    I usually have a minimum of 3 blades on me when I leave the house and sometimes four.
    1. Folding pocket knife (Beretta usually).
    2. Small Spyderco clone on keychain.
    3. Leatherman Juice 2 (for the other tools).
    4. Often a medium to small size neck knife (BK11, Kabar Piggyback, Benchmark Backpacker, CRKT Folts Minimalist)

    Additionally I have an off brand multitool and a large folding knife in my vehicle in case I forget one ;>). last time I few somewhere with only carryon luggage, first thing I did was buy a cheap pocket knife. Without a blade I feel totally unprepared.

    On my person: one.

    It is never necessary to lend one out.
    Also, it is never true that the knife with you will break or get lost.
    The one I have on me is an appropriate size to cut a sandwich, yet not so large as to feel cumbersome.

    I almost always have a Vic Classic on my keychain, a Vic farmer or Cadet in my back pocket, and a Kershaw Skyline in my front right pocket. Also, a LM Wave or SideClip if I am in the mood to carry one.

    Vic Classic SD on the keychain, Sage 2, BM530, and a Sebenza on my person. There are also spares in the bag and car.

    I've just recently begun to thin my collection out (selling off older knives, cheap knives, multiple flashlights and various of EDC paraphernalia that I don't carry any more) and buy quality knives only. I.E.: Para 2s, CRKs, Striders, ZTs and Case.

    The unfortunate byproduct of this means I only have a few knives in my collection. But I want quality, not quantity.

    And they're all big ones too (0550, SMF) so I can really only carry out comfortably. That's find by me though, I never seem to need more than one.

    I find myself carrying two knifes at one time. I carry my Hinderer XM-18 in my right front pocket clipped and my Strider SnG CC in a slip sheath in my left pocket, I also carry my ZT 550 in my EDC bag. I'm not sure why I do it but I figure it can never hurt to have more than one. But only if you can carry them without the knifes being in your way.

    I wish I had an indestructable, magical knife that would find me if I misplaced it.

    I usually carry two knives, a large and a small. The small is for use in public.

    I certainly wish this were true. I'd have several more knives in my accumulation if it were. And I'd have spent a lot less time looking for replacements for the favorites that have gone astray.

    Yes, I carry multiple knives. If I told you how many, you'd think I was lying or ask why anyone would carry that many.

    99% of the time I only carry one. There is the very rare occassion that I will throw a second one into my jacket pocket.

    Unless I am in the country side (which is far to infrequent for my taste these days), then I will always add a fixed blade to the belt.

    I normally carry a "utility" knife and one for er, ah, social interaction.

    Under normal circumstances, I will carry just one of each. Utility knife in LFP and social knife in RFP.

    In days past, in my previous occupation, I frequently carried three knives for interpersonal crisis management and one small SAK.

    One Spydie Ladybug HB
    One Skeletool CX
    One folding razor

    I'd like to add a Shivworks Lil Loco to the mix but they seem to be impossible to find. Actually, anything with the Shivworks name would make me extremely happy.

    I could not get a Li'l Loco, so I got a Ka-Bar TDI LDK (Last Ditch Knife). I carried it in the high line, the way Southnarc advocated the use of the Li'l Loco.

    2 - a CRKT M16-EZR (I think) on my belt and a ZT 350 (I think) either in a pants' pocket or in a jacket.

    Back in the day, it would be 3 if you counted the multi-tool on my belt.

    On person? Three. Always an Endura, something smaller to keep it company (it varies, anything from a SAK to a Delica) and the blade on the LM Squirt. If a bag is involved, there are more.

    3--5 on person. A Skyline or Delica in my front pocket. A larger folder Endura or Tremor in my back pocket. A Kabar TDI LDK on my belt left side. Also a Vic classic on my keychain. Either a ESEE 3 mil or Swamprat Hairy Carry on my right side of belt. Also have a Wave, along with either an ESEE 6 or Swamprat RMD in my bag.

    One knife and a multitool. Always been more than enough.
