Best credit card ever for scraping a frosted windshield. Titanium is waaay better than plastic!

Could it scratch the windshield?

No more than most any other bare metal instrument.

AND- it's easier to carry than a putty knife.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

Perfection is the enemy of progress. -Winston Churchill

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Do you use a metal windshield scraper? I can't remember ever having one.

that's a pretty good use of one, but will it damage any of the sensitive Apple-y stuff built in?

That's good to know. I used to use Cassette and CD cases, but its been a couple of years since I had a CD case (or player) in my car!

Oh yeah... I had one with a metal edge. It's really the only tool for dealing with full-on ice storms.

Pouring boiling water on the windscreen works. Once. Then replace the windscreen.

I don't now, but have used one decades ago. Ideally the blade is made of brass so it doesn't scratch the glass.

We have a couple of ice scrapers with a brass blade. Does a much better job than the plastic ones.

Uh, we use store-bought scrapers in our area. Cheap and effective. They go into the car in September and come out in May.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
