Open all your bottles in style this year with a leather-wrapped stainless steel bottle opener.

Why are some bottle openers called church keys? The answer... Openers that became associated with “church key” were simply  devices used to pry open a new type of bottle closure that was invented in 1892 — the bottle cap or “crown cork.” Since necessity is usually the mother of invention, someone in Canada in 1900 is thought to have patented a new style of opener that, apparently to many, resembled a large, simple key.
