This is my Leatherman Micra tool that has to be one of the handiest tools invented. It folds up to be quite small - only 2.5" long. All those little tools fold up into the handles, and the handles themselves flip out to become the scissors. I keep this in my backpack and have used for many different things. I can open bottles, tweeze out a sliver, screw my eyeglasses back together or cut something free. However, it can't go on an airplane in my back pack, which is too bad because I could probably disarm a bomb with this tool, or disable someone who is trying to set their shoes on fire. Instead I put it in my checked luggage and retrieve it later. It came in handy during my last trip to Mexico where it proved useful in cutting up limes that we picked off the trees and squeezed into our icy cold cervezas!
This is Pigma micron pen in my new Robert Bateman sketchbook. It's made of 100% recycled paper, and has a really nice texture and a bright white color. I like it a lot.
