    My father carries a pocketknife, as well as a handkerchief, and I've always associated those two things with elements of a gentleman.

    My stepfather collects the most amazing pocketknives from all over the world...he tells people it's a hobby, but I think he's just trying to protect himself from my mother.

    I used to carry one when I was in fourth and fifth grades.

    And yes, I carried them to school. Teachers knew. Heck, they could see the outline in my pocket. It didn't matter. We didn't kill each oher back in those days.

    My dad carries a penknife and two, yes two, handkerchiefs, a comb and toothpick. He used to use Old Spice, but I saw a bottle of Brut the last time I was over. He also sings a mean "Blues Eyes Crying in the Rain" in an Eastern European language.

    I sometimes carry a Leatherman.

    My dad carries a half-drank bottle of shoe polish, a Swank magazine and the beating heart of a stray dog.

    Bring your dad over. I've got some Slivovitz. We'll get along fine.

    I keep one in my truck. It has a serrated edge at the base of the blade that's good for cutting off the plugs everytime I have to fix a flat ... which seems like every other day lately.

    I used to carry a multi-tool in my purse a few years back, it came in really helpful with a job I had where I was always opening boxes, cutting rope and tape, setting things up, etc.

    Got it taken away at an airport - not because I was stupid enough to try to take it on a flight.

    At the last minute I had to escort my minor cousin to her gate for an unaccompanied flight (they had threatened to bump her because the flight was overbooked - like hell I was going to let that happen!), and I not only had to go through security but the "extra security" where they swabbed everything you owned for bomb residue and all that.

    They took my multi-tool, which I understood, but I tried to explain that I wasn't getting on an airplane and asked if I could come back through in five minutes and retrieve it. For some reason, that was completely unacceptable.

    Fucking airport security.
