I always carry 2 cutting instruments.  I carry an EEZYCUT trilobite in a harness mount on my BCD strap.  It is very light, and on a black strap it almost disappears.  The knife comes with spare blades, but I rinse and apply a touch of oil after diving and have no rust/corrosion.  http://www.leisurepro.com/p-aquezc/eezycut-trilobite-with-harness-mount

Mounted to my BCD I have a Scuba Pro Mako Titanium.  It is a great little knife!   http://www.leisurepro.com/p-scpkmt/scuba-pro-mako-titanium-knife

My wife carries the same EEZYCUT (in pink), but on her BCD she has an Aqualung Squeeze Lock Titanium with tanto tip.  She loves the light weight and secure locking mechanism of its sheath.  http://www.leisurepro.com/p-sqtkst/aqua-lung-squeeze-lock-titanium-knife-tanto-tip

I have mine on my left leg, I dont know why but I always dive with a knife and try to clean up fishing lines and other things while I dive.

I mount one on my BC and have the other on my left leg (inner calf) I find that easiest for me to be able to reach, or I might sometimes put it on my outer calf on the right leg (the only issue with that is if I needed to get it with my left hand it is a bit of a stretch).

I mount on the power inflater hose. I use a Tekna 4.5". It has one serrated side and a sharp side. It's easy to unsheathed yet never gets in the way.

I always carry a folding knife and seasissors in my BC pocket. If I feel the need to take something more substantial iI'll take a sheath knife strapped inside my right leg.

When I first started diving everyone was strapping big knifes to their leg. Over the years I've moved to a small knife on my BCD inflator hose. My wife dives at an aquarium and had to leave her knife home. So if we needed it we have a very Sharp knife. We always pull the knifes after a trip and remove any rust and coat the blade with lubricant.
