Do you carry Pocket Knife with u? My eyes are on this Pocket Knife ..Is it cool to try?
Used to for a while, but haven't for years now.
Will be getting a new knife soon, 'cause last one is in quite a bit of disrepair. Would like to get this. But will probably get this.
I've always got a knife with me.
Does this count?
Used to, before 9-11. Now, government security officers think you're a terrorist if you have a Swiss Army Knife.
No need too for me. Might you consider a poll?
Yeah, I carry a S&W Black Ops...it's big but it comes in handy a lot more than you'd think.
By the way, was that extra "yo" too much to type out?
As far as you use your knives for self-defence, everything is cool. It's just scary that people carry knives around with them at the streets. You don't know when somebody decides to stab you. Every day there's at least one piece of news where somebody is being stabbed.
My newest two. I consider them to be tools. Yes, they could be weapons, but so could screwdrivers and hammers.
I usually have mine with me. Currently, I'm carrying this one:
Assisted opening is very handy.
Always on me via a belt holster:
Got this in blue for fun on a neck lanyard when I don't have my belt on:
Anyone else find it odd that the link posted in the Original Post was priced.. a little random?
Since when does a sale mean more expensive base price?
Yes I do.
There are a lot of variations of the Swiss Army Knife~sorta ranges from "mini" to "Pro"
I yeah I always have one~usually a Gerber..
I'd be careful about doing that in England.
One of my hiking buddies takes a knife with him, and for a time I wanted to. But There was never any need. Not even whilst hiking.
CRKT makes nice knives and tools. I've been using this for a while:
Mostly used for digging holes, prying stuff, cutting lines, occasional sausage and block of cheese. I like the little finger guard b/c I'm pretty clumsy. I've been thinking about dumping it because it's got that overtly military look.
I keep a Pink Swiss Army knife with me. Usually for the scissors and nail file.
I usually have an original Leatherman PST in my back pocket and / or a Mini Swiss Champ on a keyring.
I used to carry a lock-knife but then I found out it was illegal to carry in the UK. The law here is you can carry a non locking folder with blade of three inches without giving a good reason. If you carry anything bigger, or with a locking or fixed blade you need to have a good reason for it. My folding lock blades were less than 3 inches and I thought a good reason for having a locking blade was so the blade doesn't shut on my fingers, but then I found out that wasn't a good legal reason, so the lock blades stay at home. Quite like the look of the Spyerderco UKPK but it is a bit pricey.
My leatherman has stood up to over 10 years of use and abuse.
This knife has gone almost everywhere with me since I was 11. I feel like I'm missing a limb if I ever forget it, so incredibly useful.
The blades need sharpening, and the spring on the scissors gave up some 10 years ago, but I'll never get rid
However, I can't understand why so many people find it necessary to to carry around a flip out type knife, I can't imagine many situations where one would be useful...
That's the other thing. Remember when it was normal for a boy to carry a small pocketknife?
I think it depends on how organized you are. I'm the kind of guy who tries not to think ahead too much and I'm always ending up in situations where I'm holding something and THEN need the tool. For this reason, I prefer the one handed opening Gerber multitools.
The other thing is that most of "flip out knives," as you call them, have locking blades, which is a huge safety advantage over the old style pocket knives.
Leatherman "Charge TTI"..........
I carry this with me at all times.
The Sword of Power is hardly just a "knife", citizen.
