My Wife Thinks I’m Crazy for Doing This…

Am I losing my mind? Maybe…

But I sure as hell never want to be caught without a knife. That’s why I recently started carrying two of them, every day.

Why two knives you ask? Here are just a few reasons:

First, I use a knife every day for utility purposes. By carrying knives with different sizes and blade shapes it’s more likely that I will have a better tool for the job. I can also carry one knife that is my “beater” (The one I don’t hesitate to get muddy, sticky, or greasy).

Pocket Knives

Next, in a self-defense situation you never know if the knife kept on your dominant side will be inaccessible. Perhaps an attacker has you pinned against a wall, has control of your arm etc.

Also, if forced to stab an attacker, it is very possible the knife will be difficult to recover, a grisly thought but it is a real problem (Muscles tend to clench around the blade). If there is a second attacker you’ll be glad you brought a backup.

Self-Defense Situation Number 3 (okay, my overactive imagination is probably the real reason my wife thinks I’m crazy): Carrying blades on different portions of the body can be an advantage if you are taken to the ground. This is a great reason to carry a boot knife. I can keep going with the self-defense scenarios but I think you get the point.

A knife is also one of the two most critical survival tools (a fire source is the second). As the old saying goes “Two is one, and one is none.” You can expect that if the SHTF you’d immediately drop your one and only knife into a mud hole, or it would fall out of a pocket in the dark. A backup is just common sense.

Okay you can see that there are a lot of good reasons to carry two knives. A savvy person may question my logic by saying that if this were the case we should carry two of everything, two sets of keys, two wallets, two cell phones, et cetera.

Point taken, we can take preparation to such an extreme that we cannot lead a normal life. The difference, especially with knives, is the relative ease of carrying two. With so many knives on the market it is easy to find a backup that is inconspicuous, small, and comfortable. What I’m trying to say is that the downside is so small and the upside so large that it’s simply a no-brainer, at least for me.

What do you think? Am I the only one who carries two knives?

  1. Well, maybe I’m nuts too then. My wife certainly thinks I’m a bit paranoid about it too. I carry a knife in each front jeans pocket, a cross draw tiger claw that I can draw across the wrist of any would-be gun jacker. I also carry a tactical pen clipped in my left pocket, a Stryker clipped inside my right. A boot knife, a key knife, and sometimes one or two others!

  2. I have a pretty nice collection of knives my self. Even my Dad’s WWII navy side knife in the original sheath. hard shell with a hula dancer on it.

  3. I always carry at least2 knives. I even have the credit card knife in my wallet. That is my hideout knife. If for some unforeseen reason
    I am in asome kind of hostage situation. I’ll still have something to use.
    I carry a fixed knife my son made out of an old bed frame. Heat treated, hard, sharp as hell.
    I’ve carried it for 5years, I have never sharpened it. And I use it for EVERYTHING.
    Still shaving sharp. I also carry a lnife i got from you guys. I don’t remember the name. But it has a wicked looking blade on it.
    I also carry you stilleto blade in my duty belt while at work.

  4. I always carry two knives on me, I have my fixed blade on my hip and I have a tactical folder in my front pocket opposite the the fixed blade and I will wear a boot knife occasionally, no man, I don’t think you’re crazy at all, smart I reckon
