Title: Huntsman saves the day.......
Post by: stealth007s on September 09, 2013, 10:06:05 PM
The mrs was opening (well trying to) a couple cans of beans an Rotel tomatoes and the handle snapped off the opener. She immediately asked our youngest to run to the store and get a new can opener. She then told me she would have to wait to make dinner and I was like :think: Why don't you just use my Swiss Army Knife? It has a can opener in it. She proceeded to use it, stabbing the can :facepalm: I then took it from her and finished the work.

I then used the main blade to cut a cigar to smoke for my cool down routine from the gym and all that can opening work. :rofl:

So how has your Huntsman saved the day for you?

This is hardly even fair. The Huntsman can do basically anything.

Vicky currently lives in my silverware drawer. It's the primary can opener, bottle opener, and corkscrew in my new apartment.

Good to hear how our MT.o heroine is doing these days.  :D

I still use that knife as an example when people say the 91s are dinky, fragile toys.   :rofl:

The Huntsman can do basically anything.

I wouldn't say anything.  A friend of mine parked his car one evening and when he returned to his car, the lot was closed with a chain across the driveway. He used the metal saw in his SAK to cut the chain.

Not quite "saved the day" But in one day- main blade- one letter, one cord; scissors 2x, philips on the opener and the mounted eyeglass sd 1x.
Now the entire job comes to me! Thanks Vic.....

I got the pics to prove it, too! Today's EDC, with a traditional pattada folder. It even has a little pouch, so as not to get scratched.

My first "real" pocket knife was a Huntsman. I got it from my dad when I was about 8 years old and we made holidays in Switzerland. I stil know it as it would have been yesterday.

I was a young lad and with this tool I was the King of the playground as I had a saw... a real working saw... we did what boys do and I got older and the Huntsman is still on my side. Then I had to go to German Army - Mountainman - in Berchtesgaden and I got a GAK. I was so happy with it. After my time in the Army I bought a used GAK - but no beaten one - and it followed me as well for a long long time.

Today the Huntsman is sitting in its drawer, cleaned, sharpened and well oiled.

It also saved my day for several occassions and moments. Great memory.
