My father gave me a Portuguese pocket knife a few years ago. He gets very pissed off when it is recalled and not at my disposal. We think you need one as well (it does not have to be Portuguese). Of course, we would recommend removing it for flights, but a good pocket knife should be at hand for every gent. Here’s a Made in Maine, USA scrimshaw knife found over on Blackbird. “Two blade pocket knife hand etched in a small workshop in Maine. The scrimshaw is inked with black india ink and sealed with 2 coats of archival wax to protect the intricate design and to enhance the beauty of the ivory. The knife handle is bone and measures 4 1/8″ folded.”
