    Default Handforged bottle opener

    This is made by my daughter. She spends time in the shop with me, and has started making things. She forged this from round stock. Then she sanded it clean and did the filework. We tested it, and it is fully functional
    It's the second one she made (first one is hers to keep).

    She asked me if I wanted to put it up for sale and here we are.
    We decided on asking 15 USD, shipping included. This is essentially free + shipping.

    So basically I am sponsoring this because I will pay her the 15 USD. But I consider it worth it to teach her to use her hands and put in time to earn money instead of spending time on a phone.

    Does it have a Snail Forge Logo on it?

    If so, I will take it!

    Knife spine , screwdriver, key, any flat metal surface can open a bottle. Learned that first day of boy scout training. Lol.

    Nice! What a great memory for her to have. Looks like a beauty of a bottle opener too.
