I used my Explorer’s hook to pull pebbles out of my boot treads. It’s the perfect tool for the job.

Great idea! I usually use the awl on the 93s, but I must give that a go! :cheers:

I use the awl for crevices in my boot treads that are too tight for the hook. But the hook is great because I don’t have to worry about dulling it against a pebble.

...the hook is good for pebbles in your tire treads too.  :salute:

Very nice knife. Bantam? Did you put the serrated blade in it yourself? I love it, and the black looks great worn. More pics would be great.

My Champ came to my aid once again today while repairing battery operated Christmas decorations. Opening battery covers, raising flattened contacts and banishing corrosion. All this just using pliers, screw drivers and the file. All decorations now chirping out yuletide tunes and flashing their lights in line with millions of other decorated houses.
Merry Christmas to the world of SAK lovers.

I used the large flat driver on a sapphire Tinker to un-jam my car's seat belt release button. I keep the Tinker in the center console with the flat driver open because I normally use it to adjust the direction of a couple of the A/C vents (the handles have come off).

Used the scissors on the CT34 to snip this bit of string when putting up the Christmas tree last night. A rather Christmasy contrast of colors even if I do say so!

Holiday cheers to all  :cheers:

Pretty cool use of the S-biner as an extra grip point!

On my Spartan today, I opened a few packages with the pen blade, and I had a really small Bruder Mini (even smaller than Matchbox, and very fragile) JCB 4CX which about a week ago, fell off the shelf and the first section of the backhoe arm broke in half. I used the mini driver to remove the #0 Phillips screw so I could separate the entire backhoe assembly so I wouldn't mess up the actual vehicle when gluing the arm back together. At least I have a spare, as the lot it came in had two--that one I put back behind glass so it woudn't break.

Swapped a tip of my soldering iron yesterday plus lots of wire stripping and other duties

Nice, those pliers are super handy.

Do you use the wire stripper in the bottle opener? I was very skeptical of it but tried it the other day and was able to strip wire ends from a few different wire types and gauges without much issue at all. The thin solid core I use with breadboards strips pretty much every time on the first try without pre-cutting the insulation. I should have known better than to doubt the SAK!  8)

I used my “new” (made from a Fieldmaster and an Explorer) Woodsman’s corkscrew to un-clog a bottle of Gorilla glue. Pulled the dried glue plug right out!

Yeah, same here - used to underestimate it a lot in comparison to the one found on my LM Wave, though SAK ways turned out to be way more efficient

Ho that's interesting ! It's been a long time I haven't built anything (and most of my bench gear is stacked up somewhere) but I'll keep that in mind for the next time, thanks !  :salute:

Beer and SAKs make for great photos. I liked the SwissBucks as a kid, and sadly never got one.
