Use #38 for a Pocket Knife: Fix a Sharp Metal Edge

pocket knife coffee defense

I drink latte’s in the morning and that involves opening cans of espresso coffee with a can opener. A side effect of opening the can with my manual can opener is that the very end of the metal edge gets bent up exposing a sharp metal edge. Seemingly not very dangerous this edge can catch and slice your hand/finger as you scoop espresso from the bottom of the can.

I grabbed my pocket knife and used the can opener/flat head tool to push down the metal edge of the can minimizing the chance of my catching my hand or finger.
