My knife needs aren't very demanding, so I'm good with an inexpensive Chinese-made thumbhole lockblade.
When not working, I have an Old Timer 3-blade penknife.

Speaking of options, has anyone experience with the S&W knife / rescue tool?

Who is curious.

I agree with the preference for the Spyderco hole; I also like the Axis lock.

Absolutely the most practical knife I ever owned was a deluxe Boy Scout knife given to me by my father a long time ago. It had rosewood scales and a large blade, awl, can opener, screwdriver/bottle opener and a phillips screwdriver bit. I carried it for decades until I dropped it 100+ feet to an auditorium floor and the scales shattered. I don't know what happend to it after that, it just disappeared.
Some years later I was buying my older son Cub Scout stuff and suddenly remembered that knife. Son-of-a-gun, they were still making it! After seeing the price ($75 over 25 years ago), I left it there. Maybe I'll go looking for one as a retirement toy.
Nowdays, I generally carry a single blade lockback. Virginia law specifies a 3 inch blade, but in rural areas, the LLEA folks don't worry too much about that. If I'm gonna be working with livestock or am at work, there's two available. I really like an older Cold Steel Voyager and have a couple other discontinued models with carbon steel blades I like a lot. Those last ones have a hole instead of a stud for opening.

A Case Stockman and a Spyderco Endura. I used to carry a Kershaw Leek but it's in the box with about 20 other folders.

Cheapo Tru-Spec M1 "Tactical Folder" I got free with a case of Smith & Wesson SW747PLT flashlight/shanks. (I have friends and family who have to work in Victim Disarmament Zones, so I'm always looking for useful "Not Prohibited" tools they can defend themselves--and in some cases the kids entrusted to their care--with.)

Could stand to be a little sharper, but it does what I need it to. Here in Burn-in-Hellifornia Del Norte, we're limited to 3" or less, no gravity, spring or centrifugal-force assist.
I keep praying for the Lord to trigger a septic backup and drown the Sh*tty of Seattle in their own fecal matter, but so far He has not taken action upon my humble request.

IF I'm "in town", it's a small/light/sharp WINCHESTER lockblade made by Gerber.
For outdoor activities, it's the 4" lockblade GERBER that is made for paramedics/EMTs.
BOTH "do what needs doing" & do some task every day.
(Btw, for most Dixie-born men of my generation, IF we have our trousers on we are carrying a blade of some sort & always have since boyhood.)

I finally found my Swiss Army Knife, which was hidden in the junk that came out of my wrecked Honda Fit. That rides in my pocket. Still considering a carry multi-tool with a fast opening main blade. I have a Leatherman, but it's a bit heavy for the pocket and I have mixed emotions about belt pouches.
Who is a curious fellow and is looking at clip on knives and multitools.

I Just ordered two autos:
a) a 2" blade (4.75" open) GT (OTS) GT-104 black ATS-34 blade, aluminum handles, textured grips. A $100.00 knife for $38.94. Score!
b) An "authentic" Ganzo G719 one-sided G-10 black scale, clip point, 440c 3.34" stainless steel blade, (7 7/8" open) Inexpensive, yet durable ($18.49 shipped to my door). When it arrives, it will make for a great carry in my EDC rotation. You may want to look into one of these, as they are an excellent value for the money!
Life is good

Here's my daily carries. The 2 on the right are Smith&Wesson, the one on the left is an old Appalachian Trail 2 blade.

Just picked this up from Columbia River Knife & Tool. It's their model M16. I'm really liking it so far.

Been taking more trips to CA which means leaving my CC handgun at home. This is about the only time I ever carry a knife for defensive purposes. Still my primary purpose for carrying a knife is as a handy tool to have on me. So when carrying a knife in CA, I have found a great way to have a "tactical folder", and still have the convenience of my Swiss Army Knife. The Victorinox One Handed Trekker.
This is a great knife for every day carry. One handed opening, good quality blade, and the other tools I commonly use (can't live without the tweezers and toothpick).
It's not quite has handy as my Victorinox Huntsman, but it's pretty darned close. My Huntsman is an older one that came with the eyeglass screwdriver in the corkscrew, and the needle that slips under the scales (that's a handy thing to have). Just hard to beat the convenience of a good Swiss Army Knife.
