Being a high school teacher can make keeping a good knife on my person…problematic. The days of showing off and trading pocket knives at school are long gone.

Very true, Jim. I’ve carried a folder for decades and feel naked without one. Now, some venues in my region will deny you entry to an event if you are carrying a blade longer than 2.5″. How do they know you have a blade? They are beginning to use hand-held metal detectors and wand those entering.
