Wow! This is supposed to be a friendly place! Would be cheaper to have a serious Off Track Betting addiction then to get hooked on that stuff! Beautiful!

+1 for the ZT0900. 2.75" blade, great flipper. May look thicker than you want but sits well in your pocket. Wish they would make it with a carbon fiber or G10 scale to lighten (although 4.3oz isn't to bad).

The Emerson Combat Karambit has a 2.65" blade... just sayin' Smile

My wife gave me a William Henry knife - it doesn't go to the office. It is like a "BBQ Gun", it comes out for parties, to be shown off and seen, not for real use. So far, mine had cut ribbons on christmas presents...

It is the real deal though - wave damascus with ZDP-189 core, and very sharp.

Back in the day, retired now, I traveled around the country inspecting construction sites foran AE firm. As it involved meeting with owners, as well as onsite with contractors, at hospitals, schools, museums, universities, MOBs, occasional bank, some federal projects, etc. the climate varied. I carried a Swiss army knife. Never seemed to cause an issue, and has a blade, as well as screwdrivers. The toothpick and tweezers were probably the most used tools though. Some clients were very sensitive, and an occasional metal detector were encountered. Lock blades of any type was a no at many places.

I have a vote for the ZT model ZT0450CF. very light weigh, just a overall great knife.

There are many scales or framelocks with carbon fibre or titanium surfaces which are smooth enough to not damage dress pants. Have to be careful about how tight the clip is so that it doesn't damage the stitching or edge of the pocket.

I carry a Benchmade Impel auto. Right at 2" blade, super light, thin and dressy enough it's never gotten a single comment about being "tactical" even when firing it open. I don't use a clip and it's comfortable in shorts, slacks and of course jeans.
The Reeves Mnandi has been on my radar for a while as an upgrade.

Victorinox Rambler.
- key ring
- toothpick
- tweezers
- blade, small
- bottle opener
- Phillips screwdriver 0 / 1, magnetic
- wire stripper
- nail file
- screwdriver 2.5 mm
- scissors

Everything you need plus its small. Carry one on me all the time. Doesn't bother coworkers when I use it to open letters.
