What pocket knife do you carry?

I remember the original leatherman. I had a Gerber multi tool because the knife blades locked. If I remember correctly the original leatherman didn't have locking blades. My wife bought me the leatherman Charge titanium for my birthday a few years ago and I love it.
You are korreck. It does not lock. It will hurt you! It's hurt me even when I wasn't trying to elektrocute myself!

I once almost cut half my finger off doing some odd stuff with a non-locking blade.

Once.

Just fixed and locking blades for me ever since. Due to my membership in the abovementioned club, the finger is fine.

I carry knives with non locking blades now because I've lived in the UK since 2004, locking blade folding knives aren't legal to carry unless you have a valid reason.
That was a real culture shock, I used to rock a multi tool and a 8 inch fixed blade hanging from my belt when I still lived in Canada.

A simple mini victorinox Swiss Army knife. Just enough for day to day
I always carried those back in my days. Amazing how often those little scissors came in handy.
Just my little Texas Toothpick.

Man, that reminds me of my Dad's knives! He must have loved sharpening them, cuz he'd turn them into ones that look just like that!

That knife right there sure looks like what I'd call a "Toad Sticker" tho I never did stick a Toad!

Even a guy like me could do some real fine work whittling with that.
