    1) your swiss army knife doesn't have a lock on it. a common buck or gerber folder is illegal in England to carry

    2) not with pistols

    It would be better than bringing a knife to a gun fight!

    depends, in some cases a knife is a better choice than a gun.

    Silent work? Well, I'm not an assassin.

    best story I heard was when I was in Kenya hunting with the late great famous Hunter Steven Smith. Smith had married into a famous family of hunters (the Poolman family) after serving with Montgomery and later as a District Inspector for the British Colonial government. His job including dealing with the Mau Mau rebellion where whites were murdered by members of the Kikuyu tribe (from which Jomo Kenyatta-first president of the Independent Kenya came from)

    Steve's Colonial Sgt Major was a Kikuyu named Gotcha. Gotcha served with the British army and later Steve. The Mau Mau didn't like that. so they raped Gotcha's sister over and over and then drowned her in a latrine. Steve and Gotcha went hunting. They found the Mau Mau camp late one night. Steve sat on a ridge with his rifle and his radio. Gotcha snuck into the camp. The next day the Mau Mau woke up-well some did. every other one had his throat cut. a few minutes later, the Hawker hurricanes came in an napalmed the camp. Steve shot the heads off of a couple who managed to get away.

    That's terrible, the poor sister.

    Honestly, I don't know if I could stab someone unless I felt my life was in danger. It's just too disgusting. I'm not crazy about blood and guts and other gross bodily fluids.

    one day dad was with Steve as was my youngest brother looking for Kudu. I was with my other brother and Gotcha. I had the 7MM and Gotcha was carrying a 458 in case we got charged by a lion or a Rhino. SO I ask Steve, is Gotcha a good shot? SO he tells me how his brother in law was killed- a client had shot a lion but only stunned it and the lion attacked the client and Poolman pushed the Client out of the way. Poolman's gun bearer tried to shoot the lion but the lion turned and the load of buckshot hit Poolman and killed him. Before the lion could attack the client, Gotcha (who was working with Poolman at the time) picked up the shotgun the other gun bearer had dropped (the man fled after shooting his boss by accident) and broke the lion's skull with a butt stroke (The British army was good at teaching that move) spun the gun around like a parade ground drill and blew the lion's brains out with the shotgun's other barrel. I figure a guy bad enough to kill a lion like that was plenty tough enough to protect us from any thing we could have come across. That's when Steve told me about the payback of the Mau Mau terrorists

    Wow! That guy's a bad ass! I would definitely want him on my team in the case of a zombie apocalypse.
