Great Stuff This BASS - ( or move over Atwood ;)

Picked this bottle opener up this morning..



Wonder what the scalloping is for round the edge, just decoration?  :think:

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

Wouldn't be much of a saw... :P

Neat little bottle opener though!

There has to be some long forgotten function for that scalloping.It's too asymmmetrical to not have some kind of purpose.

You don't think it's just for grip?

It might be,but I wouldn't think a bottle opener would need much in the way of ergonomics to do the job,unless after 5 or 6  bottles you need some assistance :drink:

Didn't Bass' logo used to be a triangle?

Bass was just one of the brewers where I live here in Burton on Trent. Just looking for that logo I stumbled across this:

You can see why the town's football team are nick-named "the Brewers" can't you?

Yeah, the triangle's gotta be the Bass logo - used to see it all over the Midlands. Cool opener  :tu:

I looked up the REG NO 745335 and found two different ones on e bay. 

It very well may be that the traingle is nothing more then a logo for BASS because these two items don't have them.

Still very nice items I would like to have one.
