Today I used my Evo16 to open several paint tint cans that had old-fashioned lids.  I also used the scissors to cut coupons for customers, the awl to drill a small hole in some wood to demonstrate a touch up product, and the large screwdriver/bottle opener as a light prybar and to open cans with pop-off lids.  Same thing my SAK gets used for every day at the store.  A lot of times my multi is in my bag as back up, and I'm glad it's there.  But the SAK sees more use than anything.  :tu:

I used my Climber to root out the foam stuff in the water cartridge of the Cigar Oasis electronic humidifier. I replaced the foam with gel stuff.

I use them every day. Today I had to sew my iPhone leather case (the strap teared off). I used a curved needle and thread I keep in my auxiliary Victorinox seath, the scissors and pruner to cut and trim the thread and the pliers to push the needle through the leather many times. For the time being I didn't have to use the magnifying lens in order to put the thread in the needle hole. Yet!

Not as exciting as some of the others, but I used my climber to open a package.

May I suggest the fish scaler tip for scratching also? It is long, double ended and safe for the skin. One can use the scaler edge for the limbs, as it covers a large area, it is ergonomic anatomically for arms and legs, has many tips providing sensory input and remains very safe.
I am serious.
