    Last night I started to feel like I was developing a cold. I took some Aspirin just before bedtime, etc. In the morning, I made myself some ginger root + hot water tea. Turns out the blue Manix Lightweight with plain edge is just perfect for slicing ginger, and the choil also gives you great control to peel it!

    Used my edc DLC Para 2 to slice open bags of cheese to make lasagna I also minced some garlic for some Rosemary garlic bread I baked, then sprinkled on some parm cheese. Turned out good.

    Also sliced up a bunch of parchment paper and broke down some cardboard. Boring stuff.

    Today I used my Tenacious to make feather sticks to start the bonfire we got going. Sharpened a couple of sticks for marshmallows to. Also cut up some cardboard boxes to toss onto the fire after it was roaring.

    Visited the beach, vegetable market and then the hair salon. Had my SS Endura in my pocket the entire time. Only used it to open a bag of cashew nuts which I ate whilst walking along the beach.

    I chased a spider on the wall with my d2 para after my gf sent me to mince it, but i let it escape for fear of spider karma cursing my blade.

    Used my woodcraft mule to debark an old tree branch to make another walkingstick. It is very comfortable in the hand and the choil on this fixed blade allows great control. Now I know why they made it.

    Are you using steel shot for your shotgun?

    Used my new Military to open a zipfizz. So much quicker than spending a minute trying to tear the plastic with my fingernails

    Chuck, yes here we have to use non toxic shot when hunting waterfowl. I pattered BlackCloud 2 3/4" 3-shot for ducks and 3" BB for goose using an Improved Cylinder choke in my 870.

    My surprise of the day: SpyderEdge on my Dragonfly Salt is actually very good for peeling veggies (in my case, a cucumber I had for breakfast). I was expecting a lot more difficulties, but it went real well and smooth.

    Today I used my Delica PE to unclog our vacuum's brushes. It was FULL of my wife's long hair. About 3 year's worth. Hair, by the way, is strong, and doesn't easily cut. And yes the knife was sharp. It was difficult getting the knife's edge perpendicular to the tension on the hair, as the hair was wrapped tightly around the brushes.

    Looking back, a serrated edge may have faired better. Scissors probably would have worked even better, but then I wouldn't have been able to use my Delica. I'll try a SE in three years when I remember to unclog the vac's brushes and then scissors in 6. I'll post my results.

    It's funny, I did the same thing today. I had thoughts of using a serrated edge and did but it didn't work any better. I went from a Native to a Rescue, but ended up using scissors. I love my Spydies but for this task the scissors reigned supreme.

    thog94, that is funny. Here I was thinking that what I was doing was rather rare. Little did I know, it wasn't that rare after all. Good to know about the scissors. I'll skip the SE and go straight to them next time. Here's to a clean house during the hurricane. I hope NH fares well for you.
