Hey. Firstly, I am Canadian, and in Ontario, you can carry a folding (not spring assisted or butterfly) knife, with a blade under 3 or 4 inches in length. You can look up the rules if you want. So yes, I was carrying it legally. And why do I carry a knife? Because I use it as a tool. It's not a weapon. I was in the forest, it was a tool. He said he needed it as a tool. I believed him, it's a logical claim. I can understand why it would seem like a ridiculously dumb idea to let someone borrow

There's really no way I can see OP could have been more careful here, besides maybe finding out what the guy needed the knife for. Personally when people ask to borrow one of my knives I go and do the job for them if I don't know or trust them. That way I don't have to surrender one of my babies.

#46 Why couldn't she have just said no? Since when is it considered necessary to allow people you don't know to use your personal possessions? If a stranger asks me to hand over any of my personal possessions my answer is always along the lines of "no, sorry, I don't know you". Who cares if it's not very polite? You don't owe them anything.

I dont get why 4 is thumbed down. Its true. OP is lucky he didn't do anything else to her. OP while you shouldn't have handed him your knife I'm sorry you had to go through that, it must have been very scary to experience that.

I feel like it would be too mean to say YDI to such a nice person. I mean, he is the victim here. Just cause he made a less-than- clever act of what he thought was being kind, doesn't mean he deserves to be berated. Of all people I'm sure he is the one kicking himself the most for handing it over.

There was a comment before mine that said "that's what you get for being nice to strangers" so it's clear that whoever said that has no friends because how can you make friends if you're not nice to strangers?

#48, you're a fucking idiot. A knife is an extremely useful and important tool that we could not live without. It's the basis for creating pretty much everything. Sure, some people can't be trusted with a fucking crayon, but most are responsible enough to keep themselves in order. I got my first knife for my tenth birthday and I've never stabbed, mugged or attacked anyone.
