The Original Snake Bite is a patented keychain bottle opener sheathed in 6 oz. vegetable-tanned blood leather. It has all the components and engineering required to last a lifetime as a part of your everyday carry. This 302 stainless steel tool not only easily opens bottles, it also vents the back of aluminum cans for an amazing pour – every time. Holding it all together are military grade kydex holster rivets and hard drawn nickel plated steel split rings. As always, the Original Snake Bite and all of it's packaging are 100% sourced and proudly made in the USA.
The Original Snake Bite is crafted to open any pry-off or twist off bottle caps and is one of the fastest and easiest to use openers on the market. Caps traditionally create a significant amount of wear on cheap nickel-plated openers that end up rusting over time. The Snake Bite is 100% solid 302 stainless steel and will last a lifetime.
Can venting (or Snake Biting) is a tried and true way to let air into your container while beer is making it's way out. This results in a smoother and faster pour while eliminating a significant amount of air that is typically ingested while drinking directly from a can.

Churchkey Bottle Opener
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
The initial idea was born late one night in 2013 while having a few cold ones with friends. “Opening bottles… venting cans… let’s combine the two into one unique opener!” The process, from the initial basement-prototyping sessions to the finished patented product, was a long and winding road involving multiple designs, prototypes, and 12 oz. test subjects. A year later we landed on this simple yet functional design that is now in over 40 countries around the world.
What makes your product special?
The Original Snake Bite design is not only patented, but also a ton of fun to use. We’re drawing a line in the sand for other brands that claim to be something they’re not and making our mark with everything we build; 100% sourced and handcrafted in the USA.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Seeing our products out in the “wild” without knowing the person. That is an awesome feeling that never gets old and it makes our day every time it happens.
