Dick: Hey Laura, what do you got there?
Laura: Hey Dick, someone gave me this knife. I have no idea what is the use of this.
Dick: Well I will tell you what, you have got one of the best utility knives that you can get your hands on.
Laura: Oh yes?
Dick: Yes, notice this long blade, it does a lot of your work, it cuts your bread, it cuts your grape fruit, you know whatever it may be and the beauty of that blade is that it locks, it cannot close on your fingers when you are using it. Okay, here we have got an excellent little crosscut saw that would cut wood, bone et cetera. There is a fine little pair of scissors, this is a can opener, that is a small screwdriver on the tip, there is a larger screwdriver here. A bottle of the copper and a wire stripper. Hey man, some tool. Now let me show you, this is the more usual size that people carry, it contains basically the same kinds of tools that you have there and here is one which is packaged so that you got compass and flashlight with it for a nice little package if you just want to carry one thing, small. Want to see some others kind of things like this? Okay.
Laura: Yes, Great.
Dick: All right the stuff we looked at before, those were utility knives, but if you want to have a whole toolkit in your pocket, these are what can do that. Notice here, we have got two different kinds of cutting blades, we have got pliers, we have got screwdrivers of different kinds, this is a can opener, that is a chisel, here are more chisels over here et cetera. Now, here is another version of that by a different company and you see it is just a little bit heavier duty thicker all the way through, weighs a little bit more, a little bit more rugged maybe. And here is one where we have a fine pair of heavy duty pliers, like that. And here, we go to like a many version which includes some of those same things, but something you do not mind carrying in your pocket at all.
Laura: So is this the case for it?
Dick: That is the fitting into something like that.
Laura: Oh great, look at that, is it not that compact?
