I'm thinking Cricket PE and Almite Copilot. Well, I gotta go open a present or two. :)

- best wishes, Jazz.

Leatherman Skeletool. Used it to cut tape and boxes, cut those pesky wire twisties, unscrew the battery holders, etc.

Well ironically enough I've been using a SAK all morning since it has a screwdriver in it for taking the battery doors off toys to put batteries in them. Go figure. Oh well, save the edge on my Spydies :D

Decided to use my g10 delica this morning. Went through packaging, tape and cable ties for the kid's presents no problem.

Started out using my Grey PM2, but passing it around to cut all the tape was not good. Switched to my forest green Jester for the remainder.

Started opening with my zdp ladybug, but it felt a tad to small switched to my GB after a while.

Gave a black Salt 1 to my brother for xmas, his first premium (non-kitchen) knife :)

Currently carrying a Dragonfly 2. Opens just about everything like a hot knife thru butter. Good tidings to all.

Change my mind from earlier post. Used G10 Dfly and Urban to open gifts. Wonderful to use a sharp Spydie on clamshell packaging - like a hot knife through butter!!

Going up to my brothers and taking my Chaparral - good size, good slicer, some nice FFG for the Christmas dinner event.

Hope all you guys got some good stuff and are enjoying the day.

Even though you can see a hairline scratch she did REAL good this year!

I used my CF Stretch...cut some tape and a couple of zip-ties and ended up with about 4 nice chips in the ZDP-189 blade! Not a good choice!!

Delica 4, SS, SE. The doll packages were diabolical this year. Good thing I had my secret weapon! Good thing for my brother too. He kept borrowing it.
