    Well as a local "handyman" I get to play with all my toys
    On the street I carry a Spyderco Endura 4 for general utility
    An Opinel No. 9 for my food prep knife
    I carry and ESEE 3 when I'm on the property, or doing any heavy duty work
    When I'm doing property maintenance I carry an Ontario 18" Mil. Machete and a Polski ax
    In the truck I keep a Fiskars brush hook, an Estwing full sized ax and a Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel (the combo is great for clearing out road obstructions)
    I also keep a Mini-Recon 1 tanto in my jacket for a back up

    You could say I get to play with some knives :p

    Rail road conductor. I carry whatever I feel like on a given day, mostly benchmades or spydercos. I also carry a skeletool cx clipped to my lfp or a charge tti on my belt as well. I have a leatherman raptor attached to the outside of my pack, more because I like it than anything else, and if i ever did need it it would be worth its weight in gold.

    I'm a computer sysadmin and I use my Opinel #8, blackjack 155 necker, and my Case orange peel bone medium congress at work normally. Some days I take my BK14 or Izula II as well, just cause I can.

    I run the Offshore Island department for our county Mosquito control. I'm on a boat most days and hiking through mangrove swamps, as well as keeping all of the boats serviced and maintained.

    My work carry is always a Gerber Suspension multitool on the belt and an ESEE Zancudo in the pocket.

    Managing Partner of a residential BBQ grill cleaning and repair service. We also sell BBQ grills, parts and outdoor kitchens. Most of my knife use is opening and cutting down boxes and for now I EDC my black Paramilitary 2. I'm saving up for a large Sebenza 21 with insingo blade, which will undoubtedly replace my PM2 as my EDC knife. I did EDC my spyderco delica before I got my PM2, but I recently gave it away to a friend who is moving to Hollywood soon to pursue his acting career. Figured he could use some kinda protection in that hell hole :p

    I am an HVAC technician. I use a Klein 4 blade. Every technician should have one. I stuck it in 480 once so now it's a 3 1/2 blade.

    And I'm usually carrying a spyderco tasman salt with that h1 steel while at work because the high vis yellow handle makes it easier to see when I set it down, the blade and hardware will not rust so I don't worry getting my knife wet and the blade shape is great for cutting hoses and cables [​IMG]

    I'm an overnight Flow Team Member at my local Target, I get to use my knives since most of my work involves opening and breaking down boxes. Typically Target disallows using knives for work, but I kind of continued using my knives until they gave up telling me that I couldn't, so they ended up telling me as long as I'm careful with them, which I am, I haven't cut myself at work since I started working there for 2 years. I basically told them that in using tools that I'm most comfortable with, I reduce the risk of personal injury.

    Since I work in the general public, I tend to use smaller, less threatening blades in my daily work. The Kershaw Leek and Skyline, CRKT Ripple, and Benchmade Mini Grip (blue handle, so it looks pretty) are typically what I carry for EDC use, while I do carry my ZT 0560 in one of my lower cargo pockets, since I do walk to work at night, and back in the daytime, you never know what you might need a full sized folding knife for in the 45 minutes it takes to walk one direction. I'll also carry new acquisitions to work, to break in my new toys and show off, I do work with a few knife enthusiasts as well.
