Knives are handy.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
And they are even more handy when they are small and easy to carry so you always have it with you. I keep this little guy in a small zippered pocket on my chalk bag along with 10 feet of half inch webbing and two rap rings. and it comes in handy all the time!
this knife is super sharp so it goes through webbing and rope like butter. its really nice when there is a ton of tat on an anchor and you are cleaning it all up. when you have it clipped with a biner it wont open, which is smart. most the time I keep it in that pocket but when I have it clipped off I don't want to worry about it opening up on my harness and cutting all my stuff up.
If you climb in the desert or alpine a lot where anchors slings can be sketchy or missing, this is a must have tool.
Awesome little lifesaver
Though it is mighty small, it is mighty light and has a solid, toothy blade.
My thoughts in brief:
It's not that easy to wield, given it's small size. concern I'll drop it while hanging on a cliff
The loop is good for a small caribiner
It's a little tough to open one handed (see fear I'll drop it)
The blade is sharp and will cut through anything
One handed closing is easier than openning
I wish its loop was large enough to fit a finger in (other than my pinky).
The enclosed photo gives some sense of scale. It's definitely small. Add a caribiner and it might be a little easier to grip. Finally, the loop is too small for a finger. Even a pinky, often.
I honestly didn't realize how small this thing actually was. Its big enough to do the jobs but small enough for you to realize you even have it hanging from your harness. Which is kind of the point of a climbing knife its there when you need it but you don't even notice it when you don't . My only complaint is that its so small that it is a bit difficult to use. Also Trango makes a nut tool that looks to have this knife built in for only five bucks more i wish I might trade this in and up grade to that.
