I made one of these some time back and a friend just saw it. He just had to have “several” for his family and friends that work with wood. So the band saw went to work on some Red Oak and now there are[almost] a dozen HAND SAW openers ready. I PUT PENNY’S IN WHERE THE MANUFACTURES BADGE WENT.

Pop a top or saw some wood. Great idea. These are nice gifts. I can’t read the branding, what does that say?

This is certainly different. It would be hard to misplace that cool looking bottle opener for sure!

I’ll take one…....................

Great opener. You can get a good grip and open a lot of them fast ;-)
