    There's an old Eastern Adage... "A knifeless man is a lifeless man".

    With that said... since I was a young kid in the country, I've always carried a knife. Pocket folder, fixed blade, depending on what I needed, around town, hiking, fishing, backpacking, defense, etc.

    Now days... it's the holy trail of knife carrying. So many choices. I've had many over the many years but now here's what I have... and use. I've sold off a lot and gave a few away. Btw, 3.5 inch maximum in Colorado and the lighter the better.

    Spyderco Paramilitary 2 S30V steel
    Spyderco Carbon Fiber Manix 2 S90V steel
    Spyderco Sage Titanium S30V steel
    Benchmade 710 Coated M2H2 High Speed Tool Steel
    Ontario Rat Fixed Blade 1095 Carbon Steel with sheaf
    Leatherman Wave
    Leatherman Titanium Charge

    That's it... I'm done buying and selling, these are my favorite and classic keepers that are carried and used regularly.

    ...I just used the old clunky heavy Leatherman multitool that I store in my car to scrape off the metalized car registration sticker off of my license plate and put the new one on... perfect use for it

    I have always traveled with a multi-tool or a jack knife my whole life. I always have a use for my Leatherman multi-tool. I have one in every car that I own and in my TB S19 which is my EDC. Its a real bummer that I can't fly with my small multi-tool because I could use it almost everyday (bottle opener, pen knife, tweezers, awl, etc) while traveling.

Not to skin a deer, but for cutting various things .. finally a knife is my last source of self defense if need be.

    Folding knives these days are very light and very versatile.
    Plus, I work on a river boat, and a good knife is nearly mandatory.

    In the U.S. we are allowed to carry these tools, so they are very common to see. Knife discussion is huge on every social media site related to EDC, self defense, hunting, etc.

    I think you'll find that a 4" blade isn't legal in most (all?) states to carry concealed. Laws vary on whether or not a pocket clip means a knife is "no concealed"

    Be careful out there. Many states prohibit the concealment of anything "scary". Small "Swiss Army" type knives that have more tools than blades usually won't raise any issues except at Federal buildings, schools and airports.
    When in trouble, obfuscate.

    Yes.. definitely know the laws.. they vary quite a bit. Where I'm at it's fine.
