    This is my first post in the multi tool sub forum, I used my small tinker's pry bar to unlatch my bathroom door. Time to pull apart the latch for a replacement...

    That appears slightly risky :p. Has victorinox come out with an auto pilot tool?

    Since he’s in Australia I’m guessing his better half is doing the pilotingo_O

    I got to use my Recruit today to fix a 2 hole punch that was jammed up. Sorry there were no photos, but I told my co-worker that jammed it up she should send a video to Victorinox for me:D

    I said to my wife yesterday that the photo would have Americans wondering. We have driven 2000km so far, on our adventure so I'm kinda wish my Swiss army knife could do a bit of driving at the end of the day[​IMG]

    I had kind of assumed he wasn't in the US... Crocodile Dundee comes to mind :D. Hopefully the Mrs is a smooth driver.

    My nails are often too short to pull up the tab on a tab top can, so I use the multi tool on my bantam, which is always nearby. I even devised a way to thread the tool through the tab and pop the can open using the extra leverage it provides. This works best with the extremely thin Alox Bantam, my favorite SAK.

    Those little firesteels are crazy expensive. I'd thought about buying a pack but I don't want to give up the space on a knife. Besides, I've got so many larger sizes that I've resisted the temptation...so far, anyway. ;)

    I used my Super Tinker screwdriver to remove and clean my filter in my shop vac.

    The only measuring device I had handy this morning was the millimeter scale engraved on the fish scaler of my SwissChamp and it helped me identify a small SAK I now know to be a Classic. Until I came to The Blade Forum I just used the SAK my hunting buddy left for me. As many a SAK owners know, they are like rabbits and seem to multiply all by themselves and sometimes you don't even know their names. Now I need to get one for the wife's key ring.

    Well done. I was lucky enough to be given one of those fire steels by generous mate.
    A great invention.

    Yeah, when you look at what you get for the price it doesn’t make much sense....but neither does owning more than 1 or 2 pocketknives:confused:

    They are neat. I don’t have them in every SAK, only the ones I would take when headed into the outdoors and the ones in each vehicle. I bought a fire pit for my daughters first house. Last night was the first fire so I thought why not try it out.

    My SAK SwissChamp was nearby when I needed a knife blade to cut off the clear plastic heat shrink wrap on a flat of bottled drinking water I picked up a couple of days ago. Gosh, I didn't know anyone bought a SAK to actually utilize one of the knife blades? It worked as advertised!
