    Found this in a drawer after my Dad passed away in 2010...pretty sure he picked it up on leave when he visited Switzerland after the war..I have a bigger version with enough attachments to survive a zombie apocalypse.

    pa bought me one for bday, ...1976?
    loved it. very handy.
    but the screw came out of the scissors. i have been toting a minuscule scissor blade for 25 years.
    where can i find the screw that holds scissor blade, and how do i prevent it from happening again
