LOVE those tweezers! If you lose yours, they can be reordered at a very affordable price. http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Tweezers-Small-6-Pack/dp/B0016CTAZC/ref=pd_sim_sg_4

'Cause splinters suck.

for me the knife is both a tool and a weapon and I carry one for the purpose of both, in my experiences in life I have found that sometimes when all else fails the knife is the way to go. I carry a fix blade knife just because I feel like I can abuse it more then a folder but also I feel more comfortable in carrying it because it's not a folder and it's a solid piece of steel.

+1. I'm not good enough to fight with a knife any more.

The human mind is the world's deadliest weapon. In the hands of a trained individual, even a ball point pen is a weapon. The knives that ride in my pockets, and on my belt are tools. The folding E-tool behind the seat of my pick up is just that, a tool. Once need arises, I am the weapon. Whatever I use is still the tool. If things have digressed to where I need to use a tool as a weapon, I have already failed by letting the situation digress to that point.

What it all boils down to is this. Every tool is a weapon, and every weapon is a tool. Plain and simple.
