    I have a few I flip back and forth between:

    -Southern Grind Bad Monkey
    -Boker Epicenter
    -Protech Tr3 auto
    -Sog Arcitech
    -Many, many sub-$100 folders
    -Several small fixed blade customs

    All plain edge

    I have two. One is my CRKT M21-04G. The other is a CRKT Turtle set up as a money clip.

    I've considered getting a Griptillian when I can afford to splurge via their "design your own" page, but for a good working EDC knife, I have utterly no complaints about my M21.

    It varies a bit...

    Emerson Commander
    Emerson CQC-8
    Strider SJ75
    Strider SnG

    One of the above in my pocket and a LaGriffe around my neck...

    My EDC blade is a Kershaw Chill. I've had it about a year now and could not be happier.

    Always a Leatherman Blast or Original on belt. A Spyderco Endura IWB. Moore Maker small trapper or Case Bros. Barlow in pocket. SAK classic on key chain. Often on the weekend, the MM or CBB are traded out for a Vic Alox Farmer.

    Ever since I found my lost Benchmade Barrage, I've been paranoid about carrying it (been thinking about a lanyard to keep it secure) and have switched over to a cheap folder that I won't be upset about it it gets lost.

    I've actually been rotating through a few cheap folders that I don't care if they get lost.

    I do have my eye on a CRKT Folks Bowie minimalist, since I've been thinking about carrying a fixed blade over a folder for awhile now.

    Kershaw black vapor for the past 7 years. good knife for the money, takes and holds a good edge with minimal work. before that was a gerber and a spyderco delica 2. I miss both of those two the most of all I have used.

    I have to send my Spyderco Police 2 G10 in for repair (totally my fault, I broke the tip doing something stupid at work), so until it is fixed, I am carrying a CRKT M16-13T.

    I also carry a Leatherman Juice, which is supposed to prevent me from doing stupid things with my nice folders, but it doesn't always work out that way.

    I have a buddy who forges his own knives. He also built his own forge, which I always thought was pretty cool. He makes his knives out of old railroad spikes with birchwood handles. It's probably not the best metal to use...and definately not the best knife on the market, but it's has great balance, a sharp edge, and a whole lotta history pounded into it! I can't say I've ever owned a better knife.

    I am so boring with my Swiss Army, but it's a seriously useful knife.

    I am even more boring. I carry an old three blade Gerber. I've had it going on 30 years. I have some other knives, but this one stays in my pocket all the time. Play or work.

    I don't carry my Strider anymore since I lost the previous one, so I tend too carry a Benchmade - either the Griptilian or the awesome Bone Collector.

    Dr. Rob beat me to the punch. I thought I was going to win the boring award for my Swiss army Victorinox. Mommy bought it for me before a Boy Scout camp a coon's age ago. In the last week I fixed a coworkers chair, pulled out a sliver, and sliced open shipping boxes. Very useful.

    i have never been into the whole swiss army knife thing.. i guess since my dad, and i have always had toolboxes in the back of our trucks, the need for having a multi-tool just was never there...

    A toolbox in my pocket beats one on the nightstand or in the truck. :)

    Spyderco Endure 4 FFG in grey FRN, it's older now but sharpens well and still is rock solid, the clip's finish is worn from me bumping into all manner of things.

    Case Swayback Jack in CV for the last 3-4 years. Before that, since about 1976, a Case Small Trapper with a pen 2nd blade rather than a spey.
    I have a medium stockman in SST I take fishing or if I think I'm going to somehow get wet.

    Was carrying a Buck trapper for a good while (loved that little knife), but I misplaced it somewhere in the bedroom. For the time being I've been carrying an Opinel #8. Probably going to get a Case Mini-Trapper or a Buck Solitaire to carry instead just haven't ordered it yet.
