The Nogent*** Super Kim Can Opener is an ingenious design whose small size belies its usefulness. This palm sized tool can open any shape can while leaving the open edge turned in and safe.
What makes this little marvel work is a triangular tempered carbon steel blade that engages immediately as you turn the handle. The top of the can, whether it’s round, oval or even rectangular, is left with a safe, dull upper edge. The initial piercing of the can is effortless and occurs with the first turn of the bright red handle, which is cushioned for comfort. Easy to use in either the right or left hand, the can opener moves effortlessly over the edge of the can. Its petite size (3” X 2” X 1 ½”) means it takes up very little room and can be stored in a drawer. The Super Kim is also the perfect take along for a picnic, camping or in a lunch box.

I received The Nogent*** Super Kim Can Opener and was intrigued by this little manual can opener. I have a traditional electric can opener but don’t really care for the way it leaves rough edges around the can when I use it. I’m fearful that my daughters will cut themselves when opening a can or even when throwing out the trash.
The Nogent*** Super Kim Can Opener is a manual can opener is a little powerhouse that works wonders. I remember using a manual can opener growing up and it was tough. Your hands had a work out just opening one little can. No problem now. Gentle, even twists of the handle open up your cans with ease…the smooth, “edge-free” result is a definite bonus! Yep, no more worries about cutting a finger. Yay!
As you can see in the pictures…it’s as easy as 1-2-3 to use. Simple place the can opener on the can, twist clockwise and round and around it goes….removing the lid is easy as well. Just twist counter clockwise and the can opener pops right off.
The Nogent*** Super Kim Can Opener would also be perfect for camping trips. It is useful to keep around in case of a black out and perfect for little hands and craft projects.
I’ve seen bigger, bulkier and more expensive can openers work in the same manner but with the size and price of the The Nogent*** Super Kim Can Opener they just don’t compare. Who would have thought so much power and perfection would come from something so tiny.
