Pocket knives have been around for centuries.
Pocket knives come in handy during an emergency and have a wide variety of uses. They can be used to open letters or packages, peel fruit, for personal protection, and all sorts of other things.
I discovered a new use for pocket knives. I was in a gas station bathroom stall and really needed to use the facility. However, the stall lock was missing, so I jammed my pocket knife into the lock bracket. It worked great and I was able to finish my business.
I was saved by a pocket knife.
