P-38 ( Small ) & P-51 ( Large ) Sizes

Don't let it's small size and low price fool you. These handy P-38 can openers were issued by the U.S. military for decades. Growing up, these were always popular with Boy Scouts and travelers. These are brand new, nice and shiny. We have opened giant #10 industrial cans with them. It's not the fastest can opener you have ever used but we feel confident saying, it's probably the smallest. 

A Trivia Note: The P-38 Can opener got its name because it took 38 movements to open a standard military C-Rations can. Having canned food for an emergency does you no good if you can't get in to it.

Replacement from 1990's military

Got both sizes. Replacement for military issues from the 90's. I hope these last as long.

Haven’t had one since having C-rations. Looks and works just like they use to. Memory’s

Old standby

A friend returned from a camping trip where his wife didn't pack an opener and he resorted to a screwdriver. These will go in his bags now. Never fail.

P51 is great, P38 is a pain

P38 is only worth getting if you need minimal size (in your altoids tin?) and don't use it often. P51 is quite usable. Ti versions would be interesting but likely expensive. Maybe you can lighten the steel ones by drilling some holes. I didn't weigh mine when I had them, but web search indicates P51 is about 9g while P38 is 4g. Actually I doubt the latter figure, but maybe someone with a scale can check. Don't put either on your keys since the blade will flop around and shred your pocket.
