    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...
