Use #51 for a Pocket Knife: Saving a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

KeySmart – The Key Aggregator

For a Valentine’s Day gift I received a wonderful gift of a .50 caliber bullet pocket knife from my lovely wife.  This bad Larry is big – it’s the actual size of an .50 caliber bullet with casing, and it’s heavy.  The blade is quite long, spanning the entire length of the case.  It does Read More

Use #49 for a Pocket Knife: Loosening a Stripped Screw


I find this use particularly funny because of a prior “failed” use (see: Failed Use for a Pocket Knife: Tightening a Screw) having almost the exact same scenario with quite obviously the opposite outcome.  The story goes like this:  We have a particularly janky towel rack in our bathroom and if you look at it Read More
