I have this little guy every day: the short blade is friendly for gov't labs etc., and takes care of pretty much everything I do on a daily basis.
Spyderco Spin


But the first one I bought was this one, which comes with me in the woods:
Spyderco Endura with SpyderEdge


I like that they're located in Golden.

ULSTER or Remington SCOUT knife. Bone handle, comfortable to carry, well made (USA) quality, has everything you need including a flat blade screw driver and has more character than most.

Everyday carry = classic Swiss Army knife. The aluminum body version is thinner than the plastic body version. Knife is sharp and can cut virtually anything. The scissors get used even more than the knife. The nail file is a pretty decent screwdriver in a pinch.

This knife is so useful that I carry it even when I also have my Spyderco in my pocket. More info

I bought this Gerber several years ago and have taken it on every camping trip since. There's nothing particularly special or great about it but it's what I use. http://www.gerberknivesdirect.com/ar_05849.html

I live on a farm and am a self-employed custom woodworker but I don't normally carry a knife.

On a related note, I was a knife maker's apprentice back in my late teen years to one of the most prolific custom knife maker's in the country . . . but sadly I haven't ground a blade or made a knife from scratch since I worked for him. We made some sweet, sweet knives as well as chit loads of miniatures (sold mainly through Smoky Mountain Knife Works), butterfly knives and damascus blades.

Benchmade Griptilian. I'm a big fan of the axis lock. It's also a really nice 154CM steel that holds an edge really well without being awful to sharpen. One of the more affordable 154CM knives Benchmade makes.

I carry a Gerber F.A.S.T. Draw, full fine edge.



Used to carry the serrated version, but learned very quickly that serrations got in the way more than anything with my typical cutting tasks (cutting cardboard, envelopes, packaging, etc.)

I think I recognize that Sypderco Matt

I've got that but with a bottle opener rather than the scissors
