If you weren't aware (and we weren't before today!), a "Texas Toothpick" doesn't not refer to a teeny piece of wood perfect for teeth cleaning after a meal. In the instance of this Case Yellow Handle Small Texas Toothpick ($30), it refers to a 3-inch surgical steel blade attached to a sleek yellow base. And though we're not really in the habit of carrying around a pocket knife, we do think it's important to have one. They're especially handy on hiking and camping trips, of which we have a few more planned before the end of summer.
