My Opinel knife
- I got it as a Christmas gift from my sister a couple years ago. It's one of those items I didn't know I needed until I had it. Now it's my favourite tool. It's much less delicate than I first though, and has survived many abuses (including things that no knife is meant to do, such as prying, hammering, drilling, etc). Within reason, of course. I love the simple design and the light weight. I own a few other knives, and they're good for specific things, but that's just it, you never know what your going to need a knife for until you need it. Rather than thinking about which knife I'm going to need to suit the task, I just bring my Opinel and trust in its versatility. It hasn't let me down yet.(I wish mine still looked this pretty)My Sansa Clip Zip
- You simply can't beat this player's size, price, battery life, interface, and non-Ipodness. The Sansa players have gone through a few versions, but with the Clip Zip they've worked out the all kinks (which were minor). Buying this increased my podcast listening tenfold.these thingsLoons!
