    I'm not sure why I haven't thought of this sooner! This is by far the easiest way I've ever carried my Swisschamp. Don't get caught on stuff anymore

    right now I have my Delica in my r/f pocket, Leatherman Wave in a pouch on my left side, and a Foliage Green Ladybug on my keys.
    But I'm at home watching the kids today, so my keys are on the rack.

    So my issue with this question is simple: Which knife???lol

    Sounds like a lot of you guys carry one to two knives.
    Just doesn't work for me. To be fair/honest, yeah, I could
    make it through just about any day, with just my LM Wave.
    I just don't want to. lol.

    So right now...
    LM Wave, with after-market pocket clip in my back right pocket.
    Clipped vertical, next to my wallet.

    Spyderco Manix 2 XL on right front pocket, clipped.

    Inside my front right pocket are a Cold Steel Twist Master, medium size
    clip point in Carbon V and a Victorinox Huntsman.

    At about 2:30 on my belt is an all black Benchmade Adamas in
    the factory sheath.

    Lastly, an ESEE 4 on the inside of my left ankle.

    So, I guess that's 5. I have a tendency to just see one of my
    knives and think of something I like about that knife. Then it's
    somehow in my pocket. lol. Oh well, it's mine...

    Yeah I'm definitely a "minimalist" style EDCer. If I added another knife to my Swisschamp on the clip rig above and the Swissclassic on my keychain I might carry my Folts Minimalist neck knife again. I try to carry as little as possible and of what I carry I'd be ok with being stranded somewhere.

    I've got a Victorinox Ranger in a pouch on my belt (right hip), on one set of keys I have a Victorinox Bantam and on another set of keys I have a Victorinox Rambler.
    The main thing is to have some useful tools handy when you need them.

    Opinel in RFP, Micra in LFP (used a lot more than when on a key chain) with money clip and Wave carried in my day pack.

    Vic Classic (usually) in RFP; something else — slipjoint or lockback (depends on whim and situation) — in the jeans watch pocket. No belt pouches or sheaths. If I'm toting a fixed blade, it'll be sheathed and in a backpack.

    Knife is usually in the pocket, if needed.

    But for MT, these two ways are usually how I carry:

    Ranger Band carry:

    Magnetic Carry:

    IWB, right front. Out of the way of my keys and change in my right front pocket. Can occasionally get a little sweaty.

    Right front pocket, the smaller right front pocket, left back pocket, right hoodie pocket, front left of belt for small horizontal carry knives (e.g. Izula), left side belt for large knives (kukri etc.) right side belt for medium knives (Mora, Ka-bar etc.), back of belt for either a medium or small knife.

    Not on my person would be bag straps, seat belts, and at one time a table leg.

    Nice videos! Seems pretty cool.

    I've added a Spartan to my EDC. It's clipped to the Swisschamp belt clip

    I usually carry fixed so it goes on my belt covering my right-front pocket.

    Right front pocket unless I'm wearing cargos or carpenter pants. Then my primary drops to the lower right pocket. And a traditional in my back left.

    Like this, but the knife's an Izula. Quite comfortable.

    Right front pocket is where you'll find a knife on me. I will alternate between keychain carry and LFP carry for small SAK or LM. I don't like carrying things in the watch pocket of jeans, where it interferes with digging stuff out of the right pocket, although I've found the fifth pocket on slacks, where it is actually in the main pocket, to be awesome for small things. I don't like sheath carry, on account of my muffin top.
