Quite so Leyland!

The uses unto absurdity to which our Tools may be put are
continuous with those uses we had meant them to be put...or,
thus do discovery keep it's fresh edge as well, for all...

I am sure someone somewhere, has sat on their bed, pareing
the odd toe-nail in intermittant, glazed eye of dreamy
abandon...with some of my little
Loop Tools...with whatever success they may bring to that
task...or find in it...

Still...a better foray than trying to use them to open
paint cans or scrape that peeling paint from the eves...

Best of good fortune with the Non-Tongs!

It's about time someone made them!

Glad it's you who did, is, will...
