How many of y’all carry a pocket knife around daily?

I used to carry a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife. It has multiple tools on it. Came in real handy for cutting tubing at the hospital. It has one blade of about 3 inches. Also has a handy leather punch that I use to add holes to my belt as I lose weight.

As a youngling growing up in the country, I tended to carry a pocketknife all the time. Less so when I moved to the city and NEVER at this point. I am deaf with a cochlear implant and while we could sit somewhere quiet and converse, I have trouble hearing in noisy environments. Given that I have to go explain to however is tending whatever kind of scanner for whatever security that I have a medical device, I think having even a little knife might cause greater confusion.

Deaf people get messed with a LOT and I don't want to give anyone a reason to bug me.

My grandfather is the reason I play guitars. He was a mechanic and a tool maker, could fix anything and could fashion a part or tool from scrap metal. He kept a 52’ Tele in his shed, mucked up by grease (his hands were permanently greased). Anyway he gave me his Swiss Army knife when I was a kid, I carried it for decades then TSA took it from me. Still upsets me, I almost ran from the gate I was that unhappy with them, but I had a 11 month baby with me. Quit carrying after that but I do keep a 16” kukri in my backpack.

My Benchmade is always in my purse. I don't use it often, but when I need it, nothing else will do. I carry a flashlight too, which also comes in handy on occasion.
Have the Mini Gripitlian in black. What I love about these, is clipped in your pocket you just grab and its opened. Also love the one handed blade closing. Carried a small Swiss army for many years

Mine's tiny and sometimes gets lost in my change, but it's useful.
It's a C.R.K.T "Delilah's P.E.C.K" and only about 1 3/4" long when folded.
Decent for opening boxes, etc.
