Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent can manual opener? Seems the only we can get to last more than a couple months is the one on my Swiss Army knife

Very frustrating

Hit the thrift stores in your area (or Ebay) and look for the older Swing-A-Way openers that were made in USA. They are made in China now and are OK, but not as good as the old ones.

There's a new type on the market that pulls the lid off at the seam. They're pretty good, IMO.

Are those the ones that leave a razor sharp edge on the can?

Well, yeah. You can slice your pinky halfway off on the edge of the top removed the old way or the edge of the can itself. Take your pick.

These....

Other plain jane types just shread metal in one place under the rim from the drive wheel.

Or the cutter wheel decides when and how much of the lid it wants to cut

Or a combo of both depending on what angle its fussy little azz needs ta be held.

The state of can openers is a pet peeve of mine. Admittedly most cans are pull top but in today's world where almost anything is possible why are can openers in general POS? The swing away is good and some of the early designs were the best.

Mine is still doing ok, but the cans now are so thin they buckle and bend. No wonder so many dented up vegetable cans now days.
