My EDC knife is a Spyderco Delica4 Flat Ground FRN. I consider it to be the best combination of least expensive and high quality in a Spyderco knife.

What’s your EDC knife (or firearm)?

  1. I carry 2 all the time. A swiss army Compact ….and a Spyderco Endura.
    Occaionally i carry my Gene Ingram fixed blade.

  2. Spyderco bug. If I’m going to carry it all the time, it needs to be small and lightweight. I’ve actually thought about ditching it for a razor blade wrapped in paper and placed in my wallet.

  3. CRKT Desert Cruise in a tip up left hand configuration (one of the few tactical folders that customizes for either hand) and a Victorinox Hiker.

  4. Off (fireman) duty, spyderco mil. black non serrated. On duty benchmade bedlam.

  5. I carry a Kershaw Leek.

    I carried a Wenger SAK for 20+ years. I Love it and would hate to lose it so I stopped.
    At work I sport a Leatherman Juice S2 and used to EDC it while ofc as well, but it’s heavy. Rare ly do I need it either so I leave it at home now.
