I've used it as a wrench to tighten the nuts on my kid's bikes. It works quite nicely and doesn't really round off the edges.
I haven't tried prying anything with it but it figure if i ever needed extra leverage, I could open up my swisstool, stick one handle into the wrench slot and have a kind of extra leverage from the swisstool. The swisstool spirit is tough as nails and i wouldn't hesitate to use it as a leveraging bar.

Well, it's certainly cheap enough for me to buy one for a test. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.

Keep in mind that Cody's list isn't designed to be the "ultimate" in gear but rather an effective and *inexpensive* solution.

Also... filling a condom is easy. It just takes a tiny amount of creativity. If I was carrying Cody's kit I would plug the hole in the bottom of the mora sheath with my thumb and use the sheath as a "cup" to scoop water into the condom. If my condom is in an Altoids tin then the tin is my "scoop". It's amazingly easy to fill a condom. How about a shoe or a hat? Even a properly folded piece of paper, bark, a leaf, a piece of cloth, or any other number of things can be used. You just have to use your #1 survival tool. The one attached to the end of your neck.

What do you think of the different responses?
Thermo-regulate, hydrate and communicate.
