Product Description

The diminutive Piranha clips to a key ring or a carabiner so you can easily take where you need to go. The blade is machined from surgical quality 440-C stainless with a serrated blade—just what you need to peel duct tape off your shoes or dig a splinter out of the palm of your hand. The locking blade can be opened and closed with one hand but it's absolutely impossible to open when clipped to a normal carabiner. Bottle opener included.

does not get any smaller, one of the few knives made for climbers only, not much other function. Somebody else made a biner knife, but it did not fit on most biners, forget who it was (had plastic casing), but the knife was way too big anyway. This is perfect (unless you are in bear country). Cannot open when on the biner, but Trango gives a little disclosure on their site that it can wiggle open on some biners, so pay attention where you put it. They also do one on the end of a nut tool for $10 more.

little tool. Very light and compact. Designed for climbers. I can't imagine a better one.
