    Show Your Significant Others Carry

    My gf has different methods of carry, but i caught this peek show in target the other day and got to wondering how others proxys carried.
    Post pics of your girls/guys method, or lack thereof.

    I collect knives, my knives collect dust.

    I try so hard to get her to carry.. She refuses to carry a blade if any kind. I had to throw a Swiss Army knife in her GHB and put it in her trunk myself.

    She carries my Persistence limited edition blue G10 PE. To be fair, it technically isn't mine, as I bought it specifically for her, because her favorite color is blue, and the Persistence is more her size.

    My wife has tried different designs, and for a long time her favorite was the Police Tieclip. But for the past year it has been the pink Squeak, usually clipped to a pocket in her purse.

    I gave my wife a Ladybug a while ago, but I'm pretty sure she never used it once, and it was lost long ago. She'd rather use her fingernails or keys to cut things anyway.

    My wife carries a 79mm Rescue for work. She is in airport security. There are times when she has to clear bag jams in behind the scenes. The serrated blade makes short work of straps that may get caught in the belt system.

    My wife carries a pink Squeak and has a pink Native in the house. When she worked as a Nurse she carried a Miss Army knife, not very high quality, but the screwdriver came in handy for fixing med pumps that tended to back out screws, a mirror, a flashlight and an emergency pen.

    My wife EDC's a Persian (G-10 with 79 mm blade) in her purse and a Persistance in her backpack when hunting.

    G10 DFly, ZDP DFly, and ZDP Stretch. She doesn't really care which of these I have sitting on her desk for her to use but these are what she likes best. For EDC she has a ZDP Ladybug on her keys.

    I brought my girl a blue delica, she uses it a lot around the house but was "too big" for her to whip out in public apparently (yeah I lol'd ), so now she carries a LB/HB salt with a fob in her handbag.

    The wife carried a ZDP delica until she "traded" it for my ZDP Caly 3. She still hasn't "traded" that one back, I think she enjoys it too much. For her uses, it stays sharp forever.

    The wife has my pink Delica in her nightstand for when she needs it, but she didn't really dig any of the Spyderco models I showed her for EDC, so she carries a pink CRKT Ashworth Turtle to work. She also has a pink handled Victorinox Climber in her purse at all times as well.

    My wife had a Ladybug Salt until last week when it was stolen. The keyring it was on was pulled apart and looked like a breast-cancer ribbon. Based on the look of it it's hard to believe that she would have snagged it on something without realizing it.

    She noticed this a day or so after she had made a donation of some used clothing to Goodwill. She gave her keys to an attendant who took them in the back to scan some sort of tag on one of her keyrings. Our guess was that it was swiped there. She went back to Goodwill to speak with the manager. The manager said that he would look at their security tape and contact her back. He has not as of yet and she intends to visit there tomorrow at follow up.

    Sad to hear that, Mike. I hope your wife is able to get the Salt L'Bug back soon!

    My wife carries a SS Cricket SE so her keys can hang on the top of her purse or off of her pocket.
