Hi everyone!
Just got this old Tinker. (80's maybe ?) :dunno:
I was looking for a squared phillips sak but I did not know the head was splitted for can opening.
Cool feature!

I learned about the Phillips slotted can opener here on the SAK forum.

Nice pic!!  :cheers:
Are those heads more easy to damage or break?

 :dunno: Not for sure on breakage...while looking for them, I have only seen one or two broken out of maybe 75 that I have seen on eBay.

Nice find!  I have a Master Craftsman with the split head Philips head.  Still would love to find a tin to use it on :dd:

I've used my can key Tinker Philips now for a while ( couple years  :dunno: ) with no issues to speak of.

I suspect the pin and liners are still the weakest point!

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Most canned hams.  Sure they come with their own can key, but you don't have to use it.
