Do any of you carry weapons with you for self defense? Knives, sticks, etc? A knife or a gun can be deadly even in untrained hands, but many blunt weapons are only truly effective by those who carry them and have studied with them. How do you guys feel about this? Are your hands deadly enough as is?

Back in the day, I used to carry a blackjack at times. A couple guys I knew carried straight razors. Back then (~10-12 years ago), things were a little crazy. There were a lot of nazi skins in the area, and we used to get into it with them pretty often. Nowadays I carry a small folding kerambit, but mostly as a utility knife; I don't usually have it where it's easily accessible.

Speaking of knives, whats the deal with switch blades? They are illegal, but I dont see the advantage that they present... there are plenty of knives that you flick open... and its almost the same. Am I wrong?

No, but in my car I do carry a utility knife for cutting things such as my seat belt if the buckle jams and tools for hammering something back into shape. I also have a punch just in case I need to break one of my windows in case of an emergency. I keep a big maglite just in case my car breaks down and I need to repair something or walk to a gas station. I also carry some sporting goods for my kids ball games and some padded training items for my hobby.
On my person I carry a Swiss Army knife and an umbrella if there's the remote chance for rain.
But weapons? No.

No, I do not carry weapons. Not out of the belief that my hands are deadly enough, or that my skills are to the point that I do not need to, I just don't bother with the hassle. Adding something to my keys, just makes carrying my keys uncomfortable in my pocket. If anything, the keys can be a weapon in their own right.
I do carry a multitude of tools in my truck for emergency situations, much like Rogue, which can be used as weapons given a situation, but I do not carry a specific weapon (unless you count my super deadly Old Timer pocket knife LoL!).

I beleive as well, that hand are deadly enough, but here in my country, when you get into a fight, you fight with not one but many guys.
So i carry an extendable BATON just in case i face more than 1 guy.
