    I grew up in rural southwestern PA coal mining country back when there were still a lot mines in operation (and there were still a lot of working farms, and it seemed like everyone still hunted and fished). WV was our backyard. Growing up, pocketknives were as common as cell phones are today. I got my first as a Christmas present when I was 5yrs old. It didn’t take me long to lose it, but it was only the first in a life long love affair with the pocketknife. The Buck 110 was the knife to have when I was growing up. Today my edc is a Swiss Army Knife.

    I hope no one was injured during this Spartan approach to parenting...

    Nice writeup. Somewhat relate-able though

    Yes Moshe, watching Swamp Loggers and Swamp People on the tube, there are still some tough ones left "Chute the alley-gator Jacob, chute em";)
    And the combat troops, while more mechanized, still have close quarters combat firefights and defuse IED's and that is about the bravest thing that I can think of.
    People have changed as a whole though, too many looking for a hand out than giving a helping hand.

    I wasn't remotely referring to the dramatized figures on the so-called reality shows...

    Read my post again. I was referring to everyday working people!

    L'chaim!
