    Until about 6:00 last night I had a nice spyderco that I have carried for a few years. I have no idea where it went, but I have lost it. I have already counted 6 times today that I wanted use my knife. I think I'll spend the rest of the day looking for it. :sad024:

    Bummer! I hope it turns up. (If it does, of course, it will be when you are looking for something else.)

    I think it's more likely to show up as soon as I get a shipping confirmation on a replacement.

    I usually carry a Gerber gator. The older made in the USA ones.

    For over 50 years, I have always carried two knives on me. Of course, they have changed over the years, but not very often. For over 20 years now, I have carried a Classic, USA made, Buck 110 Folder in a Holster on my belt, and for about the last 4 years, I have carried a Gerber, Bear Gillis Folder in a pocket. I believe they are made in China, but it is a very worth knife. MVC-007S.JPG

    Very good tool. Got my first one back when I had a '68 F-100 that leaked & burned oil. It worked well cutting a pour hole in the top of quart cans to keep the crank case lubed. Traded that well worn one to my brother for a '76 stag handled Case 5265 folding hunter. It was (still is) too pretty to treat rough. Not too long after I got another Buck 110. Don't know what happened to that second Buck, but dad gifted me another 110 couple years ago & I'm still carrying it. The cheap woven nylon holster wore out so it's in a slightly less cheap Gerber holster until that fails.

    I carry a Case Peanut in my pocket because it is small and very sharp.

    I must admit that the past few months the only knife that I have with me is an Opinel #6. Small enough to fit in my pocket, large enough to be useful, and looks perfectly pedestrian and tool like.

    A Swiss Army Knife or a classy Laguiole look very nice, but as a simple tool it's hard to beat the Opinels.

    I carried a Buck Stockman for years until it fell out of my pocket while working on a tractor. I’ve had a Buck model 112 in a belt sheath ever since.

    Well I’m back to a Buck. The Spyderco Lil’Native, I just never got used to it and has been sitting in its box in a drawer for about 2 months, likely will let it go.
    Bought several Bucks in December and have been carrying the 340 ever since.
    The Dec 2018 Buck of the Month and a 112 LT, both waiting patiently for a turn.
