I thought it would be fun to take a look at some novelty and unique bottle openers—some you might not have just lying around the house.
The name is accurate, if boring: it’s a ring with a built-in bottle opener. Found it over on ThinkGeek (where it’s available for $7.99), it’s clever and alleviates the need to carry an opener separately. If you don’t mind explaining what it is or, you know, being that hardcore.
Hmmm, I don’t know about the punny name, but this one looks fun. And a bit impractical—I’m not sure if you could successfully eat with it, and the main benefit you gain is from not having to get up from your meal to fetch a bottle opener to open another bottle of beer. In other words, to make it worthwhile you’d have to bring all the beer to the table with you ahead of time.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Available from Perpetual Kid for $9.99.
Made from stainless steel and fits in your wallet. The only thing cooler would be to actually have this integrated with your real credit cards.
You can pick these up all over the ‘net for a few bucks, mostly.
Once I saw this one I had to link to it. You know I did. This is geek value only, I admit it. But just imagine every time you open a new beer with this, you could say, "To boldly go where no one has gone before!"
Yeah, that was bad. Sorry.
Available from Red5 in the UK for 12 pounds.
Well, given that I linked to the Enterprise opener, I had to link to this one too. Come on, Dr. Who fans, you know you want it. I mean, it talks! It’s a Dalek and it talks. Like a Dalek.
If you don’t know how cool this is, well, I’m sorry.
Available from Amazon UK for 6.49 pounds.
