    Default What knife do you EDC?

    I just picked up three benchmades:

    1) Benchmade 635BK-503 Mini-Skirmish
    2) Benchmade 960 (Red)
    3) Benchmade 940DM

    But I think I will EDC the 960. Thankfully, Canada's knife laws are a bit forgiving. Basically two rules: NO AUTOS, NO BALI-SONGS.

    What are you guys carrying?

    I EDC 2 BM Griptilians. Both full size, one Ritter in s30V, and one combo edge. I also usually have a HAK around my neck.

    and around the house only, Microtech(s): QD Scarab, UTX-70, HALO III Tanto

    Other edged tools are SQs. . .

    The current top of the rotation includes: BM710DS, Strider SnG, Large Sebenza, and stainless Leek.

    Have a titanium leek, but its going to remain virginous for a while. Top of the wish list is BM 610 Rukus.

    Honorable mention, which gets occasional carry: Manix, Mini-Manix (though I find the edge on the Manixes so thin that it chips easily), and well-worn Delica 3.

    Usually carry a SAK in addition to the foregoing.


    Top to bottom: Delica 3, Strider SnG, Nacci-modded Strider AR.


    Spiderco Spin, Delica 3, Centofante 4, and Endura 3.


    Tanto Griptilian and Mini-Manix.


    Various Spyderco Rescues.

    peace

    Current EDC's:

    Spyderco Military CE 440V in my watch pocket (Yes, it does stick out a little and is quite visible but no one around here recognise it as a knife )

    SOG Access Card hidden in my wallet

    SOG Crossgrip also in my watch pocket (not exactly a knife but I keep the little blade on it wicked sharp and it's very sheeple friendly)


    I have a BG-42 CF Military on the way from NGK so that will probably replace my current millie as my EDC. Also have an Al Mar mini-SERE on the way, so I might need to find some place to carry that as well. I think I need more pockets


    I'm currently drooling over pictures of wood inlayed classic sebenza's, and don't think I'll be able to resist buying one for long

    Current rotation consists of the following:

    small Sebenza w/African blackwood inlays

    Syderco Delica

    Benchmade 941

    Others are worked in from time to time but these three make up 90% of my EDC needs.

    Always have a SAK Hiker with the awl sharpened up to remove splinters. Works better than a needle and gets way too much use. Also usually carry a Doug Ritter Bench Made in S30V and switch that out for the Osborne Bench Made in 154CM for dressier occasions.

    Benchmade Griptilian Ritter version s30V in black finish seems to be the one which finds its way into my pocket these days. Good balance of weight, steel quality and cost.
    TWO is ONE and ONE is NONE, but THREE is more FUN.

    A very simple design that I have liked ever since Gerber brought it out in the early 80s, a Blackie Collins designed Bolt Action with a drop point blade. I like the handle design, and the lock, which happens to be easy to manipulate with my left hand as I am a leftie. The current model is a discontinued Meyerco model with pocket clip and thumbstuds. I have 3 because I bought 2 spares when I saw they were being discontinued. I also carry a serrated Spyderco Cricket in my right front pocket. I dont consider the SAK Midnight Manager and Gerber Multipliers to be knives, they are tools .

    I have bought dozens of other designs, benchmades, spydercos, customs, to try and replace this design but I always go back to it and they get tossed in the knife duffle, or given away.
