What Knife Do You Carry?

Before the Gerber Legend I had a Leatherman Super-Tool, but lost it in the arctic, only to find it a year later on a subsequent trip. It had rusted and I no longer use it. And before the Zippo, I used to carry pocket Schrades, Bucks and a Kershaw (not all at the same time). I also lost the Kershaw in the arctic.
For hunting I used to carry a Buck Woodsman 102, but gave it to my son. I then purchased a Buck 118 and had used it for about 10 years. Just last fall I purchased a Knives of Alaska combo set of Jaeger/Cub Bear caping knife.

Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.

Hunting I carry a gift from one of my son's made by Cold Steel 4" drop point and sometimes I carry a another gift from a friend that's the same size and has a gut hook and I think it was a special order and awesome. I'd hate too lose either one.
During the work week, I'm sometimes in the court house downtown and have to go thru the security to enter it so carrying a knife would be a royal pain in the butt to explain.
I don't like carrying stuff in my pockets and I dump my spare change in a draw so a KNIFE that's not needed is just added weight to carry.

I've got a few knives that get carried regularly.
Bladetech Mouse Lite - Aus 8 Blade. Very thick superbly jimped flat ground blade (.125") This is a lock back design with a Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon(FRN) Handle. Very very sharp!
Bladetech Ganyana Lite - Aus 8 Blade. Very thick superbly jimped flat ground blade (.125") This is an open back liner-lock design with a FRN Handle. Because it's open backed it's a breeze to clean. A bigger knife but still small enough for everyday carry. Doubles as a hunting knife for me. Also very very sharp!
Spyderco Native III - VG10 Blade. Thumb ramp jimping only. Leaf shaped hollow Ground Blade. Lock Back design with Boye Detent. FRN handle. I can shave letters off paper with this knife.
Spyderco Dragonfly Stainless - VG10 Blade. Leaf shaped flat Ground blade. Stainless Handle. Also shaves print off paper. Mostly carry this one as a neck knife.
I've got a few hunting knives too, I'll post about them later.

Your real name by any chance wouldn't be......McGUIVER? Would it?
Like you, when I got my first multi-tool (I didn't buy it, it was provided by my worksite), I figured it was one of those knives I'd seen when I was in Boy Scouts years ago. Way too many gidgets and gadgets to be practical and far too big to carry on your person. But after carrying it for a while, I found out how useful it truly was and now rarely go anywhere without it packed on my belt at my side.

My favorite skinning and boning blade is a Gerber straight blade my son bought me a long time ago. It holds a fine edge and with the rubberized handle it's easy to hold in the hand on a messy field dress or boning job. Easy to sharpen.
