Usually 2 or 3. One in my right front pocket (tip up), one in my left front pocket (tip down), and if the shorts/pants I'm wearing have a watch pocket, then my SE H1 Ladybug hawkbill or Super Blue Manbug rides in there.

Latest arrivals: DLC M4 Shaman, Opus, Q Ball

Two here, as in my sigline. Smaller one clipless in bottom of LFP; larger one clipped inside edge of RFP.

You mean people only carry one knife at a time? That is the saddest thing I have ever heard. :D

As soon as the piggy bank fills back up, my plan is to move my Delica 4 combo edge from waistband to neck sheath, and get a FFG Delica for my right pocket. Don't worry though, that will still be in addition to my Buck 301, LM Wave, and a cheap SAK clone I keep as a loaner. ("Do you have any knives or anything in your pockets sir?" "Actually, officer, it might me easier if you just take my pants off.")

I believe I remember Mike Janich posting that his EDC was 2 Delicas and an Endura. Endura is probably swapped for a Yo2 now, I would imagine.
A sharp knife is a pleasure to carry. Five or six sharp knives are an even greater pleasure.

Two; one Dragonfly for lighter tasks around NKP and an Endura for heavier tasks.

The same Dragonfly has been on duty for coming on twenty years. The Endura only for about eight years and was adopted when I was looking for a defensive weapon while carrying thousands of dollars of camera equipment on federal lands where firearms were not permitted. Now I'm living on a farm and both tools have been put to work nearly every day of the week without fail.

I've tried a few times to get into the habit to carry both a PE and SE Spyderco, but it's not working for me. :o It just feels like overkill.

I typically have a Victorinox Pioneer LFP, and a 3-4 inch PE Spyderco RFP. This combo handles everything I need on a daily basis. I do carry a spare SAK and spare Spyderco (SE Military) in my bag, but I rarely need them, maybe once or twice a year.
Favourites: Military, Chief, PM2, Spydiechef, Sage, Pits, UKPK, Caly 3

SpydieWrench in my bag and usually one 2.5-3.5" PE folder. I sometimes add a SE Salt for dirty work.

Around the house - 1 or 2 midsize, or a midsize and Manbug

Out and about - Large (usually Endura) in RBP, midsize in RFP, ZDP Ladybug on keys, and Manbug (SB or ZDP) in watch pocket

Work - Salt 1 in RBP, various midsize (rotate) in RFP, Manbug in RFP, Ladybug in LFP, SAK in LBP, and an old style (far superior) Leatherman Wave on belt
- best wishes, Jazz.

I used to carry a Zulu and a cricket. Because i loved the way these knives are the complete opposite of each other. (recurve)

Now i try to limit it to 1. Or a small folder and a multitool. Just because of the space they take up in your pockets.

I approve this message. It is also my plan once the stupid mail comes through.

Although it is more of a I like the Dragonfly then a issue with people being put off at work. Where I work I play with my Millie all the time and no one even cares.
On my radar: 110V Military, Police 4 and some sweet Rex 45 Military action.

Newest Spydies: S90v Ti Military, Pacific Salt and a special Kiwi.

I normally carry my Karahawk when I leave home, for obvious reasons, but carry something else when I'm at home. I've been considering carrying the Karahawk and another one... (Stretch, Delica4, Native5, Domino, Manix2, the list goes on and on.) I know that one of the owners of a popular online knife shop carries two Enduras on his person... (omitting the name so people don't think I'm whoring).

I have a SE Ladybug and a small leatherman on my key chain and a CE blacked out delica with a full size leathermanin my work bag. That is four without even trying on a regular workd day. Along with that I may carry a clipless DFly or Chapparral.

Around the house it is minimum two. SE or CE and a PE, assorted.

I almost always have at least two Spydies on me at any given time. Today it is a SS Balance in my pocket and my Micarta Elmax in my bag.
