    image.jpeg Hey guys,

    I wanted to start a new thread about showing off your favorite cap lifters and favorite beverages that you lift the caps off of. I'll start with a photo of my new favorite cap lifter in action. Have fun and post them up! Thanks for sharing!

    Sweet Water and Newcastle are some of my favorites. I made the wrench opener for my brother on his 21st birthday. It's fitting since he turns wrenches for a living and for fun.

    No pics but I most often use a lever and fulcrum. Generally a lighter or the back end of a kitchen knife spine.

    My favorite "cap lifter" - a big blade rolled sharply over the knuckle. Cap flies off with an authoritative pop.

    I like variety. I’m very fond of hard ciders and non-fruity craft beers, and frequently load up a 6-packof different beers / ciders in Ingles grab ‘n go single bottle section. I enjoy lagers, pilsners, ales, stouts and hybrids. These are my openers.

    The SAK with Alox scales is a Farmer. The red & green Victorinox Huntsman are the same knife, different handle color. The “Hotel Stadler” opener is an antique I got somewhere. The other multitool prybar opener is one I got from Home Depot. The stag handled knife is a Puma Jagdtaschenmesser. My new hunting knife. I forgot about my Leatherman Juice. Good for wine and beer. The Juice (not shown) and the Victorinox Huntsman in Red is what i’m Carrying today.

    Darn it. I just bought cans then read this oops! I rarely use a purpose made opener. I can't launch them at ballistic speeds like some. But I use the bottom end of a bic lighter braced on my thumb. My smokes are always on the table when I'm drinking. The lighter is always handy. Most creative tool. Had a torn grip on a mountain bike with the bar sticking out. Hooked it on top with front wheel between legs to stop rotation. Smacked it hard and it popped off. Fyi I was already at the bottom the hill. LOL.
    Cheers Jim

    I had a talking one...sorry it's long gone, so no pic. When you placed it on the cap it would say: "Oh yea, time for a beer"

    :p

    Saw this one in a township in South Africa and copied the idea: a piece of wood with a screw in it. Works perfectly.

    Boy, howdy, been a while since I NEEDED a bottle opener. Stuff comes with a screw-off lid anymore. Course, I am a teetotaler...

    Did end up with a wonderful imported Kosher Sarsparilla at a great little unexpected gas station/deli near to Clarksville Arkansas. This a decade back. One of my travel companions had a Utica Kutmaster fishing knife with the bottle opener on the scaler. He was my hero.
