At more than 15" that tool is longer than the three-cell MAG-LITE I use to EDC.

The selection is not complete without a certain YouTuber's favourite box opening implement...

For when you need more precision than a survival axe when opening boxes.

That ax reminds me of Gallagher's all-purpose kitchen tool.

Do you know of any other tool he uses?

Here is a video demonstrating his multi-purpose tool, the Sledge-O-Matic.

Sounds like a ringing endorsement!

Regarding sharpening a disposable blade -- that was primarily in response to Jeanette's requirement that the tool continues to be useable if all the shops were closed in some sort of catastrophe. I've done it, and it's not hard at all. I used the Spyderco Sharpmaker. Maybe the angle was not the same as the original angle, but the blade worked.

Normally, it's just easier to replace the blade.

Spyderco Ladybug is a great little keychain sized folder that can still be opened one handed, fits basically any place and can be found in straight or partially serrated (I prefer the straight for easier carrying)
