    Two Usually

    I generally carry two. The first is the one pictured in the group icon. A Spyderco Endura 4. I love their knives. They're made in Japan and I still think the Japanese have some great skills when it comes to manufacturing blades. This particular knife is very thin, has a blade...

    I usually have one in my purse.

    Where I live, it's not likely I'll have to use it for self-defense, but it's better to be safe than sorry. And it's good for cutting fruit in a pinch, lol.

    Learn To Use It.

    Always Have

    i have always carried a pocket knife. you never know when you might need it. i used it at work quite a lot. now it is a little security, but not from other people. my pocket knife is way sharp. and when days are really bad i always have a way to reduce the pain.

    Almost everywhere. I am kind of a knife nut,

    I collect a lot of high end knives. My two current favorites are my Zero Tolerance 0300 and my discontinued Boker Albatros. Such cool knives. What do you carry?
