Bought pocket knives all the time from Wal Mart growing up. My wife's 6 months older than me and during that time when I was "under age" but she was allowed to buy one, they actually refused to let me even look at and handle one. I'm sitting there with one clipped on my pocket not knowing there was even an age limit and I had to get them to hand the knife to her so she could hand it to me. The employee just walked away. I understand there are policies and whatnot, but there were a lot of things going through my head that I just communicated through my looks at the guy.
