Recently, I was a part of a university event where I needed to present along with a senior executive from my company and several student teams.
As you’re building your presentation, anticipate problems before they happen and have a contingency plan in place.
You never know when you’ll need a way to quickly transfer a file from one computer to another prior to a presentation. After this recent experience, I finally broke down and bought my own remote — probably something I should have done ages ago (I know, I know). I mentioned three other inexpensive things to carry along with an extension cord – a two prong adapter, a cube tap (so you can plug both your laptop and projector in), and a wood block for angling the projector upward onto a screen. Thank you very much for the very useful tips& wish your presentation went well anyways.
As I rarely use animation, and stick with large images, sometimes I also save my PPT as JPG and in case they have older version of MS Powerpoint or having Mac instead of Win PC, I just run my presentations as a slideshow. The first real knife I ever bought was the Kershaw Black Gulch Boy Scout model from the late 80s. Having a sharp knife at hand will let you cut a rope to make a clothes line on the back porch when the power is out, turn a garbage bag into a poncho so you don’t get soaking wet in the cold rain, cut your jammed seatbelt to get out of a car after an accident and at least a few thousand other useful things.
A few minutes with an Arkansas whetstone and the carbon steel blade is sharp enough to cut paper. What if you cash in the little change jar full of pennies, nickels and dimes that you’ve saved? Although it came from the factory with a good cutting edge, a few minutes with the sharpening stone and the Ferox is truly paper cutting, take a few hairs off your arm sharp. What if your coworkers are wrong when they bet $40 that you won’t drink that bottle of hot sauce?
The pocket clip extends up over the top of the SlimJim’s body and has a large center cutout. The Spyderco Delica runs around fifty bucks from Amazon, depending on which handle color you choose. The large hole in the handle serves the same purpose as a thumb stud, to allow for one handed opening. All of the knives tested were able to take a sharp edge and hold it well enough to be useful. In emergency situations, having some basic tools and the knowledge to use them in the proper and sometimes creative manner can make a huge difference.
Why not mention the ubiquitous (and much more handy than any single-blade folder) Victorinox Swiss Army knives!?
The folding single bladed knife can disappear in you pocket and quickly be accessed one handed, unlike most multitools.

Manufactured to High Quality Standards Description:The VonHaus 40 Piece Tool Kit is the perfect go-to set for emergency DIY tasks around the home. Its contents are specifically designed to aid in the deployment of a hospital command center and are aligned with the HICS standards. It has ample space to write notes and additional helpful information directly on the board. Rather than switching out the laptops for each different presentation, I decided to load all of the presentations on to my machine beforehand. I had all of the presentations also loaded on to a USB flash drive so I could transfer the files on to the desktop.
If I wasn’t early for the aforementioned event, I would have been scrambling and very stressed out right before I was set to present.

Common problem areas include needing internet access to show a website or displaying a live product demo.
More often then naught best laid plans go askew when it comes to the tech side of presentations. First, you can survey and adjust the presentation area — move tables, remove cables that could trip you up, rearrange the seats (if a smaller audience), etc. If you’re looking to move from PowerPoint apprentice to ninja, subscribe to this RSS today! Archaeologists have found evidence that the earliest people not only had stone knives, but also were working to improve them. Even though the Zero Tolerance knives are top of the line tools, they aren’t something that everyone can just run out and buy one of today. After a while, they all seemed to end up in one of three categories: the knives I didn’t like for one reason or another and got rid of, the knives that had either collector or sentimental value, so they didn’t get used and the working knives that went with me everywhere. There are a lot of cheap junk knives out there, but with a little hunting, you can find a good working knife at most any price point. There are more expensive versions available if you go with a fancier wood or a larger design, but the #7 with Beech wood handle is a classic. It came with a pretty keen edge from the factory and only a little finish work was needed to get it scary sharp.The blade is not made from stainless steel, but can be with an optional upgrade to one of the fancier models. As you might already know, fatwood is the resin saturated wood often found in the stumps of fallen pine trees. It is a small,  lightweight design that is big enough to actually cut stuff, but small and light enough to carry well in your pocket. The handle provides a firm grip while the front half of the blade certainly works better than the back half for this task. There is a lanyard hole on the rear of the knife and a strong pocket clip to help you keep up with it. The Ferox has absolutely no wiggle in it, either front to back or side to side, when the blade is locked open. The thicker handle really gives you something to hold on to while you cut, while the scalloped edges of the scales keep it comfortable. It came out of the box sharp enough to shave a bald spot on my arm.  The SlimJim also has a sliding rear lock which lets you secure the lockback blade open or closed.
However, the textured edges of the handle, which make the otherwise smooth stainless steel body safe, become more apparent to your hand, the longer you work. None of these sub $50 models were perfect, but that is to be expected when looking at knives that balance out features with price point. A simple pocket knife can make it much easier to get a fire started when things are cold or damp and you are down to your last match. However, I agree with you that a good multitool certainly has a place in survival and preparedness situations. Together, we can make a difference to ensure everyone returns home safely at the end of the day.
Varied Essentials The array of tools on offer has been carefully selected to include all the crucial tools needed for everyday home repairs and maintenance. The HICS Command Toolbox will become an integrated part of your hospital emergency preparedness plan. However, in its infinite wisdom, the university’s IT group blocked any files from being installed on the desktop including a font file that one of the teams needed.
I found it was better just to have one permanently in my laptop bag for external presentations in addition to the one I used in the office. I am happy to arrive an hour or more before my presentation to make sure that everything is working. As a Mac user perhaps you have had the same issue that I often have run across – incompatibility of the venues projector to my Mac Air (like you I have the VAG adapter on hand)? Second, you can get yourself some water before everything starts (because nobody in your audience may think of getting you any).
Ancient people on multiple continents would heat treat the stone in a fire before flaking it so that it was easier to produce better quality edges. Advances in materials allow the creation of much stronger, lighter and more durable designs.
As far as emergency preparedness is concerned, you want to make sure that you have at least one knife from this last category, a good tool that will be there when needed, but won’t leave you broken hearted if something bad happens to it. Opinel is a French company that has been making these style knives, with few design changes, for around 120 years. Keeping a thin coating of oil or wax on the blade will help prevent rust from being a problem. The rear part is designed for cutting through things like nylon seat belts and rope, where the serrations excel at tearing through the multiple fibers of the material.
Maxpedition is well known for their high end packs and nylon gear, but they are just starting to get into knives. For opening, there are thumb studs on both sides of the blade and a flipper sticking out of the top. This is nice in situations where having a knife is perfectly legal, but swaggering around like Rambo or Crocodile Dundee would be socially acceptable. The trick is to consider what your needs are and then pick a model that has a feature set designed to match. From cutting to tightening, measuring to hammering, your DIY requirements are covered with this comprehensive tool kit.
What I didn’t anticipate was that the presentation remote would only work with the desktop computer in the auditorium. It’s always a best practice to arrive early for important presentations to familiarize yourself with your environment, technology, audience, etc.

I often have screenshots of the website or product in my presentation if something goes wrong. Having a large-capacity USB drive overcomes these types of issues, and the USB drives are now fairly inexpensive. It works flawlessly, and I don’t have to worry about figuring out an unfamiliar remote. I’m sure there are other tips and tools that may have helped you to be more prepared. I always call the venues tech person to confirm compatibility and get their assurance but come presentation day it is usually a scramble. Even the idea of the folding knife is nothing new, with Iron Age examples being found that date back over 2000 years.
Modern, computer controlled production  machinery has brought the cost down and consistent quality up to the point that a mass-produced knife can be an excellent tool with a long  lifespan.
The round shape of the handle fits well in your hand, but can feel a little bulky in your pocket if you go with one of the larger knives. The good news is that small pile of fatwood sticks or shavings is enough to get any proper fire started.
One of the tradeoffs with keeping the weight low and the price down is that the handle does not have any kind of a metal liner.
If you haven’t used a knife with a flipper before, it gives you another option to quickly get the blade out with one hand. Since SOG makes this model entirely out of stainless steel, you aren’t going to be sneaking through a metal detector, even if it might work in the movies. On the newest models they have improved the pocket clip to make it ambidextrous, so you can mount it to either side of the knife.
Storage and Organisation One of the most frustrating aspects of home DIY is finding the tool you need, usually right at the bottom of a cluttered tool box. While screenshots might not be as good as the real thing, they’re better than nothing.
I also hate being tethered to a computer, and the remote gives me the freedom I need to engage and interact with my audience (as well as a handy laser pointer built into the remote).
I have sometimes resorted to using a colleagues PC laptop – thankfully I save the presentation in ppt.
The Opinel does not have a pocket clip and is designed to keep your spare change and keys company. There is a thumb stud on both sides for one handed opening. The bright orange handle color would be hard to loose and the rear lanyard hole gives you another option to keep it from disappearing. Rather than just put their brand on an existing model, they started from scratch and built their own.
The easiest way I’ve found to learn how to  operate one is to point the closed knife down at the ground, while gripping both sides of the handle, with your finger on top of the flipper.
It has a simple matte finish instead of exotic wood scales and fancy scrollwork, which keeps it affordable. When these first came out about a dozen years ago, they were at the cutting edge of knife design and these days just represent a good, fairly basic lockback folder.
If you are looking for a simplistic gentleman’s knife that will feel invisible in your pocket, then the SOG Slim Jim is worth considering. Well with the VonHaus 40 Piece Tool Kit you'll locate your desired implement in seconds as each individual tool has its own respective moulded slot, specifically designed to hold and organise your tools. Luckily, someone had brought their own presentation remote so we could just run the presentations from my laptop. Panic from not having a back-up plan can throw off what would have been a great presentation. Today, a good knife is still one of the most useful tools that you can keep in your toolbox, or even better, in your pocket. They are premium items, with titanium and G-10 handles, as well as ELMAX steel blades that run on a ball bearing assembly so they just glide open. But, a whittling away on a good chunk of old fatwood can almost be like trying to cut a piece of glass, since the resin hardens with age. It is not a super heavy duty tree chopper that will help you build a life raft, but it works just fine as a general use pocket knife.
Hold your arm straight and your wrist bent, the just quickly straighten your wrist and press down on the flipper at the same time. There have been multiple small changes over the years, as they keep making small tweaks to the same basic design.
If you want more of a heavy duty folder with some features from higher end knives, then the Ferox fits the bill. All this contained within a slim, hard-shell case that easily slots away into a storage cupboard. He was able to work with the factory to get some of the better features of high end knives brought into a folder at an affordable price point. The handle is about as thick as two quarters, so it is carries exceptionally well in your pocket. All the tools included are manufactured from high quality, environmentally-friendly resourced materials and are tested and approved by experts, ensuring great value for money.
That said, this is a good knife to keep in your pocket or laptop bag if you want a knife on hand just in case, and not one that you will be using all day long.
