I had an old Case Barlow knife with red bone handles for a long time which I lost. I just replaced it with a Case Sodbuster Junior for my everyday carry. I have some other knives for special purposes. What do you all carry?

I carry a very small knife in recent years, don't often need a larger one and as I've gotten older I don't like a lot in my pockets, unless its cash!

I carry a Case Trapper w/ bone handle. Had that one about 20 yrs. now. Bought it at Willey Knives in Delaware. Small place off rte.13 a bit, but if you catch them open, it's a real knife shop and pretty dang cool.

Big fan of the Leatherman Juice C2 multitool. I am currently carrying #4. The first one is at the bottom of the lake, second is somewhere in the yard and #3 broke. I pitched it before remembering it had a 25 year warranty. Not bad for about a 14 year span

My first day of kindergarten in 1956, I was sent to the prinicpals office for having a knife. He asked me why I had a knife. I replied(as Dad taught me) "a man allways carries a knife". Mr Leonard then quickly said to me "and he keeps it in his pocket. Get back to class". For 7 years, it was never a problem.

I learned at Scouts, the Army, and working construction, to carry a cheap knife for the people that had to borrow one. I also carry a good Camillus or Wenger scout type knife(it don't get loaned). The Leathermen that I carried were nice but too heavy. Good Luck, Rick

Buck Omni Hunter and a Leatherman Wave when at work or outdoors. Just the Wave when out and about.

Got asked when at a store recently if the pouch on my belt contained a knife. When I replied it did, the lady at the counter replied 'good'.

From my maternal grandfather, Raymond Harm Winterboer:

"I can't believe a grown man over the age of 12 could leave the house in the morning without a knife."

For hunting and butchering, a Case 5" blade leather grip M.O.D. gave me before we were married almost 48 years ago. In my pocket for day to day use,a Languiole single folding, with 4" blade, and on my belt in it's sheath, my surgery knife, a three blade Buck, kept razor sharp at all times. It has castrated more cats, bulls, and done more minor surgery than you want to hear about. One of my favourites was a Shrade three blade folding knife, carried it for almost thirty years until it ended up going through an ice fishing hole. Yes, I shed a tear, I loved that knife!

 The C2 is 3x1. small enough to fit good in your pocket, but still big enough to do most jobs. Occasionally the blade or pliers are too small for the job, but that is what the tool box is for

"I can't believe a grown man over the age of 12 could leave the house in the morning without a knife."

I don't carry one anymore.  Used to carry a small tooth-pick of a Buck knife, but have since stopped carrying them altogether.  Instead, I have ones stashed in various locations in the case I ever need them for a specific purpose.  One in my glove-box for opening letters/paychecks and packaging while in the car.  Another in the car, tucked between the passenger seat and console for dispatching game --you would not believe how many deer with broken legs I've "shown mercy" to because people hit them and didn't have a way to end them.  I keep a Leatherman in the toolbox in my car, too.

I keep my box-cutter beside my computer monitor at work for when parts come in, and other forms of general box-opening.  Another one in my tool box that gets used mostly for cutting fuel lines.  

Other than that, the only other knives I tend to need in my day-to-day are ones for cooking, and they stay in their sheathes in the drawer.

I'll spare the extra weight and crap in my pockets.
