Best EDC knife?

Recommended Posts

I carry a zero tolerance 350 , I lean towards a heavier knife , American made spyderco are great , manix 2, or a paramilitary. Go to bladereviews.com and read about type of steel and the reviews of some edc blades. Benchmades are always a great choice and their axis lock system is great. Heavier knives tend to pull down your pockets unless you're wearing jeans . Good luck with finding a edc. Remember , it's always better to have one than none at all

whatever knife fits in your hand comfortably, and has a blade lock. its most important to make sure the knife is comfortable in your hand while working with it. its my opinion that you do by a quality known name brand.

Very true sir. Don't rely on price but brand and how it fits you. There are some knives out there that are not very expensive but are fantastic blades. My example is the swedish mora. This blade is less than 30 bucks and even way less if you do some looking, especially at gunshows and to be honest I have not found another blade that fits my hand as well or is as razor sharp and keeps an edge as well as this knife. Personally this is one of my favorite knives and sometimes I just can't believe how cheap they are. However, it is not a huge knife and you won't be chopping down any trees or hammering nails with it but honestly the first purpose of a knife is to be a good blade.

Lately Im a flavor of the month guy with EDC blades. Currently in my pocket.....Opinel #7. It does everything I need an edc to do - light duty. envelopes and boxes quiver in fear at the mention of my Opinel #7;) The Opinel is a 2 handed open. Its my opinion that this is perfectly acceptable for EDC. For tactical and defensive purposes, Id chose a knife acordingly - fast one handed deployment, egronomic materials and design features, agressive blade shape and greater size. For EDC, lighter weight, smaller size and comfort in the pocket is what I look for in a knife. So far the Opinel is working out well. Not to mention, the uniqueness of the knife strikes up good conversation.

I carry at least 1, sometimes 3 on me at a time.

 

Always carry either Gerber Paraframe 2 or Kershaw Vapor,

 

Usually also carry Gerber Suspension multi-tool... least expensive & best feeling multi-tool I have tried. Also have a SOG paratool

 

Sometimes also carry Kershaw Vapor 2

 

Car always has a cheapie Hummer rescue knife with punch & belt cutter, also a Gerber Paraframe 1, and a 6" fixed blade tanto... brand escapes my memory.

 

Laptop bag has small Kershaw multi tool with scissors, etc, and a Kershaw Amphibian fixed blade diving/survival knife, plus a cheap throwaway 2" jacknife I got free with my old CRKT daily carry.

Well, I know there are some good knives around and I own a few. However, I have to say the best daily carry is a Parker Cutlery One Arm Pillbuster. Why? I've been carrying the same knife for almost 30 years. It gets the job done and always holds a razor edge!! I'm not sure the knife is made any longer!!

kershaw assisted opening w/ lock back. Small, fast opener, and sharp, with auto lock. One hand flick, it's open ready to rock and roll. Whether it's to cut straps, boxes or.... My second EDC knife would be the Kabar small version of the USMC knife. It is smaller than the full sized version and is a very stout knife for doing almost any thing and it is not to large as to draw attention to me. And it is also wickedly sharp. My Kershaw is only 2 1/2 inches and my Kabar is 6 inch blade. Both are great for what I do and were I live.

I have a couple of knives, but my EDC for the past several years is from Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT). It's an M21 G10 folder, designed by Kit Carson. It's the largest of the locking folders I've found, and the one that locks up the most securely - something that is important to me for self defense work. I had a nice Buck knife close on my fingers once, and it will never happen again if I can help it. The M21 uses a 'flipper' opening system so it is easy and fast to deploy, but its difficult to reclose one handed. The knife is amazingly sturdy, I have driven it thru a sheet of 1/2 inch plywood and then suspended my body weight from it without breaking off the blade or affecting the mechanism in any way.

 

If there are any negatives to the knife, I'd have to say it is larger and heavier than many people want in an EDC (not an issue for my line of work) and that the pocket clip is maybe a little too strong. It will eventually wear out a pair of pants where it clips, unless your pants have a reinforced edge where the clip grips. My tactical pants (by Propper) have such an edge and have not worn out, but several pairs of jeans and shorts have telltale wear in the same place. On the other hand, the knife has never come loose or fallen out of my pocket, not even when I am upside down.

 

My knife is too large for my wife to use comfortably (she is very petite, so the grip is too wide for her). She has an Ignitor (also by CRKT) which has an assisted opening system, a combination blade and a pocket clip. To me, her knife is too small to deploy easily, as I have fairly large hands. She has no issues with her knife at all, and loves it. We both usually carry our knives inside the front pocket of our pants, with the clip on the outside and clearly visible.

 

On a related note, customer service at CRKT is excellent. I have bought several knives from them, and my next purchase (a 'Ripple/aluminum' by Ken Onion) will be from them as well.

 

Here's a link to the knife I carry:

I think I like all the knives just listed. I have been carrying a Kershaw Vapor for several years. Prior to that I carried another Kershaw. I am impressed with their edge and they are thin enough to carry easily. I like to carry a multi tool in addition to my single blade Kershaw. Never instead of. I like most of the well made multi tools I have carried. I don.t like to get carried away with too many gadgets, just what I need.

Melissa,

Those are sharp and have many uses but a box cutter is not a knife in my not so humble opinion. It's main drawback is lack of depth followed by lack of resistance to side loads. Its main strength is, of course, that it is as sharp as a razor blade because, that is what your edge is. I have and use both a large and a small one and I carry them but I don't consider them to be a knife. If nothing else, you might pick up a Swiss Army knife to fill the holes the box cutter doesn't take care of.

 

Oh, I like your quote by the way. That is a good prepper attitude. Always have a solid use for something, even after it fails.

A PINK gun?????? You do know that if you're killed with a PINK gun you can't get into heaven! St. Peter says something like " you were killed by a WHAT???" and laughs you right out of the Pearly Gates!:D

 

I hear your reasoning and while I don't disagree, I just don't generally think of my knife as a defensive weapon - it is a tool with a great many other uses. I've even done some digging with one as well as some rescue work. It is in areas like these that I think a solid knife would out perform the box cutter.
