< 101 - "Who [the hell] carries a knife all the time?"

I carry a knife all the time.  Many people do.

A gentleman should always carry a knife.

Why?  They're incredibly useful tools.

Knives, in my opinion, are one of the most basic EDC items.  For many, the decision to carry a knife marks a transition into the EDC mindset.

I'm not sure all the origins of the question, but many who ask seem to feel that a knife is principally a weapon.  No, I don't carry a knife to stab people...

There's nothing "weird" or "wrong" about carrying a knife.  There is, however, something weird in chastising what others carry.


  1. You're absolutly right, Jason!
    In the region that i come from, in Portugal, it's completly normal for a man to carry a pocket knife.

  2. I've carried a pocket knife most of my life and feel that putting one in my pocket is as natural as carrying a pen!

  3. If i have pants on, i have a pocket knife or multitool, a flashlight and a pen. I'll make sure i have them before i'd grab my phone. Been doing such since i was 16, 17 years ago.

    I'd rather have it and not need it, then need it and not have it. Knives as you understand are primarily a tool, secondarily used as a weapon.

    Great blog, just started checking it out.
