you have had multiple instances where you have had to use a 5 inch fixed blade knife? you probably should make changes in how you live your life.

That's actually not a bad idea at all. Humour can dissolve a lot of tense situations.
Were I confronted in a threatening manner I would promise to bleed all over them if they got rough.

Back to the original thread question... my signature item(s) are hats. Fedoras in cold weather and a nice Panama hat in summer.

Also, I don't wander into CE much anymore. Too many of the "Obama is an alien sent from outer space to turn the nation into a muslin facisim!" types in there.

Are you surprised?

Your made in USA right-wingers are the best in the world ...

They're genuinely insane.

LMFAO. You do realize that if you pull a gun or knife on a mugger, you're more likely to get hurt and not less, right? More likely to scare him into shooting or stabbing or what have you.

And honestly, do you really live in such a dangerous environment that muggers are a real, probable, daily threat?

For the record, I'm not against gun ownership whatsoever. I am very pro 2nd amendment. I just don't see an actual need to carry in public. I'm not saying it should be illegal; I'm saying that only weirdos and paranoids seem to do it. I would consider "protection against muggers" to be at best wildly naive and at worst nutty/paranoid.

... and you are being very polite and politically correct.

gonna have to agree with DC. to the exception of one good friend of mine who is well skilled in self defense, anyone else i know who pulled a weapon ended up getting hurt worse. if you dont know exactly what to do and how to stay calm you are probably going to make things worse for yourself.

Already been answered, but I might chip in as well. I carry mine to cut of loose threads, cut open boxes, open letters, open bottles/cans, etcetera. It has it's uses, perhaps not every day but 3-4 times a week at the very least.

+ if I get bored, I start sawing wood-things with it. Oh the joys a man can get from sawing things!
