White. I am a development project manager at a digital publishing aggregator. I supervise application development and requirements engineering for proprietary applications we use internally.

Pretty much the opposite of knifemaking.

White collar here. Office/IT manager. I've switched back and forth in my career but mainly white collar. Since I got out of the Navy I've been mainly working with computers in almost every aspect except Data Bases which are for really crazy people like subriders in the Navy.

I do have to agree that one of the reasons I like knifemaking is that you have a finished product in front of you when you are done. You have actually made something.

I was a CTO for COMSECONDFLT. Not much at see time and no duties during GQ as we were mission critical and couln't leave our space. I did get to do the DC/Firefighting school in Norfolk which was a blast. Wish I would have stayed in now but at the time my ex-wife was making me choose the Navy or her. But all things being the same my life has turned out well and I wouldn't have met the greatest woman in the world.

I am now white collar. Started out in the foundry though. We bang hot metal but it really gets hot when you melt it!! Then went to engineering school and wound up in the construction industry. Too much pressure as a contractor so I scaled back and now am a salesman for a door and lock company. It is somewhat of a technical field as doors and locks have really gone high tech with electrinics. I carry a small Old Timer 3 blade.

Brown collar here.

I'm an archaeologist for the Tennessee Department of Transportation, which means I sit at a desk most of the time, but also travel the roads of 25 counties to make sure we don't bulldoze something we shouldn't...

I always have a Swiss Army knife on my belt no matter what, sometimes an old Boker penknife in one pocket, and when in the field I have a 26" machete to clear brush with that rides behind the seat of the truck.

I guess I'm white collar, officially, though I never wear one. I'm a wildlife biologist. I carry a Swiss Buck in my pocket, a Leatherman at my belt, and there is a 4 inch drop point in my desk drawer (a little big to carry around full time). I plan to make a small EDC for myself one of these days. . .

Blue collor guy and steel and oil has been my bread and butter, except for 10 seasons commercial fishing in Alaska. My Gerber multi tool is a part of my daily wear.
