Army Can OpenerĀ 

Perhaps the US Army’s greatest invention!

Invented in 1942 for use with the K-Rations and later C-Rations, issued during WWII, Korean War and Vietnam up until the 1980’s.

“Old School is cool” Can Opener that has can be attached to key chains or dogs tags.

The notch on the body hooks into the rim of the can, and then the blade is “walked” around the rim to open the can.

Traditionally it would take 38 cuts to open a Can.

Simple, compact and Reliable, this can opener can be used with either left or right handed people.

Sold singly.

No more opening cans with rusty and worn bayonets or field knives!
