It Came From Kickstarter - PiCO Ti Bottle Opener

I like having a bottle opener on me at all times, but it's gotta be something that can go on my keyring and not rip a hole in my jeans. 

My Brewzer has come in handy more times than I can count, and while there are alternative methods for opening bottles, none of them are especially reliable and are probably going to mean a lot of spilled beer the first time you try them. 
I also like titanium, as most gear folks do. So the PiCO ticks a lot of boxes for me. It's also a fairly reasonable $11 on their Kickstarter page:

There's quite a few stretch goal options available (project was fully funded), like a Ti split ring, or denim ano or damascus finish on the PiCO itself. They all ramp up the price, but I don't see any of it as unreasonable. Just a few bucks for each thing. 

I probably won't ditch my Brewzer for this because I like having the other features it offers (pry tip, screwdriver, box opener, etc.), but if you're on the market for a minimalist keychain bottle opener, this little guy might be worth checking out.
