Sugar Ray loved and collected pocket knifes making this story so fitting. Pocket Knife So, who are the kind of men who carry pocketknives today? They are typically utilitarian. They are the type of men who work hard for a living, fix what is broken, and stand fearless in the face of a world full of evil. To put it simply, they are the type of men that this world needs more of. If you find yourself in a tight spot and need some help, just ask the guy with the pocketknife. Although they are few and far between these days, chances are he can and will be able to help you out.
