What knife do you carry in your pocket?

With all the talk about guns lately, we should not ignore the handy knife as a great tool that could also be used for self defense.

-Legal and easy to carry just about anywhere in the world
-Does a lot more than a pistol..open boxes, cut hot dogs, peel fruits...

Emerson CQC7s for me.

I have a little leatherman micra on my keyring



This lives in my desk and works as a letter opener for special letters. It's a commemorative knife for a friend on a gun and knife forum who passed away.



This one was a stocking filler a couple of days ago. I've carried it since I got it.


Before anyone asks, of course the last two are legal

I collect knives so what I carry changes quite frequently, from old favourites to new toys.



Currently I'm switching between a Spyderco Poliwog and a Woodard pocket-pro


And I keep a Leatherman micra with my carkeys on a beltclip

I have several different Benchmade Knives that I carry daily. Currently I'm carrying a Osbourne 960 in red. I prefer knives that don't have a serrated portion, but those are getting less common these days. Apparently everyone loves the serrated knives. I find that if they are kept sharp that a non serrated blade cuts better.



a Leopard cub


and AFCK


Mini Reflex


I've got a few more including an Emerson with the tanto blade like the one above, but I usually carry those pictured.

I'd really like to get an AFO, but at around $150 a pop for a pocket knife and so much other stuff to spend money on....

I carry cheap knives.
I'm a mechanic, and my knives tend to be abused and damaged.


1) A Pakistan POS folder that has one straight-razor type blade + a clip point blade. The straight-razor edge makes good for scraping gasket surfaces, and the clip point is good for poking stuff. Plastic "bone" handle inlays broke off early, so I replaced them with real wood.

2) Chinese automatic similar to that last Benchmade that masraum posted. CF handle, 440 blade. Not bad for a few $.

3) Folding utility knife. Not as multi-talented as the Pakistan folder, but has the advantage of using replaceable razor blades.

4) Small clip point "old timer." This is probably the nicest of my knives. I guess that's sad, in a way.

I also keep a knockoff leatherman in my truck glovebox.

Boker with a 3" blade and titanium handle. Really feels good in the hand. In practical use it is more show than go.

Leatherman always, but it is on my belt, not my pocket, does that count?

I carry a little Victorinox "Swiss Army knife" on the keychain and a Gerber Legend on the belt.

I'm on the lookout for a folder "combat" knife with a reversible clip (I'm a lefty). Will probably end up with a Benchmade.

Leatherman Micra in my pocket - the scissors seem to be used more than the other features.

Shuie, the Axis lock kicks butt, doesn't it? I used to carry my various liner locks, but since I got the 960 with the Axis lock it's pretty much the only thing that I carry.

I like it. I didnt have it handy for the pic but I have the bigger version as well. The full size axis lock and the Emerson are too big for me to be able fit anything else in my pocket when I have them so they dont get used as much.
