Step 1: Buy a good beer that has the new animal-friendly 6-pack "ring"

Step 2: Enjoy the beer whose can you want to look at for the next few years (does not have to be same as #1).

Step 3: Cut the can with a utility blade

Some of the finest engineering--presumably while drinking--I've ever seen!

And as a Kentucky fan noticing your pint glass, thank you for beating the UNCheaters!

You steps to a blade bank...or 1 step from drinking 5 beers then mistakenly (or drunkenly) drinking a can of used blades.. Biggrin

Bu-bu-b-but . . . Red Tail Ale does not ship in cans, and one suspects that trying to make a Red Tail Ale bottle into a blade bank would be a bit messy.

I once moderated a survival forum. This guy made similar illustrated directions to make a emergency signal mirror by polishing the concave base of an aluminum can with a Hershey bar and asked for input. I pointed out A. In a survival situation I would drink the beer and eat the Hershey bar to insure a hydrated and nutrient rich brain to ponder my next move. B. Have a proper signaling mirror in my kit. The whole sixpack banding concept is stupid. The increased plastic use is hardly progressive.
I like your recycling though.

I'm sure I can speak on behalf of the team when I say "You're welcome!"  Biggrin

I have not seen this new animal friendly six pack holder.  I am impressed that some beer company came up with this idea.  As an animal lover I congratulate you for purchasing it.  Ever think of taking out a patient on your blade bank design?
