    I usually have one in my purse.

    Where I live, it's not likely I'll have to use it for self-defense, but it's better to be safe than sorry. And it's good for cutting fruit in a pinch, lol.

    Almost everywhere. I am kind of a knife nut,

    I collect a lot of high end knives. My two current favorites are my Zero Tolerance 0300 and my discontinued Boker Albatros. Such cool knives. What do you carry?

    Learn To Use It.

    It has always annoyed me how people will carry a knife and not know how to use it. Just because you carry a weapon does not make you dangerous, it makes you a fool if you do not know how to use it. Let me give a example. One day I had gotten in a argument with a friend's ex, he...

    Always Have

    i have always carried a pocket knife. you never know when you might need it. i used it at work quite a lot. now it is a little security, but not from other people. my pocket knife is way sharp. and when days are really bad i always have a way to reduce the pain.

    Two Usually

    I generally carry two. The first is the one pictured in the group icon. A Spyderco Endura 4. I love their knives. They're made in Japan and I still think the Japanese have some great skills when it comes to manufacturing blades. This particular knife is very thin, has a blade...
