    It's again horses for courses and depends on you preference, venue, situation etc,etc...

    What smaller 'type' of pocket knife do you prefer or E.D.C. ?
    A,B, or C?

    Show us a picture/tell of your primitive sharp and pointy 'survival' tool in your pocket.

    Each are capable of doing what the others are doing, but .....?

    image.jpeg Not quite a legal EDC but I seem to be getting away with carrying a lock knife/multi tool.

    I carry several knives depending on what I'm doing but I always carry my leatherman freestyle. I will usually have either a tactical type knife or an Openel 8 in my front left pocket. I am working on asheath for a small fixed blade knife that I may add to my EDC. I am a "fixer" and have a lot of pocket tools that are part of my EDC.

    My EDC knife is A but I do prefer C. I just have not forced myself to spend the bucks for a good "C".

    IMG_20180120_211534.jpg IMG_20180331_130003.jpg My EDC knives are a Leatherman Core and a good stout generic folder I bought for $10 at Home Depot ~10 years ago. I also have a small Snap On folder in my Altoids tin that I always carry.

    Leatherman Wave is a favourite of mine, but for non-locking EDC the Victorinox Farmer (for those who are non UK folks we are technically not allowed to carry a locking blade in the UK unless we have a justifiable reason)

    I carry a Kershaw 1605; similar to C in your pictures. Very easy to open. Keeps a very sharp blade for a long time. Good size. Comfortable to carry. I have multitools in my EDC bag, but the Kershaw is in my pocket at all times.

    My three general purpose knives: new version Kabar, Kershaw multi-tool, Kershaw locking knife, and diamond sharpening-stick. So far, I haven't stabbed myself or anyone else

    Kabars are great, I own 3 myself. They are not "pocket knives" though lol. I definitely don't EDC one, though they are never far from me.

    My Buck 110 Hunter lives for about 18 years now, and I like it.
    cfe989f6847e2e206af40f6321693f6e.jpeg
    AS for EDC multitool I love all that made by Leatherman. My top picks are Wave and Signal (smaller alternative in case you need a hammer to nail down a 2D nail)
    cfe989f6847e2e206af40f6321693f6e.jpeg
    Signal's plyers made of 154CM steel that is the same allot that Buck knives made of (however, 110 hunter is made of 420HC which is known to be better and long lasting)

    Interestingly enough (despite my three favorites above) the knife I carry most, especially when Dawn and I get up to do the morning chores, is a Workpro folding box-cutter and a pair of linesman pliers, since I'm usually cutting hay-bale string or cutting and/or twisting fence wires. Tacticool? Absolutely not -- but the fit the bill better than anything else LOL!

    It all depends on where I am. On a regular day I'll just carry a folder. If I'm out hiking or doing something in the woods I'll either carry my Kabar or Esee 6 as my fixed blade, a Buck 110, a Leatherman and some other folding knife.

    Good morning EarlyMarksman,

    Good move - re carrying a fixed blade when away from the BOP.

    If hand injuries occur, it's somewhat difficult to open a multitool. Even the assisted blade models (eg SOG assisted blade) become useless.

    Don't know Alabama law but Virginia requires the non pocket knives to be exposed, ie not concealed. Exceptions exist. Just mentioning ......

    I am surprised that they allow pointy scissors. A lock blade is no more deadly than a nonlocking blade...it is just safer to use and less likely to fail you. Is even an Opinel with its twist lock illegal?

    I collect knives and don't carry the same knife for every day. I carry lighter knives in light pants when I'm not working or in the woods. Openels and small Kershaw knife or even my old Old Timer medium stockman. For work and the woods, I like a bigger more substantial knife with a partially serrated blade. Serrated blades just cut things like rope better but a razor-sharp plain edge is better for skinning or woodwork. When I go out at night I usually have either a large spring-assisted karambit or a big spring-assisted clip point that makes me think of my old Buck 110. I really like the Karambits for defense.

    I would say that most of the time big or small I carry a locking blade knife.

    I carry a three blade stockman, usually a old old-timer. I didn't realize there are other models available LOL J/K

    I also carry a Leatherman type multi tool with me always.

    I actually have those 3 blades Old Timers in three sizes. I love those older carbon steel Old Timer Knives and have a bunch of them.

    Yes, even an Opinel. One has to have a "reason" to carry. So, for example, out camping, no problem, if you're a farmer, no problem etc etc It is down to the police officer's discretion, but that does not mean you would end up in court as the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) decides whether a case is relevant and/or justified.

    This means that my SwissTool multitool is only legal if I am working etc, not as EDC.

    Alabama is very laxed on gun and knife laws, and the only blade I don't conceal is my fixed blade. And what is the BOP acronym? Never heard that one before.
