I carried a mini spyderco around with me for many years before I manned up to a Buck Crosslock. I think I'll wear it in on my next dry pair.

It's funny when you find someone else who carries a knife on them. Almost rare these days.

I carry a Microtech Halo 3 (even though it's a bit bigger) I used to carry a Microtech Mini Socom Elite, but it's getting long in the tooth and somehow opened a bit and sliced a small cut into the top of the back pocket of a pair of R&Bs so I don't carry that one anymore

Damn, a Halo 3? Fancy. What made you decide on it? I think I'm a bit old fashioned when it comes to auto knives. I remember back in the early 90s when spyderco came out and because the king in quick release knives. Then I grew to like the feel of the grip on the crosslock and its simple nature. The last quick-release knife I bought was a camillus lev-r-lock after seeing it at knife shows for ages and getting a deal through smokey mountain for it. (Speaking of which, I miss the way the Pasadena knife show used to be...) Autos just seem borderline switchblade to me. Fun, but switchblade fun.

I played with a bunch of different knives and I guess I just liked the Halo 3 the most. I like the feel of the Socom series, but I think build quality is an issue. The Halo feels bulletproof to me.

"Fresh breath" Altoids come in square tins. Altoids Sours come in round tins. The OP gave no indication that he wanted particularly sour breath, only that he wanted an outline.

My first post was tongue-in-cheek. I really don't care if people contrive fake snuff rings, any more than I care if they carefully cultivate ongoing three-day stubble, dye their temples prematurely gray, or wear non-corrective glasses. The whole notion of deliberately cultivating wear on one's jeans is silly at some level, but I still do it myself. It's a style discussion board, and there's going to be some pointing and laughing all around at each other's eccentricities.

As any SF member knows, one can tell a lot about a man's aspirations and insecurities by the style he affects. For instance, picking up outlandishly priced facsimiles of "humble workman's wear" and torturing said facsimiles until they look as much as possible like "humble workman's wear."

Haha. That line was extremely popular in my sixth-grade English class. I'd forgotten about it until your post reminded me.

Anyway, I carry/obsessively use a small tin of Burt's Bees in my coin pocket and it creates a circular wear pattern. Hopefully I don't appear to be a contrived miniature-snuff user to anyone. I also carry a Spyderco knife, coincidentally.

Um, the knife makes me tough, though, right? Right?

I actually avoid putting stuff in my left back pocket, as I think it looks weird. I carry my wallet in the right back, and my cell in the coin pocket.

I've started carrying a caribiner in my right back. wallet has always been in the left back. cellphone in front left.
post #27 of 32
lets see. wallet in rear right, keys in rear left. cellphone in front left. i must say that having my cellphone in the front really messes up the whiskers and other wear marks, and you get this odd fading and lines around it. im not too sure if i like or dislike it at the moment. i used to keep a zippo in the coin/watch pocket, but i took it out to keep coins in.

Why don't you swap your phone with your keys? Your phone is probably about the same size and shape as your wallet and so it'll balance out what you're sitting on -- which is better for your posture.

I'm not sure the fact that they stayed in your pocket so long they caused fade patterns on your jeans is something to about.
