churchkey   16

The Grammarphobia Blog: Grammar, Usage, Etymology, and More: The unchurchly church key
Cassell’s Dictionary of Slang says the term “church key” originated in the US in the 1950s. The dictionary suggests that the implement was called a “church key” because the can-opening part resembled an old-fashioned key.
