    Its a tiny slim folder with a blade all of about in inch long in the shape of a key. It was my grandfathers so as much a keepsake as a tool.

    You did forget butterfly knives though, unless you'd consider them a tac folder.

    after 5 stitches across my fingertips, I'm always happy to exclude butterfly knives going forward.

    not really, I just assumed most people wouldn't be carrying them since they are illegal in many jurisdictions and not very practical everywhere :-) I do occasionally carry a Spyderco Spyderfly, but only when I want to impress people, it's actually a pain in the ass to use on a daily basis.

    I always have my Gerber Clutch mini-multi-tool on my keyring, and I almost always have my automatic MOD Ladyhawk on me. Here's a link to it: http://www.arizonagunrunners.com/Pro.../ladyhawk.html

    Today I have my Buck Crosslock (one smooth blade and one serrated on opposite sides.) This is my "outdoor" knife. Most days I carry an Opinel wooden handled knife for rope work or woodcarving. This is a single blade locker that is wonderful to use.

    I guess I am a bit of a snob when it comes to knives: The three bladed knife is a Moore Maker stockman with a leather punch. it's 4 inches long when closed! the larger knife is a two bladed jumbo trapper which is also a Moore Maker. I carry this one on my belt.
    The last one is a Case/Tony Bose collaberation. it is a Muskrat and this is the knife that I most often carry! I have others but that might take up this whole thread!

    Do you often need a leather punch?

    I suspect you are having a little fun but I am not quite catching on, so let me answer it straight. I don't need it that often but when I do need it nothing else will do! you can make perfectly circular holes in just about any material that you can get the tip of the punch into!

    No, no inuendos here. You just don't often hear of someone needing a leather punch that isn't in some sort of leather trade.
