I have tried that, but I get jabbed in the gut when I sit down. How do you get your folder to not jab you?

I'd be tempted to keep, say, the Micra around for deployment in situations where PHRASECENSOREDPOSTERSHOULDKNOWBETTER. might be present, like in an office setting. You don't have any problems taking out your Spyderco in any of your environments?

I carry two pocket knives daily. One is a Cold Steel Voyager with 5" "Nogales" blade (special run a few years back) & a SAK.

Well, I either wear jeans or khakis. I put the knife in my right pocket all the way to the right of the pocket. I don't have any problem with being jabbed in the stomach because it's more on my hip. I don't notice it any more than I notice my cell phone.

Craig,

I kind of "just don't care". The knife is large, yes but I am tall and it rides very well in your pocket. I dont take it out of my pocket unless I have to use it, and if I do, I put it back quickly. I dont carry it with me to areas that might not smile on it, like a club or popular bar or church, but being a Marine and an avid outdoorsman, it doesnt get any different looks and I dont draw attention to it.

Plus I just dont care if anyone has a problem with it. If they do, I just leave. No use in getting it taken away from me.

I hope this answers your question.

Garrett

The link to picture in the original post doesnīt work any more <img src="images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />. Since I canīt edit the original post, I post it again (just in case someone still wants to see it). The unit for the folding rule is centimeter.

I think your knife is very cool and neat to look at.

I'm replying here because of the PHRASECENSOREDPOSTERSHOULDKNOWBETTER. comment. I carry a Kershaw liner for that very reason. It has a good blade, but has a more harmless executive look. It is lightweight and rugged. My other pocket knife is a Bar Creek 2" lockback attached to my key chain. It's my boxcutter and don't care if I scratch it up knife. Regards, Keys

I have a Kershaw Silver Spur I & II that I carry when I've got a shirt and tie on.

I made the PHRASECENSOREDPOSTERSHOULDKNOWBETTER. comment because I was helping to break down a huge stiff cardboard box at the office. The other guy was using a pair of scissors, and badly. The right tool for the right job, I always say.

Anyway, I pulled out my Spyderco Dragonfly and made short work of that box.

Boy did the comments fly. The speed at which I broke down the box, contrary to hacking at it with dull scissors, initiated the comments. It was stuff you don't want to hear, such as, "Hey, you could kill someone with that," or "Can I borrow that for my meeting with the boss" (he was within earshot but didn't pick up on it).

Now the Dragonfly stays where it is, unless there's a real emergency.
