Why the whispers?  I still use my church key (worked real nice on the cans 
of evaporated milk for the pumpkin pies).  I still use my P-38 can opener, 
but it's usually on the wrong key ring when I need it.  Both of those are 
30+ years old.

In the past two weeks, I've gotten rid of one electric and three manual 
(modern) can openers that couldn't do the job.
