    Anyone else like old openers? I have a small collection of 40 or so. Some somewhat rare, some pretty common. I have many dupes, so trading could happen.

    Seeing your picture I actually remember seeing these around the house when I was a kid. If I knew then what I know now I would have kept it. Vintage is always cool!

    Yes, I know old thread...but it fits in perfect with the topic at hand...here are some pics, I only have three old ones. They all have a story so I probably wouldn't trade them. I sometimes hit antique malls, etc. around St. Louis and see many of these types. St. Louis had a ton of breweries back in the day and also a ton of these openers. They are getting hard to find it seems.

    Awesome!! I have several of the Falstaff one. I enjoy the hunt, but usually find the same ones over and over.

    I might start looking for them...That Falstaff I found in a vacant house I was doing some work in. Nothing like a free bottle opener! I'll keep my eye open for some of these if I get a little bit of time. Can't have enough old stuff around!

    I'm sure I could go on the big auction site and buy them all day, I'd rather get out and about and find them on my own.

    I'd love to see more pictures from anyone of these old openers, they don't make em' that way anymore.

    Had a friend make me this one... that’s a 750mL bottle. It weighs about 6 pounds.

    I would literally break something with that.

    I'm clumsy.
