I know most of us probably have more knives than we need, but what are one that keep showing up in pocket?
For me it always seems to be a Kershaw that shows back up. I have a franken-Blur that I just love to death. Originally I got a Blur in 2005 and later got a s60v Blur blem (from Kershawguy) and promptly switched out the s60v blade to my original black handle for a unique knife.
I have plenty of knives and this just seems to be one I'm fond of...good size, good steel, reliable, don't mid beating on it, and I grab it for outdoor adventures over some of my more expensive Spyderco, Benchmade, ect.
The top Blur is the one that follows me around.

I know it is big, but, I just love this knife.
A Mauser labeled victorinox knife. I know i've had this for over 30 years and carried it daily.
Weekdays it's almost always a black SAK Alox, Hard to beat. Weekends, mostly a Spyderco ZDP-189 Dragonfly.

A Kershaw Blur always end up in my back pocket. I normally wear jeans, and for me it is the perfect size. It is also a great knife at a great price point. Not a cheap piece of crap, but not so expensive that i am heart broke should it break or get lost (which hasn't been a problem yet)

I have to agree on the Kershaw Blur.

Really easy to get it stupid sharp, and not too scary around the office - even with a 3 5/8” blade.

Spyderco Native 5 ends up in my pocket a lot. Probably the combination of a very useful blade shape, good steel, and light weight.
I've got some from Buck, Kershaw, Cold Steel, and Emerson, but the little Native finds its way into my pocket quite a bit.

Since the whole Benchmade fiasco, I stopped carrying anything with a butterfly logo, and stepped up my Spyderco/CRK/ZT/WE game. But the perfect knife has been sneaking its way into my pocket, the Benchmade Ares. My first and true love.

Add me to the Blur club. As someone else put it, not cheap, but not so expensive that I'd be heartbroken if something happened to it. And I have lost one, damnit.
My Benchmade Mini Griptillian solidly leads the pack when it comes to getting carried. With an added deep carry clip, it disappears in my pocket.
