The can opener is a sharp wedge. It has a sharp point or blade that is forced into and through the metal of the top of a can. In the manual kind, a lever (handle) is attached, and we can move the lever to pierce the can. We then push the lever back, move the wedge, and apply pressure again. In electric or mechanical can openers, we start with lever action to pierce the can. Then a moving drive forces the opener along the edge of the can and the wheel cuts the metal. A motor applies torque to the drive, or we apply torque with the hand to turn the drive and force the cutter along the rim of the can. The cutter is a moving wedge forced through the metal to split it apart.
