I thought I'd put my Spirit S through it's paces helping my neighbor making some repairs to his gutter downspout,Phillips worked well on some screws,and the pliers worked great on fixing a jammed pop riveter.BTW,my neighbor is retired from the maintenance dept of a steel mill,and has and knows tools galore,and very highly impressed with the Victorinox quality.

I used the deadly tactical blade on my Zilla Jr. to take down a hostile apple in close quarter battle.  It was brutal but, in the end...rather...tasty...    :P

Fixed a loose screw on my glasses with the small jewelers screwdriver on my new LM Pulse.

Actually used the belt cutter/hook-a-majig on my Charge TTi to cut some offending twine that was holding down rebar in the bed of my truck. I was surprised by how effortlessly it cut through the twine. Wish I knew where my tie-downs were.

Up until now, the only time I used it was to fish something out of a crack somewhere. Don't recall what it was, though.

The dedicated slotted driver also helped me get a SAK keyring through the lanyard hole of my H1 Ladybug. My fingernails weren't quite up to the task.

Used the Surge to draw blood.  And not my own...

Had to use it to pull a tick off myself this evening, and to dispatch the cretinous little arachnid.  Little  :rant:

Fixed a bed rail on a bed at work.  It was bent and coming out so I used the pliers of my Pulse to bend it back into position then used the screwdriver to put it back in.  Whoo Hoo...real life test for the new Pulse.

So far just opening a tin of paint with the large flathead on my paratool - there will be more today, I'm sure!  ::)

This happened last weekend, but...

I was at a crafts/book fair walking around and some old lady approached me and asked if I had anything to open the bottle she just bought...I think it was iced tea or something..anyways I said "sure" and opened it with my McKinley SAK.  Out of hundreds of people I guess I looked like the guy to have a bottle opener :think:

Used my spirit to gently cut the string holding an 8 foot diameter ballon so that we could all inhale the helium inside.

It lasted a good long while and I'm still crying with laughter now :D

Ok. hit another bottle of wine with the Juice XE6. This cork was in a bit tighter and I truly struggled with the flimsy corkscrew, and assist was much less helpful than the last time. Felt like something was gonna break: bottle rim or the juice. After some struggles I got it out, but have to downgrade my previous rating to:
 
Rating for task:  4 out of 10

Used my MINI to open a bottle of beer.  The odd built-into-the-handle bottle opener worked really well.

Then I used it to open another bottle...  just to confirm my results :D

I used my Spirit to tighten the screws holding the globe that goes over the lightbulb on our kitchen ceiling fan. It worked great except for the drivers slipping so much.  :D :D :D

No wait, that's right. It performed perfectly w/o any slipping on what were pretty crappy screws.

The only thing my Pulse got used for today was to trim a drinking straw down to size for my daughter and to remove the shop tags from a new pair of trousers.  Will the excitement never end!  :ahhh  ::)
