Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day: What Kind of Man Carries FOUR Knives?

Josh is a 21-year-old IT guy from Fargo. Click here to see if he’s funny lookin’. (Go Bears!) I reckon there’s something funny about carrying four knives. Funny peculiar, not funny ha-ha. Two knives I understand. You want to carry one knife for . . .

cutting stuff. A knife that will get knocked around and need sharpening. You want a second razor-sharp self-defense knife, maybe something assisted or auto. But four?

Click here to ID Josh’s blades. Share your WTF or a rationale in the comments section below.

And yes, we’re deep into www.thetruthaboutknives.com territory. So a quick word about guns . . .

Assuming you don’t buy firearms based on Second Amendment politics, Josh’s Springfield Armory 9mm XDS is a solid choice for on-board self-defense, especially with two extended mags. But FDE fails to beat basic black when you’re color-coordinating blade and bullet thrower. Wait. Does anybody do that? Do you?

    It’s your load, you carry it.

    Like I said in the earlier article: if you buy a gun by a blacklisted company but get it used, they’re not going to make more money.
    Think of it this way: Nazis were scum – we all agree on that. But how many of you would pass up a wartime Luger pistol? Or Mauser rifle? Quality is really hard to argue against.
    As for the knives, I figure he’s just showing off the selection he rotates from day to day.

    1. avatar Joe from NC says:

      This^. The knives are a rotation thing.

    2. avatar Geoff PR says:

      Well, I’ll put it this way – for all that Luger ‘quality’, no way in hell would I ever EDC that gun. I certainly wouldn’t kick it out of bed (gunsafe), but I wouldn’t EDC it.

      Speaking of EDC…

      This loadout looks familiar, especially that green skinner.

      Was this a repeat ECD loadout?

      Everyone needs a BUK (backup knife). Or two. Or three.

  5. avatar General Zod says:

    I carry two knives and a multitool. One knife I use regularly, one was a gift I gave my father that I got back when he died, and the multitool has its uses (though I rarely cut anything with it). It’s not too hard to imagine a purpose for a fourth one – particularly if it’s suited for self defense.

    Another repost.

  7. avatar TommyJay says:

    Farago quotes “Fargo.” If Josh goes fish’in up at Mille Lacs, he might need a few different knives.

  8. avatar Hank says:
