Open a Tin Can with Your Bare Hands?

This Russian video shows how to open a tin can without a can opener.  In an emergency this could be necessary.

I don't think this will work if  you have arthritis.  Maybe it would work if a lot more time was spent bending the can back and forth.  

Placing the can on the edge of something hard like a sidewalk curb and using your foot would be easier even if not very appetizing. 


  1. John, I watched the video. And I came to conclusion that I am not strong enough to open this way a can. I wouldn't even try to do this. I prefer can opener. It was fun to read and watch a video!!!

    1. I'm glad you liked it Kaya. The man looks a lot stronger than I am. A can opener is the best way!

  2. I won't be able to do it ! strange people :-)


I enjoy reading your comments.
I'll visit your blog.
