Life in America knows the importance of a knife. Yes, knives are a part of America. There are such knives as the bowie knife and in those days almost everyone had a knife on their side. Davy Crockett carried a knife. Jim Bowie carried a knife. Yes, in the stories and pictures of the early days of America everyone carried a knife.
Well, in the southern part of America a knife is still important. Most people do not carry one on their belt but most men will certainly have a folding pocket knife. The reason is that there are all kinds of reason to carry a knife. You never know when you will have to cut something or when you might have a bear attack you and that pocket knife might be all you have. However, the importance of a knife is also seen in many people and especially in military is the tactical knife . They will usually have these on there person when on duty. They are important. Another knife is just any old knife that many people use which is just a plain fixed blade knife.
