There's usually a guy like that in every squad, though. I admit I was that guy. I usually only had one or two knives, but it was usually worth more than the rest of the squad's combined. Everybody had a knife, though. Mostly sub-$50 knives from gun brands with the occasional cheaper Cold Steel. Gerber multitools dominated over Leatherman but folding single-blade knives were the most common in my unit. Lots of multitools were attached to rucks or chest carriers. Yep. This one was a towed unit. Looking back I can definitely see the confusion though, as my wording could lead one to think that I lost the Leatherman when the water buffalo walked off, which does definitely sound like the start of a story that needs to be expounded upon... Pet peeve: All the NCOs at E6 or above in my old company pronounced that word "pAHtable" instead of "pOHtable," which always infuriated me. Also getting written communications that somehow manage to work in the term "all intents and purposes" but misspelled as "all intensive purposes."
