I'm a complete knife knut, an entire room in my house is devoted to my knife collection. Knives are a big part of how I make a living as well, since I sell lots of custom knives as well as some production ones at my store.

Most of the general public seems to think that the average knife user is a punk who'll only carry one as a weapon to attack hard working folks. I deal with that missconception everyday, and I try to do my best to prove them wrong.

Anyway, I know I'm preaching to the choir like Mark F said, so there's no sense in me ranting on and on about how useful knives and multitools are.

Check out Knife Rights - Home it's a sort of NRA for knives, it was started by Doug Ritter (you might now him for his colaborations with Benchmade or from his website EQUIPPED TO SURVIVE - Outdoors Gear, Survival Equipment Review & Survival Information).

I have carried a knife all my life. When I moved to FL I found out that there are rules about knives, size, style yada yada. This was pointed out by a fellow (puss) worker when I drug out my Kershaw and employed the assisted open to clean my nails.

Later I checked into the law and found out that I probably was not in compliance.

More research showed that the FL CCW license covers knives. That's why it's called a Concealed Carry Weapons license.

I do not trust a government that does not trust me to carry a gun or knife without violating my privacy, yet doesn't hesitate to send me a bill each April 15th to pay for that distrust!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Default You got to be kidding?

Cane, are you saying you need a CCW to carry a pocket knife in FLA now? Sure glad that wasn't the case in the 70's when I roamed the swamps of SW FLA. Hell in 68, at the ripe age of 14, I rode down the street, on the way to the dump, with a Marlin 39A across the handlebars of my bicycle,with my trusty dog in tow HA!!
