Really, do you guys have a feel for what it takes to machine a "nice" part? Not to mention paying the rent, buying materials, keeping sharp tools in the machines (expensive). Not to mention utilities, insurance etc.


No doubt that this is in a different league and for a niche market of a class of people who actually do appreciate fine engineering and materials that costs a bit more.

We are considering a Damascus version.


:shock:

How about Mokume Gane?

Should be much easier to machine too.

Aside from the material and prestige, I would be more comfortable parting with my money for something that can do more than just open bottles though.

Heck you can get a tacticool rail mounted bottle opener these days :)

Maybe some socket shaped holes to allow it to be used as a rudimentary spanner, a fold out saw, something along those lines.

If you're doing some in 6al4v then anodising would be a great idea... titanium has some of the nicest anodised colours.

Other finishes I'd suggest would be a satin, parkerized (or iron phosphate), blued, etched (ferric chloride on the steel one), blasted or hydrographically dipped.

Are the rewards correlating with actual prices or do you have a different scheme in mind?

I'll try think up something to add..surely there's another handy addition in there somewhere ;)

Edit:

Here's an idea..Not sure if you guys are keen on leatherwork but I'm sure sheaths/holsters would sell to the gun/knife guys. Plus then you could add another tool of some kind. Obviously not a knife like shown but you get the idea

Have you seen the Gerber Artifact? Definitely something I'd be more likely to buy:

Looks like it takes standard craft knife blades too.

The Shard is one piece, even simpler:

Personally I'd veer away from blades in a product to quite potentially be used in a public environment or around alcohol... But the shard is pretty cool.

+1 for inonickname... Some partys i've done with friend tend to prove you should stay away from pretty much anything actually...

Fair point, but useful to point out that the Artifact blade is removable. Also normally if you're opening beer bottles and need your own opener, you're clearly not at someone's house but on a picnic/BBQ/camping trip, so there's already plenty of knives around :)

On the other hand if it's a keyring you have on you all the time maybe it's not advisable, I used to have a swiss knife on my keyring but stopped carrying it for this reason.

I personnaly know how to open a beer with pretty much anything from a sheet of paper, a lighter, a wood log, a table corner .... haha sometimes it's useful :D
Nevertheless, it's fair to say that the design of the opener in the first post is great!

The door catch on landrover series/defenders works perfectly as a bottle opener too :) as does the Galil bipod hehe:

And as the saying goes...."You get what you pay for".

You guys never sit around on your collective ass and just talk like so many do. You're always pushing to create. Kudos you both of you.

I'd buy one, personally, for the simple fact that I tend to not lose things that cost me money

Can't tell you how fun it is trying to open a bottle on Bourbon St. with your car keys while at the same time not broadcasting the fact you are in possession of glass bottles. :roll:

How about a bottle opener that also can be used as a personal electric tracked vehicle?
