atwood nailed it. His bottle openers are also hex wrenches.

    Anything from Peter Atwood would fit the bill nicely.

    My Ti wedding band works great (once you get the technique down), as for cost....lets just say there's a HUGE secondary cost involved, lmao

    I'd love to say PEST, but Micro brews almost always take two pulls. Corona...just one??

    My wife got me a tungsten carbide ring for our anniversary. Knowing that the rinq would not be damaged by a bottle cap I tried opening a beer. I must have done something wrong because I didn't get the beer open my finger hurt for quite awhile afterword.

    Maybe I need one of these.

    :topic:

    Many pocket openers don't work well because they have one small hook or point that has to be lined up with the points on the bottle cap in order to pry the cap off. Openers that have a larger, flat surface to grip the cap work much more easily without having to line anything up.

    Look at the flat surface that this opener uses. You can see why it would be easier to use than a Shard, or Atwood or even my favorite, the Juice.

    I normally use my Atwood Cookie wrench to open beers.
    Although in the past I have used a book, rolled up magazine, and a syringe (without the needle) to open a beer.
    (the syringe was to win a bet, a friend said he could do it quicker than I could, i was halfway through my beer before he managed to open his)

    After you have opened and finished your beer just whistle for another. How great is that.

    Have not had to take a 2nd shot yet. It is very light. Not a fan of thin keychain bottle openers.

    Ti Brewdriver. The name alone carries a 5x cool multiplier.
