I carry a no-name dollar store 2 inch folder.

I have been too many places where I had to drop my "weapons" in the trash before I could enter. I stopped carrying anything expensive a looooong time ago.

Hey, it still takes an edge (that usually lasts a whole day or so) and opens boxes and cuts packing straps. And it is with me when I need it, not like the fancy ones back home in the closet.

Dave, I used to do the same thing, and it makes a lot of sense. When I was 14, my dad gave me a Case pocket knife which I was very proud of. I carried it for 10 years, then lost it in the field at Ft Carson. For the next 20 years I carried cheap knives with no sentimental value, and lost many of them on jumps and during deployments. The last one I carried was a cheapy walmart knife that cost $5. It was a pretty good knife in all respects. Lost it on a jump.

Now that I'm finally leaving the service, I've transitioned back to knives I can be proud of. I carry a Buck 110 at work, and love it. When I'm not at work, I carry one of the new Buck Sprint Selects. I really like it. Never been a believer in flippers, but this one is fine.

Most days I carry a Buck Bantam and a Leatherman that I can't remember what model it is. Both are cheap enough that if I break or lose them its no big deal. On days when I want something a little nicer I carry a J. Marttiinni MFK in curly birch. On rare occasions I want a fixed blade I carry either a J.Marttiinni Lynx or Condor. Yeah, I like Finnish knives!

Right now it's a Case Pocket Worn Red 2 blade Teardrop. Also have a Case Canoe and a Mini Yellow Trapper. The Trapper and the Canoe are carbon steel. I also have a very small Bear Lock back. I have several other knives but 1 of these 4 is the one I'm likely to have in my pocket.

Kershaw Leek (sp?), non serrated blade, black. For the money, $35-40 just plain hard to beat.

Lately I have been carried this old Kabar that an old friend added buffalo horn scales and filework on the backspring. Unfortunately it is a poor edge holder and needs sharpened often.

For anyone doing any actual, serious cutting with their EDC, l would strongly recommend you move to one of the super-steels. My fav is S110v, but there are several others.

My EDC is a semi-serrated Spyderco Delica 4. I have the larger brother to it, the Endura, but I like the smaller one better.

Leatherman Micra is finding more time in pocket lately. It stays completely out of the way and has EDC office use that my wallet knife SOG Crosscut used to, requiring more time to deploy. The Micra may be changed out to necklace lanyard carried with a Vietnam era aviation 'thataway' compass given to me by my Uncle when I was a teenager (I'm close to 60 now ) so I decided I better put it to more use.

I have Four knives that I EDC (one at a time). When one gets dull I grab another. When they’re all dull I sharpen them all and start the rotation over. Right now it’s a Kershaw Skyline Damascus, a regular Kershaw Skyline, Benchmade Bugout and Benchmade Bugout Mini.

I also rotate out my pocket knives. Sometimes it is because I am spending time in a place with blade length restrictions (!), sometimes it depends on weather/environment (for instance, on the water, I prefer stainless). At the moment, I have a GEC Model 48 in my pocket. D2 machine steel, warnecliff main blade, half stop, and dark wood handles. Old school quality in a modern package.
