On the weekends I carry a Becker Necker or Esee HEST plus a folder.
During the week at work I only carry a folder, usually my spyderco endura with zdp 189 blade. At work I will cycle in as my edc; military, mini-cyclone, buck (can't remember model)or crkt m1.
In edition each of my key rings has a small folder on it.
Work keys - sak officers model
car keys - small gerber
truck keys - mini buck
jeep keys - small gerber

Car emergency kit - original dumpster mutt and cold steel trail hawk
Truck emergency kit - regulator TT and fiskar hatchet

I don't own any Bussekin steel other then from the yard.
Two kids in university so expensive steel is a no go
And I love what the yard does

My EDC at work is a HRLM concealed under a untucked shirt.When I feel a need to have a tucked in shirt I generally carry a CRKT M16-14D. Outside of work it is usually a Benchmade Autospike or a cheap CRKT M16-13Z to supplement the Pistol. When I'm feeling froggy I may add a Bud Nealy Kinzhal.The HRLM has been a usefull tool at work and gives me confidence when working out in public, but still get some looks when I need to pull it out. Considering getting a trimmer Bussekin under 4 inches. Would like a Vex or HCLE, or better yet Dan needs to make us a good user rendition of a SAR3.

Strong preference for fixed. I do carry a folder too though, but usually because I can find better blade geometry in folder than small fixed.

Interesting that the votes are split about 50/50.

There seems to be a general sentiment among those who don't carry fixed blades...they would if they could.

I edc a folder every day. A ZT 200 that has proven to be strong. There are some VERY strong folders out there if you know where to look.

If I could EDC a fixed blade I would. My understanding is that fixed blades of any size must be unconcealed in the Commonwealth of Virginia, neighboring DC, and Maryland. A belt knife just doesn't go with office attire if I want to stay out of management's office.

The swamp warden with my new azwelke sheath would be first on my EDC list. I work in an environment where my 3" Spyderco Centofante (Wharncliffe blade) has people question me.

I've been EDC'ing an S5LE for about a year now, and am very happy with it. Yes, it's uncomfortable when I sit at my desk sometimes. Yes, it freaks some of my co-workers out. No, I wouldn't go back to a folder for primary chores.

When I'm playing contractor on the evenings and weekends, I carry and use extensively either a Busse Tank Buster or the Dan's recently released Regulator. Both make fine prying/chopping/cutting tools that I use constantly. And I've NEVER had a client complain about my big fixed blades, perhaps since they are so clearly being used as 'tools' in the sense of any screwdriver or hammer.

In addition to those two, I also EDC a SuperKnife (little folding utility knife) and a Leatherman. I use the crap out of the superknife, probably more than anything else, and really like them. They wear out soon enough, but they're also cheap enough to toss and replace. The leatherman is great for the little pliers and screwdrivers. Never replace the 'real' pliers and screwdrivers, but nice to have when the real stuff is back in the truck. I bought mine at Costco, so it's also at the price point that when it wears out or breaks, it won't be a crisis to toss and replace.

Jrod - sweet!

A coworker of mine recently saw me pull out my Swamp Warden (worn necker style under a dress shirt and tie or in a small kydex for pocket carry) to cut up an apple and thought it was "cool". That particular day I was pocket carrying the SW.

The situation might have been different had I pulled it out from under my shirt <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" /> . People are too conditioned. They all seem to think that normal people are abnormal if they want to belt-wear a decent sized fixed blade (like a S5 or RMD) to the office!

HD's Facebook experience is proof positive that sheeple are afraid of the sheep dogs.

I was actually told by a middle-management type that carrying the S5 at work could be "limiting my career-advancement potential". Being in the happy place where my little contracting business could actually support me if it had to, I told him "Gee, I thought it was talking a lot of smack about lousy management that was limiting my career advancement potential"...

He hasn't talked to me again!
