Over at a little blog called The Art of Manliness, they have an interesting post: Every Man Should Carry a Pocket Knife. Here’s an excerpt:
1st Century Romans created the first folding pocket knife. They made for easy carrying for soldiers and other explorers on their journeys and conquests. However, as the use of sheathed knives became more popular, the use of pocket knives fell somewhat into disfavor.
By the late 16th Century, pocket knives began to regain popularity. They were especially popular in the American colonies. From farmers to lawyers, men from all walks of life started to carry them. The ultimate portable tool, the pocket knife was a useful aid in various tasks, including eating on the go.
My EDC knife is a Spyderco Delica4 Flat Ground FRN. I consider it to be the best combination of least expensive and high quality in a Spyderco knife.
What’s your EDC knife (or firearm)?
