I have an Ontario RAT2, Kershaw Hawk and a Kershaw Reverb that I rotate. I have been carrying the Hawk more often since it is small and light. It is a little smaller than a trapper, but with a longer blade. Some of the knife laws here are left open to interpretation though most officers don't care to much, but would rather not leave that up to them. Blade length under 3", no double edged blades and the one that is really open to interpretation is no knife that is considered "stabby". Not really sure what that means. Maybe anything with a point? I'm pretty sure it is meant for dagger style knives, but it is an open description.

At work I carry a Spyderco Endura strong side clipped and a Delica inside hip pocket. And a K-Bar TDI on the belt support side. "J"frame fills support side pocket.

When not working I carry either a Endura or a Emerson, strong side, clipped. A Gerber LST loose in same pocket, and a CRKT "SCRUB" secured under my belt at about 11:oclock I use a zip tie to run the belt through. Poor mans "Clinch Pic". Off side pocket gets same attention as above, so no knife there.

My EDC for the last few years has been the Zero Tolerance 0301. I have field dressed a 4x4 Roosevelt elk, and chopped down small trees. It a beast of a folder fit for a modern day Viking warrior.

This week i was given a very slightly used S/W Extreme Ops 105. Five dollars spent and notice I left off the "well".

So, gotta carry it to not offend someone's feelings. Not 440C like she was told but 7cr17mov. Gonna carry it to make her happy and hopefully not lose a finger. Looks kinda Snoop Dog blingy too so I'm trying to figure out how to tone it down.

Honestly it's not too awful bad but I predict it will not hold up like my import Kershaws.

Benchmade Mini Griptilian, and or Mini Freek. The first being in 154cm and the later being in S30v. Also tend to carry a cheaper knife with me. Right now it’s a Bestech Grumpus, though a Kershaw Blur and some Walmart $4 knives often make it into the rotation.

For the last few months I've been carrying a Victorinox executive in the coin pocket of my jeans. I find a small SAK is enough knife for life in and around Georgetown Texas. If I go fishing or woods walking, it gets augmented with a small fixed blade like a mora.

I find a small coin pocket size pocket knife that fits flat in the coin pocket leaves my right hand pocket free for the small handgun I keep in that pocket. If I am going down around 6th street in Austin, I carry a bigger gun, depending on if it's night or day.

I was going to post a picture of them, but apparently we can only do so if the images are online somewhere now? No option to upload them from my PC. I carry a Leatherman Core, a Buck folder, and a no name chinese "throw away" folder.

I'm not a huge fan of Spyderco so I was surprised when I bought a Spyderco Stretch about 5 years ago and have been carrying it everyday since then. It's light, thin, and made of a unique carbon steel that acts like stainless. Easy to sharpen and holds an edge. The alloy is ZDP-189 (some Japanese blend) that I'm really fond of. Blade is approximately 3-1/2" long and the handle is about 4-1/2". It has a sturdy locking mechanism and there's no play in the blade/handle joint. Not pretty but very functional.

Outdoor Edge Onyx EDC. Razor sharp replaceable blades. Two blades come with the knife, and packs of replacements are inexpensive. I resharpen several times, until it won't take an edge very well, and then replace the blade.

Lately It's either a BM Griptillian or Spyderco Tenacious. If discretion is needed a SAK Camper goes in the pocket.

It is always varying for me as to the specific knife.
But I always carry a SAK, full size Leatherman, 1 to 2 pocket multi-tools, a 3.4"~4" folder or auto and a 2ish" folder. I then have more (and larger) in my bag and car.

Camping and heavy duty- small 12 inch machete for cap work and plain butcher knife for food prep.

That's it.
Thanks for suggestion

Many may laugh at this. But I am currently carrying a lightning otf spear point serrated. Its a $30 knife. But I use it every day. And i do construction. So its done everything from shaping treated 2x4s, opening bags of concrete and just about anything you can think to use a knife for.
I've had this knife going on a year now. And still haven't sharpened it. For the price its been pretty handy.
