A well designed, single purpose cutting tool. The temptation to add more often leads to compromises, so we've kept things simple and focused. The Sidekick is built to be a secondary to your everyday knife, ideal for situations that could serious dull, damage, or gum up your primary blade. Its precision milled from a single bar of Grade 5 Titanium - that means an absolute minimum part count with no screws or fasteners. It utilizes standard, readily available utility blades so that you always have access to a sharp cutting tool. Blade changes are quick and tool-less. The action is smooth and consistent for easy one-handed operation. It's not much bigger than the razor blade it uses, allowing the Sidekick to fit easily in your coin pocket or conceal on your keychain.
Weight: 0.81 oz

I originally bought the tool for dedicated package opening at home, but since it came with a key ring I tried that out and love it. If I have something with lots of tape to open I use this, so no more sticky crud on my nice knives. It's also handy if there may be staples, so no chipped knife edges.
Love this little cutter!
Exactly what I was looking for. Something I could keep on my Keychain. So I could have a sharp blade on me at all times. Haven't needed to use it yet but I barely notice it on my Keychain. Definitely worth the discounted price. I don't think I'd pay fifty dollars for it though. The fit and finish on all of their products have been top notch so far. I definitely recommend Axial Gear.
I use this everyday since getting it. I use it more than my knife I got with it. I will be ordering one for my wife.
I keep it on my keychain for those times when I may not have my knife on me.
