I used my Native5 to cut up a cardboard banana crate so that it would fit in the recycling bin. Fun! :D

Went to work this morning and opened several other packages with my SB Caly. Come midday, tried to slice a tomato and failed. Now the blade won't even cut straight through paper. The original edge has gone and I have a dulled blade.

So transferred the knife to my left pocket where I also keep my phone. Whilst seated at my desk, I got a call on the mobile. Stretched my left leg and and my left arm dived into my pocket to grab the phone. Felt a sharp sting close to my knuckles and had to yank my hand back. Whilst my hand was diving into my pocket, the SB Caly blade with its tip up in the handle has bitten the skin above my pinky. It was not a deep cut but the blade drew first blood. Mine that is.

Of all the stupid things that can happen, being cut by a folded blade, feel very embarrassed right now.

Yesterday I cut the seal of my tobacco poach with my jigged bone Kiwi and later that day I used my Ambitious to open some mail.
At the evening my son used the Abitious to cut a loose thread from his jeans.

I used my Native Lightweight to open the mail which included the package with my new UK Pen Knife. LOL
I then used my new UK Pen Knife to cut pieces of Grace Ice and Water Shield.
I enjoyed using it so much that I ordered the Native 5 to go with it.
Thanks,

I used my PM2 to open boxes and cut tape. Then I used my SE H1 Tasman to cut through an orange on my lunch break.

I used my Camo Para2 to open my new Gayle Bradley. The reviews are very accurate. The lock is NO JOKE and takes some practice to get comfortable disengaging it.

Today used PM2 to trim cured primer blobs in dado corners of some railing posts I am making, prior to finish painting them. Removed foil seal on gallon of washer fluid for wife's car. That is all I remember today.

I used my Ladybug Salt to open up a package that came in the mail (Some paracord), used my Delica 4 to open a popsicle for my mom, also used both to cut some of the paracord, Ladybug Salt broke down some drink boxes, and a cardboard box, yesterday I used my ladybug to cut down some dead weeds that where in the way after I dug up a PVC pipe I had buried 2 years ago to allow water to drain out of the sunflower row. (It was full of mud),..... Oh and the occasional cutting of paper :D .
