    I'll be carrying an Alox Victorinox Electrician for a while. I'm on a business trip and tossed it into my checked luggage, figuring it was a good all around carry, not worth stealing, and not very expensive if it got lifted from my luggage.

    I didn't have a chance to sharpen it before I left but the factory edge is pretty darn good on both blades, so it should work for the trip.

    Always have a black Vic Classic, and often I carry a Black Farmer.

    Classic or Signature Lite on my keychain (depending on which vehicle I am driving).

    Climber in my bookbag, which goes nearly everywhere I go.

    I have a Rambler on my keychain (which is always in my pocket) and a SwissTool on my belt. I have SAKs stashed everywhere and use them often.

    I guess no matter what else I have on me, I can't leave the house without my keys, and the classic attached to them.

    I've been carrying a #15 GEC TC Barlow so that my pants don't fall off my waist when I also carry my SAK...I love carrying the Alox Pioneer or the Nylon Climber II. Today, it was the Pioneer in the front left and the little Barlow in the rear right.

    Today, blue Tinker in the pocket and a Super Tinker riding in my laptop bag.

    Oh, and I almost forgot about the Classic SD on my keyring.

    That would be the Adventurer. My favorite. The side locking button really makes it easy to close the knife and it has never failed me. It can be done one handed. The Adventurer is a SAK that doesn't get a lot of respect. Essentially it's a big Tinker.

    Seems like a handful on a key chain (with keys). I have heard that heavy weights gradually wear out the ignition switch?

    I alternate...Vic Climber, Alox Pioneer. wood handle Spartan, Tinker, One handed Trekker, Wenger Tool Chest Plus, Gerber LST ultralight, Gerber multi tool, and believe it or not, an Opinel No. 8, being one the finest blades on the market at a low price.

    I carry a silver alox farmer (love the selection of tools and nothing I don't need regularly), in my left front pocket. It's my sheeple friendly knife.
    I normally EDC a BK11/14 on my belt, have a svord peasant knife in my right front pocket, the SAK farmer in my left front pocket, a leatherman charge on my maxpedition jumbo edc, and I have a skyline and a roach belly in the maxpedition.
    I used to have a leatherman squirt on my keychain as well, until the last time I flew and forgot to take it off. All hail the TSA. They took my squirt due to the 'dangerous' blade on it, but I got to keep the 7" steel barrel ink pen I carry, because that's not dangerous at all. :)

    Pack light and stay sharp folks.

    This is the only SAK I have. It never gets pocket time but its always handy to have around. It's been lost in the rafters in the up north place for a year - lost in gear bags for months and still manages a place in my pack.

    That is a cool camo pattern; real tree? I have a camo One Handed Trekker. At the time it was the only "color" that was available with a plain edge. I have since picked up a black handled one.

    That camo knife would be really really easy to loose in the outdoors. Just sitting the knife down on a log or the ground and look away and you might have lost it.

    I have been giving this Rucksack some belt time in an old Chicago Cutlery leather sheath. Its a slide lock with a great saw blade and a full complement of tools. These big vics really cut well with the big handle purchase and that long thin blade.
