Kershaw is my go to brand. Perfect balance between quality and price. My edc is a orange kershaw zing. It's great for an edc because of the color it's a friendly looking, or non threatening knife. Also have a crkt Multitool i carry if i need it, I.e. work. Not as many features as a leatherman but the tools it does have work great!

I tend to believe him.

Don't you be telling the boys they don't need a knife, now.

I guess going to college in Wyoming is a little different. Keeping evil "babbykillers", be it sharp pointies or loud bangies, away from the arts/sci and education building was all you needed to worry about. I don't know that I ever saw anyone in the Ag building without a knife. The gun range was in the gym basement right behind the union building.

My everyday knife is a Benchmade Mini Griptilian with the non-serrated blade. Really nice little knife.

I usually carry a full size Benchmade Barrage when I'm on the road or camping along with my Glock 30.

My wife thinks it's funny but I use it way more than she'd guess and she never complains when she needs it.

The fact that there even is a gun range at the college tells the whole story! That would be nice to have here.

99% of the time I carry a Swiss army Voyager
And 70% of the time I also carry a Kershaw leek
I have had a knife in my pocket since before I had a wallet
I have a daily use for one , I know when I'm without a knife before I know my keys are missing

I'm old school. I have a Buck 110. Maybe a bit big for the pocket but I like my jeans Biker style. Baggy in the ass and crotch half way to the knees.

Spyderco- Military with G10 handles, stainless serrated blade. Had a SOG assisted 3.5" tanto but it vanished. I prefer the Spyderco anyway.

I suppose it is too much to hope for that Yanks can tell the difference between knives and guns.
