Wow! Comprehensive. I always use a Vic SAK can opener wherever I need a can opened. Once the technique is mastered (doesn't take long) you can do a quick clean job and will trust no others.
Amazing write-up! Thank you for taking the time to organize, plan, and test all of these!Do any of you have a general preference for the blade facing inward or outward of the hook?
Excellent testing RP
That looks a nasty cut on that can I wonder if any metal bits fell in the can
You made that cut look quite expert. I'm impressed by the even and smooth cuts.
Very well done. I am a fan of the Victorinox can opener and use them often enough. Some cans do have the pull tab but a good many dont. I like the forward style vs Wenger style opening. Its probably familiarity. I must have tried the LM opener but nothing negative or positive comes to mind. I am certainly happier using the Vic opener for now.
Juice0 points for punching through. The piercing point is blunt and not at the best angle to punch through. 1 for comfort. The edges dig into my hands, and so does the corkscrew. This is the old design, so maybe now it's better?2 for not jamming.2 for cutting. 2 for not slipping. Total: 7(Image removed from quote.)
