This Christmas I decided to surprise my 27-year-old son and not ask him what he wanted for Christmas. I made him up a key chain like mine made up of:
- This P38 (had to drill the hole slightly larger to fit over the Lucky Line 81101 Key Ring)
- Stanley 39-130 3 x 1/4-Inch PowerLock Key Tape (used all the time when I'm buying stuff in the store)
- Leatherman 831189 Squirt PS4 (pliers is great, the scissors and knife are Exacto-blade-sharp, and the airlines will steal it from you)
- Kingston DTSE9H/8GBZET Flash drive (Very useful when you need to bring back a copy of something, or give someone else a copy. It's smaller than any key, one-piece metal, no ridiculous cap to lose, and you won't drive off and leave it stuck in a computer somewhere because your car keys are with it.)
- Kikkerland Camera Magnifier with LED Light (MG43) (when you're working something in a dark area trying to read half-worn-off model numbers or finding something you dropped outside at night. It uses replaceable CR927 batteries that haven't ever had to be replaced, and best of all, SMALL. With chain and all, it is no longer than my car key.)
- Lucky Line 81101 Key Ring to tie it all together (The 81101 cable key ring doesn't unlock when you don't want it to. However, in addition to the movie, it required some practice on my part to get the hang of locking and unlocking it.)
The cable key ring beats the stars out of rigid key rings because a flexible cable enables everything to lay flat in your pocket, so it doesn't poke you when you squat down, or shred your pocket when you pull it out. The only thing on it with any significant weight, is the tiny version of the Leatherman. This combo has saved me untold time time being able to fix things on the spot without having to stop to fetch tools, slice open boxes, after maneuvering into a dark cramped area being able to read half worn away serial numbers, and being able to measure things in the store to make sure that I return with the correct size.
That's about a $40 key chain, and you can never know how Christmas surprises will go over. Well, I hit it out of the park this time. I also learned something along the way. The new P38 looks exactly the same as mine, but they don't work exactly the same. On both his P38 and P51, the blade snaps shut. Mine flops back and forth. I remembered that mine was that way when it was new. Even though I like the smooth worn condition of the one I have, and my worn one has never caused me a problem, I ordered a new one.
Now I have another problem. Others want one like we have, and I'm ordering again, so I decided to document it here in case someone else likes the combination.
After reading some of the other comments, it's great these things have other uses. My only shock was in how they were delivered. They were delivered in what looked like an envelope. But I guess that's the most realistic way to send them to people.
Anyway, no complaints!
For it's price, size and effectiveness, I would definitely take these openers over the typical twist geared ones. Great for road trips and backpacking.
Now the question is how long can the blade on these openers last?
After using these for a few weeks I still love them. However one problem that came across is that these things do rust if you leave them in water for extended periods of time. The metal on these things are not coated. I am not removing a star for this since these are only a dollar each and the chance of leaving them in water for long duration is rare. Not to mention your typical can openers rusts as well. This is more of an FYI for everyone.
I could not be more pleased with this purchase.
They're built like a tank, too simple to break, and surprisingly easy to use. I can only assume that other reviewers who complained about the ease of use have never handled a tool before in their lives, as I'm not exactly a handy man and I was cruising through cans from the get go. Watch a YouTube video on how they work and you'll never forget.
The P-51 has been on my keychain for only a week and already I've used it as a can opener, flat head screwdriver, and as a mini pry bar.
Can't beat the functionality for the price or the footprint in your pocket.
Chances are if you're even considering buying one of these, you'll be handy enough to fix a little manufacturing kink like that yourself.
5 stars for the clever product, -1 star for the "some further assembly required" defect.
But the reason for buying these is because the twist can openers on the market today are more trouble than they are worth, nor do they last very long.
The 38/51 will open a can in a matter of seconds depending on how fast you can rock it back and forth.
