What pocket knife do you carry?

My Gerber Swagger is my favourite. It's been through a lot with me. The only thing that makes me think once in a while is the serration. It makes the blade a pain to sharpen (not sharpening the serrations, but they get in the way when sharpening the rest), but it's really handy to have there when I need it!
 
I’ve carried the same Benchmade 705 that I bought when I was 15 years old... which is about 22 years ago. Dang, time sure moves on.
 
This week the Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight.

How are you liking SPY27?

I've been revisiting the Massdrop Spyderco Endura (SG2) but sadly, the steel still doesn't knock my socks off. Great knife though and not a bad steel in any way, just not as impressive as the hype on the forums made it out to be.

Just fine, but I don't put heavy use on a knife. I love the light weight of this knife.

I have the "plain vanilla" BD1N Para 3 LW, I love the *idea* of a lighter, cheaper Para 3 with a wire clip, but the reality is that I still prefer the G10 handled version, despite having to swap the clip out for an aftermarket deep carry clip to make it feel right in my pocket.
 
Really? I have one too; heaviest, toughest D2 folder ever. The word "beast" does apply.

Usually a winter carry for me (jacket).

Yes, the Adamas aka the folding fixed blade. I do carry it periodically. If I’m going into the woods I like to have that as the extra heft makes it pretty useful. The other two carry knives are a bit more refined and delicate in comparison. Plus I have some pretty crazy edges on the 940 and PM2.

Since posting this, I have been tempted to add one of my spyderco Manix options to the rotation.

I am pretty fortunate to have a good stockpile of NIB benchmade and spyderco knives from my old job at a range where we got very deep discounts on these items. Eventually I will trade/sell some off.
