    used my latest acquisition to disassemble a two-piece office cabinet
    ...
    OK, it is a Buck Twin Peaks with a locking screwdriver, so I was not abusing the blade or anything :)))
    but I gotta tell you, that screwdriver is mighty effective on this little tool, is slightly angled to the handle (as are both the main blade and the secondary wharnie blade), making this a super-ergonomical non-tactical item - here's a happy customer of PoorFish @ the 'Bay :)

    I used my pro-tech folder to remove dried glue, open packages of drawer slides, and open mail

    Forgot my spoon for lunch so the CRKT M16 got used, very carefully as a spoon.

    Straya,
    You must have been starving!
    Glad you were very careful.

    I opened my mail, cut some zip ties, opened a few boxes and cleaned my thumbnail with my CRKT M1603Z.

    Not long ago,I sent a EOD Breacher's Bar to DahlKen,a fine lanyard maker ( a member here,but ran into him on BladeForum).
    He said he'd sharpen it for me,and put on a Safety Lanyard he developed @ my insistence...he was finishing it on the paper wheels when it cost him seven stitches,back his of left (dominant) hand...which was a bummer,because he makes & sells really fine lanyards!
    His remark to me was classic: "When we tinker with the Sharp & Pointy Things, it's not a matter of IF, but WHEN."

    I used mine today to cu a 3 inch strap that got stuck and wouldn't budge.

    I blame it on the Italian DNA that got mixed in (AO stiletto knives are less dangerous), & the great pressure of having to be perfect because of my moderative title on here... I'm jesting, a few cuts here/there is normal for even a professional cook. Also BTW I really am part Italian.

    Rev. Chuck,
    Will try to post a picture of the Breacher's Bar project,but only ones I have were posted by Thom (DahlKen) on BladeForum...not sure I know how!Can send links,I think...
    I didn't have him reshape it any; just sharpen the blade section.
    He made the 'handle' & Safety Lanyard out of continuous pieces of paracord,so there's about 35' total 'cord,if ever needed.
    And after he finished it,he put me in touch with azwelke,who made the Kydex sheath...excellent fit.
    Here goes my attempt:

    (Quotation from DahlKen):
    'Here is a few teasers of an EOD breacher Bar done with a Strider style wrap with an adjustable "Gnarly Safety Retention Lanyard" incorporated in black cord over Orange reflective 550 with a decorative sinnet of black/orange and black GITD 550. The plain Gnarly Safety Retention lanyards with no skulls are going to be $10. The example below with full handle wrap and lanyard would be $17. Skulls can be added in your choice and will have pics of available ones up later.'

    Hope that helps,Rev. Chuck.
    DahlKen is a disabled Navy veteran,a gentleman & a scholar,and does amazing paracord work.
    When I have more time,I'll start a separate thread w/ pix of the multiple lanyards & odd projects he's made for me.

    In the short time I've had the sharpened bar back home,I've used it at least a dozen times.Kindling for fires,trimming limbs around deerstands,and once the chisel end: to pry off a stuck PTO union on a BushHog.

    So far: no injuries!

    Rev.Chuck,

    I pestered DahlKen to make me several Safety lanyards for Tools I Don't Wanta Drop!
    Like any tool used,while leaning out of a treestand,or from a boat,or on a ladder.
    As GRIFFINHAWKS will verify,stageriggers must have empty pockets before the long climb up to the grid...any tools used must be tethered to you! ,because you're ~80'+ above the stage,in most venues.
    A tool dropped from that height (ex.: 10" Crescent Wrench) can be deadly falling objects.
    Since I've never been accused of being graceful....some of the lessons learned in Stagecraft have followed me since.

    The 'loop' on the end of the Safety Retention Lanyards are adjustable and can be snugged around the wrist.I have a half-dozen,in various reflective/GITD colors,for knives,folding saws,a 10" Crescent Wrench,and the Breacher's Bar.

    DahlKen was likely amused by my (multiple) strange requests,and named that one the 'Gnarly Safety Retention Lanyard'.

    And in about one week,I'll use my knife to open another box (4th or 5th one!) of lanyards.

    How's that,for getting back to the thread? OP,please excuse my ramblings!

    ~Gnarly
