Compact, ergonomically shaped knife
You never know when a good knife will come in handy. Perhaps you're caught in the middle of an unexpected zombie attack or you're sitting down to dine on a tasty Porterhouse armed only with a Titanium spork. Either of these scenarios would be considerably improved with the presence of a trusty blade, and we think you should never be unprepared ever again.
This compact, ergonomically shaped knife with a built-in LED bulb is keychain friendly, so it can be with you at all times. The stainless steel blade folds in to create a knife that is only 2.5" in length when closed. The LED light features an auto shut-off after 3 minutes and runs on two CR-1616 lithium batteries (included). Built-in lanyard hole for easy keychain attachment.

* Blade Steel: 420J2 Stainless Steel
* Size: 2.5" L x 1.5" W x .375" H (closed)
* Blade Length: 1.25" (3.2 cm)

Intro: Anything I can put on my keychain in my opinion comes in very handy. I use my Inka keychain pen everyday when I go to the post office to write off an address label. Another keychain device I was looking for is a small keychain knife since I open boxes daily for review units.
Design & Function: Small, compact, the Buck Metro LED Knife is a go anywhere tool. It has a metal lanyard hole so you can attach this to your keychain. When closed it has an oval shape. When you need the knife you just take two fingers and open the knife. There is a metal bracket that slide over to lock the knife from folding back in. You simply slide it to the side and you can close the knife again. The Buck Metro LED Knife also comes with a bright LED light that uses two CR-1616 lithium batteries. This works out great at night when I opening my car or house door.
Conclusion: Very convenient is how I described the Buck Metro LED Knife. Everyone is in the situation at some time when they need to open a package or box and need a knife. And with the addition of the LED light for emergency blackouts or at night when you can't see makes the Buck Metro LED Knife a good value and essential for carrying around.
