    A comment on H1.

    The edge retention is decent, but isn't great. You will need to sharpen it more than other knives, however the edge can be razor sharp. H1 is best for corrosive environments. I have a Spyderco Atlantic Salt and the corrosion resistance is amazing. Left it outside in in humid and sunny weather with SW misting everywhere for near a week and it only had a tiny bit of rust where the laser etching was done. It's a known "problem," however the rust wiped off with very little effort.

    Here's an extreme example: Left in a container of chlorine tablets.

    I have a zdp calypso jr, which is an awesome edc, gets razor sharp and lasts. The profile is similar to your pic too

    Thanks, but looking at the Spyderco catalog that one isn't listed, only the 3 and 3.5 inch versions, which are bigger than what I'm after.

    Sorry should have said you'd need to look for a second hand one as they were a sprint run

    Eh. Get a nice knife. You use a kitchen knife maybe once a day (unless you're paid to do more). Your pocket knife is always with you.
    So, old school might be a Hen and Rooster #273 from A.G. Russell. Alternatively, a William Henry button lock with a ZDP blade makes a nice EDC.

    Spyderco Delica ZPD full flat grind at $75? Should have a lot of potential.
    I just ordered one....

    If you looking for carbon there was a sprint run of Cali 2 or 3 with a gomi super blue.
