Hey George,

I dig this little Stanley Utility knife but can you think of a way to access the spare blade in the handle (if I broke on the trail) without a flat head screw driver?

Kinda defeats the purpose of having a replacement blade in such a lightweight utility knife if I can't think of a way to get to it. :( :p Thx.

I use the Victorinox Classic knife... great for all applications and the knife is plenty sharp. For all those naysayers, I was cutting something unsafely like an idiot and the Classic cut my finger so badly I had to get it glued back together with wound glue. Good knife.

This summer I'm actually doing a knife field test on the PCT -- I've already got 10 sponsors. Most of the knives are about 3-4 oz, but one long shot sponsor provided one that's 19oz! If all the sponsors come through, I'll carry two at a time, rotating out each month.
