    Always knife

    OK now I have various sizes of handguns and can dress around at least one of them wherever I go BUT there are those times when you can not carry. For me as a Grand parient its high school football games and other school functions with my grandkids. So I always carry a folding knife I am very partial to the CRKT Crawfor Kasper folder in fact when it was discontinued by CRKT I bought 3 more just to keep in the safe if I lost my main one. I have taken a couple of classes on the use of the folder and feel pretty safe carring one when I can't carry a handgun. Anyone else have a favorite carry knife that you have trained with?

    My favorite "fighting folder" is the Spyderco P'Kal...my favorite "any task" folders are either the Delica or Endura (also Spydercos).

    I love the Crawford/Kasper design (I have a couple of the Polkowski/Kasper Companions...same design, just a fixed-blade). However, I've never bought one of the folders because I hate liner locks.

    Thankfully, where I live I can carry a fixed-blade. Currently my "go to blades" are either a Cold Steel push-dagger, or one of the aforementioned Companions with a sharpened swedge.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Ditto. For fixed, I have a Goldsworthy Shadowdancer or Hankins hawksbill.

    First generation, delica. I've had 2 since just about the day Spyderco opened their doors......1990ish if I remember right. I think I'd cry if I lost either one of them, but one or the other is always with me.

    My problem is, every folder I have is my favorite and I like them as much as my fixed blades!

    I think I'm a knifeaholic!

    The Shadowdancers are nice, I had one of the first ones...Mark makes great knives.

    I'm not into knives as art forms, but carry two, one for mundane daily use and one for possible worst case SD - and that one is Cold Steel Recon 1. Because it's 4" (max legal in TN), uber sharp, comfortably flat, opens in a flash, great bigass grip could hold onto if coated with KY jelly, lethal as any, and not least of all, I'm only out about 55 clams should I somehow lose it!

    I have a decent sized collection with some fine blades but I find that I have a simple Gerber Aluminium handled folder I picked up at the PX 2 years ago in my pocket most of the time.

    I have a lot of knives, but the one I always go to is my Boker AK-74 (even came in a case shaped like the mag) in a switch configuration and I carry it at all times and it will be the one I always use until I get a microtech

    I don't have lot of knives (6-8 is not a lot). I have only three knives that I carry (not at the same time)...two are folders.
    Both the folders are Kershaws...Ken Onion Leeks. I've had no knife training, but I can easily have my Kershaw out and open in an instant with one hand...I can open and close my Kershaw with one hand.
    (I did use a few band-aids getting the closing part down pat...)

    I carry a Benchmade 750SBT Pinnacle everyday, all day. It's a 3.6" framelock blade in ATS-34 with Ti handles. Works for me.
