    I had to eat dinner at my desk tonight, so an Old Cross Pioneer was pressed into service. DB54E934-EC1A-452C-BD16-280B397D9BFD.jpeg

    Serrated Recruit helped out at work: the large blade taking no prisoners with weeds too stubborn to be pulled from the ground.

    Later, to cut open a packet of mezzelune for dinner.

    Tweezers to pull out a hair, nail file to grind down a jagged nail, awl to clean nails, main blade to cut jerky, small blade to cut faces in cardboard as masks for the kids, corkscrew as a fidget toy and probably some other uses I've forgot. My SAK's get a lot of use during the day.

    Yesterday, the large SD helped to clean another knife's blade well, the file smoothed a ragged thumbnail, the corkscrew easily loosened an impossible knot in a tennis shoe, the blade sliced open a package and at the end of the day the bottle opener popped the cap off a tasty refreshment. A typical day for my Vic Sportsman.

    Beautiful pic Dan! Looks like it's time to go to work.
    "WEEDSEEKER 2. It has some very smart technology that detects plants passing under it and only sprays 4 inches before and after the plant."
    As a former technician in a new product development lab I find your smart sprayer quite interesting. Stay safe mate.

    Used the corkscrew to pull out a plug of dried up silicone from the applicator tube thingy, had to redo a window sealant before the rain starts. Corkscrew doesn't get enough appreciation. Pokey thing, fidget toy, untying knots, lifting can tabs when you've just cut your nails, used as a corkscrew like in the example above, etc. I find lots of uses for it!

    I've been busy this week working all hours to get liquid Gypsum out before a significant rain event that is hours away. My usual work companion, my Huntsman, has been working overtime too opening lids and cutting security seals on 1000 litre IBCs. It does it no fuss. A quick rinse each load and back in my pocket.[​IMG]

    My kamikaze classic and i had a fairly busy weekend. Fixed the pantry door at my house( loose hinge), then went to my parents to watch the TN-AL game. As soon as the game was over, mom said their bedroom door wouldnt shut all the way, and if we men wanted proper food it needed to get fixed. Needless to say the door came off. Pulled out the classic, pried the hinge pins out, and was preparing to whittle away the guilty wood when i caught my dad looking at me like I was crazy.
    Dad: You're not gonna fix it with that knife?
    Me: You don't think i can do it?
    Dad: I dont doubt you can do it, but suppers almost ready and im not eating it cold.
    Cant argue with that kind of logic. Fixed it with my Opinel(since it was in my pocket), put the door back up and ate some excellent pot roast.

    Today I used my sak to show staff an Australian scorpion. Relatively harmless, but not a pleasant experience to be stung by one.

    The corkscrew picked out one of my boys socks out of the vacuum cleaner head.
