However, I feel about knives like I feel about ABS. I don't want to be in the midst of a crash to realize my brake fluid is low.
I happen to be one of those "knives are tools" guys in my philosophy. I have one of the best knives ever made, the Emerson HD-7. I cut UPS boxes, blue painters tape and thread. You could make a very good case in opining that I carry too much knife.
However, there might be a time when I have to slice a radiator hose, or cut someone's shirt from spinning machinery.
And sadly, the world is full of predators.
