Like all tool we all have our own favorite pocket knife. I have had a number of different makes over the years, of all sizes,shapes and prices. But as a daily carry I kept coming back to what I call your basic boyscout knife. The last 25 or so I have carried a Victorinox Swiss army "Tinker". Just a versatile, handy well built little knife With a 21/2" and 11/2" blades. And I have taken a lot of splinners out with the tweezers.
