i loves me some knife pictures.
i'm about 5'8", about 190 lbs., on a good day. the two knives i carry are:
the Spyderco Chinook II. i bought it when they were first released years back. it's been my #1 ever since. i carry it 100% of the time. it gets used for everything, from opening boxes, to gardening, to cutting steak when i'm having dinner, to light prying, and cutting just about anything else i can think of. i have no doubt this knife would work defensively.
the only other knife i carry with any regularity is a karambit, a 5.11 Journeyman. i carry it 95% of the time. it's the one in the middle:
I called grand prairie knives for a knife I was looking for, had the BEST price for it hands down. Hopefully find someone close by though if I cant will have to order from another home store.
They were real helpful at GP.

I have many knives I have collected over the years. All have served me well.
I currently carry an Emerson CQC-7BK in 154 CM with his "wave feature." Truely the fastest deploying folder in the world. Give it a pull from the pocket and it's ready to rock and roll. I quit carrying my Benchmade Striker Auto because it's too slow to put into action unless it's in your hand. I carry the Emerson strictly for last defense.
Another knife I like came as a 60th birthday preasant from some Army Rangers I support in Afghanistan. It's made by Strider PGT 10, I think, and is the strongest folder have ever used. I carry it daily for general use and have found it t be superior in all areas. It's made from SV30 steel and the liner lock is a massive slab of titanium combined with G10 scales. Guarenteed not to break at the pivot, ever. Actually if it breaks they will repair it for $15.00 S&H. So they say.
My last favorite knife is a knife made by Bob Dozier. It is a K-2 Companion made from D2 tool steel it a small fixed blade called a companion. An exceptional knife for its size.
For any other cutting chores I use an axe or primer cord.

I carry my Klein folding droppoint lockblade (yeh I'm an electrician) for everyday use including stripping wire if needed. It holds an edge very well, and on my belt a Buck 110 with a 3 3/4" blade.

I carry either a Spyderco Tenacious or Gerber Paracord. I usually carry the Spyderco more often as it feels much sturdier than the gerber.
I carry a Leatherman Wave in a pouch with a full bit kit, carry it 7 days a week, use the serrrated blade at work to open boxes, cut banding (plastic and metal) use the pliers to grab stuff, use the snips to cut thicker metal banding, use the saw to cut cardboard tubes and on and on and on, probably pull it out 50-80 times a day, worn out three holsters... Best moeny I have ever spent on a knife/tool. When hiking I carry a vintage K-BAR, or a Kershaw skinner. Have many smaller knives but use them for whittling and the like.
A lot of cool stuff here...
