Save your fingers! This cassette opener works better than your standard bottle or can opener, and takes up barely any space in the changing bag.

If you develop 35mm film this tool really works to make opening the cassette so much easier and quicker. It is heavy duty and well made. Worth every penny saving you time and trouble.

Super worth buying

I HATED developing 35mm film before buying this as I found opening canister to be the biggest hassle. This makes it trivial! A tad pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

Simple. Works.

I've been developing my own film for about two years, and I'd used a bottle-opener to open my film cassettes until recently. It was HARD. I bloodied my fingers in my dark bag just about every other time. I decided to shell out the cash for this Ilford opener, which seemed a bit pricey, to be honest, but it was 100% worth it. Opening the cassettes is easier given the double lid grips, and the handle is long enough to give good leverage. Durable product that should last years and years---or until I misplace it! I'd certainly recommend it to those who struggle at home like I did.

Works like a charm

Asked by: Molly
120 film is not in a canister. It is in paper and you seal it with tape when the roll is complete.
