Bigger isn’t always better. Especially when it comes to a heavy knife crammed in your pocket. That’s why we dig the new Gerber Curve ($15, gerbergear.com). This stainless steel mini-tool weighs only one ounce, is about the size of your pinkie finger, and comes with a knife blade, two screwdriver heads, a file, and a bottle opener — all of which lock into place. It even has a carabiner-style clip for attaching the Curve to backpack or a set of house keys. Small can be beautiful.
