    I used the small inline screw driver to nip up a screw on my camera tripod.

    The Camper helped reattach wires on my garage door opener after accidentally yanking them out.

    My ‘92 Dutch Soldier had a busy week at my job. Amongst the usual box and letter opening it was called upon to open two family sized cans of Campbell’s Tomato Soup for a group lunch and took the handle off of a cupboard door to remove the Formica laminate that came unglued.

    I'm doing some canvas work and instead of walking down to the shed to get a tape I used the ruler on my Champ to measure 150mm.

    I used a hide I tanned from a kangaroo and made a strop. I used a Victorinox Standard to cut trim the edges after gluing.

    I'm cutting packages open today, full of bolts and bits for a lift pump I'm assembling

    My young fella and myself were looking at knives and he asked if I could peel him an apple with my Apple knife.[​IMG]
    I couldn't say no.

    I used the bottle opener to scrape dirt out of a groove the battery cover sits in on my tractor.

    This afternoon I pulled the serrated Recruit from my back pocket to cut the dead leaves off a cabbage tree at home. The serrated blade excels at cutting fibrous materials. This is why I have both a Recruit and Spartan with this blade: among other things, I deal with the likes of cabbage trees (Cordyline australis) and flax (Phormium spp.) at work.

    I have been touching up my blade on the long runs spraying tonight. So I used my knife to open a packet of chips. Totally unnecessary but hey why not :)

    Nothing overly difficult, but used the small blade to do some trimming on a rubber mat.

    Interesting. I’ve never heard of that. Stupid question - are those green walnuts?

    Yes just as the walnuts start to form there shell inside the green husk it's time to pick and use the walnuts to make liquor. The cut up green fruit is soaked in vodka for 3 months with a mix of spices and sugar. The liquid is drained and bottled, then stored for a further 12 months to mellow. So March 2022 we will have 6 litres (1-1/2 gallons) of walnut liquor to drink o_O:);).
    It's a bit of a traditional drink my wife's family make in Europe.
    I'm not a drinker but I enjoy watching people's reactions before and after a good dose of the dark brown liquid.
    Dan.
