Use #21 for a Pocket Knife: Dig a Bottle from the Ground

I was bringing our kitchen trash out to our trash bins by the shed when I noticed a piece of brown glass peeking from underneath the dirt next to the trash can. Mostly submerged in dirt/mud, and being the “trash” area I didn’t want to dig it out with my fingers.

Thankfully I had my trusty 99 cent Reny’s knife on me and I successfully used it to pry the small bottle (pictured above) from the ground. Instead of a many years old glass bottle with a story behind it, I dug up what appeared to be a not-so-old “nip” or bottle of most likely whiskey.

The use of the knife as a sharp probe or tool proves that pocket knives are more than just pocket cutting or stabbing tools.
