    The doc couldn’t find his scalpel this morning, so I loaned him my Opinel for my knee replacement.

    No pics, sorry, but I cut up a black plumb and a banana with my EDC Spyderco Native 5 and tossed them into my blender with some Milo's sweet tea and a bit of Stoli vodka. Then watched this thread :)

    I don't normally get recipes from Blade Forums but this is unique.

    As I was just looking at the photo, thinking that’s one tough blade to go through all that copper so clean...:D:D

    After just 23 degrees this morning and heavy frost, it’s turning into a warm and sunny afternoon, perfect for taking a lunchtime break outside.

    Haha. The insulation isn’t near as tough ;)

    After a full day, I just grabbed what was handy and within arms reach, a nice Tanto Edge KA-BAR. Nothing fancy, but it sure did get the job done, as all I wanted to do was sit back and relax, all while smelling and gazing at the logs burning in the fire pit. Tasty, tranquil, and mesmerizing, all rolled up into one. The burger meat is a blend of 75% Venison and 25% Pork with chunks of Sharp Cheddar & Bacon mixed into the meat prior to cooking.

    The Ladybug had fishing line and snack duty yesterday while out on the kayak. A couple nights ago at work, the wharncliffe Endura helped create 500 file folders, cutting ~460 feet of paper folder material. The factory edge still cleanly slices phone book paper.

    Yesterday I used my Medford Praetorian to cut the plastic straps holding a storage unit together so I could assemble it for my dad.

    Not an exciting story, and was over too quickly to bother with pictures, but a perfect example of an EDC task. :)

    I don't have an EDC, but I happened to have this on my hip when I realized we only had 3 chicken breasts and 5 people eating. They were too thick to begin with any way. My kitchen knives weren't up to the task, but the 119 was a pleasure.

    This morning I sliced open my granola bar and used the can opener to pop the ring pull up on my coke, my finger nails are all too short right now. I did some other stuff but I can't remember what. It's like asking when I used my phone, I use it all the time to the extent that it's almost subconscious. A couple of days ago I had a temporary tarp roof on the balcony blown loose in gale force winds and heavy rain. I used the corkscrew to help untie knots in soaked paracord and the blade to slice thick cable ties. I was a bit nervous using a slipjoint cutting cable ties in the dark, driving rain and freezing wind (my Leatherman was in the car) but this simple Vic Spartan didn't miss a beat. It's a great urban EDC.


    Picture from a couple of days ago just before I went out into the gale, hope it suffices.

    My Surge has been busy the last few days while working on a house.

    Screw driving, prying, scraping, cutting, wire cutting...

    Managed to cut through the extension cord while trimming the bushes. Good grief. Used the Gslip to peel back the insulation.
