Day6
Scissors
The scissors are not bad.
They almost seem based on the Wenger style, almost. Blades are plain edge and the lever spring presses on the frame's locking tab.

They are usably sharp but they have little bit of play in the pivot that keeps them from bieng 100% reliable.
A light tap on the pivot rivet woth a punch to tighten it should be enough to solve the slop. Though I am not sure it is really a priority/ necessary unless you like tight scissors.

But they do cut better than most off brands.

 :tu:
I didn't know how much I would use scissors until a year ago, I always used a blade and then I got my first SAK with them  :cheers:

Pliers: removed and then reattached the rubber tie-downs on the gate and pulled a nail. The cutters also cut some zip ties.
Phillips screwdriver: loosened up the VGA cable for the PC monitor.  Originally tried it with the slotted, but the Phillips grips better.

Great write ups today.  Funny the scissors came up.  My version does not have them and I was missing them.  My Vic scissors are one of my favorite tools and yes I had 5 pair in my EDC today but I used the TT combo blade instead.  It worked well, I just would have preferred the scissors.  Kinda spoiled like that.   :dunno: What can I say?

I'm with you Douglas, now that I'm used to having scissors on me they get a lot of use  :tu:

Day 7:

Used the file to clean up a small horn for a wood pipe that fell off. Cleaned the pipe side as well. Used some glue to attach. Filled any holes in the horn with a filler stick.






Two beauty shots.

I actually used the blade today, and I had 3 other knives (Ladybug, MiniChamp, Camillus) on me:

First was opening up some mail--turns out in my final semester of college (finished in Dec. (though technically graduated in May; as I forgot to apply for graduation until November) with a BS in management through the local college online I was on the President's List. So, I got a BS in BS.

Secondly, I removed the zip-ties on this model tractor I picked up at Tractor Supply today; since I already had it out thinking the cutters would work.  Really wish Ertl had stuck with wires. Guess the zip-ties were cheaper.

If they had advertised it as a packing tape cutter, they would have probably sold kore TTs. :) :tu:

Of course it worked. I'm always using my multi-tools to drag stuff up places I can't get to.

Int his case I just pushed the pliers into the cardboard to drag it off.

But there is another way.
Ialway figured that was why the saw and the file where in opposite handles(joking). Just spread the handles in opposite directions and then extend the saw and file.
Hold on to the file and try to hook the package with the teeth of the saw.
On most full-size multi tools that'll give you anywhere from 8-12 in of extra reach

Just don't drop and break whatever it is you're trying to get.
