Birucandashi in AEB-L

Here’s another of my favorite EDC’s, same as I carry: a Birucandashi in AEB-L.
As craft beer has moved to cans, so has the Birudashi evolved a new sub-species optimized to match. The tapered tail neatly lifts a pop top, and also is effective on bottle caps using the lighter/lever method. For you bushcrafters, the sides of the bevel throw wicked sparks on a ferro rod.

Pair of Birudashi

Here are a couple interesting #birudashi just off the bench: one new prototype Birucandashi in AEB-L, and one hand-forged “traditional” Mini-birudashi from a small slice of an E/V Nautilus rudder bearing. The Birucandashi is fully tapered for lifting can pop-tabs like a bartender’s tool, and can open bottles with the lighter/lever technique. Why not simply taper the traditional cap-lifter? Because it would shred your pocket and be an injury risk! Looks like i have some “testing” ahead of me. 😃
