Recently, I acquired from the Counter Intelligence Corps Association a bottle opener with the Military Intelligence branch insignia. This is a design that would be easy for Spyderco to do, laser cut steel and a black "bug".

Been using my Micra for this lately. For a long time I had trouble getting it to consistently work the first try, but lately I've been having good luck with it.

Bottle openers are cool, but I don't drink so many beers that I want to carry one around with me all the time. I like my knife to be a knife, and don't want it cluttered up with extra gizmos. How can I open my beer using whatever tools are normally at my disposal?

This is a variant of an old rock climber's trick where we'd use a 'biner to open our beers. The key is to give the blade some upward pressure with the thumb of the "bottle hand," while giving a little upward rotation with the "knife hand." Do it right, and you're not putting much pressure onto the pivot of the knife. The trick is all in your thumb.

i don't drink at all, but i've been getting into playing around with a balisong trainer that started falling apart almost immediately, so i just ordered a bbbarfly. flipping is a lot of fun and i do occasionally enjoy the mexican coke that still comes in glass bottles and has cane sugar instead of corn syrup. plus, you can take a bottle opener anywhere. i'll try to remember to post back here when i get it in the mail next week.

I found those four openers in a box in my dad’s attic while doing his estate. When I mounted them they were so dark you couldn’t even read them, I took a sheet of scotch brite and gave them 6 or 8 light swipes to clean them up a little.

The Life is Good opener was a gift from my wife.......I “couldn’t not” mount it there also! :rolleyes:

The Dr. Pepper one works the best, and it’s my favorite!

My dad carried this in his wallet as long as I can remember. When he passed I took it and contacted the Jack Daniels distillery and inquired about a few more to give to my brother and friends. It's doubles as a spinner to determine who buys the next round. I've always thought it was really cool even though I rarely ever use it
