I really like the Kershaw shuffle with tanto blade, or another thin Kershaw I dont know the model of.
Outdoor activities, I usually carry a fixed blade. Either morakniv or condor.
Almost always have a knife of some kind on me

Leatherman micra on my key ring has proven really handy over the years. Just got to remember to remove it before flying.

I also have a number 9 and a 12 but the 7 is my favorite daily carry.

These days a tactical with a half-serrated blade and a pocket clip. I have a few. I really prefer the one-hand open close. A good serrated will cut small branches out in the yard.

As @bobio said, carrying a knife is to defend myself from a dangerous box or other packaging.

I had a black Case "dress knife" for years. My mother bought it for me for my birthday when I was a teen. It went to every graduation, every wedding, and every funeral. I lost it somewhere in the last move. I miss that knife as much as any possession I have ever had.

Here’s my roughly 30 year old Wenoka
View attachment 984918
It’s on its second sheath. I wear it when I’m in a wetsuit but the SOG is clipped into my BC pocket
I miss Wenoka, my absolute favorite fins of all time were Wenoka Reflex. I also had a pair of Wenoka dive boots and the combo just felt like an extension of my legs. Those fins gave me quite a bit of power. Came especially handy diving in the Cooper river looking for sharks teeth in Charleston, SC, current can sweep you out to sea. A good knife anchored into the riverbed helped too :)

I love Sodbusters. I have a bunch of Cases and the other major knockoffs but as small as they are, I get bugged by their presence in my pocket. The only EDC I can stand is the WorkPro folding utility knife. Nice and flat, under three inches closed and uses standard utility blades. View attachment 984826
I never thought of carrying a utility blade but I can see the beauty in it. Always a sharp blade.

View attachment 984884 I have carried a pocketknife as long as I can remember.
Like many of y’all I own dozens of various knives for various purposes.
I was never a Boy Scout, but for the last 5-6 years I’ve carried this Boy Scout pocketknife. I found it at a goodwill for $3.00.
It’s a 70’s vintage and I suspect it was manufactured by Schrade.
Dang good little knife.
If you bought a used Boy Scout Knife in good shape for $3 you got a great deal. Somewhere at my Mom’s house there is one of these in a drawer. My Boy Scout compass from about 1968 is in the console of my truck.

Yup the minimalist Victorinox SD:

Always have one or I'm naked. Not really a weapon, unless you were planning on giving someone a terroristic manicure! Not sure which is more handy, the scissors or the tweezers.

Only since age 7. My most recent carry is a Benchmade.

But—HNKD…happy new knife day! Yesterday I acquired two new (first production run) knives from a friend of mine here in town. I’ll put one in rotation and the other in my stockpile. This is a Justin Case Tactical FAFO-1 folder.

They come with blue, black or OD green grips, and do have a clip on the opposite side. I really like their fixed blades as well and have several. Nice stuff.
Do they come with a Band-Aid?

More dive knives. Blunt tip on the BC inflator hose for cutting away entanglements, and "Sea Hunt" ankle knife for dispatching fish and cutting bad guys' air-hoses. <Edit> Did you know . . . when a bad guy gets his hose cut and the air starts pouring out, that means the exhaust hose was cut and the bad guy can keep breathing just fine?
