"My EDC is a Kershaw Burst with Speedsafe. I did swap between that and a CRKT M16 however my wife took that one over. When I bought them I went in to purchase a Benchmade Griptalion but considering I work on bridges for a living a drop would not be…"

"I live in the UK so EDC pocket knife choices are hugely limited...no switchblades, balisongs or locking blades.   I carry a Wenger Soldier (I've carried a SAK of some description or another since I was a young…"

"Back home in the states I carry a leatherman wave or a cheap no-name folding knife. My good buck knife stays on my desk. Here there are metal detectors everywhere, so no EDC."

"I also like the Victorinox Multi-tool, use it at work almost everyday. To me, the Victorinox is made with such a high level of craftsmanship and the quality of metal used just beats Leatherman and Gerber hands-down. Though, I will have to check out…"

"I carried the Gerber Hinderer on duty for awhile, fully serrated with a blunt tip, seatbelt cutter and glass breaker...It's a good knife, deployed quick and I could use it with gloves on,  but I like the Leatherman for the screwdriver...I…"

"I carry my Leatherman on my belt and a Maxam liner-lock rescue knife clipped to my pocket. I love my leatherman, but some times getting the blade out in a hurry is problematic."

TKM replied to Dana Larson's discussion Pocket Knives
"On duty, I carry a Leatherman PST on my hip, which does everything from screw the shoulder mic onto my radio, light repairs around the office, and cut whatever needs cutting...Being that I use the blade on the PST for work, I keep a small lockback…"

"When out camping I always bring along my grandfather's Schrade 346 folding knife. Every I carry a Benchmade folder, and I agree that a Leatherman is a must. They are just too useful."

Nathan Noble replied to Dana Larson's discussion Pocket Knives
"Living out in the country as I do, I don't have to worry as much about the type or size of blade I carry until I go to my job... So my choices for an E.D.C.(every. Day carry) are a little more open than say your average office worker. I use a…"

"I usually just carry around a multitool, maybe a safety knife for work. Technically not supposed to have either on me while on the job, but they're so much better than trying to cut through lumber banding with a centimeter-long piece of dull…"

"While in the office, I carry a Buck Whittaker, which has a tiny blade and an LED light. Really handy. While out and about, I always carry my swiss army knife (Spartan model).  While hiking or working around the house, I carry my very early…"

"I rotate my knife EDC but most times its a strider smf and a multitool of some kind."

Xander Cesari replied to Dana Larson's discussion Pocket Knives
"Who says that cheap and quality can't be had in one knife? Try an Opinel; French made, carbon steel, folding blade and terrific quality. I paid about $13 for the last one I purchased, so if it gets lost or stolen you won't even turn…"

David replied to Dana Larson's discussion Pocket Knives
"I carry an emerson commander and a gerber multiplier. both are great but may be to big for some men to comfortably carry daily or in some types of business. I have buck and spyderco, benchmade, victronox crnt and others but the two I carry every day…"
