Best non-SAK with a Bottle Opener?

    Hey guys. I was doing my annual Christmas shopping and I considered some of the small folders with bottle openers. Yeah, I know any knife can be used to lift a cap. I'm talking about dedicated openers, and not as part of a Swiss Army Knife, Leatherman, etc.

    I looked at stuff like the Kershaw Shuffle and Cinder but I'm not exactly thrilled. So what else is out there? I'm looking for less expensive ones that I can give away as gifts and also maybe a better one for myself to use around the campfire.

    If you're open to traditional slipjoints, Case makes a Trapper with one blade and a caplifter. (GEC also makes a couple along the same lines, but they're generally harder to find and more expensive.)

    My suggestion would be a Kershaw Ti Talon (1421ST).

    It never appealed to me but I've got a 1420 and 1420ST that I like very much.

    Best less expensive knife. Tough one.

    I've asked myself this question several times. My favorites are super hard to find or way too expensive. I like the Jarosz Apple Jack, and the Esnyx Beer Buster (below).

    I like the Kershaw select fire. I know a lot of people here hate it though.

    I recently picked up a Harnds Lark. It's the right size for a key chain and the clip doubles as a cap lifter. The knife is small, non-locking, and made of 8Cr14Mov. Of course, that's better than the 3Cr13Mov on the Cinder! :eek: The blade is thin and came relatively sharp, so that's something. Maybe you can help me try out the cap lifter.

    You've looked at the Shuffle, but have you seen the Shuffle 2?

    Not a folder, but an awesome knife with a caplifter.

    Well, I tried the Harnds Lark on a Warsteiner. It worked but I'm not in love with it.

    I think the Kershaw Pub is a fun bottle opener with a knife on it. Also, the pocket clip of the Buck Spitfire works as a bottle opener.

    What about a Gerber Dime?
    The best thing about it is the ever ready caplifter. I add kydex clips on string to the keychains and give them to coworkers as gifts.

    This is the better one for yourself; in your favorite steel, mine is Rex 45 :)


    Not a knife, but as a fun gift:


    Although you could just buy an M17 wrench, will work too (the famous German "17er Schluessel").

    Give lots of gifts, something useful they will always carry. Who needs another cheap knife?
