can openers

I have been replacing all my plastic with stainless steel when I have found can. I just about have it all sorted out now. But I just made an exception. Do you see the one labeled C? That is not stainless steel.

A) Your normal modern can opener. You can get these anywhere and they typically work good enough until, eventually, the rubber handles fall off.

B) Stainless steel but this belongs in your camping gear, not in your kitchen. Using this in your kitchen will make you hate life because of its non-ergonomic fell.

C) Mid-20th century cast aluminium that is lightweight, large and very comfortable in the hand. Paid $3.50 at a thrift store. It will outlive me.
