    Awesome. Small enough to keep in your wallet

    the hole looks like a good lanyard hole

    Doesnt look to effective. I have a inch long swissarmy folding knife and a larger knife disquized as a key. Just other options to small self defense tools. I really like they key. It was only 2 dollars but very useful and sharp I sharpened the point so it can allso stab.

    nice idea the saw blade idea is a good one.... ill probally make one to repace the razor blade in my wallet

    keep the razor dude.....just in case

    round the end and sharpen the dull side of this then you have a knifesaw

    is the thing for self defense or survival or something? if it is for self defense i have my jet black stiletto witch is bigger! but then again i wont always have my stiletto, i will make one of these knives that folds! ingenious!

    PlastiDip could work for a handle. Then still with the paper to save your wallet,coat, etc.

    I bet it would hurt just as much if you left the blade the way you bought it.
