    Back pocket carry is for communists and ne'er do wells.

  3. I usually carry IWB behind my belt, but if I put a knife in the outside edge of a back pocket I won’t be sitting directly on it.

    Preferably one clipped in each front pocket with a sak cadet alox in the watch pocket, pants permitting, or just one clipped in the RF pocket otherwise. If wearing dickies or cargos i might have one in the right leg down there sometimes and one clipped in the RF. Never tried a rear pocket. I like to carry 2 folders one large and one smaller.

    If you put a slit in the bottom of a watch pocket, you could probably carry a knife there that was a little too long for the pocket.

    Given a lot of people wear jeans and carry pocket knives and almost zero people wear jeans and carry pocket watches it would follow from the laws of logic and consumer retail economics that there would more jeans with a separate pocket knife pocket and less jeans with a seperate pocket watch pocket.

    But alas this is not the world we live in.

    Tip up, right front pocket, against the seam, like God intended. :p

    This is an intriguing idea, for any size knife with the right clip. It seems a similar philosophy to having shell loops in a jacket pocket. (While originally designed for shotgun shells, they work wonders for organizing knives, pens, small flashlights, etc. when you're not hunting.) I almost exclusively wear slacks and wrangler cargo pants so I don't have a watch pocket to try this out. I'd love to hear from anyone who has.

    Both for me on occassion. I sometimes carry an auto or medium sized folder in my front right pocket with a Spyderco Techno 2 clipped in my right rear pocket. The Techno is very small with a deep carry wire clip and doesn't get in the way when sitting
