Bottlefly: The Bruce Lee of Bottle Openers
Remember that kid in your high school who thought he was a ninja? Like Napoleon Dynamite without the llama or the dancing skills, he was never without his nunchaku, his throwing stars, his butterfly knife. Yeah, that guy was totally weird, but you have to admit...butterfly knives are pretty damned cool. A few twists and a flick of the wrist, out pops the blade. Another flick, the blade's inside the handle again.
Now, some genius has had the amazing idea of combining the geeky panache of the butterfly knife with the utilitarian necessity of the bottle opener. Yes, the Bottlefly bottle opener is a true case of East meets West, and you can add the flair of a Kung Fu movie to every single beer you open. You'll be the Chuck Norris of cerveza every time you flick out the bottle opener "blade." Plus, you know everyone's going to want to play with this thing after they've had a few, and you won't have to worry about anyone cutting themselves when they show off their skills.
You can get the Bottlefly, AKA the Balisong Bottle Opener or the Bottle Ninja, at quite a few bartending shops on the Web. We found one site, BottleflyUSA.com, which claims to be the "home" of the Bottlefly, but their order form doesn't seem to work. Shoot them an email at the address on the page to find out about ordering one, or you can Google Bottlefly bottle opener or Balisong bottle opener to find the best place to get your hands on a Bottlefly of your own.
