There are all kinds of cheap disposable scalpels along the same line. You could do the same with a single edge razor blade. Such things are fine for opening a package, but aren't what I would call a knife. I want more CYA in my cutting tools when wandering the woods.Jan 6, 2013 at 6:14 pm #1941329
I would never EVER carry one of these into the backcountry, but I always have my eyes out for the lightest options…Jan 6, 2013 at 7:14 pm #1941339

I sometimes want to cut off a short piece of tape. This looks like it would work well for that. Yes? No?

On my digital scale one of these little gems weighs 0.10 oz or 2.83495231 grams. ;-)

Newton, are you going to be able to perform emergency surgery on the trail with one of those cutters?
If so, you might need to carry along some extra painkillers.

We don't say the "S" word around the house much lately. I had some "S" back in November and a trip to the ER because of complications in mid December. :-0
I'm mending well and back to walking aiming towards getting back on the trail.;-)
No, I won't be doing any "ES" on the trail with one of my little cutters. But if memory serves neither will you.

Regarding those extra painkillers…
In the last 2 or 3 months I've swallowed and been injected with enough painkillers to anesthetize a small water buffalo.
For those who feel the need to go all Rambo in the field…
should do the trick.
Bob, but you and I are from a time where direct pressure, cob webs and a poultice were all that was needed. L O L
As far as cob webs go, I'm still trying to get them out of my head after being under General Anesthesia's command. ;-)
Welcome back Bob. I missed you.

Just make sure you use the right end when you're trying to brush your teeth in the dark!!
