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.
