The Classic Swiss Army Knife. A Mad Mike's Product Review
That little cow-bell up there came all the way from Switzerland, too. My Huskies respond to it.
What you're looking at is a fingernail file, a flat tip screwdriver and a screwdriver that works on phillips-head screws, too. That's why it's tapered. I wouldn't recommend using it to try and change the muffler on your car, or anything like that but, the screwdriver does work on an amazing amount of little gadgets.
No need to call AAA to open the battery box on Energizer Bunnies with one of these tools handy.
There was a model's fingers lined up for this part of the photo shoot but, she got a queasy stomach and I told her that's OK. I still like Ryukyu Rusty's Gal. She just missed out on a chance to be a member of my Swiss Army, if I ever decide to start one up. It's not for everybody, you know.
Doctors, may not approve of Ryukyu Mike's methods but, this is the way I do it when there's none around.
There would have been a few more photos showing how I torch the tick (with a lighter) while holding it with the tweezers. That's to make sure they don't get on my dogs, or anyone else. But, I was in a hurry to get two more ticks, I'd been playing host to, when the first one escaped !
Back to the Swiss Army knife. The scissors and knife blade are the tools I use the most. I use them to open snailmail, medicine bottles, "New Improved" absolutely idiotic-any-kind-of-containers or packaging from aspirin bottles to DVDs to freakin-impossible-to-open-with-your-bare-hands packages of frozen food.
The Swiss Army knife will never let you down. I love it.
