Everybody needs a bottle opener, especially now that most of the newer beers don’t have twist off caps. This is a unique new style of bottle opener that is patented and manufactured in the US. This heavy duty opener is machined from solid 304 Stainless Steel, so it will last a lifetime. It's also different in that it can be stood on it's end. The handle is hand turned from Bubinga. Bubinga is an exotic hardwood from equatorial Africa. Bubinga has a close resemblance to rosewood and is sometimes called African Rosewood. It is used for veneer, inlays, fine furniture, cabinetry, turnings, and other specialty items. The opener is glued into the handle with high strength epoxy so it is permanently secured. The opener measures approximately 1 1/4” diameter by 5” long. After turning and sanding to 400 grit, multiple coats of wipe-on varnish have been applied for durability. The finish is completely food safe. If cleaning is required, hand wash with mild detergent, rinse and dry.
