    A locking knife is certainly not for EDC, but it's hardly as if your own property is the only place you can carry one.

    A couple of questions:

    -What is it about watch enthusiasts and knives? It seems every watch YouTuber needs to inform us of his weapon of choice to machete his way through sticky-tape wrapping. For that matter, half the lifestyle gurus also seem to think a true gentleman shouldn't step out of his loft apartment without a 4-inch blade in his manbag.
    - What makes a torch 'tactical'?

    Black.
    Black = Tactical.
    And more expensive than a normal torch.
    £ = Tactical.

    Why are you reading up on lifestyle gurus yet NOT carrying a tactical apple-corer/Balisong?
    Come on Col, get with the cool kids....

    Personally, I have many bone-handled knives, and my loft-apartment smells of rich Mahogany.
    Anyway, Iím off to oil my beard and get a life-affirming statement tattooed on my neck.

    Ironically, I do wear a knife and carry a watch at all times. And have an oiled beard and tattoos.

    I do have a torch on my tactical phone (black, expensive = tactical), BUT what separates me from other modern gentleman-preppers is:
    1: I donít think the apocalypse/zombie invasion/civil uprising is imminent enough for me to need a pocket-full of GoOutdoors kit at all times.
    2: Iííí will proper stab you up you cu*ts, and I carry for that reason. (And cutting open the lid of my home-delivery organic vegetable box.)

    Thank you! Very informative! By happy coincidence, I'm wearing a tactical suit into the office today.

    God knows. It does seem many feel they arenít manly unless they are using a Bowie knife to slit open their dental appointment letter. Bizarre.

    That must be when the Samurai sword slung over the bed is in with Grand Seiko for its annual zaratsu polishing.

    Oh, don't tar every one them with the same brush... some of them evolve to the point of taking them outdoors at weekend to whittle sticks and skin the defenceless animals they've shot dead from a really safe distance...
