It’s curious a specialty tool like this would be called the Trucker’s Friend.   For certain it is a tool a trucker would want to have in their tool box, but its usefulness goes way beyond that limited functional area.  I would say this tool is by all regards a prepper’s friend as well. By Dr. [...]
