    Ahhhhhhh ! one tool for a first aid kits that is very handy and takes up no space is a Leatherman Micra . Its main tool is scissors , it also has a very robust pair of fold out tweezers , unlike the junky swiss army knife tweezers . It also has a small but VERY sharp scalpel type blade . check ebay for micra lots , sometimes you can get several rather cheaply …….friends and family love to get these things as they are small and handy .

    • It’s hard to go wrong with any Leatherman multi-tool. And you’re right that something like a mini multi-tool would be a great addition for a medical kit.

    This as far as I know is a grey area ……but I order some meds online . If your not in a hurry , this cuts the BS by avoiding the crappy system we have . No Doctor visit , no ins. company , the government , etc. just order the quantity and pay …..delivered to your door , no questions asked . just sayin.
