Fully functional bottle opener recycles the chain and rear sprocket off a bicycle drive train. Opener is built with heavy duty rivets to insure longevity. A circular washer punched from salvaged street signs is used as both ornament and name tag.
Every opener is hand made and one-of-a-kind. I pull chains and worn sprockets from scrap bins at local bike shops. Clean and tumble all parts with stainless steel shot for 24 hours. Each opener is flame burnished with a coat of wax to preserve patina and inhibit further oxidation.
Re-Cycle Opener is customizable. I will fabricate an opener to specified color and size for an additional $3/opener. Please contact me directly if interested.
