If everyone else does it, will you too?

Og over at the Neanderpundit challenged his readers to pull out their pocket knife and post a picture of it.

I've been carrying the same tool around for over 35 years. I've never really thought of it as carrying a knife. It was always just a tool in my pocket. Through the years I've used it to cut rope, string, thread, tape, cardboard, paper, plastic, plants, etc. I've dug splinters out with it. Used it to sort small parts, temperarily tighten screws, clean crap out from between keys on a keyboard, scrape gum off gym floors, clean my fingernails, and hundreds of other things that have slipped my memory through the decades.

Here's what lives in the bottom of my left front pants pocket:
