I have never been one to carry a bottle opener on my key chain. I feel they get in the way of my keys and subconsciously I feel I would be judge by others as an alcoholic. That is no longer the case how ever. The folks at Portsmith Company have come up with a bottle opener solution so simple that it fits right in your wallet. The fulcro opener is like none I have ever seen. It is sturdy, looks cool, fits right in your wallet or even your pocket. A recent contest on their instagram page landed me one and needless to say but I was excited. After seeing countless photos of others cracking their brews open with it, I couldn’t wait to start opening beers of my own with this hand crafted and proper bottle opener.
Portsmith Company is a newer company on the block making handsomely crafted goods with minimalism in mind. Working with local skilled woodworkers, metal smiths & seamstresses to help craft their products, the company puts out genuine and wholesome goods to make your life easier. At one year old the company is gaining lots of momentum socially on the internet with their minimalist items whether it’s the fulcro or one of their snazzy minimalist wallets. With the right ideas in mind, Portsmith Company is bringing current times back to a day where everything was hand crafted and personally I think that is good thing. Their story is too much to divulge here but head over to their site and you can read all about them.
I am still impressed that I can just stick this in my wallet. It might not be as swift as an opener on a key chain but when I pull it out it becomes a conversation piece and the person I am talking to is that much more interested in getting their own and hearing about the company.
