I'd think it would wear a hole in the pocket, and besides, who needs a can opener these days?

Well, it folds flat. And you gotta have something when the key breaks on your sardine can that's been sitting on the dash for 12 hrs.
And you always want to have something around for doomsday.

I think they try to put pull-tops on all the cans these days.

I have to take it back about not needing a can opener, now that I recall an episode of a British program entitled Three Men in a Boat, from the ancient days of gentlemen boating on the canals in England. A civilized picnic lunch was being enjoyed, and it would have been topped off with a tin of peaches, but alas, no opener could be found, and the veneer of civility wore a little thin.

Ya know, I've seen those can openers used in period war movies of WWII and Nam. No idea why I typed bottle when I meant can.

P-38 can opener. Still have one on my "dog" tags from when I was in the Army. Learned very quickly to secure the awl with a rubber band or you would bleed assuming a hasty prone position.
Yes I still remember C rations and I remember the stink troops made trying to warm MRE's on an intake manifold like we used too with the C ration cans.
In fact I knocked out a guy in basic training by placing two C ration cans in an o.d. green sock and smacking the white off of the dude as he was messing with me. It sure was a pain getting those ham and beans out of the sock later - the damned things wouldn't wash out. My feet smelled pretty interestingly for a few days afterward.
