Monks have been brewing beer as long as anyone can remember. Monks were also responsible for locking the church. Because of the correlation of these two, the term “churchkey” was adopted as a means to opening a beer. Perhaps it is a little tongue in cheek as beer generally has nothing to do with pious or religious activities. Regardless, we think those crafty monks were onto something when they started brewing beer in church. We would probably go to church more often if they had beer.
Made out of 1095 and 15n20 steel and with 256 layers, our Churchkey Damascus Steel Bottle Opener will have your friends drooling on themselves with envy. Not only will it pop the top of your favorite brew, it will become a conversation piece for your home bar. We even include a leather sheath with a belt loop for the Churchkey so you always have a way to get those beers open.

About Forseti Steel:
The secret to forging authentic Damascus steel knives has long been lost, but Forseti Steel stays as true to the tradition as they can by commissioning smiths with Damascus ancestry to hand-make all of their blades. The artists behind the enamoring water-like patterns of folded and pounded steel have all learned their skills and techniques from the generations that worked the metals before them.
In addition to paying tribute to the Damascus practice in technique and appearance, Forseti Steel shows its respect for history's heroes, legends, and characters with their knives' names. The 9", walnut-handled Sentinel, for example, honors the Sentinels who stand guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington.
