There are crude things that some men do with their beers—mostly involving opening them: the thud thump of palming a beer cap against a table, chipping one's molar prying off a pop cap. Of course, the elegant way of going at it is a bottle opener, and this handcrafted version from Machine Era Co. may be our favorite one yet. Manually machined within a 0.005 of an inch tolerance from a solid bar of cold-formed steel, each opener is hand-stamped with its production number. And for maximum durability, the industrial bottle opener is finished with a waxy, rust-proof coating.
