I asked this way because to me EDC is going to be a folder but I am sure this is not true for everyone. EDC for some would be a multitool, or a fighting knife, a fixed blade, or maybe a box cutter but that could take us down a rabbit hole. I wanted to stick with folders to narrow it down a little. Mine changes with the wind. I carry Benchmade more than any other brand but probably a dozen different knives across a few brands are c swapped in and out depending on my mood. Spiderco above is one I go to a lot it seems I have thought griptilian to be one of the best knives nd often recommended bu me for anyone seeking advice. I recently got a new Benchmade and I absolutely love it. It functions awesome but come on..... sexy isn't it? So I look for a few things in a knife for EDC Size Geometry weight is a huge factor one-handed operation Steel and of course like any other quality and dependability but all of my options are based on what I plan to do with it on a daily basis and that would change dependig on the user.... So what do you carry?
