Interesting.
I hope you don't intend to carry it for defense. Lol

Or on a plane!

It's nice, though...
I had a Swiss Army version until TSA removed the much smaller knife, the scissors, and straight pin for me....I chucked what was left in the trash for them....

I guess I'm just old fashioned; I want a fixed blade and wet rock. Moral of that, make sure you know the person the gift is for!

Guys, you're reading way too much into this. It's not meant to replace any real survival tool. It's just meant to give you something in your pocket if you have nothing else. It's not the ultimate survival tool, it's just a tool.

And the person I'm thinking of giving it to will be thrilled to have another tool in the grand arsenal.

Right now, if I got stuck in the middle of nowhere with nothing but what is in my pockets, and wallet, at least there would be this. If you think you'll always have your GOOD bag no matter what, power to you.

Yeah I've got the "Card sharp" and "Credit card mini knife"
http://coolpile.com/gear-magazine/iain-sinclair-cardsharp2-the-credit-card-sized-folding-knife-to-keep-in-your-wallet/

http://www.ebay.com/bhp/credit-card-mini-knife

Both are simply "If you have nothing else look in your wallet" type of gadgets.
Do not allow them to be taken through metal detection areas as they will be confiscated.
I'm the sort you mentioned, I'll carry anything and everything available as I've been taught that when "IT" happens you get to respond with what you have on you at THAT moment.

PS I got them both in a give away ( totaled $6.00 S & H).

That's why I added "make sure you know the person the gift is for." You do and it sounds like it would make a great gift. As for the actual merits of the knife, it depends on the person. I rarely travel and I live in a fairly rural area. So I pretty much have everything close by if not on me all the time. For me it wouldn't be very useful. However there are a lot of people for which that knife could come in real handy. It's not a bad idea at all and would certainly be better than nothing.
