Always remember that this following techniques must be performed by an adult with a great care and children should not try this one at home

Method 1: Concrete and a rock (or knife). This is probably the most old school way and most likely to be your only option if you are out camping in the woods with only rocks around.

Method 2: Using a bread knife. It means that it is serrated and really requires care that you do not hurt yourself or spill everything onto the floor. Be mindful that this method could be hazardous and that you might get injured; take some extra care.

Method 3: Hammer and chisel. Again, you will want to be extra careful with this that you do not hurt yourself or spill all the contents onto the floor. There is a possibility that you might accidentally hit a bad angle that could hurt yourself. So do it gently with great care.

Method 4: Pocket knife. Some pocket knives are made with a can opener attachment. These are not always as easy to use as a regular can opener, but in a pinch will get the trick done.
