There is nothing wrong with four knives, LOL. If you read my previous post, I carry at least three. One strongside, one weakside, one all purpose and sometimes a sheath knife.
Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

I've answered these type of questions all over the Internet, and will do so again.
Since it's winter I'm favoring my Carhartt Pants when I'm not working. Here's what I have in the pants, or on the belt right now:
3" Ruger GP100
2 Speedloaders for the GP100 in a Digital Camera Case (on belt)
1 Speedloader for the 442
1 Speed Strip with 5 Rounds
1 Pocket Knife (for chores)
CRKT M-16 (For Rescue/Defensive Use)
Fairbain Knife (fixed blade in a horizontal sheath on belt)
Civilian Wallet (Holds the Credit Cards and Driver's License)
Work Wallet (Holds my Credentials)
That is my off duty carry. The only change in the past year has been the Fairbain, it's a new addition. My wife gave it to me and it carries great for a weak hand draw.
Some of my co-workers think I carry "Heavy" but I don't think so. I am very familiar with an "Old School" LEO that won't carry less then three handguns and sometimes as many as five, on his person. He also has longarms in the vehicle. This is for off duty.

I'll second this....and can completly understand Lima's need for the extra tools.
Depending on my piticular job at the time, be it deployed overseas, under water and underway, during a maintaince period on the waterfront, working security, etc., etc., etc.......I'll have on me at any given time 2 to 4 knives, no less than 2 flashlites, a Gerber AND/or a Leatherman "digit" multi-tool. That's for work. I shead the "bat utility belt" when I (finally) get home!
