Sometimes you wonder when you might ever use some of the tools in a Leatherman. For me, there was no better example of this issue than with the can opener on the Rebar. It had been a long morning working on the farm when I settled down for a can of Pepper and Lime flavoured tuna.

As fate would have it, the ring on the can snapped before I could reach the tuna. Stuck in the middle of nowhere with nothing but my Leatherman, I realised I had the perfect opportunity to use the mythical can opener on my Leatherman. It took an embarrassing amount of attempts before I worked out how it should be used. Nevertheless, the can of tuna was opened and the day was saved. Leatherman – saving lunches since ’83.
