    I rotate my bigger SAKs/Swisstools for EDC, but my Vic. Rambler is always with me.

    Spyderco Centofante 3. I tried other knives but keep coming back to this one. Also have a Vic compact on keychain that's with my all the time. At home thou it's a Gerber EAB so I can cut all sorts of crap in the yard and not worry about it.

    Front right pocket is always either a Benchmade Benchmite or a Boker Wharcom.

    Left rear pocket rotates a bit more but the two that find the most carry time are my Bradley Alias II and my G10 with S30v blade steel Kershaw leek although a Auto Benchmade does sneak in from time to time.

    I like to carry a ~3” folder clipped to the inside of the waist-band of my pants (near my right kidney). I dislike pocket carry because the knife gets in the way of my retrieving coins or keys. The best knife I've found for carry in that position is the Spyderco native, because of its flat profile and lack of a thumb stud, and that is what is with me almost all of the time. I suppose a Caly 3 would be equally comfortable but a better cutter on account of it's flatter blade, but the native hasn't given me any cause to replace it yet.

    I've replaced my Emerson CQC7 with a Benchmade Snody Activator (D2), rarely seen but always there.

    A black Boker Hyper is short, flat and also very good for waistband carry. Black deep pocket clip
    also good with dark slacks. But the blade is combo edge. Wish they made a black one with a
    straight edge.

    I do like my Spydercos also. Maybe I'll get a Caly 3 one of these days. Deep pocket clip, though
    I like the oldstyle solid and squarish Spyderco clips instead. On the other hand, haven't heard
    any complaints about the Caly wire clip.

    I always carry at least three knives. I rotate through my locking folders and full-sized SAK's, but my SAK Rambler is always on my keychain.

    Of the folders, I tend to carry the BM Minigrip more often than any of the others. The full-sized SAK's vary a lot, but I often wind up with a Cadet, Alox Bantam, or Explorer. I carried a Small Tinker as my only EDC knife for many, many years.

    Main EDC, it rotates between Spyderco Native, CRKT M21-12, Cold Steel Voyager medium clip point. Other blades that are carried every day but not used as a primary are:
    Cold Steel AK-47 :), Ontario RAT Model 1 Folder, or Benchmade Griptilian.

    It is turning out to be this Case XX 6332 stockman (circa 1940-1964) that gets being picked to go in the pocket every day.

    I carry or have carried daily:

    SAK Minichamp
    SAK alox Cadet
    SAK Rally
    CRKT M16-01 carbon fiber
    Spyderco Native
    Kershaw Chive
    Kershaw Scallion TiNi
    Kershaw Scallion zytel
    Case Executive

    Over my lifetime the Case Executive has probably seen the most carry but I haven't carried it daily in some years in favor of some other knives.

    Recently, the Minichamp has moved to my key ring but gets carried every day as a result so arguably it is the most carried over the past year or so (when it was both pocket carried and now ring carried)

    As far as pocket knives go - my SAK alox Cadet has gotten the most use recently (I've only had it for a month or so but it's been in my pocket almost exclusively over that time). It is so slim and easy to pocket, has a useful size blade (my only issue with the MiniChamp really), and the added benefit of the other tools which come in handy and with the alox knives there is almost zero cost in size... That is my primary work EDC knife right now and the Scallion zytel sees the most use during the weekends.

    For me I have to have my Victorinox Soldier in the front pocket and my old style frn clip Spyderco Delica in the rear pocket. I don't leave home with out them! I would feel naked for some reason.

    When in town I go back and forth between the Tool Logic SL2 and a CRKT M16. Just depends on where I'm going. Out of town same SL2 but add a Chris Reeve Shadow III.
