Some neat tricks.
More than one way to skin a cat. Screwdriver, pocket knife, P38, skinning knife, rupture can on rock or with rock.
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
Concrete is flat so it would be the better choice.
It almost appears as though the concrete method takes less concentrated effort, and not much more time than a common hand operated can opener.
obvious emoji is valid..
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!
What the feck is a lone wolf doing in the woods with can goods in the first place?
