I've been carrying a pocket knife for most of my life, and this one has the essentials without being too bulky. The knife is used daily for opening packages and envelopes. It's sharp enough to cut through the pesky plastic packaging that encases so many retail products, too. The other blade doubles as a screw driver, and the accompanying file is great for smoothing a rough edge on a fingernail. The small scissors are work well for clipping clothing threads and the plastic ties used to attach price tags and labels to almost everything one purchases. The white color is a nice change from the typical Swiss Army red.
