Without restrictions, whatever larger Spydie I’m carrying for the day. Today, it’s my new-to-me Ayoob.
I could never fault a Pacific Salt or Caribbean, SE or PE, as mine get ample pocket-time through the year.
But, with current restrictions, it would be the upcoming Lil’ Native slipjoint, and until it drops, my K390 Urban. About as jurisdictionally-compliant as can be.
In the fantasy-world you have proposed, I might even take the Lil’ Native, based on the LBK sense I get with my much loved mid-lock version.
However, because my wife and I try to one-bag it (no airport check-ins), taking a Spydie with us is just not possible.
Our air-travel strategy is to buy a well-made knife that is locally traditional, then ship it home as a memento.
Never got around to it on our last adventure (Tuscany and Venice), in spite of opportunities, and felt utterly naked every time I tapped my RFP.
