Own a piece of history! Our bottle opener is crafted from old, authentic salvaged steel rail spikes representative of those used throughout North American rail systems.
The invention of the rail spike is attributed to Robert Livingston Stevens and its first recorded use was in 1832. The spike's purpose is to hold the rail onto the rail tie. In 1982, the spike was still the most common rail fastening method in North America. Spikes are routinely cycled out for wear as railroads conduct maintenance.
