    Leatherman Squirt for gear repair and first aid work.

    Opinel #9 for food and fire building.

    In winter for ski trips when I pack a folding wood stove (Emberlite) I swap the Opinel for an Opinel folding saw and fixed blade knife like the Mora Companion

    Some eras used steel.

    The Romans pulled twenty mile days on their through hiking. Carried an amazing base weight. But used hiking poles instead of packs.

    A .3 ounce knife is tempting to replace a razor blade.

    Okay... Well tonight is July 3rd and I am stealth camping in Maryland with another hiker named Lord Bearclaw. Lord Bearclaw carries a Roman sword and wears a kilt... I could not make this **** up.

    My wife got all (ok, most) of her knives at Cutlery Corner [tv shopping]. One nifty pair was made into earrings! Yes, they were working knives, sharp, with one blade. On the other side was a machete, sharp on both sides, oh, about 24" long.
    Me?
    I usually carry a Snap-On single blade knife - easy to use one handed, and with practice you can close it one handed: I've got the cuts to prove it
