The Gropener

Honestly, the name of this bottle opener, the gropener,  isn't good - many of my friends feel the "Grope" part is a little lewd and get a good chuckle every time I mention it.  However, it's a kick ass bottle opener.



The little hook on the left will pry off pretty much any bottle cap whether it is a pry off or twist off and, best of all, it doesn't crimp the cap at all.   It's pretty slick.  The little shiny circle is a nice and fairly strong magnet that catches the cap so you don't have to worry about catching the cap yourself.  Here is a video of me using it.


As you can see it is a one handed operation.  That is kind of nice too because I can quickly open the bottle and then start drinking all in one fluid motion if I want.

It's a little expensive for a bottle opener ($20) but it's a cool little device and it's a great conversation piece. Plus it's a cool gift to give any beer lover.
