The Minimalist, Lightweight Knife

These tiny, lightweight knives might make the perfect pocket knife for everyday use, and they're no doubt great for travel. Note: Probably not on planes.

Manufactured by Baladeo, the knife is available in two featherweight varieties, 22g and 34g, and performed pretty well in basic knife-related tasks (although, as Boing Boing notes, they are not workhorses).

The only "minor" issue they discovered while using the knife was that the locking mechanism slipped once and folded in such a way that it could have conceivably cut the tester's fingers. But it didn't!

Most pocket knives seem pretty bulky, this might be nice to check out.

I always carry a knife. You never know when you may need to stab someone.

That would be very cool to have. I want one.

The K.I.S.S has been doing that for years...I'm not a huge fan though, the design of the blade requires rather less than efficient blade edge design.

Looks cool. For practicalities, though, it's a very bad design.

This is so much better than the bulky pocket knives I have, I wonder if it would be big and strong enough to use though...

I'd still prefer to carry around a butterfly knife though.
