    I went for a lunchtime walk today and encountered some branches that were hanging low over the sidewalk.

    Luckily I had my 550-1 Griptilian on hand and I whittled them off.

    This was just one of many branches trimmed.

    Asking the real questions. Haha

    I ream pipes with the edge as well. Unless theres a swedge then tend to use that.

    I’ve never reamed copper pipe, only plastic. I use the edge also. I like the idea with the swedge tho. Insingo should work pretty good with that.

    When deburring (not reaming) the inside of a pipe, you don't need to slice off anything, so why blunt your edge scraping when you can just use a corner of the spine and not blunt anything?

    Electricians used to use a flat screwdriver for doing this. It's not precision work. But hey, if you want to chip or roll your edge at the tip needlessly, go right ahead! ;-)

    If I’m reaming EMT I use my reamer screwdriver, file, channel locks, or the fin on the backside of a tubing cutter. I’ve got a reamer bit that goes on a drill also. Saves your hands and wrists if your running EMT all day for weeks. If it’s rigid I use a file.

    As far as plastic pvc goes I can deburr with my finger. Not all cuts are perfect and sometimes the conduit isn’t smooth. I’ll take my knife and chamfer the edge to make a smooth transition for wire to pull across. Most of the time it’s done pretty easily, not always tho.

    Rolling an edge is something that just happens with a daily working knife and I don’t get too concerned about it. I haven’t used a razor (utility) knife in years. I could strip wire with my stripping knife or hawkbill but I don’t. Most cardboard I could just rip up with my hands. Most packages I open I could use a screwdriver or keys. I could cut zip ties with my side cutters (and do most of the time if they’re on me). Almost everything I use my knife for I could use something else, but I’m always looking for an excuse to use mine. I’ve cut small branches out of the way before also, and I’ve just snapped and twisted them before as well.
