Use #17 for a Pocket Knife: Cut a Pill in Half

Pill on a blue backgroundWhile traveling one of my kids gets car sick, requiring a mild medication that we split in half due to her small size and young age.


I used my small all-metal truck pocket knife (I keep stored in a change bin/cubby to the left of the instrument panel) for this process as the small squarish blade works well to split the tiny motion sickness pill.  Invariable one half of the pill gets mangled which makes this process a bit tricky.
