    I carry one weak side, one strong side, and a LDK strong side. Thinking about adding a fixed blade weak side.

    My folder is in my pocket on my strong side. Sometimes I carry a ESEE Izula horizontally on my belt on my other strong side… ;) When I do, I usually don't carry a folder. Although I've done some h2h and knife classes, I kind of look at the folder as more of a tool, I usually carry a Benchmade 710 or Strider SNG. I probably should work on that view though.

    When I'm hunting I carry a Chris Reeve Green Beret on my support side. I see the utility of both ways of carry though. Since I carry my handgun on my strong side and I need my knife, it's pretty obvious there's something inhibiting me from reaching my handgun, so I'd likely not be able to grab my knife either.

    Kyle DeFoor has a write up on this somewhere, I'll have to dig it up.

    Strong side front pocket. I use my blade more than my pistol, being right handed, its only natural.

    Weak side
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Weak side as an emergency tool in case my strong side is occupied or unavailable.

    jonconsiglio kind of touched on why I was asking. My knife to my is primarily a tool. I use it multiple times a day. My current EDC is a spyderco endura 4 which while I love and is great as a back up defensive blade its a bit large and scary for "social situations". I recently purchased a leatherman skeletool which actually has a really nice blade on it. Currently it is ridding in my left hand pocket and I try to use that for every day cutting tasks. The problem is it's kind of annoying having to grab it with my left hand and then transition it to my right hand. I could carry the Letterman in my right pocket and move my endura to my left but I am about as far from ambidextrous as you can get and I have little faith in being able to deploy a folder (much less under stress) successfully with my left hand. I've tried to practice but it just doesn't work for me. So...That has had me wondering if I really NEED to be carrying a "tactical folder" for defensive purposes. I could just not carry one. That would actually free up my left pocket for something that could be infinitely more useful like OC spray.
