A Pocket Full Of Ready: Pocket Knives Can Be Used For Many Purposes | Times Free Press

Police: Fishers teen planned out murder in detail – TheIndyChannel.com

For some, it’s sentimental, a gift from a loved one or a treasured memento from childhood. For others, it can be a simple matter of practicality, a tool they use every day. Some use them in their jobs. In either case, the knife can become a familiar friend, a comforting weight in the front pocket. And it seems to predominantly be a “guy” thing; the only nods to women appear to be pocket knives with pink handles. The website for Knife Depot, a web-only store and information site, lists a folding knife with a pink aluminum handle that says: “This sweet-looking, single-blade, folding pocket knife will make any woman swoon.” The word “swoon” doesn’t show up in the descriptions of knives aimed at men. Still, whether it’s a small single-blade pen knife that comes out every now and then to cut a tag off a new pair of work gloves or a multi-tool type similar to the one Richard Dean Anderson used on “MacGyver” to whittle a small engine out of a tree limb, a pocket knife is simply handy, say those who carry one regularly.

Racine man sought in burglary

Winkler stated to me that Max has a history of curiosity about fires and has used his magnifying glass to start other things on fire,” wrote Division Chief Mark Elder, who responded to the call. “I asked Mr. Winkler if Max was receiving counseling about this, and he stated that he was.” Elder also noted that a female neighbor approached him as he was leaving expressing her concerns because “this was not an isolated issue and that other homes have been damaged by Max.” In October 2006, firefighters were again called to Winkler’s home when he allegedly used a stolen lighter to set a treehouseon fire. Elder again responded to the call. “I asked Max where he got the lighter and he said the trees.
