Even Beans Taste Good With a Hobo Knife
Back in the Thirties, the hobos traveled light, as they rode the rails and dodged the bulls, working any kind of odd job, trying to beat the Depression. An all-purpose pocketknife was an essential for a multitude of daily tasks, from cutting a walking stick to slicing spuds for a Mulligan stew. While no hobo carried a knife quite like this, it’s called a Hobo Knife for its simple, all-in-one utility when you’re hunting, camping or tramping. The knife, spoon and fork slide out into three separate utensils – no more folding and unfolding while your grub gets cold. And when you’re good and full, tuck it back in the nylon carrying case, attach it to your belt or toss it in your pack, glove compartment or lunchbox.
