I think I have more bottle openers now than when I originally bottled!

I'm living in Brazil right now and almost all the bars I've been in use a little piece of dowel and a screw. Too bad the only beers available for them to open are Brazilian Pilsners (I'm an ale guy).

I just use my ring. Not the bottle opener one, just a regular ring.

I use a tactical beverage entry tool from LaRue Tactical know as the Dillo. They sent me one for Christmas a couple of years ago. It works for can tabs, screw offs and pop tops. I like the wood handle and the screw idea and those forged jobs are pretty sweet too.
