Mine is a Gerber Presto, 3 inch assisted opener. It isn't the best, but it seems to be well made, and holds an edge pretty well.

Since I can't carry my gun at work, I keep this one clipped in my LF pocket.

My knife is not very impressive.

Here is my basic daily carry. At work I can't carry the firearm but the knives are always there. The OTF knife is clipped inside my right back pocket and the belt knife obviously keeps my pants up. The belt has been great. Inexpensive but very solid and rugged. Keeps its edge very well. It also goes well with anything I normally wear just shy of gym shorts. :thumbsup:

That should be a CRKT M16 of some variation. Like mine but with a smooth balde.

Yep. I looked around a bit. Carson Design, named after the guy who designed them. Wow what a concept Cody. :disgusted: Cleaned up my blade a little, M16-02.

I would love to own an Cold Steel Tai Pan To tell the truth I am better trained with a knives and swords than with a gun. Like my handle didn’t give that away.

For general-purpose cutting I have a verity of smaller knives to fit that bill. Which one I carry depends on my mood and more likely what I can find.

I think that before I get flooded with messages stating that I shouldn't carry a knife to a gunfight I don't. I have an xd or a .327 that I carry as well. Of course some people could argue at less than ten feet (the distance most fights start) a knife in the hands of someone who know how to use it is just as dangerous if not more so as a gun. I am just saying don't discount the knife just because it is not a gun. Men have been fighting with edged weapons long before firearms.


I agree with you. Depending upon my clothes, I carry a combination of a gun and two folders or folder + fixed blade.

I have the San Mai Master Tanto. It is one of my most effective knives for cutting.

Those are some nice knifes! I'm not into the knifes as much as the guns but I do carry a spring assisted Gerber partially serrated *sp? That my wife gave me, does the trick so far.

I carry the Leatherman C303. It's been a nice knife, has a built in carabiner of sorts that doubles as a bottle opener.

Nice! Always good to have a bottle opener on hand!

  • XD9SC, either on my belt or in my Smart Carry holster
  • Cellphone, with '9' configured to speed dial 911 (back left pocket)
  • 1/2 ounce pepper spray (front left pocket, with my car keys)
  • Boker switchblade knife w/3.75" blade (front right pocket)
  • Wallet (back right pocket)

Sometimes I carry a Gerber multi-tool on my belt rather than the knife in my pocket. That's only when I expect to need it. The knife is for cutting stuff, but could be a weapon in a pinch. I like the switchblade because I can open it one-handed. It looks like this:

DG, I almost bought that exact same knife a while back. How do you like it? Does it hold its edge well?

It seems to, although I don't really use it much. Mostly I use my Gerber for cutting stuff; the switchblade is a defensive tool.

In practice I don't carry the switchblade as much any more. I've been really disappointed to find out how many restrictions there are on transporting switchblade knives around. I believe it's a federal crime for me to transport it out of Utah, for example.

A spring assist isn't considered a switch blade right?
