So: I was wondering what "type"...and what "size" folding knife many of you prefer. I am sure if ya'll are anything like me your taste varies and the "short" list of your favorites could be quite long. I'll take a few pics this weekend of some of my favorites (and "why") but I'd (and I'm sure many of us) like to hear about "your" favorites.
Do you have a "true pocket knife" that you carry? Are you more prone to a larger folder in a sheath on your belt? How about autos? Lockback or slip joint? Old school or newer designs?
Let me hear from you. As always, if possible, photos speak volumes and give everyone a better idea of what you are favoring...and "why". Hope this little idea turns into something.
Stay sharp, Capt. Chris
Start things off: Here's one of my favorites and a EDC for years. As I realized how scarce these were to find, I semi-retired it.
Gerber "Folding Sportsman II" in the Gerber leather belt sheath..."BUT"...(You know me. There's always a but)...this one is made is Solingen, Germany!

I carry an Emerson CQC7.

This is the only picture I have of it for now.

I carry my Buck 112 in its sheath. For me, it's just too much knife for my pocket.

Any one or all of these might be with me on a particular day. Possibly a Spyderco or 2 occasionally.

I carry a SAK, similar to Steve's and have for 30+ years. As well I carry one of the Bret Dowell's I own.

If I going to be outside working, I usually have a Schrade LB7. Tough as they come.

If I have my pants on, this small Sebenza is in my pocket. it has been my only EDC knife for six or seven years now. Broke about 1/8" or so off the tip several yeas ago and I reshaped it and sharpened it back, but it didn't look just right. I finally sent it back to CRK last year for a new blade and a refresh. The pocket clip is polished (instead of blasted) because it got scratched up when I went down on a bike and it was in my pocket. Worked the scratches down and polished it. I, personally, think the Sebenzas are the finest folders made anywhere. (not trying to open a can of worms, but just my opinion) The decorated parts used to be adorned with blue and gold, but it wore off years ago.

Pat,
I was waiting for you to go first on the Sebenzas as I know how much you like them. I've got a matching pair but they ride in custom Kenny Rowe belt sheaths. I'm not a "clip" guy. The clip, while functional, never feels right in my hand when I'm actually "using" the knife..."Never"...but great folders...no doubt. Mine have the clips removed and the plugs installed. (Apparently, I'm not the only "non clip guy").
Best, Capt. Chris
PS: Mine are a limted (one off) set with black cabochons.
I showed them, along with a Randall "Small Gambler" for size comparisons. The exotic skin, used in the insert of Kenny's sheaths was ostrich knee I provided...CCS

Drooling here, Cap!! Beautiful pair and I love the sheaths. I guess I'll have to dig out my safe queens.
As for the clip, I never even notice it's there while I'm cutting something, but the "plugs do make for a nice clean look. (especially with those fine sheaths!)

It's not pretty, it's cheap, it's easy to sharpen, and it has NO pocket clip. In your pocket, you don't know it's there. I've carried this particular knife for 23 years. My EDC.
