Useful in survival kits. Pocket-sized and consists of a short metal blade that serves as a handle (which doubles as a flat-blade screwdriver), with a small, hinged metal tooth that folds out to pierce the can lid. A notch just under the hinge point keeps the opener hooked around the rim of the can as the device is "walked" around to cut the lid out. The tiny, lightweight, P-51 (2 inches in length) collapsible can opener was developed during World War II. The origin of the name is not clear.  Whatever the case, It is clear tho that this little device has to be considered one of the most perfect inventions ever designed for use in combat. The P-51 (51mm in length) is the big brother to the P-38 Can Opener. It was designed in the 1980s as the big brother to open #10 cans and the large 36 soldier meal pack or T-Packs.
