The MANual - June 2013

We have all been in situations where you will inevitably be forced to ask, ‘Does anyone have a knife?!’ Whether you are opening, trimming, slicing or dicing, you never know when a proper knife will come in handy.

The all-new Cigar Advisor is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real cigar smokers. Cigar Advisor has just published “The Pocket Knife Routine,” the newest addition to the MANual series within the magazine.

Cigar Advisor contributor Andy Case has authored the newest edition of the MANual, and makes the case for why a standard single blade knife should be a part of every man’s routine.

Acknowledging questions of its practicality, he says, “some may argue against the usefulness of carrying one daily; but we have all been in situations where you will inevitably be forced to ask, ‘Does anyone have a knife?!’ Whether you are opening, trimming, slicing or dicing, you never know when a proper knife will come in handy.”

Andy goes on to detail a variety of scenarios in which the routine habit of carrying a simple pocket knife will prove valuable. Specifically, he discusses opening the mail, using it in the kitchen, or for backyard repairs: “The quick-fix is already in your pocket. Pull out the old knife, tighten up those screws up and be on your way.” He also notes the usefulness of the pocket knife in the outdoors.

Case also notes that proper care, cleaning and maintenance of a pocket knife is not only important, but necessary – especially if used around food. “With a full day’s use of a knife, a good cleaning is in order. Cleaning should be done on a near-daily basis. If you use the knife with food, it is especially important to clean it before and after use.” He then proscribes a simple regimen for cleaning and lubrication to extend the useful life of the tool. The best part, Andy adds, is that “next time someone asks, ‘does anyone have a knife?’ you’re the one who’s prepared.”
