Hello, I am new to the forums, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts. I currently have 7 blades that are either on me (5 or 6) or close by (1 or 2) and although I have the various knives I do for specific reasons (I will explain) I am unsure if I am carrying too many. Also, because they all make sense for me to carry, I figure it makes more sense for me to ask you all which ones I shouldn't carry (and why) rather than which ones I should; however, if you prefer answering in the positive rather than the negative, it won't bother me. So here goes. I have an 8in custom bowie with the back half of its spine being saw teeth, and the bottom 3in of the blade closer to my hand (sorry I don't know the terminology for that location) is a scandi grind: this is my main 'survival knife' (it is on my belt in its sheath unless I am somewhere that is not ok and then it is in my car). I have a Condor Bushlore in my left inside jacket pocket: this is my bushcraft primary knife. I have a Kabar Mule (Tanto, half serrated) clipped inside my right pants front pocket (I would call it my secondary 'survival knife'). I have a Condor Otzi neck knife around my neck, under my shirt (its a small blade utility knife). I have a John Deere multitool in my right inside jacket pocket. I have an 'Omniblade' in my backpack which is a kukri/saw/hatchet combination. And lastly, I have a Boker Magnum Rustic lockback pocket knife loose in my left pants front pocket (this is the one I usually let others use when they ask if someone has a knife). In a lot of ways this doesn't feel like a lot to me, and its not uncomfortable, but also, I do sometimes think it is excessive... what are the thoughts of you who are reading this?
as I was reading my way down the list I was expecting to hear that you keep a Opinel in your prison wallet.
