Came home tonight and had to make dinner for myself and my offspring. I couldn't find the godamned can opener for the carrots, so I decided to improvise. The TOPS ALRT is not as good as the regular can opener, but it sure as hell works faster than a P-38. The kiridashi style knife has what is essentially a tanto-point, only it's double ground instead of a chisel grind.
Worked like a charm!
