Re: Who carries a pocket knife regularly?

Always carry a lightweight Gerber with locking blade. Leathermans in both vehicles along with Marine combat knifes, rope and survival backpack. Have CCW permit also and check the weapon in my baggage whenever I fly in the States. Have printed material on all state firearms laws. Can't be too carefull.

Re: Who carries a pocket knife regularly?

I have always carried a small pocket knife, but lately I have been traveling so much for work that it is sitting on the coffee table instead of hanging from my keychain.

I know how it is! I've been a 'gatherer' of knives since I was in Cub Scouts way back when!

I almost always carry a pocket knife of some sort. Prefer 'lock-blades' by far! Prefer Case over all other brands. Also, I normally carry a box-cutter with me, since I'm always having to open something or another.

I carry a Leatherman in the car, and have them stashed throughout the house, garage, and shed.....since ya never know when you'll need one!

Also have the handy-dandy USMC combat knife for the great outdoors, and other adventures....best money I ever spent in a military surplus store!!!

And I have an assortment of buck knives, 'butterfly' knives, machetes, bayonets, and that sort of thing. As well as old butcher knives and cleavers, some of which that I use in the garden.

Did I happen to mention that I really like sharp objects!!! ( )

Re: Who carries a pocket knife regularly?

I used to carry a military surplus US Marines folding pocket knife. I stopped carrying it because it was bumping my cell phone in my pocket and scratching it up and turning on the speakerphone option. My wife used to tease me and call it my redneck knife. She also had no problem *always* asking me for it, too. I used it mostly for opening packages. It is very dull so I don't cut myself. I got it new for $3.00.

Re: Who carries a pocket knife regularly?

Hey Mike, I have several of those knives. In the Air Force, we call them CTK knives because they're common items found in an Air Force aircraft mechanic's CTK, or "Consolidated Tool Kit". They're not worth a whole lot monetarily, as you mentioned paying $3 for yours, but when you need a knife, they come in handy. I've got a couple I've had for 30 years, and also 2 or 3 that are still new in the plastic from much more recently. I guess the manufacturer has been around a good while. Who knows, maybe even as far back as the Korean War. I know for sure they were around during Vietnam.

Marty

Re: Who carries a pocket knife regularly?

Phwhew, I thought it was just me that had the "disease".

Guys in my unit in the Corps used to make fun of me because I'd pick up a new knife at almost every foreign place we went. Something would be just a little bit different and I would have to have it. Traded most away over the years.

Favorites right now are my LLBean Swiss Army knife carried every day everywhere, the Leatherman that I leave in the motorcycle's toolkit, and my Norwegian reindeer farmer's knife (1/8" thick x 2" wide x 10" long blade) for camping.

Re: Who carries a pocket knife regularly?

Yep

Ever since Cub Scouts - had varying knife collections - the last one went in Katrina. Now have one single blade pocket knife(Ace Hardware generic) on a spare keychain.

heh heh heh - sooner or later the bug will hit again and the number of knives will grow. .

Re: Who carries a pocket knife regularly?

Leatherman all the time...never take it off and I use it many many times a day - a very useful tool on a farm. Although currently I am without mine as the TSA man took it away when I tried to go thru the airport security with it on .

Thats what happens when you "never take it off"...you forget its there...oh well, new one should be here soon....

Pop had a saying for everything. One in his repertoire was, "I have a pocket knife older than that."

Re: Who carries a pocket knife regularly?

Now that I don't fly every week - I have my Kershaw silver spur ll on my key chain - great little knife I use often.

As most here I have leatherman type "tools" in the ATV, Jeep, truck and bike. You never know when you'll need em!

Hmmm - my 'most fancy' a Charles Dake went in Katrina - a fella who had a shop about 8-10 miles down the road.

Re: Who carries a pocket knife regularly?

been wearing a Leatherman for about the last 10 years ... broke the tip in 2 of the knives; sooo I paid MORE for a Gerber look-alike. Blades don't lock on the Gerber and the pliers are not needle nose ... so back to the broken Leatherman.

Have you written to Leatherman? They might just replace those blades for you for free, especially if you tell them you've been carrying it for ten years. Cold Steel replaced the polymer handle on my knife when the formed pocket clip broke off, free.
