    Buck 375 during the week to work. I carry it because its small and I can carry it in dress pants pocket easily. On the weekends I usually carry a larger knife, but I almost never leave home without a knife in my pocket. I have had to donate several to airports because I always forget to leave them at home when we take off on trips.

    I carry a gerber not a spendy one either I have lost a few over the years. I do have a ritual before I leave for the airport I put my knife on the nightstand. When I get home from a trip I kiss the wife, pet the dogs, and go get my knife off the night stand.

    Would be interesting to do a poll to see how many of us carry a knife on a regular basis.

    I tried that once.

    But, your wife slapped the **** out of me and your dog bit me before I could take the knife.

    I carry a standard Swiss Army knife that my grandfather gave me when I turned 12. I have had that thing for almost 24 years. It will be a sad day if I ever lose it or break it. It is one of the few material possessions I own that about which I am sentimental.

    The other day when it was cold as hell and windy and I was filling up the windshield washing tank I was sure glad I had my knife so I could punch a few holes in the jug to expedite the transfer.

    I've got a knife with me every single day. On duty I carry a benchmade tactical triage and off duty it's either my benchmade mini griptillian or a spyderco lil native. I also have a full size leatherman multitool in my bag or car at all times

    I use a Guidesman from Menards. Cheap but a lifetime replacement directly from Menards which is nice.

    I carry a Buck Vantage and have for a few years now. Great size, holds an edge and fits in my pocket nicely. I have a couple Benchmade knives that are better quality with a nicer blade, however, their pocket clip sucks and it's a PITA to get them in and out. For that reason, they stay at home most days.

    I carry a benchmade griptilian on a day to day basis usually, waiting on this one to crap out so I can justify a 940 but it keeps going. I also have a benchmade contego if I'm feeling particularly tacticool on that day
