If you're looking for a combination keychain bottle opener that will only improve with age, then check out the Limited Edition Rangefinder Bottlehook ($33). This version is designed and cast in Indiana, made out of solid brass and features a black finish. The bottlehook gets its name from the wear and patina it takes on over time, just like an old school rangefinder camera. As it ages you'll eventually be able to see a bit of brass showing through the finish giving it a unique appearance. Because these are in limited quantities hurry to pick yours up before they're all sold out.
