When I'm not using my wedding ring to open them (and getting the eyeroll from SWMBO...I get a big kick out of that), I like these two.

One is a 1970s Michelob opener from a flea market...the other a gift from an Australian trip by my dad

bottle opener? I just give a stern look in the direction of what ever I want opened, and it just opens in fear. other than that, I have the Lagerhead B&T turtle and a Leinenkugel's bottle opener that used to be my great grandpa's. my grandpa gave it to me when I was in the 4th grade. he knew who the beer drinker was gonna be.

As a groomsman gift for my buddy's wedding, he found a blacksmith that turned old railroad spikes into bottle openers, and then had our last name stamped on it.

You can buy them here.
