Does anyone else find it virtually impossible to find the perfect EDC? I've tried about 5 in the past few months, and I keep going back to my Gerber Paraframe for daily stuff and my SAK Treker for work. I kinda feel like steel, etc is a bit less important with an EDC, because of the abuse they take. Or, mine do anyways. The SAK is an incredible tool and I've cut bumpers and dashes off of cars with it, popped open melted cupboards, and picked locks with it (and a haligan). I don 't know if I'd be as likely to do all of this with a $350 knife, with S35VN, or another similar steel.
Kitchen knives are easy (as an owner). I can honestly say I have at least 5 blades I could use every day for the rest of my life, if I had to.
Pulled this pic off the web, but it's the one I have. The original Tomcat, I got when I was still on Active Duty east coast.
Carrying one of my favorite fixed blades today.
a new edc i got recently
svord peasant knife, took 3 months to get here coz of sellers not putting the names on right on their packages.
carbon steel, 60 rc (afaik), friction folder, dirt cheap.
lemme correct myself, the svord is 55-58rc, probably L6 steel according to some forums. so far i like it.
Picked up my first edc recently.
Went with the griptilian, para 2's caught my interest but are damn hard to find.
I think I might pick up a sage 3 for my gal.
Here's the one I nabbed
