    I always have my Swiss army knife on me or in my bag, -always-. I also usually carry around my switchblade (which I need to put back together...reminds me) with a 5" blade. I walk wherever I need to from town to town unless I'm really in a hurry, so it's a good idea for me to have something with me that'd give me an advantage over an ass on the street when it's dark. I can do some serious damage with just myself, but it gives me piece of mind that I won't have to go through all that to intimidate (or defend) myself if a situation were to arise on my way home in the dark. If I have shorts on, it's in my bag; if I have jeans on, it's either in my back right or front left pocket. If I'm feeling extra edgy I'll toss it in my right hoodie pocket for extra ease. It's more than noticeable that I have a knife on me if I'm not wearing a hoodie or jacket, which is generally enough to make someone think twice about trying to start something.
    It helps that a lot of the town will cross the street and walk on the other side of the sidewalk if I'm alone and I'm not looking particularly friendly.

    Point being, I wouldn't think twice about anyone else having one unless they had it out and threatening to use it (or they were one of the crazy hobos around here...). I can't be hypocritical and judge someone else for doing the exact same thing I, myself, do, can I? :p

    I honestly wouldn't even notice and if I did I wouldn't even react in any way.

    I doubt I would notice unless I were bored and standing in line or something. But, I wouldn't give it any thought. I ordinarily carry a small knife, except when I go to town....not sure why - but I tend to change my entire outfit....ditch the knifes, hoof pick I forgot was in my pocket, put on my clean boots, etc.,. In my purse, however, I always have an lcd flashlight, "swiss army" knife, and a tire guage...never can be to prepared! :)

    I keep my serrated kabar on me. I wouldn't freak out if I saw someone walkin around with it. I was at a bar in downtown Nashville and it fell out of my pocket, lol. No one flinched!

    I wouldn't look twice, as most around here carry one. My husband works for a school system, so he can't carry one at work, but always does on off time. I am trying to remember to carry one , so handy, but do keep one in the barn and trailer.

    We have actually been to rodeos and went out afterwards and they won't let you in a bar considering spurs a "weapon" and had to leave them at the door.
    (Note: I don't wear my spurs to town out of habit, just an observation after a long night of drinking)
    Spurs are a weapon? How? You jump on someone's back during a fight & jab 'em a few times?

    I wouldn't think twice about it. I don't carry one with me all the time because my school district has a very, erm, strict policy on "weapons," as I found out in second grade when I brought my new Swiss knife to school . Knowing me, I would leave it in my jeans pocket before school and end up bringing the oh-so-dangerous pocket knife to class. I have one in the trailer and the barn, so I'm covered there.
