Breacher Up! Custom Bottle Openers

In another departure from our normal tech stories, product releases and in-depth scientific analysis (no laughing), I bring you bottle openers. Albeit really cool bottle openers. Bottle Breacher is an Arizona based company that is owned and operated by military veterans who build customized bottle openers designed to look like .50 caliber and 20mm cartridges as well as the soon to be released fragmentation grenade.

Prices range from around $20 to $35 and some openers can be personalized and engraved.

Bottle breacher


Hand crafted 50 caliber bottle openers made by Military Veterans. The staff at Bottle Breacher used to use 50 caliber ammunition to defend our country down range, they now use them to provide the best man gifts, groomsmen gifts, and promotional products on the market. Whether used for decorative display, at special events, or as your everyday bottle opener; BottleBreacher is sure to impress your friends and get people talking.

Bottle Breacher’s are made from dummy ammunition and are completely safe. They have been professionally powder coated, not spray painted. This is a long process that takes time but keeps the finish for years to come. Our brass is professionally polished, giving it the extra shine that distinguishes it from all others. Engraving is done with a Laser Engraver which creates a unique contrast between the engraving and the coating of the Bottle Breacher, leaving it with a much better finish that is clear and precise.

The owners of Bottle Breacher have been married over 10 years. Eli is a former Navy SEAL turned entrepreneur and Jen has had a passion for business ever since graduating from the University of Arizona Eller College of Management in 2005. Bottle Breacher began in a 1 car garage while Eli was Active Duty and aired on Shark Tank a year and half later. They love to hire vets and reinvest in those that have served. Open your next cold one in style!

    The perfect accessory for your Yeti cooler. I hope the Freedom Frags come with a sticker, too!

    “The staff at Bottle Breacher used to use 50 caliber ammunition to defend our country down range…”

    Translation: The staff at Bottle Breacher used to use 50 caliber ammunition to make the world safe for Exxon…

    • Seth Hill

      Let me guess, you were one of those AZ John Brown Gun Club “protesters/demonstrators” that was “putting the red back in redneck”.

      • koolhed

        Probably not. He’s just laying out the truth.

        • BravoSeven

          Firearms. Not politics.

        • Seth Hill

          The TRUTH? So you believe the BS narrative that our military is essentially an extension of the oil industry?

      • Dan

        You can be anti current use of military and pro Freedom. Or are you one of those anti all other freedoms unless it has to do with Gods and Guns people? Tell me again how many times has freedom been assaulted since we started the GWOT? You know the wars we fought to protect our freedom?

        • Seth Hill

          MY problem is HIS BS statement “The staff at Bottle Breacher used to use 50 caliber ammunition to make the world safe for Exxon”. I am so sick of our military members, vets/current/future, doing their job and it being associated with the BS oil narrative.

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      Come on man.

      • Gary Kirk

        Hey, now I want one..

    • The Rambling Historian

      He has a point even if it isn’t “PC.” Isn’t not being PC part of Bottle Breacher’s mission? The fact is the ammunition they used to use very likely did little to actually defend our country even if the men and women in uniform firing these rounds joined up to do so. I respect those who serve our country even though I despise much of the wars they are sent to fight. Few conflicts we have been involved in within the last century have had anything to do with protecting the American public, and many haven’t even been about protecting “freedom” at all.

    • Dan

      Oh come on now, it isn’t just for Exxon there are plenty other corporations that rely on our military to open new markets for them. Perhaps there was a reason for some of our founders to take a dim view of a permanent military after all.

  • iksnilol

    CAn’t believe there’s a market for it. A crowded one at that.

    • Moonman45

      a crowded market is the perfect place to break one of these things out

      • iksnilol

        Not really, everybody makes 50 bmg bottle openers.

        And who bothers with such a gigantic bottle opener anyways? Just use a pocket knife or something. Having something that bulky for suck little use just strikes me as weird.

        • SP mclaughlin

          And yet we probably won’t have 12.7mm lighters until 2033.

          • iksnilol

            There are shell case evermatches. That’s sorta close.

        • neckbone

          Isn’t there laws in Europe against opening bottles with a knife? Seems like you could have huge numbers of injuries. And many children hurt.

          • iksnilol

            Never heard of anything like that.

          • Jason Culligan

            There are laws about carrying knives in public. Outside of a survival situation it’s forbidden to have one on your person. No law against using one to open a bottle on private property though.

          • Phillip Cooper

            another reason not to live in Europe…

        • Moonman45

          that was a great joke. lol throw me a bone or something. just not one of these faux-grenades

        • HSR47

          “They’re big and ridiculous.”

          Maybe. I bet that makes them harder to lose around the house…

      • neckbone

        Yup, break one out and start screaming aloha snackbar. And watch people scream and run in a crowded supermarket.

    • USMC03Vet

      What products still use bottles with tops that require a specific device to open them still. Hipster micro breweries?

      • iksnilol

        Not only that, but there’s so mamy things that pull double duty as bottle openers. No point in buying a bottle opener that’s only a bottle opener.

      • kbroughton77

        Pretty much any brewery that bottles a beer worth drinking does. That being said, my keychain or leatherman work just fine to remove those pesky caps

        • USMC03Vet

          So basically none because beer tastes like piss anyway.

  • KestrelBike

    Coming soon to a TSA surrender-bin near you!

    • Major Tom

      With the pin pulled and the lever removed…

  • John Hamblin

    I wonder how many people will take these to a public place like a park and cause a massive swat team response?

    • Random Disabled Person

      Why aren’t these people who are calling in false police reports, chase down and held accountable? Fair is fair. False reports are a crime and incur costs to the system. Pulling officers away to chase down and verify an innocent person.

      The saddest part is all the people who are so quick to freak out and call over “perceived” threat, are usually the types who haven’t taken First Aid training and/or carry a small kit in case something was to really happen. Cellphone skill trumps realistic helpful skills, I guess?

      The saddest part of this is these B.S. calls get a more rapid fuller response, meanwhile people in the more “urban” areas can’t have officers respond to actual gunfire from the local hood rats. Due to the sheer number of officers involved in dealing with arrests and under staffing.

      The openers in the 50 call need some sort of leash attachment for bartenders. So they don’t roll across/away the bar or walk off.

      • Phillip Cooper

        “Why aren’t these people who are calling in false police reports, chase down and held accountable? ”

        Same reason that women that file false assault reports against men aren’t held accountable. It’s the culture we live in.

    • datimes

      Your average run of the mill mental defective with a warped sense of humor.

  • USMC03Vet

    Guess I’ll save $40 and just paint my own inert grenade instead.

    • Giolli Joker

      Use a live one, it opens many more bottles, at once.

      • USMC03Vet

        That edge. no blunt force trauma found.

  • The Mystic Seer

    Bad idea. Almost as bad as the solid milk chocolate handgun.

  • GaryOlson

    These would make unique Christmas Tree ornaments for the right person. Or divorce gifts.

  • rick0857

    Coming soon…155mm Howitzer bottle openers, also later models will include 175mm, 8″ Naval, 16″ main gun, and the 120mm cannon openers aptly dubbed The “Undertaker”
