Victorinox Champion SAK (discontinued in 1986, replaced by Swiss Champ in 1987.....). I have carried one since DEC 1986 when I bought it new for $28 with Chrismas Stocking money.....

Kershaw - Ken Onions. The Speed Safe mechanism has spoiled me rotten. Boa and a Chive. Man, that little Chive is a scalpel. Scary sharp. I tried the shave a bit of hair off the arm thing like I do with all new knives... it took off a layer of skin! I think that just might be the sharpest knife I've ever had out of the box.

The Ken Onion knives are really outstanding. I didn't think of Kershaw as a top-drawer tactical/utility knife company. I may have to buy another Chive just for a spare...

Around my "fat waist" I wear a Bowen "knife" money belt. In my right hand pocket is the Cold Steel Ti-Lite, and in a sheath on my belt is a Victornox Multi-Tool...

Daily wear is either a Spyderco Serrated or Kershaw Blackhorse. Just added a little Gerber 1/2 and 1/2 blade for the front pocket.

On the trail/out in the woods I usually leave the folders behind and carry a Ontario Bowie, ~skelotonized~ Buckmaster, or a Buckmaster with a Mountainer Swiss

While at work, (as a paramedic), I carried a Gerber Multitool on one hip, a Cold Steel Voyager with a tanto blade (4", serrated) on the other. In my right front pocket, I had a Spyderco Endura, serrated, and a SAK Tinker. My left pocket had a Spyderco Delica, also serrated. In my right uniform shirt pocket, I kept a Spyderco Rescue, serrated, of course. It may sound like a lot, but I had a use for all of them.
Since I was disabled and retired, I keep the Gerber and the Cold Steel in my backpack, on my wheelchair, and a Cold Steel Mini tac, also serrated, where I can get it quick.
I love blades!!!!!

When I volunteer with the Rescue Squad I carry a Benchmade Mel Pardue switch blade, most of the time I carry my Spyderco Delica, and sometimes I carry my first Valentines Gift: SOG Auto Clip fully serrated edge. Knives, like jewelry, should be changed out regularly!

They let you carry a switchblade in Maryland?

Police and Firefighters are given a pass on automatic knives when in uniform, and on duty. Ever try to open a blade while holding on to the side of an overturned vehicle in a ditch with a summers thunderstorm rushing about you, the car, and the tangled up in a seatbelt infant's seat? Complete with infant. The ability to bring a knife into play with the press of a button is a godsend at that point.

I also briefly considered using the knife on a racehorse years ago. The barn was on fire, and the thing was so scared that he bit my hand when I reached for the bridle. Would have been better if he hadn't held on!! I was contemplating sawing off his head when a sudden increase in the heat and smoke provided me with the "better idea". Using my newfound adrenaline rush, I decked the thing. He let go, and we both escaped.

Knives are a tool for use, and one with sometimes unusual uses. We arrived at the scene of an accident early one morning, finding a person thrown headfirst through the windshield. He was trapped about the neck by the windshield. A Buck 110 was used to cut the broken windshield in a circle around him. After he was removed, the knife was used to cut the circle away from him prior to his chopper ride to Shock Trauma. The knife looked like a saw blade after that, and took a week of on again, off again, sharpening to regain it's edge. I still have these knives.

Buckknives are my least favorite. JR, but that's just me. I carry a Case stockman for small stuff and a Spydaco Endura witha partially serrated blade. It's a good work knife and a lot less expensive than some. Easy to open one-handed.

Sam, to give you an idea how long ago that was, I bought a Spyderco Standard when they first came out, and have had one of them since then. The Buck sits in a place of honor in my collection. I had bought that Buck as a camp knife in 1967, in Da Nang. Went through a half-dozen sheathes before retiring it.

The original Spyderco was lost in a blizzard, while operating at a building collapse, around 1994. I've had the next one since then. It sits on my belt as I type this.
