What buyers are saying
Got these to throw in my bag to cut down a few ounces instead of packing a hand held kitchen opener. Every bit of weight matters when you are trekking with a pack on and these are as close to weightless as you can get. I tried one out and opened a can in around 5 or 10 seconds with no prior practice. Blades are sharp and the notch holds on to the can well enough. 5 or 10 cans in and you would probably be a pro with these. Seems pretty close to the p-38 from what I can remember, not a bad little tool at all and very useful to have if needed. These also have a hole which allows for a lanyard or partnering one up with your fire starter, not a bad idea since they are pretty small. Common sense, but be careful with those can lids, the butt of the opener works great to pry up the lid when you're done so you don't risk a nasty cut out on the trail or even worse in a disaster type situation.
