    Used my new Dragonfly 2 Salt to open two letter packets, four document bundles and two boxes with office books.



    Then since I had the camera out, took a staged photo of my fave Dragonflies.

    There was a service certificate that had to be presented to a colleague and it came in a sealed envelope which I cut open with my Dragonfly. My boss said "I should have known that you will have something like that on your self".

    Later in the day, I had to print some forms and cut the excess paper along the border. We don't have a paper guillotine at office and again, the Dragonfly came to the rescue.

    After collecting my M390 Millie from customs, I used my Para2 to cut up the USPS box the knife came in.

    Today was just great!

    Today the Para 2 cut about 25 IBP Beef cardboard boxes. This stuff is just about 1/4" thick. I hate to say it but I almost feel letdown. Cut the first 4 or 5 just great but after that I had to really work to cut them open. On the last box of the day I had to make a sawing motion to cut it. I'm gonna touch it up tonight and give her another try tomorrow. Anybody reccomend a good angle for excessive cardboard cutting?

    So far today i have used my gayle bradley for breakfast(scrambled eggs and bacon on toast), my orange mili to strip coaxial cable and cut about 15 cable ties, my waved rescue 93mm for off hand cable tie cutting while holding onto a ridgecap on a roof, and my old school mirror polished moran to open an antenna bag and to cut my steak sandwich. And the day is only half over!

    Used my SS Endura to cut up a few boxes for disposal.

    Used the Sharpmaker to sharpen the Endura afterwards.

    My M390 Para 2 cut up a bunch of strawberries for some fresh strawberry pie. After putting it all together, I decided that it needed a few more, so I pulled my ZDP Stretch out of my other pocket to finish the job. Oh yeah, even my orange Ladybug got in on the strawberry slicing action at one point. It's not often that I use all three knives I'm carrying each day.

    Used mine to cut polystyrine early in the day, cut some firewook, and trim twigs and fair sized brances from a tree overhanging my grandparents shed

    I ate a Pomegranate.



    The S30V steel seems to have a cleaner surface where it's metal sliced through the fruit.

    Used my Rock Schempp to cut up some fresh pineapple. While the knife performed admirably, the pineapple ended up not being that great.

    I used my Gayle Bradley to open my iPad 3, my wife used her purple ladybug to open hers
    You should never have to ask yourself "do i really need another knife?" The answer is obvious...

    Used my M390 Millie to cut cardboard for making a paintball target. Also cut some prunes, a peach and an apple for lunch.

    Later I cut an orange into wedges for my daughter. I find the Millies longer blade great for food (and fruit) prep.

    I had to open a bag of tootsie rolls for my grandson. Ok, ok, I ate some too. I grabbed my Chaparral out of my pocket but it wasn't up to the chore. So I went for the heavy artilary and used the Gayle Bradley. The bag had no chance.

    It actually took me a few views to figure out that you had stabbed the Spaghetti can with your Para2. Nearly had a heart attack.
