  • Knives and Multitools

    How many here carry at least one knife and/or multitool?

    I carry a Spyderco Endura with a partially serrated blade and a Leatherman Wave. I usually carry the Endura clipped to my right front pocket and the Wave in my left back pocket.

    I always carry my Kershaw folding blade. It is super sharp and has a "spring assisted open" (read: barley CA legal switchblade). Its a great knife and made in the USA. I carry it clipped to my back right (strong side) pocket when working unarmed, or on my non-gun side when working armed.

    I also have a huge Swiss Army knife with all the bells and whistles, but it is bulky so it stays in the gear bag.

      Which Kershaw Speedsafe is that?

      I had a Blackout a while back, loved the thing.

        If you don't like the SpeedSafe there is a on/off switch too.

          I have a Buck Tool from Graingers. This little guy is one of the most useful tools on my belt. Before the Buck I brought a couple less expensive utility knives and highly recommend not doing that. On one occasion the blade tried to close while I was using it. Thank god my fingers prevented it from closing. OUCH!! On the first one the handle grip rivets let go and once again my fingers prevented any further harm to the rope I was cutting. Still got all 10 but beware of cheap knives.

            I asked for a knife when cutting a box open one time. It looked like the S&W SWAT series knife. It wasn't. I still have a scar from where the liner lock decided it was tired and disengaged.

              I have a Winchester tool on my duty belt I bought from WalMart. Works well and comes in handy.

                Swisstool multiplier, CRKT M-16 folder, Gerber/Emerson collaboration...

                Depends on how I feel and/or what I grabbed on the way out the door, most of the time I have a folder clipped in the zippered compartment of my right cargo pocker on my duty uniform.

                  I have a Gerber Hinderer, basically a rescue tool, has a O2 wrench, seatbelt/clothing cutter, window punch and a decent serrated blade. As well as a small tool set.

                  It is a great investment!

                  Check out the wrie up on it.

                    What no cup holder ?

                    I have the same blade as Danny and I to let it sit in a duty bag in my car (never use it much but it is there with other gear) but still rely on my Leatherman Supertool for 15 years. I know there are better ones on the market but this one has fixed cars, radios, rescued kids from backyard mishaps and never let me down yet.

                    I have always carried a Swiss Army knife in my pocket for those office repairs including PC issues and faulty equipment that may need a good tighten up. The tweezers have been used to mending glasses with loose screws as well as fix toys for kids who have had an accident.

                      Hmmm... that Gerber Hinderer looks nice, but it looks more like a knife than a multi-tool, thus it could prove difficult to pass our State laws


                      The basic multi-tool I carry on my duty belt is a generic 15-in-1 type gizmo, more than adequate to get the job done

                          Wouldn't that present a potential risk via strangulation... or does it feature a safety/quick release clip in the cordage/lanyard?

                            Nope, it's on the beaded/breakaway chain like dog tags. Plus, with it under the shirt, you gotta know it's there to make a grab for it anyway...

                              I am a huge Knife guy... I love em' so much my wife has banned me from the store and ebay.

                              I almost always have an Emerson CQC-11 I've had it for years and can't believe how sharp it stays. Also with what it costs I'm surprized I haven't lost it yet.

                              In days that I want a smaller knife if have a Kershaw Boa that rides in my right front pocket. Other times its one of a bunch of CRKT models - i have five different m-16's, a lightfoot, kasper, desert cruiser, and a m-18

                              Then there is the standby Benchmades. An Aries and a Pardue.
