Weekend landscaping work. Still can't believe the cutting power of this little knife. It's effortless!

Used my Manbug Salt to put a nice gash in my thumb yesterday evening. :rolleyes:

That little hooked tip is mean.

Salty manbug is salty!

Used my df2 hawkbill to clean out the inner edge of some cut pvc pipe. It just slides around the inner walls spitting plastic in it's wake.

Used my little Urban wharncliffe to open a clamshell package of Flonase this morning. That little knife performs surgery on those packages effortlessly, makes me wonder just how many ER trips there is daily/yearly because of these packages, especially on Christmas day with toys!

Seriously, they are dangerous. Especially Costco's freakin' packaging. Yet, people wonder why we carry knives. :rolleyes:

I’ve gone to using scissors for blister packs. Those things are dangerous!

I like it a lot. I still haven't really used it enough to tell, but I will say that the action and fit and finish on my example is probably the best out of the Para 3's that I have. It's right up there with my BBS M390, which is still my favorite. I've just now gotten to the point where it's probably time to sharpen my Rex45 on the SM so it will be interesting to see how it touches up. If you can snag one without paying too much over MAP I would get one!

While out at the park with the dogs today I noticed a length of rope tied off in a few spots to a large piece of drift wood. Fortunately, I had the perfect tool to help clean things up. So there was no sense leaving it to be taken back out by the tide! ;)

Salt 1 took care of the plastic rope with ease!

^^I love when random opportunities like that pop up. Just an excuse to use your knife!

More yardwork of course. Manix 2 works well, but certainly not as well as the SE Salt 2

Personal validation. No, seriously.
On any given day I may or may not do much cutting.
Regardless, it’s always a good feeling to reach into my pocket and pull out a quality blade, even it only to admire it for a few seconds. Had a moment like that just as I came home today.

The last thing I used my Spyderco to CUT was a massive burrito at lunchtime. Definately hard use. The Rhino owned it. :-)

I used my Spyderco Endura 4 to make a sandwich after cutting apart some packaging material that I received a Bible and some literature in.

I bought a new T-Shirt today, and cut the neck tags off with my Manix 2.

Lol Bloke!

That blister pack stuff...I recently had to open a Double Stuff 2, and oh man was it child proofed. I used a Native 5 to surgically open it. The distal taper makes for some precise stabbing. Still a tough job and definitely ER potential.

Also used the M4 Native today to cut some light fixture wiring and prep ends for connections. The Native cuts that stuff like paracord. :spyder:

Quite a t-shirt Bloke! :D

I used my HAP40 Manbug to cut up a kiwi at lunch.
