Hand Forged Steel Bottle Opener

Hand Forged Steel Bottle Opener

This hand forged steel bottle opener with copper rivet is one of the best looking bottle openers I’ve seen in a while.

Each bottle opener is individually made by hand on an anvil by metal artist Lyle Poulin, and then finished by hand to ensure proper fit. The steel develops a very unique surface texture that comes from being heated to 2000 degrees and then hammering it to shape, and the opener is designed to last for generations.

The Rack by J. L. Lawson & Co.

J. L. Lawson & Co. is a third-generation machine shop out of Joshua Tree, CA, that specializes in high quality stainless steel, steel, and brass goods including rings, spinning tops, belt buckles, and bottle openers.

I recently purchased a belt from J. L. Lawson & Co., so I can attest to the quality, and you can get a feel for the craftsmanship by checking out this video, which shows the process they go through to make a single copy of The Rack, a cold rolled steel bottle opener & key rack:

If you’re looking for a bottle opener that will last a lifetime, then check out J. L. Lawson & Co., because it doesn’t get much better than a tool that was hand made by a single craftsman, right here in the US of A.

As you may have noticed, I’m always on the lookout for new and unusual bottle openers.

That said, this Zombie Bottle Opener is certainly one of the strangest that I’ve come across.

Each one is handcrafted and hand painted, which means that no two are exactly alike, and since they’re made of a tough urethane resin and feature a solid steel opener, they’re designed to last a lifetime. (And if you happen to become a beer-drinking zombie, even longer…)

The Industrial Bottle Opener from Adam Hogsett is manually machined from cold formed steel (with a light coat of wax to prevent rusting), hand stamped with a sequential production number, and features a strap made of hand-sewn, tanned leather.

If you’re looking for a bottle opener that stands out from the crowd, then look no further, because the Industrial Bottle Opener is hard to beat.
