    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.
