I feel pretty naked without a knife. Luckily it's rare that i go somewhere without one. Of course I've been known to improvise a cutting implement if one is needed and not around. Not to mention i always have a diamond stone in my pocket so i can put an edge on whatever needs it. And they say diamonds are a girls best friend. Apparently those people don't sharpen knives with them. I may not wear diamonds the way most people do but i usually have some in my pocket. I've also purchased certain models in case I'm going somewhere with knife restrictions and usually check the knife laws in places i plan to travel to prevent instances of knife withdrawals.
