For John, BLUF: Yes, I carry a three blade pocket knife. It used to an Old Timer. Now it is a Buck. Doesn't everybody? Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Appalachian Magazine, by AppalachianMagazine, 24 October 2018.
Here is a key paragraph:
Military veterans, conservative before that was even a word people in the country knew, and Appalachian proud, these men also shared another thing in common, each of them carried a knife — Not a large killing knife, but a small 3-4 inch knife that would inevitably find its way into their hands a countless number of times through the course of each day.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
