The Greenman Bushcraft P-38 Can Openers are made from solid stainless steel. Each can opener is small, folds flat, and will fit neatly inside a survival kit. Unlike some camping can openers, ours have been sharpened, so they can be used in place of a knife in emergencies, and the small notch under the 'tooth' attaches to most cans meaning less chance of slipping.
P-38 Can Openers
These small can openers were first developed during World War II in 1942 by the U.S Army Research Laboratory. Nobody knows the exact reason why they were named P-38 (although they are 38mm in size!) but it is often said it used to take 38 punctures around an old-style can to open it fully.
Our can openers are supplied idvidually, and may vary slightly from those shown in the image used.
