Tweezers for me.  Harder to improvise, compared to the toothpick.  I really don't use toothpicks often, though I like the idea of tucking one in my wallet. :tu:

You're talking about toothpicks here as if you're out in the wild, with nothing else to do but whittle a toothpick. I could whittle a fork and spoon too, but that doesn't mean it is practical to do.

When you need a toothpick, you need it within seconds, without a branch at hand, just like when you need a fork or spoon for eating or a pen for writing.

I'm not necessarily talking about whittling, though out in the wild this is also true. 

The first thing that popped into my head, I have a bundle of small zip ties in my bag, the pointy end is almost the same shape/size as a SAK toothpick.

I think it's just that I don't use toothpicks often.  I might have different standards if I did.

SAK toothpicks come to a much finer point than zip ties. Zip ties wouldn't fit between your teeth where they would need to. Really can't substitute one for the other.

I have some pretty small ones that work for me, or I just have big gaps in my teeth :D  Just saying what works for me.

Thats why you use the knife and sharpen it to be pointier  :salute:

My teeth must be jammed tight cuz I can think of only a handful of times in my life Ive ever needed a toothpick.  Eating popcorn does it but generally its just not a problem I need a tool to solve.

PM me or email sakmodder [at] gmail . com if you are looking for custom SAK work.

Lucky. I get food stuck in my teeth every single time I eat anything.

The SAK toothpick can be used to undo nylon zip-ties by sliding it in between the strap and the ratchets. The tweezers can be a tuning fork. (from The SAK Owner's Manual)
It sure is true that you can carve a toothpick easier than you can carve a tweezers.
