GENUINE COLD WAR VINTAGE BULGARIAN ARMY ISSUE FOLDING POCKET CAN OPENER

BIGGER THAN A P51 – CAN BE USED AS AN EMERGENCY SPOON

SUPERB SURVIVAL KIT TIN OPENER – BARGAIN SET OF 2 OPENERS

NEW-OLD-STOCK - UNUSED BUT MAY HAVE SURFACE PATINA

 

For sale here are pacls of TWO genuine Cold War vintage Bulgarian Army pocket can openers, as issued to Bulgarian forces alongside their tinned ration packs.

These Bulgarian items are amongst the best quality that I have seen from the Warsaw Pact forces, they are far better quality than the comparable Polish and Russian openers, furthermore they are a unique design and not just a poor-mans rip off od the US P38 and P51 openers!

Measuring approximately 7.5cm long and 2cm at their widest point, (2.75" x 0.75"inches), these are one of the largest military issue pocket tin openers as you can see for yourself in the last phot that shows one alongside a US P38 & P51.

The long length provides extra leverage making these easier to use whilst the flared wide end means you can use these openers as a spoon to stir your food and drinks and if needs be to even eat your meal with! The openers are flat and they are not as big as a spoon so they only offer a rudimentary 'eating iron' capability but it is a lot better than having to use your fingers or a twig, (You have to remember that the Bulgarian military would have eaten similar rations to their Russian brothers in arms which consisted of cans of assorted meat pastes and products)!

CONDITION PLEASE READ: All openers are new-old stock they are unissued and have been stored in protective oil, however they are several decades old and as a result they may show signs of surface patina as you can see from the photos, if you can really be bothered this should rub off with the help of some metal polish. The scratches that you might notice on the openers in the photos are not from use or storage but are simply how they came from the factory and must have been a result of the production process.

Selling at a bargain buy-it-now price which is cheaper than a pair of hideous Chinese 'camping' tin openers, a great addition to your survival kit or emergency prepping stores!

POSTAGE:  P&P is charged at cost, these have to be posted as a Large Letter!
