I’m a bit of a balisong, a.k.a, butterfly knife, aficionado, or at least I used to be when I lived in a really shitty neighborhood in Boston. At the time, I thought I was a ninja, and I never left my apartment without some sort of weapon. Now my butterfly knives collect dust in a drawer, but I still hold a special place in my beer-nerd heart for the dangerous little bastards. (I also now know that I am not, in actuality, a ninja.)
So when I saw BBBarfly.com’s cool new butterfly-knife-style bottle openers, which you can customize with your own design, I was more than a little intrigued. I don’t know if I’ll actually, you know, buy one, because I already have a shitload of bottle openers. But they’re still really cool, especially if you’re a bartender looking for a new way to differentiate yourself from all the other bottle slangers.
You can get a single-color butterfly-knife bottle opener for $20, and you can pick a number of designs for another $10 or so. You can also customize your bottle opener with your own design, but I couldn’t find any pricing information for custom BBBarlys on the company’s website.
Now I can’t wait to go home and play with my butterfly knives. Banzai.
