    Carry Two Defensive Knives?

    Hi all,
    Reading through some of the threads I'm surprised to see how many of you carry more than one knife on a routine basis. I do have a little Swiss army on my key ring, but not counting that I just carry one 4" blade folder.

    So there's my question: why do you all carry more than one defensive knife?

    I only carry one, but have thought of carrying two.

    After a while you feel like a G I Joe with so much stuff, and the most of us will never use any of it in a defense mode.

    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    Usually just 1, but sometimes two. Especially if I'm going somewhere where I can't carry my gun.

    Same here. I'll usually only carry two when I can't carry a gun.

    always carry 1 strong side and 1 on weak side, you never know when one may not be an option to access

    If I'm drawing a knife for SD, it is a lethal force situation. It also most likely means that I have been tackled and am in a grappling situation and I can't get to my handgun (otherwise I would have drawn my handgun). When you are in a grappling situation, you don't know which hand will be able to get to which location. Having more options is better, especially since carry an additional knife has extremely little logistical cost (as opposed to carrying an additional handgun).
    A traffic ticket is formal recognition of a lapse in situational awareness.

    Agree, plus if you've bought two knives because you wanted to, saw another knife , etc. what's the point of leaving it to sit in a drawer at home?

    I've been known to carry multiples. But at most I have at least two a Kabar TDI and Blackhawk Crucible FX2 both very fine knives and are carried for close in engagments where I can't access my handgun or two keep someone from accessing my handgun. Have a happy New Year.

    I generally carry 3 knives, a Kershaw Blur plain edge strong side, a cheapy S&W SWAT with a partially serrated blade for normal cutting tasks, and then a Kershaw Chive weak side as a last ditch effort knife. Over the next couple months I'm planning to buy a Boker Subcom folder and an Endura wave for carry as well. At that time I'll have both bigger knives and the Smith everyday and the Subcom and Chive on campus where I can only carry knives under 2"
