    So far today, I've used the can opener on my Pioneer to remove a staple from a stack of paper that wasn't properly stapled.

    Is using a spyderco dragonfly (orange) overkill for removing the plastic wrapper on an altoids tin? Cause I just did that.

    Personally I would have used way more knife, so, no, I don't think that was overkill.

    If I were Luke, I'd use my light saber to take the wrapper off an altoids.

    I used my LM Wave pliers to cut a piece of steel strapping, I had to do it in 3 cuts to get it done but the Wave handled it.

    Used some duct tape to repair my backpack and used the CRKT Folts Minimalist to remove a couple staples.

    Used my new Swisschamp that came today to strip and crimp a ground wire for my car, and to tear down some boxes for the garbage. New tools always mean I get way more productive for a few days :)

    Had to cut up some old linoleum flooring that was keeping a dust barrier from sealing around a water heater, letting dust bunnies clog the air intake..

    Gerber LST to cut slits in a garbage bag that was placed over my Work/Get Home bag. Used the LST so I could pull the straps through and toss my bag on my shoulders. Raining for 2 or 3 days straight. Hate using up so many garbage bags. And much of the time end up carrying my bag in one hand. Very tiring. I only know of only one bag made with a built in rain-cover that allows the shoulder straps to still be used. I need a new bag.... Looks like my decision is a no-brainer. That one High Sierra pack.

    Found out early this morning that a tail-light bulb was burnt out as the family was piling in the car. Had a spare in the garage so used my EDC light and Gerber Dime to aid in a quick replacement.

    Used the TOPS Mountain Lion to trim some bushes, the Manix 2 to get a splinter out of my hand, and the Minimalist to cut some strings.

    Used my prybar to take off the caps-lock key on my apple aluminum keyboard, and then my gerber dime's tweezers, to take the cr@p out from under there, to unstick that key. Serious survival stuff going on here...
