I carried a Schrade 3 folder all thru highschool.While others were getting theirs taken away by teachers and the principle.I just kept mine in my pocket and never had any problem.That way I wasn't without it,when at work,before and after school.

I have a little credit card knife in my wallet,  I use to carry a pocket knife at work for over 30 years I kind of went away from carrying one after I retired and it seems like I always need one and it's not on me at the time.   When I do carry one it's usually a  Lone Wolf Harsey or Victorinox deluxe tinker Swiss army knife with the little pliers.   I did pick up a beautiful Olive wood Muela Toledo folder when vacationing in Toledo Spain famous for their Armor, Swords,  during the Roman days to present.

That's a big knife, John.   I have one a friend gave to me as payment for some work I did. I have a Victorinox as well, Zonie. It is pretty bulky for EDC . That Harsey is a top notch knife.  If it's D2 steel, there were only 50 made.

Grouchy mine is not the D2 steel it's the  Harsey T1,   CPM-S30V steel.   I honestly didn't know a whole lot about them it looked kind of cool so I bought it.  More of a smaller  pocket size tactical knife  ,  it's OK for skinning deer & elk,   Holds and edge, use it mostly as a utility knife every day carry type.

If I remember correctly, Harsey evolved into Bench Made. There were never a lot of them made, but the D2 steel one is worth a bunch in a unused state. D2 is a outstanding knife steel and holds a edge long after everything else is dull. It's just shy of chromium to be a true stainless.

For anyone who owns a case knife, I found a collectors guide that has info on different types and styles of knifes with stamp patterns and years made. When you open the link, it's open at about the half way mark of the guide, so you'll have to scroll to the top to start at the beginning.

My FIL has a huge case knife collection.
Remember 10534

Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

   +1  I've got a Gerber Eddie Bauer edition heavy bodied multi tool with sheath that I got as a gift almost 30 years ago, and a gifted Leatherman I received about 10 years ago, and the knife blades on both are still super sharp.

None of my  core  hunter friends use big fixed blade knives for skinning or boneing any larger game anymore.  Most of us have went to various sized pocket knifes and a couple of us still have very small Damascus fixed blade's maybe 2" to 2 1/4 " blade length, leather  1/2  sheath that fits in my pocket, short  and sharp little knife's.   I agree most of these better quality Multi tools can get the job done,  I use to get the Gerbers at work and still use them although the SOG is awfully nice.  All of my taxidermy friends locally have went to Victorinox swiss classic curved shaping knife's , little fixed blade 2.4 "  blade curves downwards, they use these for skinning when animals are brought in and more importantly for capeing, they buy them by the gross and toss them after a few sharpening's, they usually give me few.  they are cheap 3 or 4 bucks apiece in bulk.  They are not a pocket knife but  with a little sheath and stuffed in your pocket they might as well be one.

I still use a fixed blade knife for hunting use. I wouldn't consider it a big knife, just one of my favorite blade steels.  :)

 Grouchy, it's really a belt knife more than a pocket one. I remember at a small "dinner party" taking it out to cut a tough piece of meat (the host didn't see it as he was at another table) the guy sitting across from me remarked that he wouldn't want to piss me off. Dumb me said, "I didn't think it was that "big". JM
