In 2006 Tokens found an opportunity to work with sports artifacts, mainly vintage stadium seats which we turned into cuff links and pens. When we began to acquire game used baseball bats, hockey sticks, collegiate stadium seats & arena floors we were captivated with the patina, the tangible record of the game's wear and tear, right there on the equipment. A bottle opener seemed a natural way to preserve this patina and give fans a chance to appreciate and share with friends over a beer.
We make the bottle openers in Berkeley, California. The bats, sticks etc are authenticated and then our artisans cut & shape by hand, safety any edges and finally a durable nickel plated opener hardware of our design is attached. We leave the patina on... and we'll leave the opening to you.
