Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! To the op you just said you don't carry the knife for others but yet it's a status symbol? Remember you are the one that posted here with this nonsense so you really can't get pissy when others make fun of you your post are ridiculous. It took you carrying a bat in your pants over 2 hours to realize it was uncomfortable and was hard to sit down? Well I for one am glad you got your front pocket conversation peice to which I don't understand either because you said you don't want others to know what you are carrying but yet carry these big knives for conversation? Please keep us informed of your adventures in this practical knife carrying study. And I'm sure if the blade breaks in your pocket the warranty will cover it.
