Custom Emerson CQC-6 for verp special occasions. Never leave home without a Perrin LaGriffe around my neck or in a IWB kydex sheath. I also tend to alternate between a Production line Emerson Comander a Spyderco Civilian and a Gunting for pocket carry... But I have to add I love knives even more than shoes and close to 100 custom and production knives. For any other knife nuts out there, check out www.bladeforums.com

I used to carry a small Victorinox (black) (with knife, scissors, toothpic, and tweezers). Those days are gone. I travel a lot, and I can't risk having such a 1.5" dangerous article in my pocket. My wife still carries her Victorinox swiss card on her handbag. I just find pocketknives to be very usefull in everyday life. Too bad the tyranic Transportation Security Agency doesn't let us carry them. (for someone who travels most of his workdays... it feels like airports and their security govern your life).

As a UK Police Officer I find it very interesting that such knives can be carried legally in the US. The law here is complicated, but basically every knife carried in public is automatically illegal, unless it is part of a national costume, is specifically connected and being currently used in connection with a legal trade/job. For everyone else the law allows us to carry a folding pocket knife with a blade measuring less than 7.62 cm/3 inches in length, but even then if intent can be shown all of the mentioned examples become illegal. Most people here take the easy option and do not bother.

I have two lovely sword canes, but the blades are considerably longer than 3" and therefore are considered concealed weapons. With no license to carry, I am stuck with a small Swiss Army knife -- plastic for everyday and sterling sliver for evening. They are very useful. Secretly, I long for a sword umbrella a la John Steed. As a former sabre fencer, I would feel very well equipped. Besides, it would go with my bowler.

Don't try to bring them to the UK, they do not look as good when I am showing them to the Magistrate with a label attached.

they used to manufacture (I think between the world wars) a lot of cane swords in Bulgaria, and in the flea markets of Sophia you can find really beutiful cane sowrds, not the crap sold today but designed to be a primary defensive weapon for gentlemen. that said, I wouldn't suggest carrying one, if nothing else you would stand out like a sore thumb.
