Custom Bar Blades

Our Chicago-made bottle opener, your imprint.

The Manual Bar Blade is a leather and steel bottle opener designed to patina with repeated use. Inspired by the flat metal bottle openers found in the back pockets of bartenders all over the world—we created our take on the iconic bottle popper. Like the patina on a belt or wallet, Bar Blade gets better with use.

The Bar Blade is made in the USA. In fact it's 100% made in Chicago—from the laser cut steel to the genuine Horween Leather. Horween is one of the oldest continuously running tanneries in the United States, and has been tanning their premium leathers in Bucktown for over 5 generations. From NFL footballs to presidential oxfords, Horween leather can be found in quality goods around the world.

The newest edition of the Bar Blade is designed so that custom graphics and branding can be applied. Whether it's a small batch of customized gifts or a larger run to promote your brand or event, Manual can work with you to produce a set of distinctive US-made bottle openers.
