    I usually have 2, but that's because I keep a multi-tool, or SAK on my key rings and one of my folders clipped in a pocket.

    Thanks for all the responses. I had a Stockman and my Clipitool with me today on my travels and currently have my Dragonfly and Boker Toucan with me. Two is what I like in general, but I still like loading up my pockets once in a while, especially when I don't know what tasks might come my way.

    As many as I need. I'm not going to confine myself to a finite number knowing that needs vary.

    I usually carry 3 when I am at work and 2 when at home. At work and when out and about I have my Spyerco Ronin 2 fixed blade which I carry IWB at about 4 oclock. Then usually two folders. One for food, and one for dirty work.

    I carry a 3-4" folder of some type and a small SAK, like a Classic or Rambler. I also carry a small multitool (LM Juice S2) but the knife blade never gets used.

    Defensive fixed blade. Folder that gets rotated often, CRKT M16-12ZE, Leatherman Sidekick and a neck knife usually Minimalist wharncliffe.

    In the bag its usually a Mora and a full sized multitool along with my Cold Steel Recon Tanto.

    Stay Bladed.

    K.i.S.S ? I know what the acronym usually means. I can't think of which knife you are referring to though?

    L'chaim!

    Look at my posts and you'll see that I carry 3 (sometimes only 2 at home). I have a medium to large folder clipped to my front RH pocket, a traditional folder in a leather sheath in my front LH pocket and SAK (usually a Huntsman) on a suspension clip in my front LH pocket. All are rotated and rarely get carried more than twice in a month.

    I vary how many I carry and why. Some of my knives are fidget tools that happen to cut. At a minimum, I carry left and right handed, where the left one is a backup or rescue knife (often fully serrated). I also have a multi-tool of Swiss army knife, pepper spray, a small very bright flashlight, a tactical pen, a small neck knife, etc. I also carry back up keys on a lanyard. Unless I am out and about, I do not carry my keys or mobile phone. If I am carrying a concealed handgun (which means when I am not at work), I carry less knives and maybe only one, and the mobile phone is on my person.

    I feel naked without at least two.

    It's pretty rare I carry more than 2, but it happens on occassion.

    I carry a dedicated blade, usually either a kiridashi or medium fixed blade and a small swiss army knife.
