My dad never left the house without his keys, a pen, and a pocketknife. I recall him swiftly offering to open packages, cut string, or remove splinters at a moment’s notice. By having a pocketknife on him at all times, my father had his own do-it-yourself solution for a multitude of daily tasks. I’ve always admired that self-sufficiency, and in recent years I’ve strived to emulate it by carrying my own knife or multitool with me wherever I go.
I’ve found that carrying a small knife with me every day can be liberating—all because of those small DIY victories.
Nothing earth-shaking here, but it is always nice to see knife culture normalized in a mass media publication.
