U.S. SHELBY CO. P-51 Military Style Can Opener
Don’t get caught in a thunderstorm, hurricane or ice storm without a working can opener. The P-51 Military Style Can Openers are perfect for camping, hiking, fishing or for the survivalist in your family.
The P-51 can opener 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. We recommend having one in every car, on every keyring and included in every emergency survival kit.
