I have one of those cheapie Jeep knives in the console of the truck. It keep it there for the glass breaker as well. I picked it up at Big 5 for something like twelve bucks some years back.

I am not sure when I did not carry a pocket knife. Atleast 42 years. 13 years old when away from middle school. Went through high school wearing a 4" case. Now a SOG Flash II.

I'm a lady and I carry two in my purse; a little 1-1/2 folder I picked up somewhere that is great for cutting string, those dang plastic "strings" on merchandise, envelopes, and things like that. I also carry a 4" folder (one that someone gave hubby, a Tater Hill made in China). Not the best knife in the world but holds an edge well and comes in handy for "bigger" problems!

Been carrying pocketknives for around 66 years---think I got my first one when I was nine. We all carried them to school and nobody thought anything about it, because they were seen as tools everyone needed, and not weapons.

There isn't enough money in the developed world to pay me to go back to being a kid in today's culture, even knowing what I know now. Especially knowing what I know now. FAR too scary out there.

Never trust a woman who doesn't carry a knife, I always say. If she also carries a gun, so much the better. It tells me she has a realistic view of life's challenges and opportunities, and is probably pretty damn smart.

Women used to wear hats and held them on with huge hatpins which doubled as very nasty weapons.
I date back to when carrying a knife was a normal thing for a kid to do. I rarely do not carry a knife. Usually my very flat Buck lock blade folder. It is only 9/32" thick with a 2.5" blade.

I carry a leatherman at work and my Benchmade torrent when not at work. I also carry a Glock field knife (with saw) in my vehicle.

Grew up playing with my papas pocket knives. Saw my dad always carried a little one in his front pocket. I've been carrying one everyday since i was about 14. Except in school, they had some stupid rules. Right now I have a Kershaw clipped on my back pocket.
