Mine is a paint can openerů. For some reason I am always in the garage and this is the only thing I have, how about yours?

Craftsman cap wrench. Opens just about anything like butter. The little dimple in the middle provides leverage in just the right spot, and the very sharp lip machined into it grabs on to even the toughest bottles. It's nice and long so you get plenty of leverage, and heavy!!

I like the cap wrench as well. Since I do keep bottled beer in my keezer, I recently added a standard opener mounted to that as well.

The silver opener on the trim was a gift from my wife back when we were dating. Cast "Fender" bottle opener. I've had it for about 10 years now and just got to hang it up a year ago.

My favorite opener is, "Excuse me miss, does this smell like chloroform?"

Ha...

When I moved last June I neglected to pack any bottle opener whatsoever so, to this day, I have been using the one on the handle of my corkscrew...

You must not have ever played co-ed league softball. I've had bottle openers on my key chain since turning 21... or maybe for a while longer than that.

I always have my leatherman with me (though I do miss by swiss army knife's opener, it was better). When I'm in the house I have a wire opener attached to a janitor's retractable keychain that is tied to the fridge.



For the garage I have a wall mount
