    Today was a sharpening day, so I've been using my collection to shave my arms and legs a little bit at a time.

    used my Kershaw Clash opening some bags of potting soil for my new tomato plants. Cost of produce being what it is, I decided to put out a container garden this year. 3 varieties tomatoes, 3 varieties peppers and 5 varieties of herbs for starters.

    Used my ZT0500 MUDD this morning to cut a sausage biscuit in half. Glad to report that no biscuit crumbs found their way past the pivot or lock seals!!

    Used my Scallion to cut open the packing tape on the USPS box containing my new Fenix PD30R5. Then to cut the plastic around the CR123A's. Then I just waited for it to get dark :)

    Popped round to my sisters house for a chinwag and was asked to make a round hole in a water butt lid for a drainpipe. Swiss Champ was on my hip and the file blade wielded perfectly...

    Today I decided to make some mundane cutting chores a lot more fun. I used my ZT350 (sanitized) to cut a lot of strawberries for my frozen yogurt shop. [​IMG]

    It worked very well as you can see. The only downside was that I had to cut carefully (my strawberry knife is not sharp it's from ikea) I did not want to get bit today :)

    Used my Boker KeyCom to open a package of mop sponge and to open a package of delicious potato pierogies.

    (No, I did not eat the sponge.)

    yeah... you can see it also barely scratched the tip of my finger :))) very close call indeed
    (I didn't even feel it cut, I just noticed suddenly there was a fingernail-clipping colored something on the cutting board LOL)

    I used my American Cutlery pocket knife to get rid of the stem on my strawberries for a snack at work, and to half a peach for a morning snack. Then I touched up the blade because I am obsessive about keeping my sharps clean an sharp.
