If you're left handed (like me) you will, the blade on my knife pull my fingers into the can edge as I lever it.
Well you learn summat every day...I had no idea those knives were RH, I thought they were symmetrical. I'd always wondered why they were so fecking difficult to use.
I'd didn't until I looked AFTER slicing myself. Open the blade out and look down at it into the cutout, it's not symmetrical. Therein is the problem :?

Use a long-handled brush for washing out cans.

Interesting - we haven't been to the recycling centre for four months - but there's only about a dozen cans in the box. In fact, I'm struggling to remember what was in the cans, we buy so few.

It could double-up...

Or you could make your own.
