20+ Great Things to do with a Pocket Knife

I know there have been a couple of pocket knife threads on this forum, but I came across this last night and thought I'd post it.

20+ Great Things to do with a Pocket Knife

I love my pocket knife, and carry it most everyday unless I'm going into a government building or something like that. I find that it is an extremely useful tool. I carried one as a child. My Dad bought my first one when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade, and I still have it. I got away from it for a long time, but I've been carrying one again going on 10+ years. Very useful and you never know when you're going to need it. It is a great tool.

I posted a link for pocket knife uses, but what are your favorite uses?

What pocket knife are you using?

I misplaced my favorite, and I'm currently using my back up which is an old folding Buck knife I found at a gas station.

I use mine to skewer meats and pass them around a campfire.





Some of those were pretty neat, but most were just kind of ridiculous. #1 as a bottle opener? I'd probably slice off one of my fingers doing that.

Benchmade Griptillian 4" folder here. Can't imagine how anyone functions without a knife. All day long I open boxes, cut tape etc. but off hours you can open an envelope, clean/trim your nails, peel an apple, take out a sliver, pry something open, cut yourself out of a broken seat belt (yes I actually had to do this once), cut a loose thread off your shirt. Etc., etc.

A sharp piece of steel is perhaps the most useful thing ever invented.

At weekends, I'm seldom without my Spyderco Endura...



And at work - like today - I always have a little Case Peanut in my pocket...

Cutting open :

1) New amp/toy boxes from UPS
2) slitting the plastic off new CD's (yes I still get them)

I always have one, this is my everyday. If you're going to open a bottle with one keep the blade closed and use a blunt surface on the handle as a fulcrum under the bottle cap lid ala the big lighter opener!

It's cool. I wasn't happy with the title anyway.

I still don't understand why it's spelled knife?

There is NO word currently in the English language spelled nife...so, who in their right mind decided it need the k infront of it? This kind of stuff keeps me up at knight.

I usually carry a Mini-Griptillian, which has been great. I also have a Kershaw Leek, but it's not as tool-like as the Benchmade.

To round out everyday carry stuff, I have a Leatherman Micra and a Streamlight Key-Mate on my keychain.

I've had a pocket knife of one kind or another since I was 6 or 7 years old. Been a Leatherman Multi tool for maybe ten years now. Before that a Buck Knife. One time when flying out of Montana I for got the Buck Knife in my pocket and figured I have to throw it away but they let me fly with this. Times have changed !

I carry a Gerber/Bear Grylls Compact Multi-Tool. Folds up quite, well, compactly, and has proved extremely useful!
