    I did not have to do it but I went ahead and did it anyway.

    Had two burgers for lunch. My Caly3.5 helped me out.

    A Madrasi Beef Burger:



    Chili Chicken Cheese Burger:


    BTW, I was not focusing on the burgers. There's a nice patina forming now.

    I used my newly acquired M390 Para 2 (with factory edge and bevel) to slice half a giant cardboard box into small slivers (approximately 750-800 cuts). Then I pulled out my XHP Manix 2 that I've reprofiled to 30 (no secondary bevel) to finish off the other half of the box (also 750-800 cuts). Boy was I tired by the end. I had always wondered why people would have such small piles of cardboard after cutting up boxes. I thought it seemed like they didn't cut much. Well, after doing it myself, I now realize just how much work it is and how much the box shrinks when reduced to slivers. Cutting that much cardboard also destroys an edge pretty well.

    Well, once the blades dull, I know you're gonna have more fun getting that edge back

    A faucet broke off inside the fitting and no plumbers are available today. So I made a wooden plug with my GB to plug it as a makeshift until a plumber comes. Bad thing is, I hit a nail.

    After 30 minutes on the brown rods, there's just a tiny compression or chip left. That will sharpen out after a few sharpenings.

    Yesterday my SS Cricket/SE helped me to "modify" some pieces of fireworks of my 15 year old son

    Started out with my Delica/SE AUS8 gen 1, but soon switched over to my Cricket.

    Man, what a great utility blade that is

    Used my Manix 80mm to open a 20lb bag of bird feed. What an overkill. I could open a Soviet tank with this dang thing.

    I cut up a roast for dinner with my Mule Team 7. It made everything taste better!

    I used my Manix XL to chop up jalapenos, serranos, habaneros, cilantro, a lime, and tomatoes to make guacamole. Also some lettuce for fajitas... No not ridiculous at all...
    Cheers!

    I think I have you all beat
    The collection held the drawer they currently live in; in place. And my Terzuola served as a display in my office on the desk in front of my screen

    I did not have to use any today, but I usually rotate through them to open mail this past week, along with some presents

    It slices, it dices, it....... stirs coffee?!?

    I used my PM2 to stir some sugar into my coffee at the office this morning. We were out of stir sticks, but the mighty PM2 sliced that coffee with ease.

    Yep it's pretty much the lamest way that I've used a knife but it did the job.

    It sure did come in handy during Christmas. Many packages opened with my trusty edc.

    I had 105 diaries and desktop calendars which were packaged in bundles of ten with brown paper and sticky tape. Used my Caly3.5 SB to take everything out of their packaging and prep for distribution.

    Knife is still cutting as if new.
