Saw this article via Insty, and had to add my thoughts.
Who are the kind of men who still carry pocketknives? They are the type of men who earn an honest living, work hard and stand fearless in a world gone mad. To put it simply, they are the type of men the world could use a lot more of these days.
To me, this whole idea is such a “duh” situation that I can barely articulate it.
Of course every man — not just the ones in the quote — should carry a pocket knife (and even more than one, maybe) on their belt or in their pocket [sic]. I for one cannot imagine leaving the house without a knife on me — as the writer’s father said, “I’m wearing pants, aren’t I?” — and other than when boarding a flight (don’t get me started) I can’t remember when last I went knife-less out of the house. (Yeah, I carried a knife even in Britishland, where it’s streng verboten, sorry P.C. Plod.)
Sheesh… next thing we’ll be talking about men not needing cars or trucks*.
*with apologies to the urbanites, who like me when I used to live in downtown Chicago, don’t need one.
