That's MTo calendar material Vadim!
Along with this gorgeous Minichamp I got a corkscrew for my Spirit.Question: How the heck am I supposed not to lose this thing?
Question: How the heck am I supposed not to lose this thing?
Dah-dah! Problem solved!
These joined the family:(Image removed from quote.)
So the postman did me another great favour and gave me a BLACK SPIRIT! Hoorah!My joy was tainted a bit by the staggering amount of gunk on the pliers - I know these black ones tend to be grimy but this was kind of yucky to be honest - like they were smeared with a layer of earwax.Even after rubbing down with lighter fluid that area of the pliers looks like crap... which is a bit of a shame. Such a beautiful tool otherwise.Oh yeah, this is the one with scissors. The first time I've played with these.Blimey! Those scissors really aren't very good are they! I think I'd prefer to have the serrated blade. Nevermind - I now have two Spirits, the black and the silver, with scissors and without. That's enough expensive toys for the moment.
Oh, and I really like the scissors. Granted, they're rubbish for trimming your nails, but as utility mini-snips, they're great.
Really,How many times did someone grab the scissors from their Spirit and said "oh no, these won't work" grabbed the scissors from a 91mm next and did the job effortlesly?And if this ever happened, what cutting job was it?
I think I was shocked that they don't open very far but in reality this shouldn't be a hindrance. I wasn't planning on chopping through wads of paper anyway.I suppose the perfect sidekick to this particular Spirit would be a black [by which I mean Blackout] OH serrated Sentinel with a corkscrew on it. Which doesn't exist (does it?)
For just simply cutting rope and stuff the Spirit scissors are excellent. But for detailed cutting (like along a drawn line on a piece of paper) is where I find the 91mm scissors (and most scissors at that) to be perfect...
