Kershaw Chive in the watch pocket of my jeans and either a RAT folder or Kershaw Leek in one side of a double mag pouch (extra mag in the other side).
I carry a pocket knife of some kind just about every day (the main exception being when I have to fly for work). I've got a box full of various makes and models but I think my Spyderco Delica is probably my most carried folder.

Spyderco Delica4 FFG with a bright blue handle.
yes I do...
same-one I've been carrying since I was a Cub Scout
and I use it everyday for something; even if it is too simply pick tarter from my teeth!
I carry a Gerber FAST Draw. I've been carrying this knife for over three years now. Along with my Leatherman New Wave.
Oh yeah I also carry a leatherman micra.
Yessir since I was 9 yrs old. My do all knife is whatever I grab, usually a CRKT m16 folder, Benchmade griptillian or a kabar warthog thrown in my front pocket. For defensive purposes I have a 2nd griptillian, a camillus HEAT, A ka bar tactical folder, and for when dress allows or if I feel like it, a Ka Bar 7 1/2 inch utility combat beast. And for the zombie apocalypse, a gerber machete with saw back :)
Yes, I carry a knife on me everyday and it's a gerber. I would use it in a self defense situation if that is what I had but that isn't the main reason why I carry it. While working or going through normal life it is a good tool to have with me and use when needed. It's not a bad thing to be prepared.
Kershaw OD-1 or Ontario RAT-1 depending on the planned tasks for the day.
I prefer to carry a defensive folder, and a beater. Currently carrying an Al Mar Payara for my defensive carry, and a Timberline Timberlite for my beater. Shopping for a SAK to take over utility use.
