  • The Kind of Men Who Carry Pocketknives

    Yep

    I’d often ask, “Daddy, do you have your pocketknife?” just to hear his response, “I got my pants on, don’t I?”

    Pocket knives, the plural is correct because you need at least two folding knives. A heavy duty blade for cleaning battery terminal, cutting rope or whittling wood. Then you need a surgical clean knife for big and little splinters, or cutting your steak at a restaurant when you decide the "steak knife" is so dull it won't cut soft butter.

      Or a multi tool neatly stored with your roadside/emergency tool kit under the rear folding seat.

          How many knives do you carry at the same time? I usually have a Victorinx Tinker, a Case or Buck Stockman, and a Kershaw assisted opener and a EMT knife with seat belt/ clothing cutter, window breaker and and a Kershaw Shuffle in the watch pocket. I've got a small 2' multifunction tool that I carry because it has needle nose pliers which are handy to get a broken bulb out of a socket on the car.
          There are times when I carry a 7" KaBar or a Buck 119 Special or even a Cold Steel Trailmaster Bowie.
          I haven't been stopped by a cop in about 40 years, but I hope COPS is filming when they ask if I'm carrying a knife.

            Today... I have a Massdrop/Ferrum Forge Gent in my pocket (which is exchanged for others frequently) and a Leatherman squirt on my key chain. My other set of keys has a SAK on it. I feel nekked without a pocket knife.
