For day to day work a knife is an essential tool. Things need to be cut, trimmed or opened and a sharp easily manipulated knife is the way to do it safely. I learned this early on in life thanks to the Boy Scouts and their excellent training program for safe knife handling. The knife pictured is a Spyderco Native. The blade shape and handle design allow it to be used for a multitude of tasks. I also like the fact that the pink handle makes it easy to find and cuts down the hard edge appearance. Other than the color it’s as tough and durable as any heavy duty blade in it’s size range.
