No, it obviously would not be first my choice in cutlery to defend against a horde of zombies. It is though savagely thin and pointy. This would without a doubt be my first choice to remove a deeply embedded splinter.  I'm not sure you could make a functional pocket knife blade much thinner than this. So seeing as it will never be used for anything other than light duty cutting, I ground the bevel down holding the spine a millimeter off the stone. Now you can barely rest a thumb on the edge without getting cut. Truly savage :viking:

And your point?
Sorry, couldn't resist. I do like the belly on these Wengers.

Here's an example of why having a savagely thin blade can be useful

I needed to remove the sheathing from this flash trigger cable for a project I'm working on for my wife's photo studio.

The sheathing is some kind of very tough vinyl-like material and as I tried to strip it the usual way I just wasn't making any progress. If I pressed too hard I would likely damage the internal wires. So the solution was to use the savage  :viking: Wenger small blade and slide it down lengthwise against the cable. This produced a very thin sliver of cable sheathing. On the second pass the internal wires became visible and I was able to split the sheathing with a fingernail and pull it back and cut if off. Having a super-thin, super-sharp knife made this task much easier and controllable.
