Blister blunder boils blood badly
I'm sure you need no introduction to the terrifying world of the Blister Pack. I come across these quite often in the packaging of computer parts and electronic components, not to mention anything purchased in the Two Euro Shop.
My implement of attack is usually a small Stanley craft knife with a retractable segmented blade.
This is flimsy enough at the best of times, but occasionally a blade segment will snap off under a bit of pressure. I'd considered using a standard Stanley knife (I may even have one in a toolbox somewhere) but the rickety side-to-side play in the blade is annoying.
So, knowing nothing much about knives, I asked a friend of mine who works as a building contractor to pick up a decent pocket-sized lock knife with a small folding blade.
The results were cruelly predictable.
If I ever manage to open it, I know what I'm slashing first.
