I leave it clipped inside my front pocket.

I just used it Sunday to cut some line off a permanent fender. It went through like a hot knife through butter.

$35 to $40, so losing it wouldn't ruin me entire weekend, like most "sailing" knives.

Leatherman knives: c33T/c33Tx

I have one, and it is the sharpest knife I have ever owned, including my ceramic knives. Holds it's edge really long as well, I carry it everywhere I go.
