A Dime a Day
on: July 14, 2023, 06:29:16 PM
I just got back from a week long camping trip. My 10+ year old Dime (never resharpened!) was always in my pocket.

I used it for opening a lot of food packaging, many bottle tops  :drink:, and the pliers for a variety of tasks.However the best was using the scissors to strip an old tent awning of usable clips and guy ropes.

Cutting through the synthetic webbing took about 5 scissor presses each but it handled all with ease.

I know it's not the best mini-MT out there but it is to me! :)

I think mini multitools are underrated. I do not have a Dime yet, but I bought the LM Squirt mostly as a gimmick. It has proved useful a number of times while travelling.

I just joined the Dime club! Couldn't resist a good sale at 40% off. So far really like it except the file is a joke. Otherwise everything else is useful and works well.  I love the bottle opener and the main blade.  The scissors and sprung pliers are nice too. Will see if durability is ever an issue.

Possibly you could replace that implement with sak 58mm scissors
