    No joke, I picked up a craftsman one from Sears a few years ago. It is a beauty.

    No lifetime warranty though...

    I used to always date bartenders in my younger days. I have a collection of "barblades" I accumulated from sleepovers. They work great and don't break.

    Are you able to mount one on a wall or cabinet?  Those wall mounted ones work so well, and fun to use too.

    Uncrate has pages of pretty cool ones: https://uncrate.com/search/bottle+opener/

    If I didn't already have more bottle openers than I know what to do with, I'd pick up the "bottle key" on page 4: http://uncrate.com/stuff/bottle-key/


    And I agree with Peter @peter4jc ; about the wall mounted option; great choice if you can do it. 
    I mounted 1 on the side of my grill and it's awesome; going to pick up another one to mount in the garage. 

    * I have a new address as of 3/24/18 *

    Love the old school reference. When I say church key now, nobody knows what the heck I'm talking about.

    I've never heard them called anything else. They're fantastic though. Magnetic, right there on the fridge door minimizing the time between when my beer leaves the fridge and when it gets in my belly. Nearly indestructible and only a couple bucks. Doubles as a prison shank in a pickle. It'll open your can of pork n' beans too. What's not to like?

    Just buy screw off caps. Problem solved. Or set the edge of the cap on a sharp edge of counter top and smack top of cap. It will pop right off. Or buy a Swiss Army knife. Always in your pocket and ready to serve.

    My BIC not only lights my cigars but it opens my beer too. They are sturdy, reliable, easy to carry, and cheap.  Best bottle opener I have ever used.

    Go vintage. Actual antique. If nobody else broke it in the last 50, 60 years,.......... you won't either. 

    Check antique shops and junk shops. Head straight for the glass cabinets where they keep the the smalls. The smaller, easily shoplifted items.

    @roland_7707 and any other beer drinker. For a bottle opener go to www.etsy.com and search Yopener, read the story, buy an opener. I own a few and have given more than a few out as gifts. On top of the story it's a simple concept that makes it the perfect opener.

    I tried using Todd's Yopener.  It was too complicated.  He made fun of me.  
    I almost unfriended him there on the spot.  Then he showed me his sausage and we were cool again.

    It's true, I was there. Todd has great looking meat though.
