What's it like? Swiss and simple? Big, Bold, and folding Buck to be worn off the Belt? Magazine offer with all the tricks in the world?

Knife? I got no knife! I use a leatherman imitation!

Or something big, razor sharp, dangerous..............................and illegal in most states?

Me, it's a simple Swiss, two blades, twizzers, toothpick, can and bottle opener...........though right now I'm also carrying the Tool Logic Card, mostly thought because that one is out of it's "hanger" and I haven't put it back yet.

So where do you stand on the cutting edge of technology?

Just a old 50s era two blade pocket knife with Mother of Pearl scales. Nothing special but it's darn sharp and stays that way.

CRKT Ignitor, I love this knife.  I carried kershaw for years but if you dropped the model I liked they flipped open, this knife has a safety lock on the opener button so if I drop it it stays closed.

Right now it's a Kershaw Rake, but I've got a few other Kershaws and a Crkt Snap Lock that I rotate through. All are extremely sharp and none are serrated.

I like it. Its well made but I wouldn't use it for cutting boxes all day. Same size as a money clip, which it can double as. Changing blades is easy. You can use a penny to remove the screw. Walmart and Target sells them for around $10. So if you don't like it you're not out a lot of money. The only complaint I have is the edges of the handle are a little sharp. Sometimes it scrapes the hand when I'm reaching in my pocket. I've been meaning to round the edges over.

Microtech Makora II is my EDC pocketknife.  Although mine is black with the combo edge (part serrated)
ETA yes it is likely illegal in most places.  And yes, it is as big as it appears.

Usually carry the small SAK with tweezers and tactical toothpick everyday.  Scissors come in handy at times!

At work I usually carry a cheaper S&W 3.5" bladed folder for cutting chores as well.  Between those two I have it covered for me.

A tool  is a tool.  There is no one best tool.  A tool is useless unless you have it with you.


In each car, in each pack, in each suitcase, at the work location, at home, in the second home, in the third home, at relatives, in the hide - leatherman type tool, quality folder, Swiss knife - minimum is Huntsman, better is Swiss champ or champion.

In each knock about jacket, a folder, a leatherman type tool.

One size does not fit all.  A gentleman's Al Mar at a formal dinner is not the same as a Buck 110 in Afghanistan.  

Speaking about Afghanistan.  My late wife carried three knives.  I carried five - and this was in the 1970s.  However, you don't need to load up unless you are truly looking at shtf.

Benchmade autoknife, because it's the ultimate status symbol here.

Grandfather sharpens surgical instruments for a living and sharpens it for me. I can easily shave hair with it. Only problem is, sometimes I so much as look at it wrong and I have a random cut on a finger or hand.
