    I used my EDC flashlight on my keys to see behind a tv as I was switching out an HDMI cable. That counts, I think, but it looks like this is more of a EDC knife thread, huh?

    Used my Maratac AA stainless steel model a few days ago to check my car for bird-poop, at night. There's a proper method to cleaning that stuff off without scratching up your paint job. That little AA light came in very handy.

    On friday I used my PockeTool X piranha to scrap the dead grass from the bottom of my push mower deck.[​IMG][​IMG] It was a little small to losen or fully tighten the bolt holding the blade on but it did work great for spinning it out and back in it just needed a bigger wrench to snug it up.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Misplaced my keys today, spent far too long searching for them before the words Turn off the lights and I'll glow by Vanilla Ice came to mind. Turned off the lights in the room and was able to find the keys in no time thanks to the tritium marker.

    I have a glass bottle coke with my lunch nearly every day, so my Vic Cadet or Farmer gets use for the bottle opener.

    I used the blade on my Leatherman Wave to cut some foam insulation the other day and the pliers to remove nails from a couple pieces of siding that I was replacing.

    Used my Buck 379 Solo penknife to cut jute twine this morning. Latch that holds my driver's side door closed fell off, couldn't close the door. Driving home last night wasn't fun. By the Grace of God, I made it. Garaged parking spot that I share with about 40 of my neighbors. Used the twine, my Vic Spartan, S.S. Maratac AA model on high and medium modes, bit of duct tape, and a mini zip-tie to rig the door closed while sitting in the passenger's seat. Braided twine from the driver's side door pull to the base of the shifter. Worked well. This morning, I cut off the twine and drove to the dealership while holding the door closed. Fixed, covered under warranty.

    Went to the 42nd Street Oyster bar with my wife to listen to a band play-friend of hers is the drummer. Place is dark [[and loud. :D ]] so e go to look at the menu-oopsy. Too dark so I whipped out my ET P20A2. set it to low and perused the menu. :)

    I used my homemade FAK I keep in my car to patch up a friend after a bad cut. What surprised me the most was how seemingly unprepared he was when it comes to this sort of stuff. Unfortunately, I think this is probably the norm for most folks. You'd think that every household would have at least one fairly decent first aid kit...

    I used my Cold Steel Vanquero to cut down some small tree's hiding behind my AC unit it dispatched them with ease.;)[​IMG] [​IMG]
    I put my PockeTool X Piranha to work on some fence bolt's it worked good but I did go get a crescent wrench because it was to small of a tool to get the leverage I needed.

    I also used the flat head screwdriver on my Wenger Backpacker to remove and replace the air filter on my mower.[​IMG]
    It was a fun day off doing yard work. Now I'm taking it eazy for the rest of the night.:)

    Went to a new barber today. Yeah . . . picked the wrong one. The end result was excellent, but he was unprofessional as Hell.

    Also, there was a ton of loose, tiny, bits of hair on my head and neck. Out came the Wet-Ones travel wipes I normally EDC. Ironically, the most versatile item I EDC. (Yes, even more so than my Swiss Army knife.) The 15 count had already been opened. (Their newer 20 count packets are just too thick for pants pockets.) Used a few of them as improvised towels. They got the job done well.
