P-38 Military Can Opener - one the most thoughtful military inventions. GREAT COOKING UTENSIL
The P-38 is known as a "John Wayne" by the United States Marine Corps, either because of its toughness and dependability or because of an unsubstantiated story that the actor had been shown in an as-yet-unidentified training film opening a can of K-Rations. The can opener is pocket-sized, approximately 1.5 inches (38 mm) long, and consists of a short metal blade that serves as a handle, 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.
Can also be used as a screw driver, cutting tool, weapons cleaning tool, a bottle opener
The P-38 is smaller and lighter to carry. The device can be easily attached to a key chain or dog tag chain using the small punched hole.
