I hope I never need show anyone....
I carry a utility knife. Have for years. Use it almost everyday.
When I referred to my EDC I meant my EDC knife. I've never brought a knife to a gun fight LOL. I keep a knife avaialbe in pretty much every room because they come in handy.I keep a weapon in the room when I'm watching TV or whatever I'm doing at night...including sleeping.
Not gun related but it may keep me from shooting someone someday. We put in some Ring cameras and, let me tell ya, you can't hide from them. They pick up EVERYTHING including spiders and have an 8 point buck pic it took in the backyard. I've a Ring believer.
Being the cruel person I am, I had to put the chipmunk electrocuter back beside the driveway. They are getting in my garage without permission. With four D cell batteries and sunflower seeds for bait, they walk over a powered plate and get the hot foot. They carry diseases just like tree rats do. Caught one of those yesterday in the trap. No, I don't belong to PETA. Chipmunks are rampant this year but not squirrels. Go figure. They see me in the sunroom......
So, yes, I use a knife for something or another everyday.
you really need a tool tote. Lite and useful tools that you would normally use. I run service calls all the time and a meter and a couple of hand tools can get the job done for the most part.The knife is there when I need it, and I don't have to walk down and get my tool cart
