    The titanium handle helps keep the weight down

    I think he missed the weight. Assuming the typical shape for a knife, that thing must be close to 200,000 lbs.

    It must be hollow-ground.

    Funny!

    The most useful "pocket knife" I've ever found is a Victorinox Swiss Army one, have had it in my back pocket for about 25 years now. It's been discontinued, durnit.

    Victorinox "Cowboy"

    If you can find one used, go for it!

    I used to have a similar Wenger Swiss Army knife. I'm not sure if I liked the screw drivers or the toothpick more. I gave it to my youngest son back when he was still a cub scout.
