The TRU-SPEC P-38 Can Opener is a small and compact tool designed for military personnel and outdoor enthusiasts who need a reliable and durable can opener for their survival and emergency kits.

Its simple and effective design features a small blade and a hook that can easily pierce through metal can lids, allowing you to open canned foods and drinks quickly and effortlessly.

In addition to its practical use, the TRU-SPEC P-38 Can Opener has a rich history that dates back to World War II, where it was issued to soldiers as a standard part of their field rations. Since then, it has become a symbol of military preparedness and resilience, and many veterans and survivalists still swear by its effectiveness and reliability.

Overall, the TRU-SPEC P-38 Can Opener is a timeless and essential tool that every adventurer, camper, or prepper should have in their gear collection. Its simplicity, durability, and functionality make it an indispensable tool for any situation where opening a can is necessary.

The 5ive Star Gear® Can Openers are an exact copy of the originals that were first developed in 1942. They are a small can opener that was issued in the canned field rations of the United States Armed Forces from World War II to the 1980s. Originally designed for and distributed in the K-ration, it was later included in the C-ration. They make a great addition to any camping trip or survival bug-out bag.

It works! I had one 40+ years ago, and it never failed me. Modern can openers begin to corrode within a few months in my high humidity state of residence, so I'm reverting back to a P-38.

On time, on target

Exactly what I had ordered and exactly what I had expected. Got more than I planned on and have nothing but good things to say about how fast they arrived. Obviously Mad City comes through as highly recommended.

Marie Gardner

Works just as good as the one in the "Nam".
