You just have to wear a watch every day. Does that also include a knife in your pocket?

A few Sundays back, I attended my brother's church. He was sitting next to me fiddling with his tie to keep himself from dozing off. He noticed a stray thread and quietly nudged me, "Hey...you have a knife?" Me?...of course I did! I produced my Case Tuxedo and handed it to him. He opened up the pen blade and neatly cut the thread. Upon handing the knife back to me he whispered, "Nice knife!" Yeah...I saved the day in style!

If I don't wear a watch daily, I might as well be wearing nothing. I feel the same way if my right pocket doesn't have one of my pocket knives stuffed into it. Do you also carry a knife daily to accompany your watch? Is this something you also feel compelled to do?

For work, every day I have a backpack, and yes, it has a leatherman that I regularly find myself using.

Outside if that, I have too many pocket knives, and while I lIke the idea of carrying one for utility purposes, not protection, I simply dislike clutter in my pocket. I’ve tried a bunch. I’ve managed to eliminate all keys (except my car fob) and my wallet is as thin as one can possibly be.

I need a tiny knife. 

I used to carry a normal-sized pocket knife, but had to run back to the car/hotel too many times. 

I generally do not now.

Being Swiss, I’m not allowed to ever be without a knife. Then again, why would you.

I don’t leave the house without at least a good watch, knife, and flashlight.

I own a Gerber Micro Lite for when you don't even want to feel a knife. That might be right up your alley. It's a little single-bladed dynamo.

Yeah, totally. I don't carry my Leatherman Skeletool, SOG Paratool or even my Spyderco much at all any more because they are too big. One awesome sauce knife I love that is only three inches long and weighs 1.8 ounces is the Old Timer Middleman. It's pictured above and I think it's the Bull's nuts for sure.

Now that's what I like to hear! I have opened many a can with my Victorinox soldier's knife!

Yeah, I still carry my Mini Mag a lot that I bought way back in 1988. Still haven't had to replace the bulb with the spare😂

I carry a military grade multitool, small tape measure, 2 inch folder and Victorinox utility card with multiple useful tools. And a 1 inch titanium stinger on my key ring. I guess 4 knives now i think about it. Construction needs tools.

I like the utility card. I have a blue one.

Have one of those and a few other smaller ones, very handy, but still not entirely comfortable to keep in pocket.

Yep and while I don’t bother trying to match my watch with my clothes I’ll quite often try to match it with my knife.

Victorinox Swiss Army Cyber Tool.  My server room tool kit, cork screw, bottle opener, scissors and, of course, knife.  Sadly, they don't seem to make it anymore.  Gift from a former employer which I've had for quite a long time.

I carry one in my work bag and as I'm nearly always at work, yeah I definitely carry one. So handy and I always get comments from my fellow work mates when I produce a knife in times of need, the call me the Boy Scout as I'm always prepared 🤣

Knife carrying is problematic where I live, since the law is largely focused on the intent of the person carrying the knife, and not so much on the type of the knife carried, resulting in a grey area of what is legal. So no, I hardly ever carry a knife, or if so, mostly around the house and the yard.
