I never thought I would write about something like this. I thought I would leave it up to other people to write about tea bags, detergents, weed wackers, or hoes because I really don't care what you drink, wash with, cut with, or if you just like a good hoe now and then. In those things I can be very nonjudgmental.

Then, I came across this little item which I transferred from dog tag chain to key chain where it has remained ever since, where it holds as much importance and value as any key I have ever owned.

It's a can opener that was once shiny silver that has aged gracefully into a very dark gray from years of use. It not only opens cans, but last night it cut through the tape of the latest delivery from Amazon vine. It will outlast any fancy-schmancy can opener that is guaranteed not to leave dangerously sharp can tops, but not guaranteed to wear out at my earliest inconvenience.

The other reviewer didn't like this because it wore out for him. He must have a "knock-off" made of inferior alloys that brought on metal fatigue. But if you get a good one, it will work anytime, everytime, and it will become indispensible. The other drawback is that, like everything military, it is for the right hand, although I have seen hard-core sinisters use it backwards. (I'm not at all ambidextrous. Quite the contrary, I use both hands)! The little hook folds in, so you don't scratch yourself.

Better ones can be found, for an arm and a leg, at The Cavalry Store, or Ranger Joe's.

So, get off your can. You can do it. You can buy it. If you don't like it, you can always can it. That, you...

can do.

Use to get these P-38's all the time in the army. Just bought a few to throw on the keychain. They are study and do what they were meant to do. Can't say much more then that. Will post a couple pictures for those of you that don't know the real size. Highly recommend.

This is the standard issue GI can opener. Basic, rugged, and portable. Throw one in your bug out bag and always have a way to open your favorite meal under the nuclear fallout sky.

What can I say? It is a can opener. It works. You can use it to open cans. Buy it if you need it.

The original -- this one -- WWII & Vietnam, P-38, G.I. Can opener
is so small it easily fits in your Levi's Watch(5th)Pocket.

If you're arthritic, get the slightly LARGER P-51... which is
only slightly less possible of being fit into a nostril.
G.I. Type P-51 Can Opener - 10 Pack

Great invention!

Key word: Small.

This the smaller of the two.

As a No Longer Active Marine, I remember having my own "John Wayne" can opener hanging alongside my dog tags. C rats never had a chance around me.

I keep it on my key ring, so it is always handy. It is great for traveling, or when I am riding my motorcycle.

Add this to your keychain so you can open cans and cut strings anywhere. Annoying plastic string holding shoes together? Fixed. Wanna remove the top of a coke can or a can and not leave a sharp edge? Then this is perfect for you, plus it fits on a keychain.
