Looking for the perfect groomsmen gift? Guess what – it’s not a money clip. No offense, money clip makers, we’ve just seen our share (and heard directly from grooms themselves) who have had their fair share of those clips that end up in their sock drawers. Today we’re bringing you something your buddies will actually use – and enjoy – for years to come. These handmade groomsmen bottle openers begin as an ordinary bar of steel. The steel master, Benjamin, uses traditional techniques to slit and drift the end of the bar, shoulder it, forge it, and cut the opener from the end of the bar. Then, he shapes the handle, stamps your customized engraving, and punches the operative bit to the tool. Finally, he cleans it, packages it up, and ships off for gift-giving (or keeping for yourself because it’s so darn cool). This is handmade gift-giving to the extreme degree (quite literally – this forging process involves thousands of degrees!) and unlike any groomsmen gift you’ve ever seen or received in the past. Take a look at the end result:
This particular bottle opener is forged from high-carbon steel:
There’s also this corkscrew which is forged with brass rivets:

I’m digging these! The hardness/ruggedness of these make them the perfect gift for REAL groomsmen. Plus the stamped customization with names and dates, win, win.
