Pocket Pal

Meet my best pocket pal.  This little keychain Swiss Army Knife is by far the most used, most useful, most capable, and sometimes surprising little pal I have.  I rarely go anywhere without out it.  As you can tell by the wear marks and scratches, this little guy has been around living in my pocket for years and years.  In fact, the only thing on my key ring is my car key fob and this knife.  I am kind of a minimalist that way--not liking extraneous things in my pockets.  In fact, my wallet is minimalist too consisting of one credit card and a drivers license held together by a rubber band.  Sometimes a $20 bill will find its way into my wallet when I know cash is needed.  Anyway, back to my pocket pal.  This little baby has a sharp knife blade, a file, a flat-tipped screwdriver, scissors, tweezers and a toothpick.  The toothpick is used most often and I am sure the germaphobes cringe at the thought of all the bacteria living on the toothpick and its sheath that never get washed with soap.  Oh well, maybe that helps keep my immune system strong.  But hey, I do wipe off the toothpick often with my shirt tail before putting it back into it's knifehandle sheath.  Whether its cutting open packages or those stupid transparent hard plastic wraps around so many consumer products, or cutting wires, strings, skin flaps off wounds, removing splinters, tightening small screws, filing down hangnails, picking food out of teeth, pulling ingrown whiskers, cutting cardboard....just to name a is just the most handy tool around and has earned its place as my pocket pal.  My first version was red.  They come in all kinds of colors.  Here is an Amazon link to the best pocket buddy I have ever found: Swiss Army Knife Pocket Buddy.
