To start off let me say this is the first review I've ever left, after ordering several hundred times from Amazon.
This is NOT a real SuckUK bottle opener!! I had read the bad reviews, and seen the reviews saying what others received was not authentic, but I ordered anyway.. My mistake!! My gf & I are going to Mexico in a month & the small village we are staying in sells almost all drinks in glass bottles, and you need a bottle opener to open them. After several trips down there in the past I've always needed a bottle opener but had not remembered to bring one, so this trip I decided to buy one for my gf & I to clip onto each of our backpacks. I seen the SuckUK key opener & decided to get it. After reading the bad reviews I decided to order one from Amazon, as well as one from the actual SuckUK website.. The Amazon version showed up a few days ago.. And I just received the authentic version directly from SuckUK today via UPS. The fake Amazon version is slightly smaller in certain places, although not super noticeable when looking from one to the other.. When you set them side by side it becomes readily apparent. The authentic SuckUK key is made of hardened steel, and looks like it has been chromed.. Whereas the Fake Amazon version is not, and would explain why so many reviews complain of them breaking after only a short period of time.
I have to say I have not used either one yet, so I can't attest to the working performance of either one personally, but I would suggest to anyone looking at this item to spend around $5 more and order the authentic SuckUK key bottle opener directly from their site!!
