So, what's the best way of opening thick wax sealed bottles of beer? After slicing open my hand and a trip the ER I've determined that my method is not very effective and probably not the best way to do it. How do you guys open thickly sealed wax top bottles?

^ that or a short paring knife. The latter is safer.

I use the foil cutter on my waiter corkscrew. Generally if you can make enough space just under the cap you can pop the cap without removing all the wax first.

Hopefully you were still able to pour the beer before heading to the ER.
