I have had a P-38 on my key chain since the seventies and I have used it countless times for countless tasks. As others have reported, I too have got my finger stuck when reaching for my keys, but I see that as an acceptable collateral damage for all the valuable uses it provides while taking up little little space.
FYI. Since I have owned mine from enlistment, I have had my P-38 confiscated (Post 9/11) twice at airports. It just depends which airport you pass through. In each case, I paid postage to have it mailed back to my residence. That's how much I value my P-38..

got the 10 and 5, less the fire starter.

As someone who's had to use them more than a few times...
there's a reason why there's a full size can opener in my earthquake supplies.

Ahhh, brings back memories of Basic Training and Field Duty.
Here's a 2 pack- P38 and P51 for $2 w/FS

Honestly, I think the tiny P38 works just about as well as the P51 for a lot less bulk and weight.... and every year there are fewer cans that require an opener anyway.
