Halacha - used keilim
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: I received a used corkscrew/blade/bottle cap opener. Does it need to be toiveled? Are there any kashrus concerns with using it? (I assume the blade (knife) should not be used).
Answer:

It is not necessary to toivel a corkscrew or can opener, since they are not intended to come in direct contact with the food. Since it is unlikely that either was used on hot food or soaked in liquid for 24 hours, it is not necessary to do more then clean them well. The blade may not be used even cold unless it is kashered properly.
