P-38 Tool of the Week
The P-38 or the John Wayne as we referred to it in the Marine Corps.
This little can opener probably the greatest invention the military ever had.
Originally designed for and distributed in the K-ration, and later included in the C-ration. Still in production today and sold on the worldwide market.
I can remember using these back in my early Marine Corps days. I still carry one on my key chain to this day. Just like that card never leave home without it.
A larger version called the P-51 is somewhat easier to use. The handle part can also double as a makeshift flat-blade screwdriver, with limited ability because of the rather soft sheet metal used.
You can find them at most military surplus stores or camping and outdoor stores I have even picked one up at the Salvation Army store. Amazon has both the P-38 and P-51 as a set for $2.99 and free shipping.
