I've got a few of Doug's little kits and have added, barely, an oven bag and a few water tabs in each. I've also stuck a SAK Classic in each except for one where I stuck a little L.L. Bean labeled Buck that was a promo freebie with the Buck 110 they have on their site. It seems like a perfect little lock back mini-PSK knife with a much better blade than the Classic but Bean doesn't sell them separately and Buck has nothing like this on their site. It's ChiCom made.

You know the size of the Ritter PSP so what would be the best tiny knife that would fit in the little room leftover in that kit?

I know all about carrying something proper in my pocket, on my belt, etc. I am specifically asking about something that will fit *in* this kit.

I have gone to the SOG Twitch II with the clip removed. Originally I had one of the knives and the clip screws fell out. Being impossible to find, the clip screws and clip were trashed. Once I realized the great fit, I bought one for each PSP and trashed the clips from the start. Between BOB's and Car Kits that makes a total of 10

I donīt know how much space is left for a knife in DR PSP since I donīt have it but if you are looking for a tiny knife I would recommend Byrd (by Spyderco) Starling. I carried this knife on my keychain and tested it quite a bit but unfortunately I have lost it not long time ago. I think I will buy the same knife because I really liked it.
Despite its size it has quite good ergonomics and can get the job done. I didnīt observe any blade play. It seemed to be built very well.
However another and probably better option could be Spyderco Ladybug (better steel and various colors - I would go with orange for PSP). But it is more expensive than Starling. Byrd Starling has very good price/performance ratio. (Itīs around 12 USD)

I am not really knife expert and I havenīt tried many knives so maybe there are better options out there. This is just my experience with Byrd Starling.

This is my photo of it:


Edit: Spyderco homepage says: "Discontinued - Closeout Price." But it can still be found in various stores.

I bought a $10 knife from Walmart for both my PSK, as well as my Altoids kit. I can't find it on the walmart website, but I think this might be it:

Lockback, small folder, very thin. Probably OK for a few days use. I know that Buck also sells a 2" lockback for the keychain too, probably aruond $25.

Some interesting picks here. I am also intrigued with the Buck 505. Having two 501's, I know about the design. Solid knife.

Doug, more info somewhere? The knife in a sheath photo doesn't tell me too much. Ever think about using a just slightly larger pouch? Your kit is great (I've got four) but having the room to add a condom or oven bag, a few water tabs, a button light and small PSK knife would make it about ideal.

And a Heat Sheet Bivvy, and, and...

wink
