Cleanup Hero: The Eraser Tool

I used to manually edit vector art in Illustrator the hard way, manually snipping a path in two places with the scissors, selecting the section I didn't want, deleting it and then joining the path back together. Well, no more.

I don't know why it's taken me so long to start using it but the Eraser tool is awesome! It's a much better tool than the scissors for most cleanup and editing projects. It also rejoins the path for you! For extra speed, use the Eraser tool's keyboard shortcut: Shift-E.
