FAVORITE TOOLS: My Multipurpose, Jack-of-All-Trades Knife


When it comes to tools, I am an absolute minimalist. I'm not very fond of fancy tools, I love working with my own hands, and with just a few simple and good tools. This little knife is my favorite tool... I think I would be lost without it! It's sturdy and practically unbreakable, and I use it for ALL kinds of tasks... from scratching glue or paint rests off any surface (the rounded edge won't damage surfaces, not even wood, and it's not sharp! No cutting danger!) to opening some hard-to-open container, to opening staples, to slitting letters open... you name it! I have even used it for texturizing polymer clay, and it's THE tool which always travels with me! Clever little tool! :) I just love my little, old knife!
Do you have a favorite tool?

Good afternoon, dear friend! My favourite tool, among others, is my hot glue gun! It' helped me so many times, with so many things that had to be done! Have a good month... filakia!

This caught my eye, Anna, because I have the same philosophy about tools--as few and as simple as possible. Of course there is a need for specialized tools, but when you can simplify, the better. Picasso said that to paint a painting using one size brush will give that painting a direct and fresh aspect. I love your special tool.

Thank you for all your lovely and very interesting comments, my friends!!! :)

Funky Monkey and Dimi: I love my hot-glue gun too! I dedicated it a post too! :)

Dawn: I LOVED your words! I agree 100% with you -- we sometimes need specialized tools, of course, but when you can simplify, the better! And Picasso was so right, of course!

Hallo :),

ich glaube ich bin auch ein Minimalist und liebe es zu wissen, wie ein Werkzeug und Material funktioniert und reagiert und da kann man sich eben an das meistgenutzte alte Werkzeug am Besten halten.

Liebe Grüße und ein schönen Sonntag wünscht Senna
