    Let’s see them. Also, the rational for carrying them and how you do it. I’ll start. Here’s my carry combo for the day; Spyderco Manix 2 XL in a sheath and an Atlantic Salt in my front pocket. Also carry a Swiss Tool in a kydex holster. Between those 3, I feel like I’m pretty much covered.

    I like to travel light so I usually have nothing in my pockets except a phone, my keys, cash in a money clip or small snap wallet, and a Military or P4.

    I'm thinking of carrying a slipjoint since I love old fashioned knives with bone or stag handles, but I just can't bring myself to do it.

    Usually a Manix LW or something that size and whatever knife is already in the MT that I have with me though I really NEVER remember the MT knife is even there and NEVER use it either.

    I seem to cut myself somehow when I try to carry smaller knives and a Delica is about as small as I can go and still be safe usually?

    I do always have like 7 or more lights with me though?

    I wear Carpenter Jeans and the Manix is in the right side tool pocket and a Skinth on my belt Batman style carries the MT and accessories for that and of course a few lights too.[​IMG]

    Ha!
    No but I do crawl around working under and over lit spaces a lot and will not be stuck in the dark if I can help it ever!

    I actually almost got stuck in a pitch black NFL indoor practice facility one time and thats all it takes to not let it happen again!
    70k ft single room!
    Pretty disorienting.

    And I am kind of just into lights too

    That seems like a very good reason to be so prepared.

    Unfortunately in Germany it's not common to carry a knife and there are a lot of restrictions. Opening a bigger blade like the Spyderco PM2, the Cold Steel Recon 1 (which by the way are not legal to carry in Germany) or the Maxace Balance (like shown in the picture) in urban situations can scare the people around me. I don't like that even if the blade is legal to carry in Germany.
    For these situations I carry a 2nd blade often like a Swiss Army Knife (no one is scared by a Victorinox) or a modern traditional slipjoint like the Bestman from Lionsteel or a Collector Knives.

    That’s quite a capable setup.
    Makes me curious about what you do? Even in my days as a field tech, I could never have justified that amount of blade. So if you don’t mind, I would really like to know more about your rationale

    That is something I could carry if I were to carry more than one blade. And I probably have on some occasions.

    Not that exact blacked out wharncliffe MB though. That’s a nice one for sure.
    Currently waiting for the k390 wharncliffe dragonfly to finally become available, and if a small wharncliffe prove to be as useful as I expect, I might get a MB as well.

    With a pretty mundane office job, I actually felt pretty over prepared carrying just one knife.
    As I came to discover, almost not a day went by without some cutting task conveniently resolved with a knife presented itself.
    With time I’ve refined my tools to suit my tasks and environment. The knife has gotten smaller and thinner, the blade stock and grinds has gotten thinner.
    Though primarily an office job, I regularly have to do real work, so while a laser sharp knife is great for clean cuts in soft materials, real work doesn’t always play out like that. To save my knife from the majority of those nasty cuts I’ve added a small utility blade to my EDC.
    I was very reluctant to accept the mini pocket Ute’s as anything more than a gimmick and another excuse to fill the pockets of EDC junkies with yet another item. Well, I’m eating my words. It’s such a small penalty to pay in pocket real-estate vs not having to worry about those border line not-a-knife-task cuts.

    Most day atm (while I eagerly awaiting a wharncliffe Dragonfly):

    I like small, blacked-out blades because I can take them out and cut discretely without anyone noticing.

    Where did you get that tiny utility blade? Awesome little thing that I want now.

    It’s a pretty penny for sure.
    Still it feels like one of my better investments in EDC tools (I guess I haven’t set that bar very high). As long as I don’t loose it (a real possibility with something that small), I’ll probably earn my investment back in saved knife blades.
