    Those carrying an OHO and a traditional, what are you using each for as part of your EDC?

    My Vic Classic is for dulling, using for thicker packaging like cardboard, thicker plastic etc, my OHOs' are mostly for food, light precise cutting, lighter duty packaging and heavy prying (kidding about the last one :p:)).

    Today it's a Delica, Recruit with bloodwood scales, and a Rambler. I also have a Leatherman Fuse in my work backpack and a Juice S2 in my car earthquake backpack.

    Most days I'm carrying 4 with 2 more in my bag...

    1. ZT 0562cf, right front pocket
    2. Small Sebenza 21 left rear pocket
    3. KaBar TDI horizontal at 12 on my belt
    4. Vic Spirit X on belt sheath at 8 on my belt

    Keep a Spyderco Manix 2 lightweight and a Chen's Duty 1 in my bag.

    Thinking about picking up a neck or boot knife; maybe both...

    I usually carry a Cadet, but I got a Rambler for Christmas, and that has seen way more pocket time recently. I carry it for the scissors, the file, and the cap lifter/Phillips, primarily (as well as knife that does not scare people, which I rarely need, thankfully). The Cadet sees the same use when I carry that.

    The OHO does all my cutting, which tends to be threads, boxes, packages, clamshell packaging, anything else. Also, the fact that I would fee naked without one.

    I have a Leatherman in my backpack, mostly for the pliars and driver, although the other parts see use sometimes, too. It has been useful enough at school to stay in the backpack, and my backpack is easier to get at when at home than the toolbox, so I grab it first for fixing my son's toys or anything else like that unless I need a dedicated tool.

    I also carry a fixed blade sometimes (usually a small one, unless I am hiking/camping), especially when I am going to be outdoors, or sometimes just because I want to. It will often replace entirely or supersede any OHO I have on me. I don't carry a fixed blade at school, though. I think I could and still comply with their policy, but the OHO is enough.

    i usually keep at least 3 at any given time.

    my bm grip stays in my front, right pocket
    my leatherman wingman stays in my front,left pocket
    and my victorinox fieldmaster stays in my edc bag

    also, i have a leatherman micra on a keychain (with various other keys and implements) on a keeper inside my bag. and since it has small blade on it, i guess that counts as 4.

    when i'm in my truck, there are 3 other knives (ontario blackbird sk-5, buck 110 hunter, and a cheap throwaway, with belt cutter and glass breaker, in the center console) in there so that would make 7 total when i'm driving.

    So I got one in today and it is a beautiful knife but it is too big for me to EDC. It's a shame too. I will do some research and maybe throw it up for trade here.

    Always have a Vic Classic and Soldier on me and I alternate between Spyderco and GEC as my third knife.
    So three would be the number for me.

    It's never too late to post it again ;)
    Do you have the one with the black blade? It would be interesting to see a user Griploc :)

    Idk if I've posted here recently, but I carry several...

    Normal/utility tasks: microtech utx-70, ultratech, or spyderco delica. I'm almost thinking a ruxford RUT might make a better overall tool because I'm sick of cleaning the autos, but they're so much cooler and easier to use thanks to the one-handed closing.

    Food, mostly: spyderco stretch. Just to save on cleaning the autos.

    Survival in a bag: JR Necker, though I'm thinking about replacing it with a 6-7" fixed blade to be a better wood splitter

    Incidental: Vic Rambler and a leatherman skeletool cx (bag). I carry both for the other tools and sometimes trade out the leatherman for a different one.

    The incidental blades are the ones that annoy me. I literally never use them. And in both cases, I'd rather have a different tool or a thinner thing.

    friction folders are traditional and can be OHO. here's mine with a framelock, prybar, and pen:
    [​IMG]

    friction folder at the bottom is for opening mail and stubborn snack packaging, removing loose threads from clothes, personal grooming. the big framelock does food prep, box-demolishing, and fidgeting/recreational use.

    I always carry a Vic Explorer and a folder on person, and a Leatherman and one small fixed blade in my bag.

    Just the Benchmade 943. The fact that my Surge has a knife is just a bonus. ;)
