Nice, I most always have a Kershaw Storm in my pocket. It's no designer knife but very well made for the money.

Kershaw Scallion. (external link)

~$30 - so WHEN (not if) you loose it, you won't cry.
Easy single handed open close.
holds a good edge.
not too big, but big enough - not gonna scare anyone with it.

I recommend removing the safety as it can be sticky at inopportune times. (very easy - just take out a screw). I don't the version with serrations (true of any knife) - can't sharpen.

I have a couple. One is always on me.

Just remember to remove your knife or Leatherman before you head out on an airplane trip ... or you will sadly have to throw it in the trash or collection bin at security!:o:cry:

I can personally vouch for this.... :(:o

I carry a butter knife in case I get hungry and want to butter my bread. It also works as a screwdriver in a pinch. :lol:

Great knife for all round use. Love the locking liners on it, unlike other Victorinox knives.

interesting thread. i've got an old buck xtract that's finally showing its age. i'll be looking to upgrade to some leatherman :D i find the multitool to be very hand and i've definitely appreciated a bigger blade. if anyone has suggestions for a good multitool with a 3"+ blade i'd be glad to hear it!

A Gerber LMF ii is always in my bag. Never know when a large, sharp fixed blade knife with a 'skull crusher' butt might be needed ;)

+1 for the LMF II

Now if I could just find a camera bag with PALS webbing.

No, I'm not a professional photographer, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Anybody looking for a handy multi-tool for the urban jungle check out the Leatherman Skeletool series. I have the all silver model with standard blade(first gen I guess) and have used it hard but not abused it and it's still tight as new. It's just the right size for everyday carry, at least it has been for the past 3 years.

For a multitool, I'm very happy with my Leatherman Charge Ti (titanium).
The blade is SV30 steel, which is the finest tool steel that Leatherman (or anyone else) has ever put into a multitool. Every single tool has a 'lock', so it wont' snap back on your fingers. Check it out !

Forget Gerber and all that other Crap. I've become a big fan of ESEE and BECKER. These are favorites:

IZULA II (external link)

BECKER BK7 (external link)

BECKER BK11 (external link) - Also has a sheath to hang around neck or clip to camera bag like another poster put.

There's also the BK2 that I own. ITS A BRUTE!!
