So as I walked into a store yesterday I saw a guy walking toward me heading for the exit. Right off I noticed that he had a sheath knife on his belt, probably about 14 inches in length, and the low-level alarms started up. Why would someone walk around town with a big knife on his belt? As I passed him I noticed the bottom end of a holster visible on the other side of his belt and I started to relax - I realized that someone with a gun seemed like less of a threat than someone with a knife. Maybe I'm just more of a gun guy than a knife guy, but it did seem strange. I always have a folding knife with me but I still don't get carrying a big sheath knife around.
