Default What's your every day carry knife?

I have several but I've had this one for a long time and I don't like scratching up my nice knives. Not the most fancy and it's a little bulkier than I like. Doesn't leave a lot of room left in my pocket for other stuff. Other than that it's been a good knife. What knife or knives do y'all like to carry?

I got too used to wearing that band-aid. Showing how good I am with a blade I guess.LOL

After that incident I probably should downgrade to a butter knife.

SOG Pentagon Elite. I got lucky in the early 2000's and bought one in Coronado that was priced incorrectly for $35. It was the best knife I've had before or since. I've bought 3 now, and have only had to buy them because one came up missing during a move and the 2nd was stolen.

SOG makes a good knife. Can't beat $35 for one of those son of a guns.

I carried a Kershaw Hotwire for a while but it ain't got a lock on it and it's an assisted open knife. That son of a gun will spring open in your pocket. I didn't think that was too good so I started leaving that sumbuck at home.

Y'all that carry a fixed blade, how do you carry it? I don't know why I just feel like it would take some getting used to. I have a few fixed blades that would be right for carrying I just haven't.

Ouch! Not cheap knives either. Hopefully it didn't get lost or swiped. Those Zero Tolerance knives are sweet. Not one you wanna lose for sure.

I know how much those knives go for. Makes me cringe. You rock a high dollar letter opener chief. I'm sure it's laying on your desk. Surely it is.

I carry a razor blade folder. Cheap and easy. Carried a case sodbuster Jr for several years. Got it as a graduation present almost 20 years ago. Decided to put it in the safe for my son/grandson some day.

A good while back I bought several of these for about $30 each and keep them on top of my gun safe. If i misplace one I just grab another until the first one shows up.

At the moment my EDC is a S&W Drop point folder. I’ve been pleased with it as I abuse everyday carry knives and use them at work regularly. And it’s held up well.
