Size does matter...

Size does matter, so what's your smallest piece of kit that you use regularly?

Mine's a pea sized lighter :)

Fisher space pen, probably used every day at one time (now we don't get deliveries that often at work)

Stainless steel tooth pick and £20 note holder on my key ring. Great little Christmas prezzie from the wife.

Swisscard lite, use it all the time, particularly the scissors and pen. Just a bit thicker than a credit card.

I got a freebie version when I bought a leathman a few years back stopped carying it EDC as it's classed as a fixed blade :?

Got a little oppinel bug folder on my keys that gets some hammer...

Legal...... Says the man who walked past 2 coppers and a pcso with my Mora fixed blade high vis orange scabbard on my belt last night coming off the allotment one looked at me said good evening saw his eyes drop to the blade never said a word...
If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine

At 58mm long, a Swiss Signature Lite is always in my bag. It has a pen, small folding blade, scissors, nail file, 2.5 mm screwdriver and an LED.
Though it's soon to be replaced by a Victorinox Midnite Manager @ Work which has screwdriver, scissors, file, knife, bottle opener, wire stripper, Philips driver, pen, LED and 16GB USB 3. Perfect! :D

is it not the "Victorinox Jetsetter@work" you're making reference to here? I didn't think there was a version of the midnite with USB? if so post me a link please :D

There's probably some of my friends who would say the smallest thing I use is between my ears :D but to answer the question I'd have to say my Swiss Army knife is the smallest most regularly used item. I do have a p38 tin opener on my key ring but I wouldn't say that falls into the used regularly catagory.
