If you don't carry one why not?

Not sure why but I'm noticing more and more people (all ages) not carrying pocket knives. Got me wondering why.

I would have to walk out the door without my pants on to not be carrying my knife.

I feel necked if i dont have at least one. I feel weard when around a male that dose not have a knife on him. Like there is something wrong with him. Kind of like being around a gay man its just off and creepy.

I carry a 3"-4" knife kinfe on my keys and a multi tool. Plus the glock.

Heck even the wife has a key chain knif and k bar in the vehical. And a 380 on her and 12g with 00 buck in the vehical.

Folks that know me know not to ask to borrow. I'm liable to empty my pockets and give multiple choices.

Always carry one, just have to be careful to remember to take it out for some of the businesses and institutions I have to frequent for my job.

I always have one but carry cheap ones as I tend to lose them fairly often.

Been asked a lot if I carry a pocket knife. I always respond by asking them if deer die on the road?

I've "donated" a few knifes to TSA.

They are allowed in your checked bags though.

Been carrying a knife since I was 10 years old I reckon.
When I was a kid guys carried knives to school , Nuttin was ever said abt it.

I don't go into prisons, or jails, our court house just walk through the detector then wand you. When they see the belt and have you pull up your pant legs and dont see a ankle hoster or visiable boot knife they wave you through.

I onky go the the court house to pay taxes or get a permit for somethin like new septic.

Always 2, a small fixed blade and a assisted opening pocket knife with the pocket clip (ZT). I use a knife at work quite a bit, one handed operation is convenient to me.

I feel naked without one too.

I've always carried one even in school (until schools banned them and guns).

door check , wallet , knife , keys , phone , gun , flashlight

it just feels wrong to not have a knife

got one of my co-workers to start carrying a knife several years ago , he quickly realized when he didn't have ti how he would struggle with some stupid little package or something to get it open vs when he had his knife it was zip zip done.

I carried a knife in school also

I find myself not necessarily carrying a pocket knife but a fixed blade belt knife a fair amount

America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.
