Rated 5 out of 5 by from What did we ever do without these? I don't know how we survived in the old days before the Swiss Army penknife was developed. For opening packages, turning computer case screws, having a toothpick and scissors for broken nails and hanging threads handy on one's keychain. Our family has even worn out a few over the decades. One does tend to forget it's on the keychain, which leads to the (ahem) need to buy a new one after a flight, but the price is tiny for such a useful tool (and provides opportunities for gift-giving!). Suggestion: I keep mine on a removable keychain section with the house key, so I can just leave it home easily when I fly, or when I'm visiting in prison. The standard red was not available for this gift purchase; I hope the recipient likes the green! Exotic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Things DO Come in Small Packages! I took this little knife on a month long road trip out west. I used every part of it! The scissors trimmed moleskin perfectly and my fingernails as well. The tweezers came in handy when I brushed on a cactus. The toothpick was handy when I ran out of dental floss, and I can't even remember all the things I used the knife for. The screwdriver end was my savior when one of the screws in my glasses kept getting loose and the lens kept falling out! Unfortunately it is so small and lightweight I forgot it was in my backpack and airport security took it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from replacing an old friend My trusty small Swiss Army knife has opened boxes, tweezed splinters, cut tape and done a myriad of other useful things for me and my friends (and sometimes strangers) but had gradually lost some of its components. After all, I had been carrying it on my key ring for many years and gotten used to folks being surprised to find a grandmotherly type helping them open/fix/remove splinter etc. I was sad to retire it, but pleased to see the cost was about the same as years ago, and in my store, they would even take the remaining pull out parts to replenish others' old friends. Love my REI!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pays for itself! A great gift- and a knife to put on your keychain. They say the best knife is the one you use.... and this one earns it's keep, in a dozen small but useful ways, every day. If the blade locked, it would be the perfect mini knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these SANs This one replaced an older one that broke. I missed having the little scissors. Especially useful for emergency bang trims and opening food containers. I'm classy like that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thee perfect knife This is the absolute perfect knife for any camping trip. Unless you plan on skinning animals or whittling in mass quantities, this knife is all you're going to need. and it's a Swiss Army Knife so it's a high quality piece of equipment. Bottom line; it isn't bigger than it has to be, so it's perfect for backpacking

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always with me When I thought it was approved to carry a small pocket knife on the plane, I packed mine in my carry-on luggage. Most times it passed security, but not lately! So I buy new ones, live & learn. My everyday purse has a key clip, perfect for my knife. Many unexpected uses, handy. I'm attached to it. Have just bought as a gift for my teenage grandson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again ... and have Have owned half a dozen of these over last 30 years and given a like number away as gifts -- they're small and do get lost. Can't live without one for more than 2 weeks, take it with me always. Obviously too small to be a workhorse, but incredibly versatile and useful. Just watch out for airport security, that's how I lost my last one.
