A good, solid and well-made version of the famous GI can opener. These Gelert openers really are superior. Stiff, plated steel which will not bend out of shape easily like some lesser versions. The slightly increased length - necessary for the bottle opener lower end - provides a better grip, improved leverage and ease of use. The spike part of the opener is sharp and hard and pierces and cuts very well. Poor quality versions, which may cost the same or a little less, won't last and might not even do properly what they are meant to do from new. If you use these for the outdoors, as I do, you can't afford to be unable to eat when you need to. I bought this twin pack as backups - in case of loss - for a pair that have opened dozens of cans so far without any depreciation in performance or appearance. Faultless. WATCH my VIDEO to see how quick and easy it is to use this opener.
