50 Cal Bottle Opener

I came across Bullet2Bandages a couple of weeks ago via Facebook. In perusing their web site I learned that this company was founded by two Navy veterans whose goal is to create unique objects from fired brass and use a portion of the profit to support various non-profit organizations which support veterans and their families.

Necklaces and bracelets make up the majority of the products they offer, but I decided the bottle opener made from fired 50 caliber brass would be more useful to me. Besides, one can never have too many bottle openers. And this one is sure to be a conversation starter.

Does it work? Quite well in fact. I admit I had some apprehension that this would be more eye-candy than function, however the cut made to the brass grips the bottle top, and the weight of the brass and reloaded bullet, provides good leverage. Oh, the eye-candy factor is cool too.

I purchased this product myself and no compensation was received for this review.


  1. Great. I wouldn't advise carrying it while flying. The TSA wouldn't know what to do!
