These were forged before tonight’s winter storm. Productive night.
So, the round hole in the cap-lifting tab on this bottle opener was last night’s mistake (at the time a crack/ fissure). A little work with a Dremel tonight and I’m unusually pleased with it now.
Here’s a special variation of my tentacle bottle opener made from a special material. This particular opener is made from wrought iron sourced from Providence, RI. It came from a derelict building that was built sometime in the late 1920s (possibly very early 1930s).
