I purchased this a while back and will say without a doubt this is one shape knife. I forget exactly was I was doing with it brand new out of the package but I cut myself deeper than I have ever in the past and without know it. I had to finish the job I started but I have been most respectfully of this fine low cost tool. If you slip with this knife you will cut yourself very deep....excellent tool for the money. JC
Many years ago, I used to drive 1 1/2" or longer roof nails into the lower corners of the flashing, but now I use metal roof panel screws with neoprene washers. These are self sealing and do a great job for the high wind zone of the gulf coast.
Thanks for another great tip.

Others are Auditory and want to hear the hint and of course don't forget Tactile which the internet does not support as of yet....Thanks for this hint and "A Better Way"
Also we normally hand nail the end joints. You get a better feel for correct nailing vs the nail gun.
