I wanted a pocket knife so I could learn how to whittle and survive wilderness adventures since I was 6. My brothers were given one by my uncle but I wasn’t given one because I was a girl and my parents never caved despite it occurring on my wish lists for years and years. When I got my drivers license the very first place I drove on my own was to Bass pro shop. I bought myself a gerber pocket knife for $16.99 and I still have it. It comes in handy all the time.
