    That is a great solution. Forgot my SAK on a recent trip. I took my wife's vehicle so no back up (I decided not to inquire where her SAK's were). Did I ever suffer! I went to a nearby Bass Pro and was very disappointed in their selection of SAK's. I realized that I am fortunate to live about a mile from three shops that carry a great selection of knives. When I returned home, I found a SAK Rucksack on closeout from the Swiss Knive Shop, placed a SAK in my wife's vehicle, made sure a leatherman is in my archery stuff, check to see that my other leatherman is in my work bag, and immediatlely stuffed my SAK camper in my pocket!

    Yeah, I know that uncomfortable feeling of not having a pocket knife... Makes me a little queasy just remembering... Reflexively checking my pocket now....whew, OK I'm good. :)

    I tend to sprinkle a few of them in various packs and places too, but need to remember to clean those out before going to the airport.

    Here is my #8 picking up the slack for a failed steak knife.

    The steak knife killer is a block of frozen raw dog food - tripe. I was not even really pressing that hard, but the thing just folded. This is the second of my son's steak knives I have broken like this in the last month trying to cut dog food.

    The Opinel bucks up the dog food like it was nothing.

    I will have to get my son a proper set of steak knives instead of these cheap plastic ones.
