Hi Kahley,

I carry a swiss army knife with two blades, a can opener, bottle opener,
scissors, and cork screw.  I just weighed it and it's exactly 2 ounces.
Actually this is the pocket knife I always carry with me.  It's small
and does everything I want.  (You never know when you *really* need
to open that bottle of wine! :)  When hiking, I use the blade and
scissors all the time.  Very handy.  There are many models of these
knives with more/less options.  If I were to buy one just for hiking,
I'd get the smallest one I could find with a blade and scissors.


p.s.  What's a p-38?  I'm familiar with the Lockheed aircraft, but I doubt
that's what y'all are referring to...
