I saw one of these in a sporting goods store today.  Anyone have any thoughts on them?  It was listed at $35... seemed a bit pricey.

I have the full sized one- it was used but I paid $20 for it.  I don;t think I'd pay $35 for the small one...

Big one is kinda neat though.

The MiniBuck is a cute little tool, but it isn't very practical. The handles and pliers are too small, even smaller than a Micra. Of all the blades, only the pen knife might have any usefulness.

I keep thinking I'd like to get one to toss in my hiking pack.  It could be really useful.

I like the small tools for all kinds of things.  They are great to hang from a carabiner on a zipper of a pack or belt loop.  The CrossGrip I think is going with me on my next outdoor adventure....

The little Buck would be good for that, but take along a full-size multi too.

Of course... I'd more likely forget my pants than my multi!  That's why I like the belt sheath...

Don't forget, Buck also produced the middle-sized BuckLite Tool.
