Got a piranha in the pocket!

22 Sep

imageOften when I’m working outdoor, I need scissors, something to cut carton boxes open, open a FedEx plastic envelop, unpack products, … And in the middle of nowhere what’s left to you is your bite and nails … Maybe not!
I’ve been benching solutions for quite a time now and recently found the Piranha Alpine Knife by Trango.
It’s a small pocket knife made from surgical 440-C stainless.
The Piranha is small and can be the beat friend of your keyring.
The blade is dented and cuts really well (watch the fingers or no more piano lessons) but Trango thought about it and it’s advised to carry the Piranha on a regular carabiner and it won’t open itself.
When you are finished your work with the Piranha, you’ll be able to open bottle thanks to it’s bottles opener.

Specs
. Dimension (blade: 1″/26mm, Piranha closed: 2,4″/6cm)
. Weight: 2,7oz, 19mm
. Price: 19,95$
Now you can say small, light and efficient as a Piranha!

If you are a regular outdoor person this will greatly help you but you might need another blade for long heavy work as because of it’s small size it may be uncomfortable.

I also have the Curve by Gerber (which brings to the plate many different screw imagedrivers and a bottle opener), 9,99$

PS: don’t forget to check it in, as blades even tiny ones are not TSA-approved.

    I’ve considered buying Gerber brand in the past, but opted for Spyderco instead. This is really neat though 🙂

    They say that big wonders comes in small package. But this can also become a lethal weapon.

      It’s more for carton boxes and cutting ropes …

        I bet that can do some damage in the wrong hands .. to more than boxes and ropes *smile – but I like it.

        A blade is always a blade, … Watch the fingers 😉
