    Lawyer, work from home - where I have a wall full of knives by my desk and usually a pistol on me. At court I carry...nothing but a pen and a cell phone.

    I'm an owner operator of a demolition business. I carry a Kershaw Blur the most, but rotate through 16 other Kershaw knives as well.

    A basic threat assessment would show a lawyer is more dangerous with a pen than a pistol:D

    I'm a software engineer, so I don't need a knife to do my job. I do, however, have a knife with me at work. Usually a Small Sebenza, Caly 3, mini grip, Fällkniven U1, meer-kat and/or ladybug. I never carry anything larger than a large Sebenza.

    I do construction and the one that never changes is the leatherman rebar. Lately I've been carrying either an esee 4 or bm 908 as my primary knife.

    Optician, so when in the office- normally a Benchmade 531 or US made Kershaw Zing. Sometimes a junk knife, just because. A Victorinox Mechanic, Gerber EAB, multi-tool all ride in the tool bag.

    During my time in the service, 1976-2002, CRKT M16-02 or Marzitelli Prowler. The Prowler I would be willing to buy again. M16-02, not so much.

    Pretty cool thread-

    Machinist here as well- always have my Leatherman Wave (now I carry in a Maxpedition single sheath on my belt), Benchmade Ritter Mini-grip, and a Fenix P2D or LD12 light with me for work.

    Leatherman and flashlight get the most use. Leatherman saves me trips back to my toolbox when I need a screwdriver for table screws, and for pulling sticky pins quickly out of a fixture.
