    I have my Spyderco Ladybug on me at all times. Often, I'll carry something else, too. But the Ladybug goes with me everywhere. Today, I had a meeting at a secure facility (like most facilities I have to go to, but even with the clearance and I.D. I had, this place wanted me to go through the full x-ray thing). Rather than give up my Ladybug (which, as you know, they just confiscate and don't "hold" for you), I called the people I was supposed to meet and cancelled. My boss gave me hell. Sigh...

    I ain't losing my EDC! :D

    When you can't watch a movie by yourself without chips in one hand and a knife in the other.

    This whole business of "leave it at home" or "leave it in your car" is a big con. In practice, it means you can never bring a knife anywhere, because you might have to go though a restricted area. "But why do you need it anyway?"

    People who carry knives always find a use for them just like people who carry a pen always find something to write.

    You are a knife nut when you need a knife for every seperate use.

    I have a car knife (Spyderco Assist 2)
    I have a knife that I keep beside my bed (Zero Tolerance 0200)
    I have knives that I rotate EDC knives (Spyderco Delica, Spyderco Sage 1, Kershaw Skyline)
    I have a knifes for water (Spyderco Dragonfly 2 H1, Spyderco Ladybug H1)
    I have a knife with serations (Spyderco Ladybug H1)
    I have a knife that is fun to play with (Spyderco Paramilitary 2)
    I have a knife that has to have an assist (Sog Aegis)
    I have to have a fixed blade that can cut wood (Becker BK2)
    I have a fixed blade.... wait screw this...

    The list doesn't really stop, just like the buying I do. I lie to myself and make up these excuses why I need to get another knife... knife NUT!

    I keep my Ladybug on my keyring so it is always with me. I have a quick disconnect between my house keys and my car keys. If I am going somewhere where I would get in trouble, I just separate my house keys with the lady bug and hide them and just take my car keys with me.

    When you slice your finger open while flipping a Spyderco and the wound can't heal because you keep flipping the knife and pulling the skin apart...

    To paraphrase: when fondling a knife takes priority over personal well-being.

    You know you're a nut when you can't find your keys on your keyring because of all the knives? ;)

    Or when you forget your knife at your desk and panic in the bathroom, because you might need it in the next 45 seconds before you get back to your desk.

    Magnaminous, what are those clips you've got all your stuff on?

    -When you accidentaly cut yourself with one of your blades- then look to see how clean the cut is.

    -You can identify the type of lock a knife has by the sound it makes.

    -You have a picture folder on your computer of your knives so you don't lose track.

    -When you reconsider going to certain places that have knife restrictions.

    -The "favorites" list on your computer has become a digital "to-get" list.

    -If you see a reason to spend $170 on a Starlingear bead for your knives.

    -If you find an XM-18 for the low, low price of $500 and think it's a great deal.

    -If you have no problem dropping $500 on a single knife because it really is a great deal. ^ :D

    -If you get anxious to go home after travelling somewhere without a knife.

    -If you find yourself re-winding and pausing movies to see what knife that guy was holding/using.

    -You get slightly disappointed at the character when you realize said knife is a cheap Chinese one.

    -If part of your trip planning includes researching knife shops near where you'll be.

    -You rationalize other expenses in terms of "How many knives could this get me? "
