A Key

to Freedom

The coming months will be all about warm weather and weekend trips, beach days and barbecues. With all of that outdoor activity, having a knife handy can help remedy a slew of situations. But if you don't consider yourself an urban woodsman, you may not have a Swiss Army knife at the ready or want to clip a Leatherman to your belt. In that case, might we suggest this small wonder—a folding knife sized a tad larger than the average house key? While you might not have much faith in such a tiny knife, the German-made blade is incredibly durable. And it's slim enough to slip onto your key chain (yet stealth enough to slip past airport security).
