Pocket Knives - Do You Carry One? [View all]

I do. It's a Schrade Old Timer three-blade stockman's knife. It's in my pants pocket unless I'm flying on a plane or have to go through security at the courthouse. I use it, on average, once a day to do things like open taped-up cardboard boxes, clean my fingernails or cut something that needs to be cut. I've been carrying a knife like that since I was 12 years old, and when I was 12 years old, it was OK to carry a pocket knife, even at school.



So, do you carry a knife in your pocket or in your purse?
