I just carry this
every day, a Spyderco Tenacious Black G-10. I'm not a big knife guy, though I do love throwing knives; haven't been able to play with them since I don't have a target nowadays.
The city of Seattle has absurdly restrictive knife carrying laws. I wanted something I could carry anywhere around the state, so no fixed blade (even a 1" fixed blade is illegal to carry in Seattle) and 3.5" max blade length on a folder. To be honest, I don't want to spend good money on a knife if I can't have more my own choice of what to carry. I love how you can get a permit to carry a Smith & Wesson .500 Magnum that would blow Arnold Schwarzenegger in half all around Seattle, but a 1" fixed blade on a key chain is illegal.
Dumb, dumb, dumb.
