A Swiss Army Knife is for Life

A Swiss army knife is for life my friends not just for the chocolate spread.

Words of wisdom.

It doesn’t matter how desperate you are to get the ‘Nutella’ out from the bottom of that big jar, have respect for your Swiss army knife.

Ignoring reality that the chocolate is covering all of your fifty tools in your panicked animal like urge to satisfy your hunger at the side of the road, as only a cycle tourist knows, will cause problems later.

Some more words of wisdom from someone who did the learning for you.

After you’ve attempted to wet wipe clean those fifty tools, never ever stick your Swiss army knife in water and boil it to clean the chocolate off.  Best to just accept that some parts will never be ‘un-choc-lofied’.

A Swiss army knife is for life not just for the chocolate spread.
