I Forge Iron

First bottle opener


Recommended Posts

Greetings Teebs,


Don't take much to open up the Frosty one...   Super nice for your first one..   For practice on the next one Taper the center to about 3/8 square and give it a twist...  Then form the end..


Forge on and make beautiful things

Keep up the good work

Frosty, you have a good point! They make good gifts, and it seems that bottles that are not twist off are making a come back. Especially in the smaller "craft" beers.

Jim, thanks, I was thinking about putting a twist in the handle, never thought to taper it down a bit. Will try that on the next one.

Today I made another bottle opener, this time I used half a farrier rasp. I should have used one of the crappy case hardened ones, this was a good high carbon steel rasp and takes a little more effort to move!
