Maybe I'm lazy, but I got tired of always having to sharpen my pocket knives. I found myself not using them for tough tasks because I didn't want to dull the blade. I work construction and have to sharpen pencils a lot, ever try sharpening a pencil with a halfway sharp knife??? Forget about using to tip to pry on stuff for fear of breaking the tip and having to re-grind a new one...

So now I carry one of these.

Want to pry open that door catch? cut some sandpaper? cut some heavy copper wire? cut open tin can? Use it for a prybar? go ahead... then throw that damn blade away and get another one. And you can use dang near the whole blade instead of the old heavy stupid style razor knives. Always razor sharp and they're super cheap and light.

My favorite is the Kershaw Leek 1660ST. You can open it with one hand, the blade is long enough to cut a sandwich if you like, it has a partially serrated blade for the difficult cuts with the other half smooth for the rest of the time and has a sharp point for digging out splinters. It's light weight and thin to boot.
