Now, while I love new tools, the one tool that I’ve never had to replace has been my fencing pliers. No matter what I have to fix or do, the job can usually be done by my good ol’ fencing pliers.

This tool works like a pair of pliers, cuts wire, pounds nails and pulls out fencing nails. It also works great for picking up scorpions and depositing them elsewhere. I’ve even used it in a pinch to dig a hole for a geranium the cat dug out. For some reason, I’m always breaking handles or pulling the metal parts off the handles. I’d have to say that my fencing pliers are No. 1 on my list, followed by that roll of duct tape and baling twine.
