    They are cool, each for a different reason. Mine is called an Esky because it was made for a knife company in Escanaba, Michigan (my home state). The people from Escanaba call themselves Eskys. It's a nice town and a great knife to represent them. :)

    I used my huntsman to remove the cap off the fuel tap assembly so I could clean out a small screen thats in there.

    I've just used my newly acquired Spartan Wood to slice frozen ginger.

    I don't normally use my pocket knives for food prep at home as my kitchen knives are generally better for the task. But the 91mm blade is perfect for the job above, and I use no other.

    Used tinkers large blade to open some strawberry feriltiser , and the large screwdriver to ease the plastic sheet back into the greenhouse frame ( fingers bleed a lot less that way ).
    After cleaning it, used large blade to open a packet of fish and slice up for coconut curry dinner

    I used my tourist to tighten the battery terminals on my camping power pack.

    I did that yesterday with my new Vic 580 nail clipper knife. :D

    I used my small tinker to open mail, packages, cut the seal on some cat treats, dig out some wild violets in my yard, cut the end off a case of canned Coke, and a number of other little tasks in the last 24 hours. Normally I would not suggest digging with a SAK but for me it is often the only knife I have with me when I'm out in the yard cruising around.

    I repaired a torn finger nail with the file on my Money Clip. The sandpaper file that came with the Money Clip was replaced with a real (cut) file. image.jpeg

    I used the can opener to remove the lense retaining bracket off my welding helmet so I could clean my lenses

    This morning I used the scissors on my Compact to prune kitchen herbs to keep them full. I do it once a week or so. The 91mm snippers are perfect for the job.

    My son said his tractor was broken so he needed my "swiss-n-narmy" knife to fix it... Apparently dad just touches things with his knife and it's fixed :)

    It must be the mystical qualities of the Swiss Army Knife in red Alox ... in the right hands. :^)

    Ja used the straight pin from my SAK to replace the strap of my watch. To bad most army knives have the hole but dont come with the straight pin for some reason.
