    It was the online order pickup area and I am happily married so neither possible intention registered with me lol.

    The swiss pocket knife is a classic. I use to have one when I was younger. It was one of though knives that was great for every situation. It had a A blade, a pair of scissors, a nail file, a toothpick, a pair of tweezers, and a ballpoint pen. Since I lost it I never really carry a pocket knife with me anymore.

It was a decent looking manual open knife with a bleached bone handle so it wasnt too technical or tactical. I was surprised by the appreciation.

    Santa brought me the Kershaw Chive. I like it. It's currently clipped into the fifth pocket of my jeans, as a test to decide if I want to remove the clip or not.

    Recently switched from a Leatherman Skeletool to a Leatherman Squirt PS4 as my main pocketknife. I mostly use it to cut open boxes and use the wire cutters occasionally at work so I didn’t really need the bulk of the bigger tool.

    I use to carry a Spyderco Endura 4 all the time and then stopped when I was trying to streamline what I carry in my pockets.
    I should really start carrying it again as I frequently regret its absence.

They're all still razor sharp ... the guy knew how to sharpen a knife.
    same for me. Well, not the collection. I only have 1 of his unfortunately. But he always carried those things as well.

    same thing here. Its really more of an on demand hiking bag with some extras for long term emergency supplies. Its nice to be like "you want to go on a hike?" and be already prepared.

    A bag you keep in your car that has all the supplies you would need to get home in case of an emergency. I keep one because I tend to wander down dirt roads and sometimes we go off road. It also functions well as a spontaneous hiking bag.

    another term you may hear is the bug out bag. thats usually a bigger bag people keep at home that has all the supplies they would need in case they have to leave in a hurry. Some people pack it almost as a weekend road trip bag. some people go doomsday prepper. I dont have one of those.
