    A Zero Tolerance 301, but today is the exception to the rule. Usually it is a Kershaw Blur or Leek.

    A Real McCoy. Classic three blade stockman, walnut scales. They're really pretty well made knives and I like it a lot they are made in Mt. Ida Arkansas. Not expensive either, especially for what you get. Fit and finish are very good.

    Boker Plus 3.5" VG-10, Titanium frame lock. Really like it's thinness and it's light for EDC and it's clip is at the top so it is very concealable. Holds an edge for a good amount of time as well.

    Kershaw Anso Fraxion. The carbon fiber scales make it very light. It’s been my new favorite.

    Kershaw Leek. Love that thing. Inexpensive, easy to sharpen and easy one handed operation. Plus I won't cry if I lose it :)

    Why do people like liner lock knives? I find it awkward and it's the only lock that's ever failed on me - which was probably user related, but still.

    I'm not big on them either. The axis lock is handy as is the one on the Manix2. The lockback is the strongest. There are some cool YouTube vids with tests on lock strength.

    Give me a slipjoint with no lock or a lock that will work, Lockback has never failed me with some rough times to try it and while Axis has yet to be put to the test by me in a hard spot - it looks to be the best of the best when it comes to locking a folding knife into the functional equivalent of a fixed blade knife. Linerlock cut me once.

    Most often I just carry one knife on me, because I’m the type of guy that will bring a gun to a knife fight. :)
    Today I have my Myerchin 01375, that my daughter gave me for my birthday.

    I have another knife I brought to work with me that I picked up yesterday. The blade is a POS, but I bought it because of the handle.

    Today I carried my Vic Small Tinker in my watch pocket, a Leatherman Ps4 Squirt on my key chain, and a Condor Compact Kephart on my belt. Those have been with me all month. Really liking the Condor Compact Kephart.

    The crossbar locks like the Axis are the stronger than lockbacks that can wear and release. Many here don't trust poorly executed liner locks, with good reason, since they have the reputation for failing. There are other interesting locks like the compression lock that are strong and reliable and the button locks are just a version of a crossbar lock.

    On the test I watched from BladeHQ the blade on the Endura actually sheared off before the lock gave way. It won that test. These as aren't conclusive but still fun to watch.

    Today a full sized Griptillan rides in my pocket, the Micra on my keychain and a Sidekick on my belt.

    Of course, there's Andrew Demko's Tri-Ad lock which combines the compressive strength attributes of crossbar locks with the other strengths of a back lock. And there are push button release compression locks, as seen on Kevin Smock's SK23 and the Spyderco mass produced version of the same. I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting about at this hour.
