    It's refreshing, seeing a blue collar working man actually use his high quality CRK, to do his dirty work. That picture, is an amazing testimonial, for CRK!

    IT office worker and I carry a CRKT Drifter which is very office friendly and very good for cutting up my daily afternoon apple. The stainless steel gray titanium nitride finish blade is very easy to clean and maintain.

    I build die cast machines for the automotive industry.

    Usually I carry 2-3 knives in rotation. Strider SMF Tanto, Spyderco Tenacious, Spyderco Yojimbo 2, Spyderco Tuff, Swamp Rat Ratmandu...just to name the usual suspects. I work in a very knife friendly environment. My supervisor loves Busse Knives, and watched me chop up a 2x4 with my ASHBM in a vise with like 4 swings one day. He loved it.

    I'm a printer & currently manage the printing department of a health care company.
    I've carried a Leatherman Juice Pro for nearly 20 years and currently keep a RAT-1 and a SAK explorer in the back pocket.
    The mafnifier makes a great loupe when you dont want to bother with the real deal.
    Add a Craftsman folding utility knife and I'm all set.

    I guess you could say I haven't found "the" knife yet. I have however learned that pretty much any knife works for edc, the rest is personal preference! I just ordered my first Alox Sak which might change the game for me!

    That's what she said! :D

    sorry, couldn't resist

    I work in a computer lab environment with a lot of access controls and policies in place. I always have my SAK Classic on my keys, but I switch between a Kershaw Leek and a Sog Blink for my "other" blades. I like knives that can fit into the coin/watch pocket of my jeans so the Sog fits that bill nicely.

    Landscape account manager
    The leatherman and rat 3 are my heavy use, stick in the mud and fix irrigation tools, then I rotate through the folders pictured for normal cutting tasks.

    I recently added a streamlight microstream and I've also started carrying a lighter smaller folder in my left front pocket for delicate tasks (splinter picking etc).

    Yes. I carry up to 3 knives and a multitool. My co-workers think I'm crazy. I also always have any tool I or they need on me all the time.

    Former military / armed private security contractor. Went from that to private armored car / armed liability transfers to stay closer to home. Wanted better hours / more time with the family so I now work as a "Receiving Coordinator" working with logistics companies to schedule incoming deliveries to the warehouse I work in.

    I used to EDC WP_001308.jpg and a Schrade X-timer

    Chemist. My main work carries are a Sebenza 21 Insingo and an Umnumzaan. Mostly they just handle typical office-type tasks at work, opening a few packages a day. They also get used for food prep at our group meetings from time to time.

    I'm a Security Service Tech. My EDCs are a Benchmade 580 Barrage, SAK Cadet and a Gerber multitool. Not sure the model of the Gerber... I've had it since 1994, so whatever they sold then. Lol

    I am carrying my Spyderco Domino mostly. I was going to carry one of my Benchmades but they both got stolen out of my luggage by our wonderful TSA.
