EDC knife - carry clipped or not?
For those of you who live in states/cities where you can carry your knife with the clip exposed, do you carry it this way or do you bury it in your pocket so that no part of the knife is visible?
I've carried clipped for the obvious reason - quick and consistent access. But I'm wondering if this is the best practice. At least two reasons I can see to carry totally concealed:
1. element of surprise - essentially the same argument about concealed firearm vs. open carry
2. element of surprise with respect to your concealed firearm - i.e., the guy who is looking for and sees your clipped folder might be alerted to look for any other weapons, such as a concealed handgun
