    Almost 4 years later still carrying the Spyderco on the Dangler in pocket and Leatherman Juice CS4 in left front pocket. Upgraded to the ZT 0301 in front cargo slit almost 3 years ago.

    Don't even know how many in my EDC bag, at least 3 fixed and 7 or 8 folders...

    Because I can and it is no big deal to do so 'Murica!

    I know what you mean, but I'd lay odds that in certain cities/states (NYC, Philly, Chicago, California all come to mind!) it would unfortunately become a big deal in certain situations...

    I sometimes find myself required to make a trip to NYC. I reduce my carry for such trips to a SAK... not that that is any guarantee, but I am placing a bet on it not being viewed as negatively as some that I prefer to carry...;)

    Sigh.

    L'chaim!

    ZT0566CF in pocket, Vic SpiritX multi on the belt. Then a BK11 and a BRKT Micro Canadian in the bag. BK11 is for wood processing if I need a small fire for cooking lunch, I work forestry and somedays a small fire is nice in the winter, and the BRKT handles most of the food processing if needed. Weekends around the house is typically a Mini Grip and a LM Charge TTi. But, have a Mora Eldris en route and will see how I like it over the weekend. May rotate out the BRKT for the Eldris for a short time.

    I carry both at work and just the Altitude on my weekends. The Bailout is my beater/work knife and the Altitude serves as a backup/last resort weapon. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG]I carry two almost all the time. I always carry my victorinox signature lite everyday as long as I can legally have it. And I rotate another knife usually something a bit larger. I love the signature lite because it’s perfect for my job and my daily needs pen, light, scissors, nail file/flat head and of course the knife. I try to not use that blade so it remains razor sharp for more of an emergency situation. The second knife that rotates really is the blade I use for daily cutting tasks. I work in a factory so it gets used quite a bit and enjoy switching it up for variety and I just love my knives.

    Little knife for small job and not scare people. Big knife for bigger job and really scare people. LOL!
