    Leatherman multi tool. Dad always carried one, now I do too. Feel naked without it. It's like having a small toolbox on your belt. Use it every day.

    Just remember if you hand it to them closed they hand it back closed or visa versa. You dont want any bad luck....per my old man. :)

    Along that same line. When I was growing up, whether it was a godfather, pap, or my papaw, when I was given a knife they would make me give them a dollar or a quarter or penny. Whatever I had handy. They said that giving a knife to someone for nothing would cut the friendship. I still make people give me a coin if I give them a knife. Tradition I guess.

    1C999732-EB8C-4121-9C5F-F1FDEFEDB3E7.jpeg This is what I’ve been carrying for the last 10-15 Years. I don’t think they are well thought of in knife snob circles because they are Chinese now, but it cuts when I need it to and it is about the right size. All the knives that I have gifted to my kids are Case knives. A little better than Chinese junk I guess. This knife is like those cheap sunglasses that you never break and can’t lose. They arent Raybans, Oakleys, or Maui Jim’s but they are your favorite pair and you don’t want to start with a new one. As long as they are up to the task no need for a different pair.

    My knife is my most universal tool. I would rather leave the house without my wallet than my knife.

    Humans have been carrying sharp edged tools/knives for many thousands of years. Here's one from Franklin County Kentucky that's around 5-9,000 years old..There's plenty out there that are much older than this one.

    I carry a Case Canoe, have since long as I can remember. I like it because it's not bulky or heavy. A good sharp knife
    comes in handy at times.

    I carry a 3 blade Case that must have a sheeps foot blade on it. Always make fun of guys that need to use my knife because their wife won't let them carry one.
