    I kept rubbing my eyes and tried to clean my monitor looking at the blurry pic :)

    Bottle opener?

    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. :laugh:
    And you always want to have something around for doomsday.:drinkup:

    I have one hand in my pocket and the others waving a taxi cab.

    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.
