I usually have at least two on me....sometimes three...occasionally only one. It all depends I guess. ;)

At work just a traditional. Since January it has been a GEC Stockman. Outside of the office, usually a Spyderco and a traditional. Spydiechef mostly, as of late. If I'm going out downtown at night, I'll have a traditional and something maybe a bit more tactical, but it depends on what I'm wearing and where I'm going. Saturdays are usually for the big knives and Sundays are for the fancy traditional or modern traditional.
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.

Usually two. Today it was a Shaman and a Caplifter Clipitool. Also threw and LT Wright Large Pouter on my hip after work for yard work.

1-2. Police 4 and usually a Leatherman Wave + as well.

Sometimes I leave the Wave in my backpack and just carry the Police. Sometimes I carry a fixed blade instead of the Police....but P4 + Wave is my most common setup.

There were times when I tried carrying two Spydercos at once, but the wave offers me a lot more utility than two single blade knives.

Typically, I keep only one knife on my person at a given time.. but I'm never too far away from more if I need them. I have multiple "car knives," a "pack knife" in my backpack for hiking, and a Leatherman Wave in my first aid kit, which I try to keep nearby enough at all times to be able to use if I had to. I also keep a knife in pretty much every room of my apartment and my desk at work, so if I'm ever without one for some reason, I have one readily available. Some people (hah, my entire family) have called me crazy for having so many knives, but I feel like I fit right in in this little corner of the internet..

Usually one, sometimes two. On rare occasions, three, just to see how it would feel to carry three of them. I have found its good to pair a Spyderco Byrd with either a Pacific or Atlantic Salt, or, an Endura. I have also paired a Spyderco knife such as my Pacific Salt, with a Victorinox folder, or, an Opinel.

The upcoming Endela gives you the best of the Delica and Endura combined into one cutting tool.

Type of activity is the determining factor. The environment will factor greatly too.

Urban and suburban: 1
Country: 1
Woodland Wilderness: 2-3
Alpine Wilderness: 1
Coastal Wilderness: 2

Here is a related question: When carrying multiple knives, specifically folders, do you find it alright to keep both or more in the same pocket, or, do you prefer to have a belt pouch for one and pocket for another, or, have them in different pockets? One reason I ask is because, unless clipped to the pocket, I could see over time the handle scales and other parts rubbing against each other and possibly causing slight damage to scales and things.

Usually two, a “small” pocket knife (no clip) and another “larger” clip knife. Examples:
Great Eastern Cutlery Pembroke and Ikuchi
Lil’ Lum and Lum Chinese folder

On my person, 2 if you count my multitool, and I think 4 if you count my sling bag that goes everywhere with me.

Roadie on the keychain. Dragonfly in the watch pocket. Smock in the right front. Or a PM2, Spydiechef, Manix2 or similar right front pocket. If a Military it’s right rear pocket instead. Never 2 folders in the same pocket. If I’m carrying a Leatherman I only carry 1 knife.

Two.
Always a stockman in my pocket, and something else clipped to it.

For me, usually two, plus a Leatherman.

Lately, it's been either my Police 4 or Advocate, plus a mid-sized SAK.

I've recently forced myself to carry more than one blade. I've always felt like it was too redundant to have more than one on my person, but now I have different knives for different situations.
