I personally carry a black Kershaw Brawler SpeedSafe knife and also a Victorinox Swiss Cadet Knife attached to my keys for anything smaller. What knives do you guys like or carry? Thoughts/reviews on the knives I carry?

I currently carry a CRKT Eros SS.  I used to carry a Gerber 06 FAST.  I had to stop taking the Gerber with me because it was so heavy and annoying.  The CRKT is really light and I barely notice I have it on me most of the time.

Spyderco Sage 2. I used to daily the Kershaw Cryo but it was too stiff for my liking.

Work = Spyderco stretch
Out and about (not work) = ZT 561
Dress and special occasion= Reeves Sebenza

The ZT is my most of the time knife.

I used to carry a spyderco endura waved, which was a great workhorse.

 

I now carry a benchmade 941-TI with a custom wave job which is about the perfect knife.

 

A benchmade 943 is just as good though, just not titanium handles

I have over 50 folders in my rotataion. Come to think of it, I spend too much money on blades!  But I always seem to alway carry my BM Mini Griptilian or my DPX HEAT.  Also to accompany the folder I carry a SAK Huntsman.

Victorinox Alox Cadet for most situations, but I'll slip a Spyderco Delica 4 (ZDP) in my pocket if I think I'm going to need a workhorse.

My favorite knife to carry is a traditional puukko that was handmade as a gift for me by a finnish friend's grandfather. It's a true masterpiece.

However, I don't believe in carrying a "real" knife on a (urban) daily basis, never felt the need for it. So, I just carry a SAK: Wenger 18 Evogrip.

Currently a Spyderco Ambitious. Sometimes in certain situations I will switch to a Victorinix Spartan. For dressy occasions I will choose either a SOG Twitch II with wooden scales, or a Wenger EvoWood 14 with the beautiful Walnut scales.

I recently got a Piranha P1 pocket model automatic in burnt orange marble, and I absolutely love it. Some of my other favorites are the Ontario Rat-1, which is an excellent hard use, high value blade. I also sometimes carry the Spyderco tenacious, but it is not one of my favorites. I think the tenacious' broad blade and wide design in general takes up way too much space in my pocket. Occasionally I will carry the Ka-Bar tdi law enforcement knife inside the waistband in the appendix position on my left side. This is more of an emergency self defense blade for me than a utility blade. I am hoping to get a benchmade 940 sometime in the next couple months

Cadet plus (saw blade) and Benchmade Mini Griptilian (mod.sheepsfoot in S30V) or small Sebenza Insingo for an average work day. I like the sheepsfoot blade style for general use.

Due to the strict laws in the UK (non locking sub 3 inch unless justified by your profession) I carry a small AG Russell slippie on my key ring and a custom PITS folder in my pocket (if you're interested Spyderco has just done a production version).

I switch through 3 blades.  CRKT Triumph N.E.C.K. for EDC work knife, CRKT M-21 04 for strutting around town, and my SOG Twitch2 rosewood as my gentleman's knife. I highly recommend the N.E.C.K. knife for a work knife great small fixed blade and looks like a box cutter, people can't tell the difference in a leather work holster.

I carry two blades - one is the Victorinox Case 2 Officer's pocket knife for smaller tasks (it also has tweezers, a tooth pick and a watch case opener) and a San RenMu T21 Multi-function folder for emergency situations (it has a seatbelt cutter, bottle/can opener, and a glass breaker.) Carrying two knives give me options to work with.

I carry a Wenger Evo 10 in black with reg logo.

 

Can't carry anything more in the UK as you will be seriously "told off" if the police catch you with it in your pocket, you need a reason to carry the army knife....
