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:

For Everyday Use

Pocket Knives

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).

For Self-Defense

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.

As a Survival Tool

A knife is also one of the two most critical survival tools we have (a fire source being 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. Even so, some people may question my logic by saying that if this were the case we may as well carry two of everything—two sets of keys, two wallets, two cell phones, etc.

Here’s the Thing

It’s possible for us to take preparation to such an extreme that it becomes impossible to 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.

So what do you think?

Am I the only one who carries two knives? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I have been for years on the farm too easy for an arm sleeve or loose piece of clothing to get in machinery and you need to cut yourself loose immedately . An since it can be either arm or leg , I carry two clip on knives one on either side and a boot knife in each shoe . I don’t stop there I have knives placed on key spots on all my equipment too . as well over the visor of every car and truck . Knives are just plain handy as a tool that I feel naked without one being a least arms length away . The movies and fanatsy tv shows may it look like a joke when a character is asked to disarm and they pile a small table with 15 or 30 knives of varying designs and sizes . But in truth I pay close attention to were these blades are placed on the body and try to assess if it is actually workable and if it is over the top dramatic affect . Most are just for show and besides there is a point where the weight becomes too much to be able to do anything . Maybe we are both crazy , the good knives are always in a go bag and on my belt clipped on in plain sight and easy access . The cheap ones are almost everywhere else , these I buy by the dozen at my local feed and supply for $1 apiece they are disposable and break easily but they get what I need done for every day stuff ; cutting hay bale strings or wrap on pallets and feed bags . I have a couple of hunting knives as well but they are specialty knives for gutting and skinning game . What your giving away is almost pure gold I could throw away all of my other knives ( but I won’t ) and use yours for all it . But again I need the blade within arms reach all the time and easy access all the time from whatever side just in case . Accidents do happen just as shit happens and those left live to talk are the ones whom are prepared for SHTF whatever it may be .

  2. To the team thank you for having me,I’m so willing to take up some survival tactics. I am 58 years old and wounded from wearing tear, I will be making an investment with the fightfast company, almost over the hardship due to Corona. Thank you for being here look forward to studying more life-saving tactics

  3. Hey, I am totally with you on carrying two knives. I actually carry three myself. The one is marked “gas key”…not technically a knife. Another is a pin knife, the other a stiletto. I need to get a leg strap for a fourth…I think…a boot knife. He! He! He! I see there others on here who also carry multiple knives.

  4. I’m not familiar with the technique but I believe in it I have daughters I never beat them across the heads about doing things but self defense is a must. I believe the body can be a armored truck and the mind is the weapon. Once monies circulate again I will be a student I promise myself that.

  5. Awesome blog. I’ve been carrying multiple knives for years. I never leave home without my boot knife it saved my life and I’m sure the lives of my family a few years ago. A knife is the most valuable tool anyone could ever have.

  6. I love your site and blog! I have bought several items from you. I will continue to buy my knives and other products from you. THANK YOU! I found my slice of heaven within your site.

  7. Just a quick comment … I carry three knives at all times. Striker evac and a multi tool. Also in winter I carry my boot knife

  8. Your not alone brother I’m a firm believer that “ id rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it!

  9. I carry more. I’ve been a single woman for many years and I’ve done some dangerous jobs. I don’t go anywhere, including bed, without my knives. And I have a nice collection including bayonets and swords.
