    I am tired of these cheap can openers that have trouble with the modern thin steel cans.My leatherman pocket tool has an old style hawk bill can opener that works great.Does anyone know where to get one for the kitchen drawer?My wife has asked me to fix three of the butterfly handle cheapo's now,its getting ridiculous.I checked Leahmans site, no luck.I cant be the only one with this problem. -DHK

    Well.. don't have a source for an old fashioned can opened.. sorry.. but here are a couple of the better ones out there most likely:

    I had a zyliss for years. I haven't tried this newer one, but I sure liked the one we had.

    There is also a Kitchenaid one that gets pretty good reviews:

    Good luck! And if you find what you are looking for, let us know!
