Way to go Spydergirl! Nothing better than bringing an old knife back to life!

Didn't feel like waiting around for the battery to charge on the cordless driver. Decided to use some good ole fashion manual labor on a few screws to this crate!

I don't know how to embed videos but here is an interesting SAK hard use test video from YouTube. This guy does things with his Vic that I would hesitate to do with my Spyderco Military! Shows how tough these knives truly are.

I agree! This is exactly the type of video I want to understand the speaker. There are so many knife-related vids I CAN understand that drone on and on without actually doing anything with the knife. :)

Nice Alox!
They’re tiny but lovely little knives Barry. :)

None of the women in our family have overly long fingernails as such but my daughter tore one playing with here little boy on the weekend while I was there. That got me to thinking so I bought three of the little Classic to gift my daughter, daughter-in-law and beloved wife so should they tear or break a fingernail they can do running repairs. :rolleyes:

Working a double today to fill in for our stockroom guy during a machine outage...hour 16 and counting :o

But...I did get a call from an electrician requesting 25ft of wire, decided to put the SAK to use (admittedly had to YouTube how to properly use the wire stripper) but it was very easy and worked like a charm!

They're great in that way Bloke. I've known people who, when they fly, will buy one at their destination and use it. When they go to leave, they'll donate it to someone. My wife is a diehard Classic fan. She has had the same one for 40 years on her keychain, and combined with a keychain tool, won't carry anything else.
