The Brew Solider
Meet Brew Soldier, your key chain warrior. At the size of a standard house key, the Brew Soldier falls in line on your key chain. Cut from Grade 5 Titanium and featuring an Eagle Grip Tooth, this opener never slips when called to action. Additionally, the Orbital Grey finish adds that extra bit of stealth that your bottle opener deserves. The unique shape keeps your keys looking professional yet always beer ready.
Don't slip, get a grip with the Brew Soldier bottle opener.
All in 1 Kickstarter Project
We are back for our second project with a special campaign as part of a promotion Kickstarter is running called All in 1. This campaign will only last for 7 days with only one reward tier.
Since we are only allowed to offer one product and no variations we thought we would do something special for our backers by offering the Brew Soldier in the one-of-a-kind Orbital Grey finish, a stretch goal during our last Kickstarter Project. This grey finish is very unique. It was developed for use on the NASA solar arrays currently up in space. We found the company that applies this finish during our last project, explained our Kickstarter story and got them onboard to apply it to our openers. We have maintained our relationship with this vendor and are excited to offer this previous stretch goal as a standard finish for Brew Soldier!
We hope you are as excited as we are to have the opportunity to participate in Kickstarter's pretty awesome All in 1 campaign!
Cheers, Brian and Team Pry.Me
We were able to deliver on time for our last product, and are determined to do one better. Shipping will start only 3 weeks after the campaign ends. So stock up on your favorite beverages, Brew Soldier will be here before you know it!

How it Works
The Brew Soldier features an Eagle Grip Tooth which hooks under the edge of the bottle cap during cap removal. Since it will never slip, the opener can be much thinner than your typical aluminium key chain bottle opener.
The Brew Soldier is 2.25" long, .400" wide, .100" thick, weighs 0.006 lbs (2.5 g), is constructed from Grade 5 Titanium (6AL-4V), anodized in Orbital Grey color, and is Made in the USA!
No Ruler? Brew Soldier is the length and thickness of a standard house key:
The Reward Tier
Only one reward tier? Why Brian? Please check out the first section above called "All in 1 Kickstarter Project". Cheers!
Backer surveys will be sent out shortly after the campaign ends. The survey will collect your shipping information and will allow you to increase the number of items on your order. We will be using BackerKit to manage orders as they ensuring smooth survey collection and shipping services. After the campaign ends, keep an eye out for emails from Kickstarter and BackerKit with regards to the surveys. We will provide regular updates on the progress of the project :)

Risks and challenges
Timeline creep from our vendor or any issues that arise is always a concern. We delivered our first Kickstarter product, the Pry.Me Penny-Sized Bottle Opener, on time following our timeline but we were also fortunate that no major issues occurred during the manufacturing/delivery process. On this project, we feel confident that we can deliver in half the time of our previous product.
