Right now I carry a Kershaw assisted opening knife with a 3" blade. Can't remember the name, but it is a cheaper kershaw about 20 bucks I think. Made in China, but nicely done, and the blade keeps an edge for quite some time even though it is considered so-so steel. The assisted opening is hady, especially when you don't have both hands available, and it closes securely. Nice reptilian type finish on the blade which gives it a secure grip. I have had others I liked as well, but lost them along the way.

My latest EDC is the ZT 0560, it's real nice for a production knife.

On weekdays I carry a Buck Quickfire (I work with vehicles and boxes a fair bit, so assisted opening with a lanyard loop/glass breaker handle? Yes, please) the plastic handle cracked a little bit when I dropped it on concrete (days after i got it !) but this has not affected function nor has it gotten any worse after several months. I'm not worried about it.
On weekends or when I'm traveling light I have a small Buck jackknife my grandfather gave me that disappears into that little "change pocket" you find on most jeans

I just added this one to my EDC rotation. It is a Allen Ellishewitz/ Hogue collaboration called an EX01 and this one has a Chad Nichols damascus blade. So far I'm very impressed with this production knife. Lockup is solid, blade centering is perfect and the action is so smooth and easy.

I like the Spyderco Delica as I'm so use to using their hole in the blade to open the blade nothing else feels as right to me.

Thanks, it's Damascus from Chad Nichols. It's pretty much why I bought the knife, I can't afford a true custom from Ellishewitz.

I have 2 that I carry

I have a little CRKT Delilah's P.E.C.K. Knife that I use (abuse really) for anything that comes up; boxes, tape, plastic ties, scraping, prying, etc. It's a great little knife and I've had it for several years. Got it for $10 at REI years ago.

For the stuff I want more precision for and stuff that's larger to cut like rope I have a silver 3" Kershaw Leek. Stays nice and sharp. I try not to beat it up too much ... but it's a tool and can be fixed/maintained.

I carry an eye brand copperhead that has been with me since I was 19 years old. I have carried this knife for 42 years now and use it for everything. It stays sharp and I don't mistreat it. The old eye brands are really great knives.

Would love to see a picture of it if possible.

I still have two 1st Gen Enduras hangin around, actually 1 of them is in my wife's purse. I carried both in my youth (until I was about 23).

One of the Enduras


Uncle Sam decided to start issuing me those super nice expensive knifes that I guess some wouldn't actually use every day.

My Uncle Sam list includes and I go back and forth between these as my EDC, and I actually use them for everything:

1. Benchmade 140 Nimravus (Attached to thigh rig, only for security forces detail & deep woods camping)


2. Benchmade 9100 Auto Stryker


3. Emerson Commander


4. I also EDC a SOG Powerlock


Oh yeah, that other thing in all those pics is also my EDC!

EDC? A self retracting blade dont laugh, makes a wicked impact weapon.

And the always with me Spyderco Wallet knife in my wallet. Been through more than one metal detector. It sets them off ,they dont bat an eye when sweeping the wallet with the wand.

I used to carry an Emerson Mini CQC-7B but I lost it out in the woods during a field training exercise (let that be a cautionary tale to always secure your gear!). I was a big fan of the rugged use I could put the blade through as well as the wave feature, so I got the Emerson Commander with the half serrated blade.

As far as Emerson being pricey, I completely agree, but you really just need to keep an eye out for a good deal. I bought the Mini CQC-7B for $50 on Ebay, and the Commander used from a fella for $90. I don't think I would have shelled out retail price for either blade but boy am I glad I was able to get them, the Mini was my EDC before I lost it and the Commander's been by my side since.

I've been carrying a sweet little Protech Runt 2 for a couple years now. I tried to use it as a phillips screw driver and broke the tip off. I went to my local gun store and saw a sign "Knife Sharpening" so I gave it a try. The young man behing the counter made it look like new. I'm a happy man again.

I carry the Kershaw Tanto Blur spring assist. Not the most expensive, but a great blade. Image not my specific knife (snaked online) since I have not taken any pics, but loved how it was displayed. After seeing all or your photography skills, I'm going to have to do a special photo shoot with some of my "safe children." So sharp I've taken down a skin callous in paper thin layers. Once tried to get my wife to cut a mole off my back. She wouldn't do it.
