    More than one way to skin a cat. Screwdriver, pocket knife, P38, skinning knife, rupture can on rock or with rock.

    UncleMorgan I like peeling bananas and (occasionally) people.

    That's good tech. You never know when you'll need it. Good to have it when you do.

    Great find. I am going to be trying both of these methods. I do not have concrete but I do have some rocks around. I will report back.

    That was pretty slick, thanks Mr. Chelloveck.

    Although I have a P38 and always have a knife; it is wise to have backups

    Motomon34,
    Concrete is flat so it would be the better choice.

    Great tricks.
    It almost appears as though the concrete method takes less concentrated effort, and not much more time than a common hand operated can opener.
    Thanks Chelloveck.

    Any lone wolf prepper worth his salt doesn't need an opener...he just uses the can as a rock to knock out a deer...or someone that has an opener! :D

    Has anyone opened a can with a spoon yet? We tried and it was not as easy as the video made it look. Had to throw away a spoon after one of the Jr. monkeys got determined and bent the spoon beyond repair. I would like to know if someone has had success with this.
