    I used my MT1 fixed blade to dig out some plants in very rocky ground. I washed and dried it afterwards, and it's back on the shelf now. :)
    Oh, my wife broke the zipper pull of one of her body warmers. I put on a split ring that came with the mini D developers kit, and added a matching color plastic pull tab, also from that kit. :)

    The other day I recieved a very well awaited package.
    Used the LighterBro to open it.
    Also been using the Fenix PD35, Brous MT, and Manix 2 daily.
    The SpyderWrench has also been seeing a lot of use.

    Last night I went to a live walkthrough Nativity with some friends. It was about 40 degrees fahrenheit and wet. Upon arrival it began to pour down rain, and guess who the only guy was with a rain coat and water resistant shoes. :rofl: Hour and a half later I remained the only person in our group to have dry body and feet. The lesson learned was look at the weather before going somewhere outside.

    It's a sleeve that fits over a standard Bic and it has a blade, 000 screwdriver (very small eyeglass screwdriver), scissors, and a bottle opener. Incredibly well made tool for the price. I highly recommend it.

    Aunt Rita needed a knife to open a box and everyone looked around at me. :D EDCF Manix2 to the rescue:)

    Also let my BiL use the small jeweler's slotted driver I keep screwed into the corkscrew of my SwissChamp, and then later the inline phillips...both dealing with his son's toys :)
    Oh yeah, used my SRT7 to shed some light on the tiny screws he was working with.

    The Cold Steel Mini Tuff Lite opened many boxes and Xbox game cases today.

    My Minigriptillian helped me check the london broils on the grillladt night for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner. It also cut open the netting around the turkey today.

    Olight S20 also helped out with the grillling last night.

    Leatherman Phillips screwdriver came in handy to open up a few battery bays on toys for the boy.

    My Leatherman Surge has seen a lot of work the past few days, Cutting open tape and boxes. Using the screwdriver bit for the kids toys that needed batteries, younger brothers needed help putting together bicycles, used the pliers to tighten plenty of nuts.

    Family gatherings are your usual "Hey Rusty, can I borrow your knife?" :rofl:

    I had several uses for the few tools I took with me on vacation. IPhone was used extensively for photos, Leatherman style PS scissors were used for loose strings and general small cutting duty, Lights were used to manouver around the room in the dark for Santa to do his job, and the most unusual use was for my Atwood Tombstone. My daughter locked herself in a bathroom stall and my wife ran out frantic. After checking to see if it was ok for me to go in and help, I pulled out the tombstone and used the wrench cutouts to open the door. Saved the day for my daughter.
