While I've accrued a few traditional pieces in the last few weeks, I've only really carried one (the #15 Cap Lifter in ebony). It doesn't sit in a pocket with keys or anything, just usually alone. Still, it gets tossed on my desk with my other stuff occasionally, and so it's built up both a patina and some scuffs/scratches. Personally, I don't mind, but the sheen of the polished wood is almost gone. Do you folks pocket your users bare, or do most of the folks here use a pocket slip or sheath? I try to keep everything as minimal as possible (AAA light next to the wallet, knife in back left pocket, that's usually it). So, adding extra fluff isn't ideal. But is it worth it? What do you all recommend?
