I am a bright color worker (computer programmer). I carry a Leatherman Charge Ti clipped in my right pocket. The clip is smallish and hard to notice.
Maybe thats what I should do. I could trade my Leatherman Wave in for a Charge Ti since the Charge Ti has the pocket clip. Today I left the RSK at home and am experiementing with the Wave in my back pocket....ouch... quite uncomfortable. I have a coworker that EDCs a can of Skoal (or maybe it's Copenhagen) in his back pocket and I keep telling myself "if he can get used to that thing in his back pocket then surely I can get used to the Wave in mine." However its so far not so good but I'll give it another 48 hours and see if I start getting used to it. If not then maybe I'll put the Wave on Ebay and try a Charge Ti with the pocket clip. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Dave,

OK, this is my third attempt at trying to explain this. You should be able to put the pin through the pocket while wearing the pants, just don't stick yourself. The safety pin goes horizontally in the right front pocket, where the colored pants material meets the white pocket material, and near the area where the pocket meets the side seam. Think of where the coin pocket on a pair of Levi's is located, only farther down, so that the knife doesn't show. The clip on the knife slides through the exposed part of the safety pin, and the knife rides against the right side of the pocket near the side seam. Some people have sewn a "tunnel" in the pocket to fit the knife.

Im also in software engineering. I carry my decent sized folder and a multitool (Gerber Multiplier or Leatherman Wave) on my belt. The pouches are clearly visible. Im expected to be creative, careful and think beyond immediate problems. Having items which show that I do this even off duty is not really out of line.
This attitude seems to be slightly contagious. One of my coworkers found the courage to carry his Leatherman on the belt too.

AAMOF that joke was more against myself and my first understanding of it :
here, in France and in my working environment, PC stands only for Personal Computer.
When reading your post, I thought "it doesn't make any sense" and then had to force myself to think about an other meaning for "PC"...
I get often sidetracked (?) when having to deal with the acronyms used in various posts. Most of the time a search on the specialized acronims web site gives me the answer... not always..

anyway, I like what you call "double entendre" (?).. when I understand them .. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I'll never forget the time some friends and I were in a heated discussion about CRT's. Those of us who were engineers were referring to "Cathode Ray Tubes" (one of several technologies for TV or PC monitor displays). We couldn't figure out how our friend, who was in the laundry business, could be so into the conversation. Turns out HE was talking about "Cabinet Roller Towels" ... those cloth towels on a continuous roll you find in restrooms (at least over here in the US!) It's amazing how well the conversation went despite the disconnect. We were talking about "viewing angles" and there he was, "Yep, yep - 'ya gotta be right in front of 'em for things to work right!"

Ah ha! I just reread Dougs LM wave/Charge review an realized that the pocket clip will work with my Wave also although it is not included with the Wave when purchased. So now I just need to find a vendor to sell me a pocket clip. Granted, if I did permanantly replace my large folder with a multitool for EDC I would probably switch to the Charge for its 154cm main blade and slightly reduced weight. However, seeing as how I have never been a big fan of multitool EDC in the past (though I do feel a change coming on) I think I would be best served to see how I like EDCing the Wave for a while before buying a Charge Ti. Now I'm off to surf the net for someone selling Leatherman pocket clips.

I'm really amazed at how many people work in places where something so innocuous as have a small handtool is considered bad form or cause for gossip. I guess I'm spoiled by being an engineer and working with other engineers who seem to have a utilitarian view towards tools.

Visible about my beltline is a cellphone, pager, pouch w/ MicroShield & 1 pair of Nitrile gloves, and a Leatherman Charge Ti. No troubles at all. Plus there's other stuff in my pockets.

That there are people who would be sincerely troubled or suspicious of such gear is a sad thing indeed.

Brian, I believe you can buy the clip for $5 directly from Leatherman.

Dave,

I'm sorry for the confusion - I meant to say that I had to revise my post three times until it sounded coherent. There were no previous references. I didn't mean to sound like a schmuck! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
