Watch the video to learn how and where to start spooning the can. There’s a bit of a methodology to it for an easier carve. DaveHax recommends wearing gloves to prevent getting injured. Nobody wants a severed artery. Nobody wants blood in their canned tuna. And nobody feels like getting a tetanus shot over some canned peaches. So, take his advice or at the very least have a towel or sleeve ready.
Though the reasons could be limited as to why you wouldn’t have a can opener in the first place, you can still add this tip to one of your “Just in Case” lists. Those lists might include: “Just in case a blizzard knocks out our power for days and all we have is an electric can opener”, or “Just in case the end of the world is here and we have to loot for spam and beans, but dang it, we forgot a can opener.”
There you have it folks. Never be caught with cans of scrumptious food and no way to open them, whether you’re out camping or riding out an apocalypse. If you’re faced with a choice of drinking urine, eating rodents, or ripping open a can, this might be the route you want to take. Don’t forget to add metal spoons to your doomsday bunker as a backup to a manual can opener. Remember this tip.
