What pocket knife do YOU carry?


I've been carrying this Kershaw Ken Onion designed kanife for more than a year now, and pretty happy with it so far.   Of course, I broke the blasted point off, as I do with almost every pointy knife I own.   I tend to poke and pry at things.... 

So anyway, I like to keep a knife or two in reserve, and I find myself somewhat bereft of such at the moment.  Unthinking, I have either given away or sold every spare pocket knife I owned that didn't have sentimetal* value.

That leaves me browsing the Amazon knife store for a backup again, and I'm kind of liking this pocket sword here:  Kershaw Brawler Speedsafe Knife.   It pushes me to ask..... What's in YOUR pocket?

I carry a SpyderCo Delica 4. Works very well for me.

Kershaw's Ken Onion "Needs Work" smooth blade version or a "Leek" half serrated for dress occasions.

A 4" (or so) Benchmade in a hip pocket, and a Victorinox CyberTool 29 and a 2.5" Gerber locker in front.

I've been carrying a Kershaw "Zing" for a couple years now, and have found it to be The Perfect Blade (for me).

Prior to that I've carried Gerbers, CRKTs, and other Kershaws. My knife shelf at home has all those, plus some Victorinox and KaBar stuff.

A Boy Scout pattern by Keen Kutter. That's my work knife. My home knife is a Lil' MUK by Blind Horse Knives.

Kershaw ZT 0350 (from their annual factory sale)

Leatherman Juice CS4 has a blade, so technically sort of a knife...

Kershaw model 5200. Bought at their factory sale, mine is special because it has laser engraving on the side, that says "Laser Engraving".

Other options in my desk drawer are:2 Gerber folders, 4 Swiss army knives (3 Victorinox and 1 Wenger), and 6 other Kershaw knives.

No, I don't have a knife problem. Why do you ask?

I carry two, a twenty year old Gerber Silver Knight on its second blade and the other is a Leatherman Micro.

Simple for me. I have been carrying a Buck Stockman 301 for about 30 years. Been through 3 of them now, not because they broke or anything like that. I just lost them..., one time at the airport. 3 blades are really nice. One for eating and everyday use for everything (clip), one for cutting things (spey - try to keep sharp always)and one for soft metal and such (sheepsfoot). Can't beat it!
