    Ok, I have a tin that I am trying to get open, but it is being a real pain in the ass. I am trying to get it open without mangling it up too bad. It's a an SG rectangular tin. Any ideas? I've tried coin, pen knife.. .no luck.

    I use an old school bottle opener on stubborn tins, fits the rim perfectly.

    That's slick. This tin just had a very good seal. Didn't want to budge.

    If it doesn't budge, don't force it. Just get a bigger hammer.

    I like that bottle opener idea, small screwdriver works too.

    It's Frank Herbert's Dune. In the movie, the character above (Paul Atreides) uses a loud witchy voice to open the chest of his vanquished opponent. He yells at it.

    That's all you've got to do, AKG. Get with the program.

    It seems so obvious. How did I not make the connection sooner?

    Knife blade under the rim and lever outwards to break the vacuum.
