    We all EDC pocket knives -- but I am wondering what was the last thing you pulled your knife out to cut?

    I'll start -- I cut a paracord to make a lanyard.

    I've cut a rope for my son's balloon.
    Otherwise I use my knife on job to cut things like EVA foam, rawhide or a thread at the sewing machine (the scissor there is for the show only).

    What folding knife did you use to cut onions? Personally I reach for the big kitchen knives when doing most food prep.

    A large square hay bale. I do it about twice a week. I must use a blade to cut something about 50x per day. That, and a pair of scissors (on a knife of course).

    For me, a knife truly is an indispensable tool. I can't go outside without one!

    With my pocket knife - several packages came in the mail yesterday. So cutting packing tape on the outer boxes, cutting tape, plastic pouches, and box tops on the contents of the big box and of the other boxes / mailing pouches. Today, used my wife's pocket knife (because it was nearby) to cut through the plastic rings on 8-bottle packs of cokes to create several 4-bottle packs - they fit in the fridge easier that way. In doing that I noticed her knife was not sharp and that the edge was chewed up, so I sharpened it for her.

    Extra thick ribeyes on a wooden board, grill side. We were outside away from the kitchen. I would normally used my Opinel no 10 for food, but left my bag in the car. ZT 303 put up a good show for the crowd.
