I gave these as Christmas gifts to my beer lover friends and they were a huge hit. One of them told me it was the best bottle opener he has ever used because it hasn't worn down even after months of use.More > < Less

About Muirwood Reclamations

Right Track

This robust railroad spike bottle opener could’ve very well been part of an American railroad.

Maker Scott Fischer teamed up with a local steel factory in Itasca, Illinois to source real railroad spikes to repurpose into these durable openers.

This heavy, statement-making tool is easy to get a handle on. Each one has an industrial-looking stamp that signals its batch and a sleek leather lanyard to give you a better grip.

As a Coast Guard member, Scott was transferred from Key West to Chicago. In an attempt to escape the cold and keep busy, he started working with reclaimed materials in his garage. Every so often he’d crack open a beer with a rusty railroad spike—this was his first unintentional prototype.

The hefty-but-practical design is a nod to America’s history and a conversation starter all in one.
