    Nobody appears to be trying to force their philosophical or political ideologies on anyone here. The OP asked if people carry a pocket knife and if so, what kind.

    Yes, some of us carry knives. Some for utility, some for self-defense. I personally have knives for both occasions and carry what I need, when I need it. I'd love to be able to travel through my city without having to worry about my own safety. Unfortunately, the local police department is utterly useless.... If you're forced to call 911 for police, it'll be 30-45 minutes before they bother to respond. That's the reality that some of us live with....

    We all live in different areas of the world under different circumstances. The best way to learn about different parts of the world, is to talk to people that live in those places. If you ever decide to travel to other countries, you'll know what to expect and where to avoid.

    And now the thread has gone political.....

    Actually it was just a joke based on his coffee cup and that awful ragged pad. If YOU want to complain and FORCE a political issue, you go right ahead. I'm not.

    Yes, that's why I stated that I don't carry one, and that's the end of anything I could add of quality. That's why I don't want to say anymore, and don't need to say anymore. :)

    Just as it is your right to carry a knife or gun according to your laws :)
    Like I said, to each their own, I can't take away the evil boys' weapons in your parts, so I wouldn't think about taking those of citizens who have theirs rightfully as well.

    Just mentioning it, Vienna, the capital of Austria, is more or less thinking about making the city a weapons free zone, with no knives or guns allowed. Probably only a publicity stunt though.

    Hey I totally agree with you, but a man or woman should be able to defend themselves. There a lot of nutjobs out there.

    Looks like a nice knife. Certainly appears sturdy. Is it carbon-steel or stainless? Good luck with it either way.

    [OFFTOPIC] We appear to have similar tastes in mice and keyboards. Not so much in mousepads, I keep my bottle of Jack Daniels in the bottom drawer of my desk, however, so as to maintain at least the illusion of lady-like behavior. [/OFFTOPIC]

    Yeah it's time to get a new mousepad, I've spilled to many drinks on it over the last few years :p The knife is all stainless with a blackwash finish, very sturdy, and very sharp right out of the box. Just the tip alone will shave hair off your arm.

    [OFFTOPIC] Cheers to you my fellow whiskey drinker!

    I always have a knife on me. I use it quite a bit but more because of my job than anything. I also just like having it on me, knives have so many uses it's crazy. I don't think of my knife for self defense except as a last resort as I carry a pistol for that purpose. I also go hiking and camping quite a bit so knives are a no brainer.

    Damn this thing is sharp! I was oiling the blade and mechanism and accidentally got nicked by the point on my thumb and bled for nearly 30 minutes! This is a good thing though, it means it can easily take down people who are a potential risk to public safety which is why I bought it. **** I'm still bleeding! Guess it's time to bust out the paper towels and tape. I'll be all right. Great budget knife!

    I'd probably go see a doctor and ask why I hadn't stopped bleeding for almost half an hour from a little nick on my thumb

    And then a psychiatrist and ask why I want to stab people

    I think he's trying to imply it's super sharp. A clean cut bleeds longer than a ragged one. But yeah, anything more than 5 minutes bleeding... he might think about reducing his daily intake of rat poison... those old wives tales...:eek:

    Yeah it was a very clean cut and deeper than I thought , but I'm totally fine. And no I don't want to stab people, it's for self defense and defense of others if the situation should ever arise.
