I’m no expert on survival equipment, but I’m a fan of this thing. It’s about the size and shape of a thick pencil. It is light enough to stick in a shirt pocket without pulling at the fabric, and solid enough to be effective in a self defense situation.
It can be used to start fires. There is a whistle to call for help or alert others to your location. It cuts, scales, shaves, sharpens, whittles, etc. It is also an easy to carry pocket fishing pole sturdy enough to actually catch a fish. Works fine as glass-breaker. Get one for each family member to keep in their car and definitely throw one in your day pack.
