Thanks for the comment James. I haven't read the book but my oiipnon is that they changed it for dramatic purposes. When you see him, at the beginning of the movie, reaching for the Swiss knife and leaving without it you get that he is gonna need it later and that he almost had it, increases the drama. I don't think it would have made a lot of difference and I don't know what kind of Swiss Army knife Aron Ralston had but I am the proud owner of one and I take it everywhere I go, and mine has a no-joke saw in it which would have come in handy in the bone situation, it has 2 blades and the large one is sharp as a scalpel.Also, I didn't think he used a smaller blade to cut his arm I thought it was the large blade just worn down after all the chipping.
