Your carry knives: Clip or holster?

    Almost all of my knives are carried by using the clip. Even the balisongs. Only a knife without a clip would have a holster for me...with the exception of the BM Infidel.

    Do you clip your knife to your pocket or carry in a sheath/holster?

    I would go with a clip; works with everything, even drawstring or sweat pants with no belt...just my .2 cents, YMMV

    All my knives are clipped unless I am hunting, hiking, camping, and other such activities.

    Well, I carry 2 knives (a little thin folder and a larger, stouter 3" folder) every day, those are both clipped to a pocket. If I anticipate trouble and for whatever reason can't bring a gun with me, I also OC a 6" dagger in a belt sheath.

    The clip is OK for some of my knives, but I use a holster for the kerambit.

    Neither. I drop a Case Stockman in my pocket. So far, it cuts what needs cutting.

    The only cased knives I carry that way are multitools or fixed blades.

    I carry an older Spydero Endura clipped IWB. I like the Endura because it's a decent size blade and flat enough to carry comfortably. Cased, I have a Leatherman and a cell phone. And a slip joint in my pocket, today a Victorinox farmer.

    If I carry any of my leathermans I use a sheath.
    Otherwise I will carry it in my pocket with a lanyard.

    I always carry a folder clipped to my strong side pocket (yes always, unless I'm in a situation where I can't legally carry a knife, like on an airplane or something). I occasionally carry a small fixed blade, sheathed strong side or weak side, as the mood strikes me. I very rarely carry a multitool, holstered on my weak side.

    I also have a smaller 'keychain' multitool, that I basically never carry, because I've found that I have enough crap on my key ring already.

    My EDC is a Boy Scout pattern made by Keen Kutter, carried in an open-topped belt sheath. If I'm wearing clothing that has no belt, I usually carry a Wenger Soldier in the pocket with a lanyard for pulling it out.

    All but three of our knives (I share mine with my daughter) use a sheath. Of the other three, two have a clip, and one is a flap-over holster. The sheath type knives are our hunting knives. The other three are daily-carry types. The reason we like the like the clip or holster type is in case of an accident.

    In my 1995, 5-vehicle-accident, the seatbelt would not release, and the interior was filled with "smoke". Who knew airbags release "smoke". It pretty much scared the feces outta me. Wouldn't you know, I didn't have a knife. :( Well, now I always carry the means of extricating myself and others. :cool: The problem with a pocketknife is, how do you reach into your pocket when the seatbelt has you locked-down with python-like pressure?

    Cool thread...makes me stop and think.
