    Gerber 1629 LMF II Survival Knife. I don't travel without this. Not even in the cage. If there's even a chance I might be hiking somewhere this is the first thing that goes into my pack.

    I bought this same little knife back in 1986, and I still have it. It's an awesome little pocket knife.

    Very nice knife, holds an edge very well. If I lost this one, I would immediately order another just like it.

    Mine is the Swiss Army Tinker. It's light, compact (doesn't have the zillion blade options) and it has a phillips screwdriver bit that adjusts for #1 or #2 sizes.

    Just picked up a Kershaw Leek with a CPM S30V blade and G10 handle, my preferred combination for practicality:

    Not legal for EDC in the UK [must have good reason or be on private property] but the assisted opening mechanism is very trick.

    Another spyderco carrier here.

    I have had a calypso or delica clipped in my pocket for years. It has become so natural to use that it scares some people when I have it out and open in the blink of an eye.:evil
