    Just for reference, the Gerber Dime is roughly the size of my index finger.

    I have a maybe 2 inch swiss knife type item that I found in a parking lot - a promotional item hence the promo logo on it......just has the basics, scissors, knife, file, screwdriver heads.

    Funny story - was going through the metal detectors/security persons at an arena......my little item made it through since it was buried in my too big purse. A friend's father had to take his back to his car - same size swiss knife item. He only had his in his pocket......

    Not to high jack this thread but I'm trying to find a compact pocket friendly (aka won't poke a hole in my clothing) screwdriver and/or ratchet tool that either has a fixed Phillips #3 bit or features the ability to accept common size bits. I'd prefer a folding tool or one with a minimal slim profile as I'll be carrying it in my jacket pocket when snowboarding. It seems that most multi-tools don't feature Phillips #3 which is really the only screwdriver type I need. Any suggestions? Thanks Smilie

    I have been carrying these for a while now and they are great for what they are!
    They are really nicely made and a lot tougher than I thought they could be for the size.

    The 1/4" bit model is flat with the bit removed too.

    I think the brand is Titan?
    I got them in the U.S. at Northern Tool.

    Not that any of this will be helpful for you, but thought I'd share. I use this 6-in-1 Swiss Tech key multi-tool. It is very small and a bit hard to open, but it has come in handy many times. I've also been successful getting it through TSA for travel, where it has been most useful.

    However, I've never used the bottle opener because the blades are actually very sharp. It's a bit awkward and requires some trial and error to use it efficiently. But when you need a small blade or a screwdriver, it works well.

    I carry a TSA-friendly corkscrew when I travel and a separate bottle opener in my EDC. I have never been successful using the corkscrews on multi-tools. They're just too short.

    Although I don't think it hits all your needs, ive just funded this kickstarter for a general lightweight multi tool. Won't match a leather man extra but as an emergency, always have with me, I think it could work.

    Are these the tools you're talking about? They look pretty compact. Would you be willing to provide some info or shots for size reference?

    TITAN - 11202 Micro bit driver and ratchet
    TITAN - 11203 Looks like they also come in offset

    Not familiar with the brand, but looks decent!

    They are sitting on a 3"x5" index card in my pic as a reference!

    My original multi tool is The Leatherman Wave that I now keep in a ballistic holster in my glove box.

    For travel, in my back pack and if I need to carry it, it's The Leatherman Charge Ti. Excellent, lighter weight, reliable and rock solid.

    The leatherman skeletool accepts bits and is fairly compact and lightweight. But I don't know if I'd carry it skiing, at least not in my jacket (would be perfect if you ride with a pack though). When I was snowboarding (went back to skis after a couple of seasons), I carried a small tool, I think Burton made it....not sure if they still make some thing like that.

    I don't think there's one tool that does everything. I carry a SAK (climber 2 usually), and a leatherman skeletool with their bit set.

    I just have a small Swiss knife (classic, 2.3 in long, 7 functions) that I have on a key strap. I've tried bigger Swiss knives, a Leatherman-type tool, card-style multi-tools, and while they are nice to keep in my car or at my desk, the little Classic is the only one that's consistently useful enough to me to keep close to hand. Most of the time I find I need scissors, a small blade, a pointy tool (toothpick), or tweezers. But I never find myself needing a screwdriver, which is the one thing I might want a more robust multi-tool for. (Sometimes I use the nail file to get by with tightening a screw, if I'm not at home where I can grab a screwdriver.)

    I keep thinking I want a very small, simple pocket knife (not folding) to add to my EDC, but every time I go to look I get overwhelmed by the choices and just bail. Smilie

    ETA: Also, I never, ever think about taking my Classic out of my bag in the case of security screens, except when I travel. I've presented my bag at museums, the baseball stadium, government buildings, and have never even been asked to take it out for inspection. I'm guessing a pocket knife - unless really short - would not pass muster.

    EATA: That Gerber Dime is looking reaaaaally cute though!! Might be a good gift idea for the holidays for my fellow preparedness enthusiasts. Smilie Thanks terayon!!

    I'm not sure I'd want to put a knife in my pocket if the blade didn't fold...

    Have you seen the Spyderco Bug? It's tiny and cute but actually sharp. You can hang it from a keychain.

    I am puzzled by this too?
