    need help finding an edc

    I have the perfect (for me) EDC in this knife, except for the fact that it is the cheapest Chinese made rendition imaginable. Can anyone direct me to a high quality version of this? It has a single blade.

    Looks like a riff on a Spyderco Ladybug, with a knockoff Mel Pardue blade shape. If you like the proportions, get the Ladybug. Popular for an EDC, especially in office environs where a little knife is a must.

    Thanks, Guys! Looks like Spyderco has what I'm looking for. I just wish that they had a carbon version!

    That one is too big. The ladybug is the right size for my pocket!

    You must be a cook!

    You're more likely to find an EDC in H1 than in any carbon steel. Pockets are humid and abrasive.

    Carried a CRKT M16-14sf for years. Big and rugged, lightening fast opening. Broke the first 1mm off the tip opening a bluepoint.

    If I were to buy another folder, it would probably be an Extrema Ratio MPC or Fulcrum IID.

    Spyderco, Benchmade and the other major players are bound to have something that will strike your fancy. I would suggest maybe looking at a mini Griptilian. You can get one online with a 154CM blade for about $80 or for closer to $60 if you are okay with 440C. If you like it and want to upgrade it later, Kevin Wllkins makes a replacement handle for it. I would avoid H1 unless you are playing to join UDT. Not a very good steel for taking and holding a fine edge from what I have been told.
