YouTube Questions


Patreon Questions:

JayClay - Overall thoughts on folding knives for defense? Generally that is all I carry because it is so easy to throw in my pocket.

Matthew - How may knives do you carry? I've found keeping 2 in the same front pocket with the clips visible (Ohio) . My OTF Microtech for any potential social work, and my 0350 ZTfor every day cutting tool. along those lines, do you keep a blade with a partial serrated edge?
