    Mine is a Swiss army credit card tool.
    Fits inside your wallet and has a small knife that's especially good at digging out those small flints and thorns from your tyre before they work their way in.

    I've whipped mine out on numerous occasions.
    And let's try and keep this thread wholesome and uplifting please!

    I quite like my Leatherman, which is actually a few things combined. If I had to be purist then it would be a pair of pliers. Very useful things.

    This is my favourite tool:

    It has given excellent service over 4 years wrecking and removing the appalling B&Q mock Victorian decor which blighted our house when we bought it. All the ornate plaster has gone, all the ghastly brass lights, all the swirly pink-glossed Artex ceilings have been re-skimmed, the house is beginning to look less like a failing pub and more like a comfortable convenient modern home.

  7. Bosch SDS drill, eats through walls in seconds, chisels through concrete and even mixes morter and plaster.

    I would go with the Swiss Army Knife as well. I have two now, a basic one and the super dooper one Mrs P got me for my Birthday last year.

    "my body is my tool."

    can't mind if that was Alexei Sayle or Rowan Atkinson that said that on "Not the Nine o'Clock News."

    If you're caught carrying Paulus under the new guidelines from ACPO, you will be in breach of the law and probably given a custodial sentence. :rolleyes:;)
    As long as the sentence doesn't start with, "you know" or "innit", you will be allowed to post on the Forum. :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
