    I own many knives, but nothing has moved the military out of the pocket!

    Financial Analyst, so I have the very dangerous job of flying a desk for a living. I work for a manufacturing entity where even the CEO has a folder clipped to his khaki's. I carry a Spyderco Dragonfly or Manbug in my pocket if wearing khaki's, a Mini Grip or Emerson CQC-7 if wearing jeans and have a GEC #92 in my briefcase for afternoon apple cutting. Oh, and a Leatherman Skeletool also in my briefcase for things that need to be snipped, or screwed.

    p.s. as someone else mentioned, love the diversity of this site!! Great bunch of folks.

    My go to knife on the job is a Leatherman Supertool 300. Does that count as a knife though? It simply has everything that I need (blades included of course :) ) I'm a welder so the pliers, wire cutters, and driver bits come in handy when having to service the machine(s) that I use on a daily basis.

    I work at a car parts store, and with our customer base I can get away with carrying basically anything. It seems to be between my MKT 187(F) or my Dragonfly.

    I tried the Techno for a while, but for some reason I really don't want to mar it up.

    Mike.

    Well in all honesty they're dummy rounds. We use them to test the ammo handling system. Even still 30mm rounds are always a cool backdrop for a knife

    When I'm not at work, I EDC a multitool also. I have a few dedicated knives but the blade is actually one of the tools I use the least on a regular basis so I don't EDC just a knife.

    Love the Leatherman tools. Good ol' made in the USA!
