This bottle opener is an excellent first project.
The student is introduced to the blacksmith's techniques of flattening, bending, hot-cutting, drawing-out to a taper, chamfering, more bending, and twisting (in that order).
This class also serves as a pre-requisite for classes that have "A Taste of Blacksmithing" as a pre-requisite.
In the end, the student can reasonably expect to have a pleasantly hefty handful of bottle-opening wonderfulness.
If you really enjoy this class, there is more you can do afterward.
