Which pocket?

Which pocket do you carry your pocket knife in, and why?

I have carried a knife for longer than I have CC. Got used to carrying my knife in my strong side (left for me) front pocket.

Strong side in a mid thigh pocket. If I stand with my arm straight at my side my hand will rest on it.

Strong side, rear, because it's easy to deploy and it doesn't interfere with a gun or phone.

Always strong side ...in watch pocket of jeans or waste band in dress pants or khakis. Never in strong side pants pocket ... that's where I carry my strip loader for J-frame. Everything else goes "weak side" or left for me.

Two auto blades. One on each side accessible to each hand.

The main one is in my right front pocket for my dominant hand.

I wear a gray jean vest with one knife towards the front of each inside pocket. Admittedly, the Ruger Compact has been honed to cut meat, of all kinds.

I like the Kizer for the dominant knife, but I think I'm going to replace it with an Emerson-Protech. It's getting to be an ugly world.

Strong side, usually a flipper, and i’m Pretty good at getting it out of my pocket and flipping it open. Better actually if I dont think about it. Just got a good deal on a ZT0801 in Elmax, so will be ‘tuning’ that up today.
