About: love Macguyvering things and music

this kit is packed with only stuff I've found myself without and needed on a frequent basis,
as a guy that wouldn't be caught dead without a swiss army on me or within arms reach I decided to make this so I would always have them , I would recommend either leaving this in your car, jacket,purse,or cargo pants cause it's an altiods tin and is bulky

    The small military can opener is called a P-38 or a John Wayne. The larger model is called the P-51. I always have one with me, since my days in the US Army.

    P-38 is the name of the can opener. It should also be on your keyring.

    I have matches in mine, if u use Strike anywhere, u can waterproof them by dipping the head in wax & wipe it off when ready to use. Also, u could add picture wire for snares. U can waterproof the entire tin by wrapping it w/ electrical tape, as long as the hinges are covered.

    Actually I think the can opener is a P38. At least that's what it was called when I was in the service.

    Looks nice! Only thing I would add is a micro-Bic, or some other small lighter. They come in handy, even as a non smoker. Oh, the can opener? Looks like a P38, the small one. It's got a bigger brother, the P51, if I remember correctly.
