Depends. Around the house in my sweats or pajamas, zero, because there's almost always at least one within reach. Right now, I'm counting 7 with arms length. When I'm going outside, usually 3 or 4. Jester on my key ring, Kiwi in my coin pocket, Stretch in my back pocket, and a MT Ultratech in front pocket.

Two, usually a larger knife and a smaller knife. Para2 in RFP and a delica IWB at 3 o'clock when wearing jeans. That is my most common combo but I mix it up when I am wearing slacks or sweatpants.

I carry a leatherman wave too.

LBHB SE H1 on the keys always, and a larger PE back pocket-usually a C3.5 or SB E4. For me, having the small SE and large PE is the only way to roll. I generally throw the LBHB at tough crap like industrial plastic shrink wrap and save my PE for more precise cutting and food

I was carrying 3 for the last few weeks, but now I'm down to one. Because the other two ripped big holes in all my extra pants pockets. So, until I get some new pants, I'm down to one.

Usually two of some sort. Pocketknife of some sort backed up by either a Leatherman Squirt PS4 or, if going to the woods, a Victorinox Farmer/Lumberjack.

2 a key chain knife (Leatherman micra) though I barely count that as I don't use the knife in it. And I have a larger folder in my front right pocket ( usually a dalibor Sirius, or strider SnG, spyderco Tuff, and will have a 0777 in it soon)

Around the house, just one Spydie clipped right front pocket. When I leave I add a Leatherman Juice S2.
Exercising outside in loose clothing, Endura clipped IWB.

3 - one tip up in the right front pocket, one tip down in the left front pocket, and a ladybug in my right change/watch pocket. When my pants don't have the change/watch pocket, I simply only carry the other two.

How many blades? 38 at the moment. Why?

Two on my person (Ladybug SE and Dragonfly Salt PE). On weekends, however, I generally carry three knives. I also have a SAK on my keychain, CardSharp in my wallet, and a Leatherman Micra in my coat pocket.
