    what knife

    I notice that a lot of guys who carry guns carry a folding knife. Its not so much for defense as a tool. I am curious, what brand do you like. Obviously I haven’t listed ALL of them, just the top 10 I could think of.

    I carry an AL-Mar Eagle Ultralite most days, as it is very light and thin. I wear business casual here at work and it carries well in dress pants. I usually carry a Microtec UDT in my jeans, and a CRKT M16 when camping, hiking, hunting etc (complimented by a sheathe knife).

    Used to carry a Gerber up until a couple months ago when my mother's husband gave me a Sheffield he found while out walking. I like the blade a lot better and can get it open with the flick of my thumb.

    Right now, I've got a Leatherman Tool on my belt and a Swiss Army knife in my pocket. The Leatherman has the pliers, and the Swiss Army has the cork screw. Don't leave home without em!

    Unless I'm going to be tinkering, I usually only carry the Swiss Army knife.

    Kershaw Whirlwind when I'm not at work, and either a Leatherman or my Gerber Clutch (the Clutch is so small, I always have it in my pocket).

    $5 no name/made in China knife at work, along with my work issued Leatherman (1 of about 4 I've gotten from work).

    I always have my Uncle Henry 3 blade general purpose pocket knife with me. If hunting I will also have a Buck folder on my belt. If Elk hunting I will have a home made 8" heavy knife for cutting through bone etc. in the truck or my pack.

    None of them are intended for Delf Defense.

    Ken Onion Leek. Great assisted opener; a few complains though: I miss the rubber grips my Gerber had. And the straight blade is less functional than a tradional curved blade. The assisted opening is amazing!!

    I carry a leatherman during the week and I carry a folding type razor knife that looks like a regular pocket knife all the time. I got tired of breaking the tips off of regular pocket knives and buying new ones. Funny how things go! I've yet to break one of the razor blades but I do dull the hell out of them. It's actually a pretty cool knife. It's like an un-sprung switch blade in that you can flick your wrest and the blade is out and locked.

    I think I've always carried a pocket knife since I was a kid. I've owned all thicknesses of swiss army knives and carried a cheapo "made in China" knife up until a couple months ago. But now I have a Kershaw Ken Onion Leek with the black and white smoked handle. I love it. The only problem is it's almost too pretty to actually use.

    I started carrying a CRKT M16 in my pocket on a near daily basis last summer. Now I just wish I was able to put a decent edge on it.

    I actually just odered me a Smith and Wesson SWAT with assisted opening, but won't get it til about the middle of next week. I did carry a Kershaw, until recently the opening spring broke.

    Benchmade Dejavoo. No spring to assist, just a flick of the wrist.
