The pocket knife dates back to the first century when the Romans invent it. It was a handy utility tool with endless uses such as cutting cloth, meat, and many other uses or just whittling a piece of wood. However, the pocket knife slowly gave way to the sheath knife as a more favorable alternative. It wasn’t until the 16th century that the folding pocket knife began making a comeback. It became so popular that men of all walks were carrying one including businessmen, farmers, lawyers to name a few. The versatile pocket knife was once again being used for a variety of jobs, even eating on the go.
Throughout American history, the Pocket knife has been an essential tool carried by soldiers and sailors. During the American Revolution, New Hampshire and New York required their militias to carry pocket knives. George Washington had one on his person at all times. The pocket knife became standard issue for American GIs during WWII.
Though men have been carrying pocket knives for centuries, modern times have seen an increase in security in airports and a variety of buildings which has led to the disappearing pocketknife. But such minor obstacles should not be reason enough to stop carrying the reliable pocket knife altogether.
A pocket knife used to be as essential to a man as his wallet and keys. How many times have you been in a situation where you wished you had a knife. The following are just a few instances of how handy a pocket knife really is.
Use a pocket knife for:
- 1. A box opener.
- 2. Cutting string, tape or rope.
- 3. Slicing fruit especially apples and eating them by slicing it into pieces and eat them off the blade, safely of course.
- 4. You can use your finger to open a letter like most, but why when a pocket knife is so much more convenient.
- 5. As a weapon though not the most effective, but it’s better than nothing.
- 6. Camping is where a pocketknife is a must have. Sharpening a stick to a point for stabbing your prey (meaning your hot dog) is a must.
The three common designs of pocket knives are the multi-purpose knife having scissors, can openers, tweezers, leather punchers, and even screwdrivers, the jack knife has a hinge at one end with two or more blades and the pen knife has hinges on both ends of the handle with multiple blades. Choosing the right pocket knife is simply based on your needs.

If you play the piano or any keyboard instrument, you know that the bench you’re sitting on can make a lot of difference in how comfortably you play and how much you enjoy playing. A bench that’s the wrong height can even affect how well you play. This Ebony Adjustable Artist Piano Bench solves that and does it beautifully.
The bench is made of solid hardwood, not cheap chipboard or plywood, so it won’t develop wiggles or sags over time.
The adjustment mechanism is a heavy-duty fine-adjustment silent mechanism, which allows you to set it to just where you want it, rather than a click-adjust mechanism with a few preset heights. It can be adjusted easily even while you’re sitting on it.
The seat lid lifts easily, and stays up without needing to be held with one hand while you try to get your music out with the other one.
There is some assembly required; the legs are packed carefully inside the bench section for shipping. But it only takes a few minutes to screw them into place and tighten them with the wrench that’s included. Other than that, it’s ready to use.
The seat itself is deeply padded with firm foam, so you won’t feel the hard front edges of the bench pressing into the backs of your legs. The firmness of the padding means that your posture won’t suffer since you won’t be sinking into a squishy cushion. The adjustable height feature means that your back won’t hurt.
The height that the seat can be adjusted to goes from from 19″ to 21 1/2″, suitable for anyone except very small children. The bench is 22″ in length and 13 1/2″ front-to-back. There’s a moderate storage area (19.5″ long x 11.5″ wide x 1.5″ deep) inside the seat, enough for several music books. It weighs about 25 pounds; heavy enough to be steady, but light enough to not be a chore to move.
The wood components have a durable high-gloss finish in ebony black that matches classic black piano finishes. The seat is covered in durable black leatherette in a ten-button tufted pattern.
If you’re looking for a piano bench, the Ebony Adjustable Artist Piano Bench is a great bench, and it’s a great value as well. Its features and quality construction put it in the same class as benches that cost two or three times as much.

Reading about the product online is mandatory. After all, there is a big difference making purchases online and making in-store purchases. One does not get to examine the product directly or even get a chance to try it on. It is more than likely that one will receive ordered items shipped with the wrong dimensions or sizes through online purchases as opposed to in-store purchases. Returns and exchanges can be an ongoing frustrating process. Taking time reading the instructions and researching the product in depth can be worth the effort. Coupons and rewards maybe linked to the product. Taking advantage of customer service would be to a great advantage in order to obtain detailed information.
Not knowing the return policy before making any purchases can be costly. In some cases stores or business may request a ship to fee for the returned item and another fee to ship the replacement, just like Amazon. After making all the circulations one does notice that they have paid double the dollar amount for the entire process. In-store returns will normally request to the see the original receipt at no extra cost.
Shipping and handling rates do vary. There are flat rates, variable fees depending on the item purchased, or free shipping. It is always safe to be well prepared. Shipping time frames vary as well. The heavier products may take much longer to arrive. Knowledge of the shipping time frames can be beneficial especially if deadlines are involved. Taxes do vary, knowledge of the tax rates is recommended. Sites may appear secure but not necessarily safe. Being cognizant of the site security is critical.
Online shopping does have its negative and positive points. Being cognizant of all factors involved is recommended.
