Really, if we took a good, hard, honest look, I think we would find the vast majority of our knives are irrational fun. I know mine are. Clearly the vast majority of the world functions just fine with one knife...and probably a knife we would consider crap. They would probably consider an SAK as a piece of tarted-up silliness. Honestly, I know I can get through a typical day with a Vic Classic, and, if need be, kick up to a bigger Vic like a Super Tinker and be completely covered. Are those the only two knives I own? Of course not! I own machetes for Scagels sakes and I live in a major metropolitan area. What the heck am I gonna do with a machete? Let alone 3 of them?!? Its all irrational fun. Its why we have them. Its why we come here and talk about them....which is even more irrational.
