    I'm a carpenter, been working scaffolding the past ten years and I always have a Vic Minichamp on my keys.
    Lately my pocket carry has been a Yojimbo 2 and Manix 2 S110V and an Izula on my harness.

    I work as a computer analyst at a private university and am not allowed to carry over a blade over 3" long (and cannot be a fixed) blade. I have several that fit the bill and switch-up often between Spyderco, BM, etc.
    Always have a "loaner" knife (lesser quality) in my pocket as well.

    Downtown Baltimore maintenance. Anything from painting, power washing, landscaping, etc.

    I carry many, but the one I'd specifically call my work knife is my large sebenza tanto micarta. There isn't a spot on it without a scratch , scuff, scrape. Still as mechanically sound as the day it arrived.

    Retired Firefighter/Paramedic, from 1982 until 1995 I carried a Buck 110, then from 1995 until 2001 I carried a Benchmade Eclipse. From 2001 until I retired in 2012 I carried an Emerson PSARK. All are great knives and I usually carried at least 4 knives but these were always in my pocket.

    Financial controller at a manufacturing plant. Most common knife use is to cut tomatoes or summer sausage at lunchtime. I carry lots of stuff but prefer large toothpicks or laguioles.... maybe a large trapper once in awhile... a muskrat when I feel dainty.

    ICU nurse for 13 years so I like something small,light, and functional so it was a BM 707 sequel which a coworker begged to buy from me, so now it's usually one of my BM mini-grips or my BM 531 and a leatherman squirt on me and then a fullsize leatherman and a 4sevens flashlight in my backpack in my locker. I have managed to get about 6 coworkers into Benchmades I have picked up from the used folders here on the forum.

    Mental Health Program Specialist and I carry a Tops Ferret. I prefer fixed blades over folders and love how tough this little 1/8" 1095 bugger is. I use it for anything you'd use a knife for.

    Engineering Program Manager at a semiconductor company. I work from hime half the week so I typically carry a large CRK Insingo or Hinderer 3.5 slicer. I fly on the company jet every Monday to Oregon so no knife for that day. If I'm in the local office it is only a Vic Alox cadet.

    Retail sales seasonal department at Walmart. I been carrying a cold steel counter point 1 as of late, before that red Kershaw blur. Store policy states no use of outside cutting tools but my manager allows me to use it in approiate situations. He understands using the store given box cutter to cut 1 inch plastic straps on freight is more unsafe than my well maintained and sharpened pocket knives.

    Forest Technician. I can carry whatever I want but it's usually a buck packlite caper or shorty kabar on my vest, with a leatherman surge in my front pocket and maybe a bm 940-1/contego/adamas folder/581. My BM 162 bushcrafter just came in, so that'll most likely replace the placklite caper that's currently on my vest.

    Government lawyer (environmental). I typically carry a ZT 0801, primarily because it's fun to flip. Admittedly, though, I've yet to encounter a loose thread or piece of paper it couldn't handle.
