so you carry it everyday, but do you use it? a lot of these knifes look fresh out of the packaging
This thread is about what we're carrying. While I suspect that some people do take a knife out of its box, take a picture to post, then put the knife away, I don't concern myself with it. I may, occasionally, ask if somebody is actually carrying all the knives in their picture - like when somebody posts a shot of 4 modern folders, or a bunch of fixed blades - but I'm usually hoping the answer is yes... so I feel like less of a freak.

And, to answer your question - I typically carry 3 knives... and the reality is that sometimes I can go weeks without feeling compelled to use them. When I do, the knife often shows no sign of that use; but, if it does, those signs are generally easy to remove (sometimes I leave the smudges there for a while - just to appease the people that comment about new looking knives)

There’s a few threads you can scan thru and see knives being used, what they use them for, and the end result after years of use.

Me personally I use every knife I carry. If it’s in my pocket it’s getting used. I work in the trades so mine are getting used quite often as are a lot of other folks here. There’s also guys here who work in office settings and the need to use a knife doesn’t come up near as much, and they’ll tell you that. Doesn’t mean they can’t carry and enjoy the same knives as I do. I use CRKs. You can take a beat to hell scratched up CRK and in the right lighting it look brand new, tilt it a touch and see all the scars.

I’ve got a 4WD truck but I can promise you I don’t use the four wheel drive more than I use it. It’s there when I need it tho.

Here’s what I have with me today. The scratched up pic is from this winter. Today with the light outside how it is it looks brand new. Same knife, actually has more scars on it today than it did back then. 897A90CC-E3B4-4208-A1DD-704FC6C5B32E.jpeg 96753DCF-F7DC-42C0-8C31-D99ABF3F3F3F.jpeg
