    This is the combination i been bringing to work lately
    i think i have better knives than the dozier, but none that ride so flat in the pocket (it at least shares the pocket, the other moderns i have a pretty thick)

    Jeff, that Milwaukee Utility knife is the best I've ever owned!!!! and I like you have many of them but it's simply the best. When working that's the one I carry as well.

    Happy Thanksgiving by the way

    Paul, a happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well.

    I agree its the best. Only after having it now for over a year am I really starting to find some flaws in its design. The number one is no extra blade storage, while it hasnt been a deal killer it is a factor. Those 4 little screws that hold the blade cover on, they keep coming out and they are getting stripped. Think I will super glue them in place. I really cant ding it anywhere else. I love the ergos and the fast open/close.

    I have been admiring the new dewalt folding utility knife. A little fatter but folds smaller and holds 3 blades. Sure its just a matter of time before I try one out. Ill let ya know if its worth picking up over the milwaukee.

    I bought the Sebenza in 2007. The whittler makes a nice addition to it.

    I finally got around to making a picture of a typical modern/traditional pairing. I have used this one or a minor variation at times when there is some ugly work to do. The modern is a Kershaw "Needs Work" and this particular traditional is a Craftsman peanut that Vince gave away in 2010 if I remember correctly.



    When I have a big modern (and most of mine are bigger than my traditionals), I will use a small traditional for regular cutting chores. Especially in public.

    An unusual yet workable combo.

    I really like how this thread gives some perspective in both directions.

    Nice scales, did you make those yourself? Certainly looks a tiny bit classier than the standard Emerson

    Most of the time when I don't carry a small fixed blade it's this one paired with whatever traditional is in the pocket.

    No sir, its an EKI handmade original. At the time I spoke to Mr. Emerson on the phone and he said it was the only wood handled knife he had made to date. That outlaw is looking awesome! It makes me want to pocket mine today. Im a huge fan of the micarta sebbies too (carried mine for a year straight).

    Thanks, I like how the patina is so even on this one. The trick is just to make sure the whole blade is covered with juice when cutting fruit as it seems
    And I don't regret getting the micarta version at all, it feels much warmer in hand and looks more interesting.

    What kind of wood is that? It looks really funky with those 'splotches' in the midst of the regular grain (in a good way that is), I've never seen anything quite like it.

    Yup, a great looking patina you have going on. I don't remember the exact type of palm wood that Mr. Emerson told me it is. After a couple hour conversation on the phone with him he refinished the entire knife for me and sent it back with a hand written page long letter on all the build and material details. I will have to dig it up later. I do know he told me he had never seen or expects to see another piece of wood like that one. I like it and in person it blows away what my meager photos show for it.

    Looks like what I've heard people refer to as "lacewood." Very nice combos, guys!

    In so far and in the hopes that this thread persists as a variant of the what are you carrying today thread and thus open to repeats....

    Today, like most days, I'm carrying this...


    Every Day Carry Pairing by Pinnah, on Flickr

    There's really precious little I'm not equipped to tackle with this combo. The exception would be a need for pliers. For this, I have a backpack with a larger multi-tool stashed away. I reach for that maybe once every few weeks? The Opinel and and Micra both get used multiple times a day.

    Well, if you're open to repeats, I'm carrying this pairing again today as I do most days. I'm also carrying my Leatherman Juice C2 in a belt sheath as usual.
