The Bull’s Head Bully Beef Can Tin Opener was adopted by the United States Army during the American Civil War (1861–1865).

However, its unprotected knife-like sickle was too dangerous for domestic use.

A home-use opener named the “Bull’s head opener” was designed in 1865 and was supplied with cans

of pickled beef named “Bully beef”.
