Backpacking Knife?

Many people ask me what knife I carried when I hiked the Appalachian Trail. The answer is underwhelming. I carried the Swiss Army Classic. Yes that is right, the tiny one with the scissors. If you have read my posts you know I am all about lightweight packing. This knife is enough and not too much. It opens boxes and packages of food and cuts my toenails. It is also not so expensive that if it got lost I would cry over it. I will never forget the time I left my $400 Gore-Tex jacket at a shelter and had to hike 4 miles back to get it. Ouch!
