    Tin openers ?? anyone got one that actually opens a tin ??

    After buying around 10 tin openers of different designs over the last 5 years I still dont have one that opens a tin , it begins but never finishes the job ,, so I have to do it the Thai way with a cleaver which TBH is extremely dangerous ,, well it is with me doing it.


    Please either post up some brand names or better still some pictures of a POXY TIN OPENER THAT WORKS !!!

    Sorry about that rant ,,,,, I cant find the plasters
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    I either but tins with a ring pull or I use a camping style tin opener, the old fashioned style with no moving parts.

    ^ Go to Robinson or Central - they have similar there.

    Just don't buy cheap chinese crap - they always break because the cogs are made of plasticine painted metallic silver.

    I can confirm.... this one, the P-38 works, always. Nicked mine from the personal outfit in that lovely green duffle bag, somewhere early 70s*. There's also a slighty bigger variety, the P-51. Handy because they're always lost in the drawers.



    * Still looking over my shoulder though, you'd to pay for the missing items...

    Edit: Dillinger beat me to it.

    My dad used to nick loads, he would always come back off exercise with tins and tins of "compo". the oatmeal biscuits were nice although you could easily break your teeth on one, chocolate and sweets

    yes, we also had this stuff at home... my father worked in construction of baracks in europe at some time...

    i remember the tin openers, they are very good...
    we also had one, which wouldnt leave sharp edges...

    no english, and every tin was a surprise... the coconut tins were rare, but awesome...
    the cookies were good, too...
    my brother liked the fucking peanut butter...

    don't use them then - just because it has a key, does not mean you have to use them. An ordinary tin opener will work as well.
