    PPT to chop green onions, slice chicken meat, break down several boxes, open a couple of blister paks, and to cut the tip off a tube of caulk.

    Laying around after having foot surgery on Friday. Feeling totally useless and looking for something to cut up I saw an extra large pizza box that would not fit into our kitchen trash can. Crutched on over and used my Para 2 and turned it into 30 small pieces of smelly cardboard. Now I feel better.

    I just cup up a lot of the usual today...corrugated boxes.

    A random tip for you box cutter guys out there, try slicing at a 45 degree angle through sheets....it's a lot easier than going at it straight in at 90 degrees. It allows the board to spread apart easier than if you slice through it straight. Try it sometime...the difference is like going from a dull knife to a sharp knife.

    Hope you recover soon and back to using your Spyderco's as usual soon. Take care.

    It's 5am for me. My daughter wanted to stick a Pokemon figure on a pencil she takes to school. So cut away the top of a HB pencil to slide on the Pokemon using my SB Caly. She was so happy that she asked me to do the same for her two back up pencils. She's seven now.

    Edc-ed the trusty PPT today. Cut some greenlee string at work. Broke down some light fixture boxes. Opened a package of meat and broke down the box of rotini. The faithful PPT was brought out of retirement and my new lansky kit gave her a face lift. The lansky was my Xmas gift to myself.

    Today i literally planed the top of a door in my house with my Paramilitary. It's been rubbing for a while now and i got sick of it. I don't own a wood plane so this was the next best/sharp thing. It was pretty hard work trying to shave such thin slices but it worked out nicely.

    PPT vs DHL package

    Used my PPT to open up a DHL package. Found that the blade shape is excellent when slicing the outer pack without damaging the bag inside.



    Notice the clean cut

    I used my PPT to cut the skin of my right foot toe yesterday and did not report it. So, yes, it counts. As long as the blade performed well, its all good

    Used the spine of my FRN ZDP189 Stretch to scratch away the cover over a code on a gift card.

    Today my Delica 4 SE cut some hard plastic cable protector at my workplace.
    Right after that I sliced a sheet of paper with it just to amuse my colleague.
