As of this morning, I've already used my SwissChamp for the following: Worked on some wall trim that wasn't quite cut to fit near a drawer. It had to be cut out to allow the kitchen cabinet drawer drawer to clear it, but not enough. I've been cutting a lot of it away, but used the chisel this time. I was surprised at how well it worked, especially on a 20 year old secondhand SwissChamp. Used the saw to cut some notches into the deflector of the riding lawnmower deck. My grandfather likes to keep it up; and uses two rubber tie-downs to do so, but it slips off. I'd put two in the left side last season, but needed to put some on the right today. Cut weed eater string with the scissors. Sharpened the ends of the line with the pen blade. The head I put on my FS38 is a quick-load one, and according to the service rep, sharpening the ends makes them slot inside to lock into place better before spooling it inside the weed eater.
That SwissChamp is getting a workout today!
Great use! And that's why nail guns freak me out, even though I use them all the time. We've been using finish nailers modelling house, and I've handled that thing with more caution than a loaded firearm. On another note, I'm surprised they don't make a big fuss over MTs at the hospital you work at. The two main hospitals here have signs everywhere against carrying a pocketknife, even at the outpatient/doctor's offices run by them. One clinic (which my grandmother's doctor is in) is extra sneaky in that they put the sign "NO WEAPONS OF ANY KIND" inside the main entrance. I've got to the point that if I'm belt carrying, and waiting on my folks at that doctor, and i have to use the restroom, I just go to the fast food restaurant a mile down the road. At least my doctor, who runs his own office, really doesn't care; whether it be some guy concealed carrying; or me unloading my EDC when I get weighed.
At least some tins still need a manual opener!
On my Outrider: Blade a bunch of cutting stuff. Saw, used it to cut a dead tree branch so I could roll up some electric fencing wire we often use as a measuring tool. OC Pioneer: Blade: Cut some Vet-Wrap
Good use of the can opener Max! I love using the Vic Can opener!
Great uses Kraken
This morning I was thinking about the new MiniChamp I got in the mail yesterday and what I could use the cut and picker blade for.
On my very first day of carrying my mint red OC Farmer, a coworker need help opening a can of peaches at work. It must be fate because I don't think I've needed to open a can in years. I was more than happy to oblige, especially since the Vic style can opener is the only one I can manage to use without spending an hour fiddling and cutting myself. The job took seconds.My Farmer's first knife duty was to cut the paracord I needed to give it a proper fob.It's been a good day thus far.
