Overview

Next to using your eye socket, the Mine Train Spike Bottle Opener is the most badarse way to open a beer. Forged by hand from a spike used on the railways of mine trains, this keychain-sized shaft of steel is designed for the sole purpose of making you look awesome while opening a beer.

After heating it to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, the blacksmith splits the end of the spike into a bottle-popping claw and then twists the handle to create its distinctive spiral design. After a hole is punched for the included keyring, a coating of beeswax is added for protection and a stroke of color. Made in the USA.

Mine Train Spike = your new bottle opener!

As many of you may recall from Six Flags, a Mine Train is an awesome old-school roller coaster.

It's also a type of train used in mines. Go figure, right? Well, said trains have tracks and said tracks require lots of spikes. Those spikes, combined with a scorching amount of heat and a hammer-wielding blacksmith, create the Mine Train Spike Bottle Opener.
