People are going to lose their minds thinking I’m trying to tell them about everyday carry by falsely thinking I’m talking about firearms, but I am strictly speaking here about EDC pocket knives for private investigators who may find themselves at elevated risk for physical conflict.
Here’s my thinking… I like to carry a pretty small pocket knife because if I’m in a fight, I don’t want to have anything on me that could be mistaken for a weapon when the cops show up.
I have two small pocket knives I like and I show them in the video, but they are certainly small by any measure.
And I do carry them strictly for utility purposes. Not as weapons. And only one at a time.
One of them is a “single hand opener” which I like a lot and the other is slightly smaller an is more of a classic “pen knife”. Note: Not “disguised” as a pen but what we uses to simply call pen knives.
I do have other knives I carry for specific purposes like camping or fishing and (of course!) they are larger knives, but I don’t carry them everyday.
This whole topic is really a huge “common sense” thing, but I wanted you to know my thoughts in case they can inform your decision on your EDC pocket knife.
And always remember: Do the right thing even if its the hard thing.
Committed to your success and safety,
Larry Kaye, P.I.
P.S. – Also, don’t miss my special report titled… If You Want To be a Private Investigator Give Up… Unless You Do These Three Things. You can get it right here…
P.P.S. – When you watch the video you’ll see the one hand opener I carry is very, very worn. I bought it new over twenty years ago and have carried it so much almost all the “rubberized” grip has worn off.
