- Product Description
The P-51 is the larger version of the P-38 and was often used by mess hall cooks to open the big trays and large cans of chow. The P-51 is a full 2" long. The added length affords more leverage and doesn't require as much thumb pressure to use. Some prefer them over the P-38s because a P-51 will open cans much easier and faster and will last much longer than the P-38. We recommend having one in every car, on every key-ring and included in every emergency survival kit.

Reminds me of the old days in the Army. That's when they had meals in a can. Thanks self reliance for that time in the past. Handy and takes a licking and lasts had mine for 37 years.
These are excellent and can be used as a screwdriver as well. I used these in the service for years.
I have opened countless cans with these little things. they are my can opener of choice on all backpacking and camping trips. I use them for everything from fishing lures, to opening cans to processing quail when I kill them. they work well for that.
These are great can opener tools and are great for scraping a ferro rod to produce spark.
However, What I was shipped were P-38 can openers NOT P-51 as advertised. P-38 openers are about 1.5 inches long and P-51 openers are about 2 inches long.
There isn't anything new to be said about this item that has been around since cans were made. It's simple, weighs nothing, and does the job. Are there better openers. Of course there are much better openers but I'm not carrying them with me when I go back packing. This is a must have option that any prepared person should have.
