I do, I collect mostly small and medium sized folding knives. If you carry one, what is it?

6" Balisong or my 4" Benchmade folding lock-blade. I never leave home w/o one (unless I know I'll be subject to a search at a concert or something).

Not in my pocket, but in my school bag. Just a cheap little plastic folding knife. The blade is sharp enough for what I use it for: opening letters, cutting paper into smaller pieces of paper, prying things apart in lab classes, etc.

I do have pretty big collection of knives, daggers, swords back home. Mostly obtained through Ebay, but several I purchased in Toledo, Spain.

I have a fake mini swiss army knife in each state on my keyring. I used to carry a 2.5 inch serrated flip open knife that I was told to stop carrying because I have a really bad habit of fiddling with it (making an audible clicking noise) in my pocket especially when someone was annoying me.

My daughter was in Europe last summer. She brought me an actual Swiss Army Knife from Switzerland. I now keep it on my key chain. I am sure that it is a tourist thing but I love it. It is about 3 inches long, silver with raised gold pictures of the Matterhorn and the Swiss flag along with silver filigree. It has a bottle opener, a can opener, an awl (who uses an awl), a corkscrew, and (believe it or not) a knife blade.

Does this (thinkgeek.com) count? I used to carry a pocket leatherman, but that was proving too bulky for my pockets.

Hard to believe that I remember when there was a time when it was almost common to see kids in my high school with small pocket knives in small leather sheaths attached to their belts.

A kid doing that today would immediately be arrested and thrown out of that school for life.

We used to take butterfly knives to school (mid-80s), nothing ever made of it.

I don't carry a knife, but I have a small collection (mostly worthless, but sentiment and all...).

I have a twine cutter on my keychain. It looks sort of like a tiny metal scythe.

An awl could be quite handy for self defense. If it folds out perpendicular to the body of the knife, hold the knife under your knuckles and make a fist with the awl pointing out between your middle and ring fingers. It's meant to penetrate tough materials, more effective for SD than the blade on an SAK would likely be, particularly if striking at the head.

See what happens when you Google the word "FAILURE".
