Use a piece of drinking straw. They work quite well for that. :cheers:

Hultafors 108 is a nice little one - apart from prying (excellent for boxes and cans), I use it for dragging out nails, adjusting heights by stepping on it, scraping, and so on. Stronger than it looks.

Edit: I seem to have replied to something way early in the thread. Oh well.  :dunno:

My Toolbox is ready to go. 

I had to take my Leatherman Crater out since the carabiner is a bottle opener.  I replaced it with an inexpensive Buck Knife I recently purchased because I wanted a decent, inexpensive knife to use on hard jobs where I wouldn't want to damage or lose a more expensive one.

That will be nice, but in a month we'll be looking forward to replacing the whole kit with a MT.  :rofl:

After careful compilation and sorting of data, I have found that I use the following tools most frequently:
-blade
-scissors
-screwdriver
-pliers

So I'm going to give that kit a go, possibly minus the scissors because I really can't find any around the house that I want to carry.

Scissors and a Phillips #2 are a must for me. Possibly a blade, so I only included that tiny Sanrenmu, and I like the Knipex stuff so much that I included a bunch. :D

Replacing the Rambler on my keychain is taking 3 items and even then no scissors, T&T or nail file…however all dedicated tools which should do a better and if not better then as good a job you’d hope.… :think: :dunno:

The blade on the Bomber B2 is sharp and useful although the handle’s a bit small, still it should be a good rambler replacement for the challenge along with the bottle opener and Vic Quattro SD

I’m good either way so no worries whatever’s decided :tu:

I’ve the small SD bit and some larger one piece keychain SD’s as alternatives and will be carrying the Stanley in a maxpedition pouch. Decided against the picquic for now as I don’t want to carry it everywhere

I’m interested in how well I’d go just using the keychain tools and a blade…blade still to be decided

Is that rust on those key-drivers?
I got a pair of those way back before I joined this forum (and it kind of led to me joining actually), and they looked really terrible even a few weeks on my keys. Fair enough, I guess the steel is not exactly top tier.

Here will be some of the different bits of gear I will have in January :woohoo:

I am.still undecided about which pair of scissors of these 2 I will carry :think: one of these is from a Swisscard and the other is a set out of a SAK that I took apart for parts :D

I will rotate between the 2 screwdrivers  :tu: each have plus and minuses but I like both of them equally :like: they are Zapwizard handles with Leatherman Ratchet Drivers in each  :tu:

I will carry both the Craftsman Adjustable wrench and the Christy Knife daily (I may also carry a Gerber EAB for rougher cutting tasks) :cheers: Possible swap traditional pocket knives in and oit during the month as well :think:

I will carry the Knipex Cobra 6 inch water pump pliers and or the knipex needle nose pliers :think:

So what think you guys :ahhh

Yep rust but not very bad, more like pitting RP, I’ve had them many years as well

Think I’ll live without them though, not really adding anything over the Stanley and a bit bulky

I am seeing some nice kits!  :like:

I will finalize my kits tomorrow. I have 2 Nite Ize Pock-its, so I think I will fix up an at-home kit in addition to my at-work kit. The real problem I will have with that is I only have 1 Knipex 5" Cobra and only 1 Klein mini ratchet. So they will have to be shared between the 2 kits.
