As a can opener I prefer the Wenger version- as a screwdriver, I prefer the Victorinox!Def
Exactly!Wenger is somewhat better than Vic at opening cans.Again, this is opinion, NOT fact, we've covered thisChoose Vic if you want/need:-a small screwdriver.Phillips screwdriverscraperhook for carrying paint cans wire bendersmall pry barplus it cuts, smashes and dices!!! Choose Wenger if you want/need:-a short, semi-hooked cutting blade.-a scraper.-a scribe.-a short awl.
OK here we go again, I'm glad you like the Wenger but contrary to what you think the Vic can opener is a wonderful "all around tool" also. It's not just a can opener and a screwdriver. And it'll open cans just as fast.
Maybe someone can do a video to settle once and for all, what's fastest

I've been using the Vic can opener for about 25 years, so I'm well practiced with it. I've only used a Wenger 3 or 4 times in that period. I've seen videos of people ripping through a can very quickly with a P-38, but it takes twice as long for me to use a P-38 over a Vic.I also don't necessarily think fastest is synonymous with best.
The Vic one is fairly smooth, as you mention. The Vic combo tool leaves a more jagged edge.

I dont think a flat out race to the nearest second is the best idea ( I'd better bring the first aid kit ) . The difference between some brands could be minutes I sh*t you not .Dunc
The P-38 is faster than the can openers on MTs because that's what the P38 was designed for.
