Losable Knife


Below, excerpts from Ellen Grove's Cool Tools review.

I have a lovely little classic Swiss Army knife gifted to me by a former manager who gave them to every member of our team a few years back.

It lives in my purse or pocket and gets used almost daily for a variety of tasks — the small scissors, blade, and file come in handy.

Since it's on my person most of the time I'm always worried that one day I'll forget about it until emptying my pockets at the airport, and then it will be gone (many of my colleagues lost their knives this way).

The Losable Knife is intended to address this problem.

It has most of the same features as my brand-name knife (no toothpick or tweezers) but given that a box of five of these knives costs less than three good cups of coffee, I worry much less about it going astray.

After using one for a few months, I have no complaints about the quality of the blade, scissors, or nail file and at this price I can afford to spread a few around the house so that I always have one at hand.


5 for $13.50.
