If you are going to put the fishing line in there anyways, why not wrap it around something other than a pen cap to save space, like something else you could use. You could wrap it around the matches or around a small flint and steel fire starter.

And if you were stranded in the middle of the woods, what do you use the razor blade for?

I believe the pen cap can be used as a whistle.

I hadnt thought of that. I was going to use it to store a few matches.

The razor blade has a variety of uses. You wouldn't want to have to use your other knife for any surgical needs. If your main knife beaks, it can be mounted onto a stick to make a makeshift knife. It can also be used to make a small animal trap, if you have the ingeneuity. Or you can use it on flint or a magnesium rod indtead of one of your good blades.
