Black Diamond Bottle Opener Keychain

Picture this: I’m sitting down trying to open a bottle of brew with no luck at all. When all of a sudden an angel sent from Heaven above comes out from the fog. That angel was a Black Diamond rep. He hands me this fine piece of hand crafted steel and says, “Here you go man. I hope you get some use out of it.” In my hand is the Black Diamond key-chain/bottle opener. Clearly a gift from God.

Flash forward a couple years. I still have the bottle opener and it has seen its fair share of bottle tops. The Black Diamond key-chain/bottle opener is one of the greatest tools that I own. Not only is it a great key-chain but, get this, it is also a great bottle opener. How many of you can say you’ve got something that does that. This little device doesn’t take up much room in your pocket and it doesn’t hang too low when the keys are in the ignition. But don’t think less of it because of its small size, it packs quite a punch. I have yet to find a bottle it can’t open.

Well….when I mean a bottle, I mean a beer bottle or something similar. This thing doesn’t open water bottles. That’s impossible.

Anyways, this versatile little tool is just half of the Black Diamond nut tool. Some of you reading this might say, “Hey I already have a BD nut tool. Can’t I just use that then?” We’ll sure you can. But let me answer your question with a question. How are you going to fit it in your pocket? How are you going to press the gas pedal when it is jabbing you in the leg?

Don’t be a fool. Avoid bulky pockets and bruised legs. Purchase the compact Black Diamond key-chain/bottle opener. I give it 5 stars and I know you will too.

PS: I’m not positive that it’s hand crafted or made out of steel. But who really cares.

EJ-
Your review of the Black Diamond bottle opener is, perhaps, the most useful review I've read in years. Thank you so much for being willing to research and spend the time and energy to give us all a great review on a great product.

I've benefited from many gear reviews, (for example, Kevin's C3 notes and Ed's jacket review) but, at the end of the day, it's all about getting those beers open without mangling your already-torn and bruised fingers even more.

Hats off to BD, and hat's off to you!

Alas, I can't find it on the BD site. A special item, perhaps? Or can you give an URL right to it?

Every beer drinker in the world should be proud to have one of these bottle openers, you know. Some have the will to open a bottle with their teeth, but I don't want to take the risk to try it. if69
