    I was just wondering if CCW was perhaps correlated with carrying folders.

    I've continuously carried the folder I bought for $12 at a mil surplus store since I was 13.

    Even in high school, the principal had no complaint when I whipped it out to attend to an innocuous cutting task in his presence.

    Today, of course, that would have gotten me a firing squad.

    Well, I used Other.

    I don't always carry a firearm. I always carry a folder.

    Both, started carrying knives camping at age 7-8, everyday at 18, and firearms regulary since sept 2003. I find the knife gets used more and is more useful on a everyday basis, the handgun more comforting on a daily basis :).

    You can stick me in Whole Hog's catagory.

    My knife (Gerber folder I picked up somewhere) is either in my pocket or right next to the keys & wallet. The pistol is in the safe. There are days where if I know I will be going somewhere that a pistol isn't allowed but a knife will be ok then the pistol will stay home.

    I've carried folders all my life, mostly for work, and have only carried a gun for a year. The knife has nothing to do with the gun - I'd carry it anyway. This way you're just prepared for any shootin' OR cuttin' that might be needed. :)

    I carry a Kimber Compact along a cheap and dull folder. When its misplaced I carry a CRKT M16-12z, which is normally used for work since it actually keeps an edge and doesn't need sharpened twice a week.

    Does the Swiss Army option count as a folder?

    Stealing a line from Whole Hog --

    I don't always carry a firearm. I always carry a folder.

    That's me.

    Usually Firearm and folder, but sometimes a fixed blade, and sometimes 2 folders.

    Sig P239 or P228, depending on weather, and either a mini Griptilian or CRKT Hawk D.O.G. Even if I'm in a spot where carrying a sidearm isn't an option, I've always got the folder.

    I don't consider the knife a weapon, though. It's just a handy thing to have.

    (When I first saw the title of this thread, I thought he was asking about carrying a folding-stock long gun for CCW.:D

    I've always carried a pocketknife as a tool. Currently I have two, a Swiss army knife and a Gerber LST-2.

    Now the purpose...

    I wanted to see whether a folder would be a tip-off that someone is CCW. It looks like it might indeed.

    I was taught from an early age that the only correct response when asked, "Do you have a knife?" is: "Always!";)

    Since it became legal for me to do so, locally, I have "Always!" carried both.

    Before it was legal, ...well....:rolleyes:

    Have folder will travel, have been carrying one or another since I was 12.

    Currently a 1911 and a Gerber 650 or an older buck folder.

    Get outside the city and most everyone has a folder riding in pocket or on the hip.

    I'm in the both category, but the knife I carry is more of a tool than weapon. It's a small Kershaw spring "assisted" piece. I also carry a "Tinker" model Swiss Army Knife and a Leatherman tool.
