And I will have to disagree here. I have yet to see, for example, ANY
serious woodcarver argue...or believe...that a really good multi-function
pocket knife has a blades useful for serious carving. Many carvers, in
fact, do have multiple knives for various purposes. If this scout, or any
other, carves, and many older scouts do like to woodcarve, several knives
might, in fact, be "normal."
