Has anyone else noticed their posts vanishing?

I generally carry about a dozen, plus a few multi-tools that also have blades.

Since the mid 90's, two - a medium stockman and a pocket clipped locking ~3 incher, all non stainless, always.
Before then, just a medium stockman.

I usually have 2 knives on me if I'm not at work (I voted for the "2" option in the poll): A Spyder Edge Manbug on my keychain for "convenience cutting" tasks and a small or mid-size folder—usually something in the 2.75" to 3" blade range like a Native 5, Delica 4, UKPK, Yojimbo 2, Introvert, Karahawk, Chaparral, etc.—for when a little extra reach and cutting length is needed. Depending on what I need to do on a particular day, however, sometimes I will replace the mid-size folder with a compact fixed blade like the Enuff or Ronin 2 or one of my small non-Spyderco fixed-blades.

When I need to go ultra-minimalist such as when trail running, I carry one knife clipped IWB, almost always a Dragonfly 2 of some sort, or occasionally a Li'l Native.

At work, I carry three knives: the aforementioned Manbug (my most carried knife, now that I think about it, since I always have my keys with me), a 3" work knife (a Native 5 LW, Delica 4, Salt 2, Alcyone, or Tasman Salt 2), and the knife on my Leatherman Wave or Skeletool. I carry a Leatherman mostly for the pliers, wirecutters and screwdriver—I only ever use the multi-tool knife if I'm, say, cutting something against concrete or steel and don't want to risk chipping my Spyderco :D

Up until two days ago, I was carrying eight knives, as I was comparing different small fixed blades for edc made by custom knife makers. I put three of them away, so I could focus on one at a time, comparing them to my production blades I carry. It is hard to compare more than 2 or 3 knives at the time.

I always have 2. Roadie on my keychain and a folder right front pocket. Other keychain (2nd car) has a Leatherman mini tool on it. Chores around the house it’s the folder and a Leatherman either an old style Wave or a Skeletool with the upgraded blade steel.

At work, generally one. Usually the HAP40 Wharncliffe Delica. Sometimes the K390 Urban or ZDP189 Dragonfly. But generally those three are the ones I choose from.

Around the house and yard, usually three. A small traditional slipjoint or SAK, and usually a smaller Spyderco and a larger one.

Depending on what I'm doing, one of the Spydies will be often be SE. And one of the Spydies will usually be tool steel and the other stainless.

If I'm out in the bush, then usually a larger size Spydie like the Police 4 or my Lefty Millie, a fixed blade and a small slipjoint/SAK.

It's a relatively new habit, but I've started packing a public loaner knife too. It's usually a Vic or an Opinel No 4 or 5.

Ummm, 5(Spyderco Military and Pacific, Emerson CQC-12, a Wilmont Knives K25, and a wee little 2 bladed fake ivory-handled knife that rides in my jeans watch pocket-- very sheeple friendly. I didn't count my Leatherman Crunch). I didn't pick the name "Blades"; it was given to me in 1994 by my Air Force buddies because back then I carried 2 knives(Endura and Delica). :)

I feel ashamed to admit that one is my normal routine. I'm not sure if I've ever carried two.

One person, without a backpack, just one. If I ever have two folders on me, one IWB, the other in one of the pockets.

There's something wrong here, for once I'm with the majority.

No, when I voted in the poll I posted in this thread that I usually carry about a dozen, and that was back on page one. When I came back to this thread a day or two later, I didn't find that post. It has happened a couple of other times as well.
