I do keep a Gerber multitool in my car; I find a Spyderco Delica 4, more convenient and useful for pocket carry (after removing the pocket clip). Medium Tex recommended it to me several years ago.
Wow, US$78. Beautiful knife, though.

You guys are hilarious.

I have no idea what the ladybug is, as I actually pilfered that pic off Google. (I'm a pirate... arr!) I do have the exact same swiss army knife though.

People at work are endlessly fascinated by it when I use it to open up a cardboard box or cut open a package.

I just love the quality and precision of these swiss army knives. I like the functionality and designs of some other brands too, but the insane quality of the swiss is what keeps me coming back.

I have a Leatherman that I got at Fort Benning back in 2006. I had it on me every day in the military, but now I mostly use it for opening cans & boxes, and I use the screwdriver to assemble furniture and stuff every once in a while when I lived in an apartment and thus didn't have any other tools.

The Swiss Army Knives are really cool. I got my first as a kid from my Dad and replaced it as a young adult. Lost that replacement 15 years ago, and then I learned that it’s technically illegal to carry a knife on the street where I live. Even a small one. ( I still carry a tiny one once in a while on short trips to stick it to the Man. shh! )

Because of someone on this forum — what was his name? Coffee? — I got into Morakniv knives from Sweden. I love the serrated “Rope” model for cutting cardboard. Far more satisfying than a utility razor blade, although I still use those to score heavy cardboard before doing the real cut. They’re inexpensive, perform well, and have comfortable grips.

I carry a Spyderco Delica Clipit clipped onto my right pocket. If I'm in the mood for more weight, a Benchmade automatic knife (switchblades legal in TX).

I can always get to my data... it's in Google Drive.

I used to carry one of those mini swiss army knives on my keychain. Super useful, but unfortunately I've lost all but one of them to the TSA because I keep forgetting to take it off before traveling. So the last one sits in a drawer.

I'm a big fan of keeping tools handy though! Thanks to how insane the world of packaging is, I find that a good set of pliers and a box cutter are essential kitchen tools. I also keep my father's old full-size swiss army knife in my office desk drawer - carefully out of sight of the "housewives of Orange County" types in my dept because I'm sure they wouldn't approve. Use it all the time.
Somewhere here in town is a store where they sell stuff confiscated at airports, I think statewide. My dad went there and picked up literally bagfuls of basic Swiss Army knives for dirt cheap. When I lose one (to the TSA or otherwise) I just get another out of the bag. Feels kind of dirty being the ones to ultimately profit off of people who have their knives confiscated by the government. Still, a great deal on pocket knives.

TSA are the ones profiting.

Ocho, I hope you back up that data. Or make use of Google Takeout.

I've been debating for the past week about upgrading from my current SwissChamp to something even beefier. It was my debating about it that got me starting this thread, now that I think about it. This is the S54 Tool Chest. It's a real hefty hunk of tool.

https://www.amazon.ca/Victorinox-Swiss- ... 744&sr=8-1

It's got the adjustable pliers, wrench, compass, and locking blade. However it's thicker, heavier, and doesn't have the pen.

At least it's better than debating whether I have too much or too little in stocks. ::)

That’s huge! Maybe you just need a tool belt. O0
