After I was infected by the need for a Cash Can, I noticed that SunshineProductsUSA also carries metal toothpicks. Although I usually have a wooden one either with me or close by, I've wanted a metal one for a while. They're quite handy for all sorts of tasks, such as removing o-rings from my flashlights and resetting my PDA and wireless mouse, beside the usual tooth duties. I couldn't make up my mind on whether to get one in stainless steel or copper, so I ended up with both. Thanks to SSP-USA for help in adding the SS one to my existing order! O0 Like the Cash Can, the craftsmanship is excellent. Dimensions are approximately the same as a standard round toothpick - 2.5" x 0.09". They are perfectly straight and symmetrical, with no machine marks at all. The copper one has a slightly smaller diameter. Both weigh 1.9 gms. I really like have only a single tapered end. The 4 notches in the non-tapered end make it quite easy to grip. Plus, in an emergency, they would be perfect for using fishing line or such to lash them to sticks for snares and such. They would also allow turning the toothpick into a make-shift needle, if you have some thread handy. While these toothpicks aren't sharp like a needle, the point is small enough that I pushed one under my skin acidentally. If you want a sharp point, any fishhook sharpener should get these sharp with very little effort. I was also tempted to get a holder, but what I really wanted was something with an extremely small footprint. After thinking and tinkering, I grew a bit frustrated. All I wanted was a thin sleeve, like the wrappers that single toothpicks come in. ¼" heat shrink to the rescue! Now, the only question is whether to keep them in my wallet, or the knife-slot of my Victorinox Swisscard.
