I once worked in an office as the sole male with about 18 females, ages 18-50. The least scary of my knives in order were: a green FRN Endura, an orange Military, and an blue SAK classic. I could use these knives with impunity, no questions, no complaints. I once opened a box with a black FRN Dragonfly and got a verbal warning for carrying a weapon. I am glad I no longer work in that type of environment. I would like to go back and see what the think of my 6" Venom Green ESEE. They'd probably think it's cute.
