After many years of telling myself that my multi-tool knife was sufficient for my EDC (a CKRT Lil'Guppie) I finally purchased a modest dedicated pocket knife (3 inch blade & 3.25 inch handle, give or take).  When I wear jeans, I have no problem carrying it in the coin pocket.  However, I'm an attorney and during the work week, I either wear suits or dress pants.  My question is for the folks who also have to dress professionally during the week - where do you carry your EDC Knife when you don't have a coin pocket to use?

When I was in Boston I carried it in either my back pocket (clipped), or in the breast pocket of my winter jacket. In NYC I will be keeping it exclusively in my briefcase.

I use a belt sheath most of the time but when wearing a suit it's usually a small traditional which slips straight into my pocket.

Same thing form me. Even when I'm wearing chinos I don't like to clip knives on my pockets, I just think it looks (an feels) out of place.

Like Ben I pick a small one, usually a Vic, and toss it inside my pocket.

My pocket knife (Spyderco Urban sans clip) is always in the front right trouser pocket. Slim and light it disappears leaving no noticable footprint.

I carry a Boker Gnome fixed blade in a small sheath in my suit pants and it disappears.  Doesn't disturb the lie of my suit at all and works well for any general chores.  I carry a Clinch Pick fixed blade on my off-side, horizontally on my belt, for "social work".  Also works well with my suits.

Spyderco Squeak and it goes in my trouser pocket along with an EDC hank.

If I'm dressing nice I usually grab a knife without a clip, like my Sodbuster or Victorinox. Usually the Victorinox because of its size.

I work as a meat-cutter (43 years of pure hell, now semi-retired) and I usually carry three knives. One, a SAK Recruit on my keys, a mini-trapper in my LFP with my change and wallet, and then a modern folder of some sort in my RFP along with my phone. Any more junk and my pants will fall down (I already have a belt and suspenders).
