A bottle opener should not be rated on how well it works. Every bottle opener works. So, when purchasing a new bottle cracker, I feel that the most important factor to consider is how stylish it is.
The Beer-Claw Elite passes this test with flying colors. It’s ergonomic, which is nice, but the real selling point here is the American walnut–or exotic Cocobolo if you upgrade–hardwood grip and the durable gunmetal finish that makes this brew opener stand out.
I just ordered one. It’s rustic and manly and perfect for popping a few bottles next time you’re at home, grilling, or even camping.
