Do you carry a pocket knife with you wherever you go?

I have carried this knife for the past twenty years!

I grew up in a blue collar family. When I was a young boy, receiving my first pocket knife was a rite of passage. It meant that I was trusted and also that I was expected to start becoming competent and useful to myself and others. I have carried a pocket knife since I was a child. In those days, having a pocket knife at school was not a crime and it was even expected of us.

I now work in a professional position and many of my colleagues do not share my blue collar background. I sometimes get called a "redneck" because I carry a pocket knife on me, but I don't pay much attention to others who call me names. However, there are times when a pocket knife has been very handy and I have been glad that I had it in my possession.

Most men who carry a pocket knife carry it because it is a useful tool, not because it could be used as a weapon. I have never had the occasion to rely on my pocket knife a a defensive weapon and I don't know of anyone who has ever had that experience. If it is considered as a defensive weapon, it is not a strong weapon to have. If it is considered as an offensive weapon, it is an even weaker weapon. If it is considered as a tool, it is very handy.
