    I have carried a pocket knife daily since I was 10 years old. The only thing that has changed is the type of pocket knife I carry.

    I started off with the "coolest knife", I could find(I was 10-13).
    Then I went to the most utility knife (Swiss Army Multitool) (14-16).
    Then it was spring assisted or switch blade knives (17-19).
    Now it is the most "well Built" sub $30 pocket knife I can find. I got tired of losing expensive knives....

    What do you carry?

    I don't carry everyday, but I do carry religiously at work. I really like Benchmade. Not the cheapest but not crazy expensive. Plus they give a nice discount to Mil/LE.

    I have a few but carrying this one currently:

    Oh the current daily carrier is a Smith&Wesson "Cuttin Horse". I like this knife, it is the easiest to sharpen I have had in its price range and it keeps sharp.

    Benchmade makes some quality knives! I have a few but am afraid to lose them, as typically I lose my knife within 3 months.

    Never had one of these but I have heard good things about them.

    Also Interesting fact Angelina Jolie has a massive knife collection!

    I carry one of two Benchmade's either my older automatic Presidio with serrated blade or my automatic Adamas black with a plane blade...Oddly enough I need to take both in to get re-sharpened. The hard part is going to their store and not leaving with another knife. Last time I went in I left with an HK Hatchet. I miss my vendor discount... it was WAY better then the military discount and probably the only reason I have either of those knives....or the hatchet for that matter.

    I was raised on a ranch. I carried a Shrade stockmans knife in the 4th grade. I used to wear out my jean pocket with the knife and pocket watch I always carried... Still have the knife by the way..... Pocket watch long gone.

    I've always carried a knife daily. I also used to drop a lot of money but for EDC prefer to spend under $100. This Hoffman Richter is a tank and keeps a good edge without a lot of maintenance.

    Great knife. I love mine. Little too bulky for edc for me though. Especially in shorts. But it definitely goes on camping trips
    This spyderco endura has served me well for the past 4 years:

    I have a few different Smith and wesson m&p knives. They are pretty nice and price is right so you don't have to care about them

    I have this Gerber for every day. Nice and thin. Haven't shanked anyone but it cuts tape and stuff just fine. I have carried it for over 10 years with zero issues. I have a Kershaw with a serrated Tonto that I like but it's a bit bulky.
