I recently started carrying a Kershaw Blur again. I love this knife, but it just sticks up and out a little too much, when clipped to my pocket (Tip up). I've been considering carrying it unclipped, to the "Fifth Pocket" in my jeans. It doesn't feel uncomfortable, and I like that it's a little more discreet. Does anyone else carry their EDC knife this way?

I used to carry a Leatherman SuperTool like that, but no longer.

I've carried my Spyderco Ladybug there on occasion. There's a lanyard on it to make it easier to take out of the pocket. The pocket in my jeans is so small that anything bigger wouldn't fit, or at least stick out too much to be comfortable for me when sitting.

I have a Spyderco Dragonfly II (absolutely LOVE this knife) that I will carry sometimes in my coin pocket. It fits perfectly and is easy to get to. Some of my bigger knives could fit into the coin pocket, but every time I sit or bend at the waist I run the chance of the bigger ones being pushed out and losing them. It isn't worth losing a good knife to carry in the coin pocket for me. So, only a smaller knife works for me in this regard.

I've done it from time to time but haven't found anything I really like in that pocket until this week. I picked up a Graham GMT Stubby Razel and it fits very nicely in the 5th pocket of my jeans and khakis. Its unique clip is also very subtle.
It's the one on the bottom. If anyone can carry a Spyderco PM2 in the 5th pocket all day I'd like to see it! The knife clipped in the main pocket is a Zero Tolerance 0808 with a factory low ride clip installed.
