I bought this unused retro National can opener from a lovely couple who had been stationed in Japan while the husband was working for SAA. They had collected everything Japanese from classic tea bowls to cooler retro items like this fabulous can opener, much of which they’d never used! I love the colour of this can opener, the fact that it’s a National, and that it’s battery operated – no messy cords lying on your kitchen counter! Ordinarily I’d be a bit wary of a battery-operated appliance, but because it’s a solid make I don’t really think there’s anything to worry about – and just to make sure we gave it a whirl and it worked just fine!
Note: The can opener takes four D batteries (the big ones)
