Increíble uso!! Sólo que se.supone que es para condiciones adversas, entonces de donde voy a sacar una prensa de banco para poder utilizar la navaja?

Swiss Knifes is irreplaceable thing, I am using it almost every day mostly because of a reusable toothpick

I had a swiss army knife that had a separate reamer and thread set (the hole), I never used it but I kinda deduced it had something to do with knots.

Carl Manx says:

I have had a swis army knife around the house or with my camping stuff most of my adult life… And I feel friggin stupid for not actually trying to sew with it.. I knew the concept of it just never tried it. That part of the tool also functions amazingly well to drill holes in wood and plastic. Twist In to the direction of the cutting edge.

There must be a better method of ending it than tying it together outside the lacings seams like that.
