I'm trying, once again, to reduce the number of pocketknives I carry every day.

Right now, I carry four. A lightweight Spyderco Dragonfly in my right rear jeans pocket, a Victorinox Executive in my left front jeans pocket right next to a Sam McDowell custom-made two-blade folder (a gift with high sentimental value), and a Vic CyberTool 41 on my belt.

What do you fine folks think? Is four too many?

Spyderco Endura clipped to my front right pocket. SAK fisherman in my front left pocket. Leatherman wave on my belt. I don't usually want for a blade or 5!

you should carry as many blades as YOU feel comfortable with.

i only carry a Wenger exsecutive and a Vic Swisscard most of the time, so i won't get in to trouble at school or other public places. Wenn i just go somewhere, where i can carry blades i will add mine Swisstool X or/and a opinel #7. I don't need a one-hand openable knife for most jobs, so i don't carry one.

Benchmade Mel Pardue folder (model 721 i think) in the front right pocket, Leatherman Micra on my keys (soon to be replaced with a Squirt), and a Leatherman Wave on my belt

Have you ever lost a knife that you carry in your back pocket?
I have heard that some make catch and fall off.

A Victorinox "Rambler" in my pocket and a Victorinox "Farmer" in my little daypack, that is all for daily carry.

I know I've said his before, but you asked...

The usual suspects I carry most everywhere:

1. Victorinox Midnite MiniChamp II
2. Victorinox Money Clip
3. Leatherman Wave
4. Gerber Harsey Air Ranger II (plain edge)
5. Benchmade 100 River & Rescue (plain edge)

These are also supplemented by the rest of my collection when circumstances demand, like my SOG Access Card...and there's a whole bunch more...
