Okay, this is the lounge, I think this is for off-topic speculation...but based on some OT speculation in another thread...what kinds of every day carry knives do you knife enthusiasts usually put in your pockets? I am some time away from a serious interest in knives, but I am a gadget junkie and here's the stuff that end up in my pocket:

Spyderco Delica, plastic handle, VG-10 serrated/plain combo...I think this is about the best basic knife anyone could buy.
Leatherman Charge Xti with the CM-154 blade (this thing is bulky but it's the handiest tool I have ever had)
Old, beaten up Spyderco Worker with SS handle when I can't find my others. :D

Curious to hear what you LEOs carry. Mostly Spydercos?

Hah. Well, lactation, labradoodles, etc. are all allowed, I guess it's possible.

But NO. :lol: :twisted:

Whoops, edited to say that's a leatherman wave, not charge. :oops:

i've never been a big knife guy. i never carry one off-duty (i rarely even carry my gun off-duty). on-duty i carry some Smith and Wesson cheapy that i got at a sporting goods store for about $15 (partially serrated). i know if i got a nice one, i'd just lose it and be ticked off...

TRUE!

Actually, I haqve a single-blade jacknife from my father that's so thin I can't read the stamping on the blade. The outside is hand-carved tusk or bone or something, that looks like Lady Liberty (kinda).....it too is very worn.

But I like knives and wish I knew more about them, like youse guys!

Then of course I have knives in my fishing tackle box......

Here's a cool story (true): I was fishing off the wharf here a few years ago and caught a salmon that was attached (already hooked but dropped) to someone else's Shakespeare Ugli Stick and reel! A fish plus gear!

That was back when salmon seasons were good.......... :(

My son collected them for a while. We used to hit all the knife and gun shows.
Cool story, but do you really consider the Shakespeare Ugli Stick as real fishing gear. :D :wink:

I carry an old "Old Timer". As is custom for a country boy, I've always carried a small pocket knife. Even as kids, rarely would you find a boy in school that did not have a knife. Funny how we never stabbed anyone, my how things have changed. On duty, I carry a cheap auto open knife. I have a Benchmade, but I'm afraid I'll lose it. There is also a Leatherman on our duty belts. Unlike you Tim, I usually carry a pistol off-duty or at least have one close by.

Spyderco Delica with 0/50 blade (half straight, half serrated) EVERYWHERE I go.
I think this is the best manufactured knife you can buy, all things considered. It is just an awesome product.
