Made from cast iron, consisting of a sharp sickle at one end and a handle at the other, this common household instrument is used to pry open metal/tin cans.
A can opener is used by dragging it over a closed can to open it so the contents can be consumed. While cans of food can be opened by using other instruments. By the dedicated can opener you do not lose any of the food contained in the can, which makes it the best option to open up cans.
While the can opener can be used as a melee weapon, it does only a small amount of damage compared to other melee weapons such as the Firefighter Axe. However, it may be useful for killing Zombies if no other weapons are available. It does more damage than fists alone but unless there is absolutely no other choice it is advised to avoid using it in combat.
