My wife picked up a few of these from Ikea less than 2 bucks.

The blade is somewhat flexible but doesn’t seem to affect use.

Some call it a “junk store” but I’ve never been when we didn’t buy something very useful. Most of those users were all under 10 bux.

Junk can be useful. A lot of people make a living off junk.

You can make any number of knives from kitchen knives found at your local thrift store. Good Will, Salvation Army, etc sell kitchen knives of any size or quality for less than a buck each. And, your money goes to a local charity rather than Sweden.

My three bladed Stockman’s pocket knife does the same thing and it is “always” in my pocket.

Oh, that’s right, hardly anyone carries a pocket knife any more. At least my three sons and grandsons don’t. Guess who they look to when they need to cut something?
