The knife you carry... (pics)

...the one you load into your pocket day after day. What is it?

On any given day it is one of these three:



Usually it is the HEST/F LE, followed by the Kershaw and then the Spyderco.

I haven't been without one of these since my 8th birthday:



I do have to replace it every few years, though. Arc-notched blades, twisted off screwdrivers, etc.

Stolentino, what the hell kind of belt do you wear? . I tried a Leatherman Wave, but without a Utility Belt it was just too big...

some pocket knives are just too hard on the pocket , and hanging something heavy on my belt isn`t an option for me , pain in the ass .
the older I get the smaller my choice of carry knives and guns gets ...
like most ..I`ve had a pocket knife in my pocket everyday since I was around 8 years old ...I`ve had to leave a few in the trash these days to enter court houses and airport checkins ...so light cheap and smooth is my norm these days .

Pocket (clipped):
CRKT Lake 111 - Except in a half-serrated.

Straight forward. Only issue is I prefer a liner lock. But this knife is solid and I didn't spend a fortune on it, so it gets used with no regrets. I sharpen it every month or two.

On the belt:
Victorinox SwissTool
http://www.swissarmy.com/us/product/...wissTool/53905

Solid. Tool access without opening it. Excellent locking system. The first one I had lasted ~8 years. I broke part of the spring system for the pliers. Sent it back. Replaced, not questions asked.

How about some camping in Pennsylvania?

How am I supposed to think out of the box; if they don't let me out of the box?
