WTF? That is insane... probably have a few laying around under a work bench or storage locker after tossing them asside for more efficient methods of cracking these cans.

No kidding... who knew?!

No they are not worth $50, you still get them with spam cans.

https://www.sgammo.com/product/wolf-...o-spam-cans-la

And you can just buy them outright for $4.98

I throw them away. Only need one. Maybe a spare. They come with every two-can case.

I suppose I could sell all of my openers. It is not like I am shooting any of my stash anyway. And I always have a claw hammer handy if I really wanted to get in something.

I live mine in the kitchen. I bought one of those can openers with the wheel which claims to be US made and "the original" (I can look at the brand). When it does not work, the spam can one has always rose up to the occasion.

Update: checked the brand: Ez-duz-it. Never heard of. At least the stamping on the handle and on the leg the handle and cutting wheel attach to are made in USA.

Thanks for the replies and the laughs. I sold a drum on GB and I always like to throw a little something extra in the box. I surely could not bring myself to toss $50.00 LOL he may just get a P38

My last sale I tossed in a screw on new AK slant brake.
