What is your EDC knife?

FanOfFanboysFanOfFanboys Posts: 2,047
What knife do you EDC? What do you and don't you like about it? What EDC, if any, are you lusting after?

If you do not EDC a knife where do you buy your purse from?:-)

    Spyderco Paramilitary 2 - its light, sharp and well made with a good combination of size and balance. Highly recommend.

    I have a Wenger Swiss Army Knife that I keep on my keychain. Does everything I have any need for it to do.

    Open mail
    Open bottles
    Clean a whole beef tenderloin
    Get splinters out
    Peel fruit
    sharpen pencils
    etc.

    That is an extremely popular knife. I want to own one eventually just because it seems like a knife everyone should own at least once.

    Those are terrible for opening the mail and slicing food. But they make a good subsitute when holding a hostage!

    I get everything in your list but cleaning the beef tenderloin. You have done that with a swiss army knife? Isnt the blade like one inch?

    It's 2 inches. I was at ski patrol and one of my buddies brought up a whole tenderloin. We only had plastic kitchen knives in our duty station so I whipped that thing out and trimmed off the silverskin with that. It went surprisingly well, albeit a little messy with only the knife and 2 paper plates.

    I would not do it a second time with more appropriate implements available.

    That is a solid knife for the price. How long have you carried it?

    Here are mine...

    The top Benchmade is just about 80% of the time with the bottom one filling out the rest. The top one is almost 20yrs old and the bottom is prob about the 12-15yrs old.
    The Gerber is only for "special occasions" , I've had that for over 25yrs now.

    All three are just as functional as new, just a little worn from healthy use...

    It's #765/100 of the first production run of the model... I think it is a 910STSB? It's not an auto version

    Gotcha. So it is manual or assisted version of that knife it looks like then. My buddy has the 9100 and loves it.

    I used to carry the Buck 525 Gent. Got when I was 15 and carried for about 12 years. Got drunk while fishing one day, decided to jump in lake. Did not empty pockets. It is now at the bottom of lake murray. It looked like this.

    I spent a couple years lusting after a Chris Reeve Sebenza 21. After going about a year without an EDC, and much rationalizing why it is a good buy, I order one direct from CRK. Took a few months but it finally arrived. It has been my EDC since Feb. More I use and handle more I love.
