From Appalachian Magazine:
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.
None of the men I know think a pocket knife is a weapon, nor would they ever attempt to use it as as a weapon. They consider it a handy tool for cutting, tearing or opening things the easy way instead of risking serious damage to your teeth.
The kind of pocket knife that has a flat blade screw driver and a Phillips head is a very good thing to have handy. Just the other day I pulled on the handle to a locker in the men’s locker room at my athletic club, and the handle came off in my hand. No problem, I used the screwdriver blade on my pocket knife to tightly screw it back in place and went about locking my clothes in the locker and heading into the gym for a workout.
Carrying a screwdriver around in my pocket would be weird.
