Swiss Army knife or folding Buck Hunter, very useful. The SAK especially when you get a beer with a pry off cap.

Corroded battery terminals on the car?
Answer: HOT water.

Run plain water through your coffee maker, tea kettle, whatever - and get it HOT. Then pour it s-l-o-w-l-y over the battery connections and watch the crud and corrosion rinse right off. No scrubbing & scraping needed. One of my best kept secrets....

Default My best hunting/ skinning knife...

Was presented to me by my Grandfathers cousin in 1974. It is a presentation
grade laminated blade knife like a Swedish "Mora" knife made in Finland that
has been sharpened "down to half the blade it once was"! It likely, will last
the rest of my life as I am in my 50,s as the knife has seen over 30 years of
service so far! The makers mark on the blade is long gone, blade length
was 5",s when new, but is now 4.75",s long & the leather sheath with
stainless steel reinforcements still bears the fountain pen writing of... "Til,
Erik" Fron "Ivar Mickelsen" 1974. (It is the most precious & well used relic I
own)!

Mix some baking soda with that hot water until its a paste.....brush it on and rinse it off a few minutes later.

Never tried just plain hot water, but I will now.

You will wonder why you ever bothered with the baking soda.

Especially if you've ever had it run down into the battery cells.

Leatherman is not aas good as a real tool but sure beats nothing when your 30' up on a rooftop. I carry a 6" Crescent wrench on my belt and use it a lot.

A three inch, Buck single blade pocket knife. I have had several, but got my first one at age 8. Lost it to a guard in Erie Airport in about 1995. I had carried it through airports for years with no problem, but this woman was afraid I would hijack the airplane with it and confiscated it.

I have replaced it several time since as I have given them away to others a time or two.
