    I keep a clip-on Winchester on me. Silly girl clothing doesn't always have pockets and belt loops, esp skirts. On my bike I always keep a Buck Hunter 110 in the bar bag and that's what I carry when camping too.

    I carry a Leatherman at all times -- if I'm wearing a dress with no pockets, it's in my purse and at hand. I don't know how it compares with other multi-tools, but it was given to me as a Christmas present, and the most useful present I've ever had, I think.

    hmmm, perhaps I should take up carrying a purse when I don't have pockets... ;)

    I use a pocket knife my grandpa gave me, I don't know what brand, as it was probably worn away long before I was born. I believe he got it from his grandfather or his father, one of them. And this thing still works, just as if I just bought it.

    My Leatherman tool/knife...someone gave it to me when I was doing pest control :) It reminds me of a Swiss Army knife--got everything but the kitchen sink on it!

    I carry a two-bladed Case that my dad gave me. I also have a Bear Jaws multi-tool that was given to me as well. The Bear Jaws is pretty good, but I prefer the large Gerber multi-tool.

    A lot of different pocketknives have come and gone for me over the years, but the one that I always go back to and currently carry is a rigging knife that I got as a teenager.

    For those folks who have never been near a boat, a rigging knife has a sheepsfoot blade and a locking, folding marlinspike.

    Leatherman wave, and an old schrade sharpfinger when I'm doing something that merits a dedicated knife. I've had Gerber and other multitools. They don't measure up. But then I guess you aren't really supposed to use them to cut barb wire or as a hammer in a pinch... :) The sharpfinger is the best little sheath knife I've ever owned. Too bad Schrade went out of business.

    I carry a Leatherman in my purse almost all the time when I'm not home. I just take it and my cell phone out when I have to go into a courthouse or visit a prison.

    It's in my pocket when walking in the woods or camping.
