Google “stainless steel flat bottle opener” there are a bunch of restaurant supply stores that sell them for a good price. I bought these wholesale for a little less than 2$ a piece

I think they’re pretty cool… I ALSO think that you better not have ‘em in your pocket if you go to the airport! :-)

Is the bottle opener just attatched to the bottom, or is it surrounded by wood?

I forgot to mention in the original post that a few of these also have magnets in them so I can stick them to the fridge. Or this door hinge.

Nice design and the wood is beautiful. It will make a great conversation piece and can double as a weapon.
