    Lol. :) Isnt that the proper tool? Years ago our grandfathers used slipjoints for that task...I’m guessing and hoping a sebenza can handle it. :D

    To be honest with you, this is no problem for a CRK blade. No scratches or other problems if you puncture directly into the can (no prying with the tip).

    I know we discuss HRC a lot in these threads, and this particular 21 would be a “soft” Sebenza from the old 58HRC days, however, I think the tuna can itself is unhardened steel that is like 20HRC or something, so the Sebenza goes into it like butter, with no adverse consequence I can detect.

    I wonder if that was for you, or a furry friend? Either way, I'll bet the knife survived in good shape... i carry a Leatherman too, I would be more afraid of hurting myself than the CRK.(Klutzy)

    Hah. Yes. Can’t open a tuna can without my dog coming running. She can hear it from 10 miles.

    I was thinking the same thing. My first sebenza was a small 21 that I bought new in 2009. I was 18 at the time and carried it everyday for years. It was used for many tasks like this because it was what I had on me. The way it handled cutting a variety of materials that I thought might hurt it without any damage was one of the many reasons why I fell in love with the sebenza. It's just a great do it all knife.

    You'll might even hone it a bit as the softer steel of the can glides perfectly alligned to the edge(and tip) of the blade!

    Well, let me be your tester. Rest assured, if your life depended on it, and you were starving, and you came across a bunker full of canned food, and all you had was a Sebenza, you would eat like a King.
