Benjamin Franklin is good for more than poppin’ bottles. In fact, he was a much bigger fan of the hoppy variety of liquor. So big a fan that he once went on record saying, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” And you thought he was only good for electricity. We agree with Franklin which is why we’re never more than a few feet from a cold one and that means having a bottle opener handy at all times. The CXXVI Sea Rope Bottle Opener performs all necessary beer related functions admirably and it also looks like the kind of opener your grandfather would have carried during his Navy days. Each one is individually forged and hand hammered on an anvil five times older than you. In this instance, the 6 1/2″ is adequate and the sturdiness is second to none.
