    This is probably the only time I will be able to post this without someone (rightly) telling me to use the search function to find the answer.;)

    So, what knife (knives for ROTL:D) is on you right now? I don’t envision myself using a knife as a fighting tool so mine is one of the little Kershaw Ken Onion folders. I think it’s the Scallion, it’s the next size up from the smallest.

    What’s yours?

    Usually carry a Victorinox Swiss Army Officer's Model, and an Al Mar Eagle Ultralight. The handiest items on the Swiss Army are the tweezers and toothpick, the can opener and screw drivers get occasional use. The Al Mar comes in handy when I need to take apart boxes, and the 4" blade length was handy at a recent pot luck when we needed to take apart a spiral sliced ham.

    I put a plain edge Spyderco Delica plain edge in my pocket as a part of getting dressed. I add a Victorinox Cyber Tool 41 when I go to work (I am a field systems engineer for an ISP).

    Teeny Buck Light locking blade. One of the smallest locking blades there are. Very non-threatening looking but can be pretty effective.

    When I want to go "big" I carry the smaller of the two Timberline Kelly Worden Tacticals. Great knife. Got pinched with that bad boy trying to get into an NFL game this year. Oh well.

    I fall into the same camp as Tamara, depends on which day you ask me. I've managed to thin out the assortment a bit in the last year though. My most carried are my Sebenza and my SAK Executive; in my pocket right now is my Spyderco Lum (fixed blade) in a Buy Brown kydex sheath. I'd post a pic, but the attachment feature still isn't operative:(

    Victorinox Swiss Army executive.
    Kershaw 3 3/8" speedsafe.

    If I'm headed for the poop, I'd take a Gerber 5" boot, too, but that's unlikely, these days. (And it would only backup the rifle and handguns).:eek:

    Usually my old Benchmade Ascent 830. It may be the worst knife Benchmade makes, but I can use it for anything and if I lose it there's no reason to shed tears.

    Was in the Chicago suburbs with my in-laws this week, so I had my Tim Britton Anaconda. In-laws don't allow firearms. I also carry a Folts Mantis quite a bit. Both are really overkill for someone like me, but I'm a knife snob and I like fixed blades.

    Carried a big two-blade Case Trapper Christmas morning to deal with presents. :D

    Depends on where I'm going, but

    Just home from work I have on me a Leatherman Wave and a Microtech LCC D/A.

    It's hard to balance a Knife habit with a Gun habit. I gotta make more $$$$$$

    Right now I'm carrying a CRKT K.I.S.S., but I also change knives about like I change socks.

    My daily carry is a Benchmade 9050s. Mine has seen some use over the last several years. It's a tool, not a sock-drawer refugee.
    Mine also has *NO* markings on it.
    VHinch, I'm from Lambda Iota, 1978. I know what this is.

    Regards,
    Rabbit.

    REKAT Sifu, 5.45" blade, serial number one of the first 70 handground. I was the one that convinced REKAT to make this critter. Sadly out of production with the demise of REKAT (sigh). Anyways. One baaaad motorscooter. More on this piece here:

    http://www.ninehundred.com/~equalccw/knifelaw.html#K8

    Technically not a "pocketknife" because the first six had no pocket clips. I use an IWB sheath of my own design and construction:

    Cute little thing. My mom over reacted to it, awhile back, when I pulled it out of my pocket to cut a string for one of the kids.

    "You've got a knife in your pocket???"

    "Um, yeah, mom, it's a pocket knife." :rolleyes:

    "It's a really big!!! pocket knife!!! Is that legal?"

    "Um, yeah, mom, it is. Pocket knives are legal."

    "But that BIG??? Are you sure???"

    "Um, yeah, mom, I'm sure."

    "I'm worried about you, Kathy. First you start taking all those gun classes, and now you're carrying a knife!!. Are you sure you're not going a little overboard?"

    Poor mom. I think she wishes I were more of a girl.

    Varies with where I am going

    Anything from a Randall model 15 down to a Puma lock back Emperor pocket knife. Numerous Benchmades and MicroTechs. Leatherman Micra most of the time.

    Spyderco Endura. Of course I own a number of pocket knives but this is one of my faviorites. I would be lost without it. It boggles my mind that some people don't carry a pocket knife.

    I've got a plain-edge Endura on me when I'm "dressed up," and add an old Leatherman and an old Gerber folder when I'm in jeans.

    I have one of those nifty Leatherman Micras on my keychain; mostly have used the scissors on it.

    I love fixed-blades, but they aren't really very handy.

    I am not sure if this really counts, but I usually carry just a Leatherman Wave on my belt (right in front of my extra carry mag). That has a knife in it. I use to carry a SAK or a couple of cheaper stainless steel lockbacks by United.
