    I got tired of never being able to find flatware at work, so I snagged some Ti to throw in my bag for such occasions.

    I carry three sporks around in a Light My Fire green plastic carrier; two are LMF (one Ti the other polymer, with a third being some unknown make given to me by the better half some time ago); I have no idea what brand those chopsticks are, though - a little hint, please?

    Picked them up off of Amazon for ~$15. They were sold by finesscity. No big name manufacturer, but 5 stars w/ 260 reviews. I like them. The carrying case is a nice touch.

    Got a couple of Asian food places near work that deliver, and we eat a lot of that. I use chopsticks whenever I can. I would eat a sandwich w/ chopsticks if the laughter and derision from my coworkers didn't spoil the food.


    Oh, also got this yesterday:

    10,000 mAh powerbank, solar powered. Has a 1.0 amp and a 2.0 amp port.
    Zerolemon generally makes decent stuff, and I got it for ~$10 (had a coupon code). Seems like it will come in pretty handy.

    Received a bottle opener in the mail, a wall mount version, no screws included though. It's a bit chunky for my keychain, but I've known some folks over the years that would probably stick it on their keyring anyway, lol... :p

    I got one of these through a Copenhagen promotion. It's screwed to my work bench waiting to serve.

    An online sweepstakes/contest win. Needs some paracord love, then it'll probably end up a b-day/Christmas edc gift for a friend/family member that totes coffee around... :D

    Nice. What do you mean with "paracord love"?

    Maybe giving it a Turk's head knot wrap around the body, or a handle wrap, or a wrist/neck lanyard to attach to the clip on the handle, as the possibilities for adding some personalized knot work are just limited to the imagination... ;)

    Got a CS "Jungle" machete and a lansky puck, tried it out. Machete came "sharp" out the box which of course put me off. Tried the puck on it, what a mismatch. Freehanded the machete with the coarse-medium-fine lansky system stones and presto, what a beautiful day for gardening!
    Notched the blade on a chunk of granite, fixed it with the system and now it pops hairs and twigs with more or less the same ease! I am a very happy puppy! Angle is wiiide but edge is fine. Been thinking of nightmare grinding 1/3 of the blade to a smaller angle for a more knife-like cutting portion, we'll see.
    Even with a field-sharp edge it was pretty good, no blisters and it only almost slipped once after three hours of fun so grip is good enough (with gloves of course) but there will be no lanyard, ambidextrosity before dishonor!

    I got one of these:

    A handy little brass pocket tool with a copper bead. Another IG maker score. I know brass is soft, but this is plenty capable of any chore I'm planning on putting it through.
