    Show us your pocket knife, what do you carry daily

    Hi all, I haven't seen a thread yet on pocket knives - I guess they are called EDC "Every day carry"
    I have a variety of pocket knives that I rotate. Currently I carry a Microtech Ultratech. I would upload pictures but for some reason I can't anymore here on MTBR. What do you carry?

    Small Case for my daily carry. Itís only about 3Ē long, so not to big. The yellow handle reminded me of my dad and grandfathers Case knives when I was little.

    Here are my other preferred daily carries. These are for jeans day at work and weekends!


    This is my old daily carry before the small Case. Still a nice small backup.

    Benchmade Adamas. Strong enough to wedge in a crack and use as a step.

    I had a Boker Ekselimoor 2 as my edc for 8 years, then lost it.

    Currently my EDC is a Kershaw Skyline. I wasnít sure about it at first, but now that itís broken in, and Iíve gotten more used to it, Iím pretty happy with it.

    This is what I typically take with me besides my phone and car key. I'll take the flashlight if it's dark out.

    The knife is a Spyderco Persistence with a third party "deep carry" clip.

    I'm 100% sold on the small Swiss Army Classic: It's small and flat for the pocket, the scissors are more handy than a blade 90% of the time, the toothpick is also quite handy, and the flathead tip of the file is perfectly shaped for small philips head screws. The tweezers are also a nice size, especially for very small splinters or those tiny blackberry thorns.

    Boker ceramic and titanium. Going on 15 years with one lost and found incident. Never sharpened, has few micro chips in the blade but still g2g.

    Iíve gone through quite a few over the years- several Spyderco blades and a number of CRKT M16 variants. This is my current- wanted something smaller and thinner:

    Edc or mtb edc? Mtb I carry a spiderco salt plain edge on me, with mora garberg on my camelback with leather man and and original alien tool.

    Edc I have a tops bob, bm contego, buck marksman, tops msk 2.5 necker, and leatherman
    On occasion i swap out the bob for a bm Bushcrafter.

    I like knives but no mid techís or customs. My compound bows cost as much as my new fezarri.

    I rotate between a few Kershaw's, Syderco's, Kizer's, and SOG's, I even have a Chris Reeves clone when I'm going out.

    I own a bunch, but this Chicago Cutlery piece is my favorite. My mom gave it to me for my 23rd birthday. I'm now 56.

    I have 8 years EDC on an ESEE Izula. A small fixed blade has turned out to be perfect for me. I bought my brother one and he's carried his daily for 7 years.

    Benchmade and Buck

    My daily carry is Benchmade Mel Pardue design......had it for a long time. My two newest blades are a BM 2750 Sibert spring assist and a Buck spring assist. I prefer the Benchmades because they seem to fit my hand better and the clip can be mounted LH or RH.

    Show us your pocket knife, what do you carry daily

    while Iím big on fixed blade knifes having some custom and production knives from benchmade, fiddleback, cpk. Iím not much of an edc/folding guy and only have a black wave that I keep in my car, but I do wish I had a small sebenza even more because they are made a 5min drive from my house!

    Spyderco Dragonfly. Sorry, but too lazy to take a picture or go find a link. I have carried one of these for many years. Just the right size for me.

    Funny thing is that I have a ton of other knives. When out hiking, kayaking, backpacking, camping, etc., I usually have some fixed blade knife strapped to my backpack strap or PFD strap, or on my belt. But every single time that I need a knife, I reach into my pocket for my Spyderco. Well, except for when I am trout fishing, then I reach for my cheap Rapala small filet knife (which never disappoints).

    Spyderco is one of the very, very few knives with which I have ever been pleased with a stainless blade. They simply get it right with the grade of stainless. They come sharp, stay sharp, and take an edge. I rarely ever take a sharpener to my Spyderco (maybe every 2 years or so). Every few months I make 20 passes across a leather strop with some paste on it, and that alone keeps it plenty sharp.

    I have never been very satisfied with any Gerber, Kershaw, etc. type knife.

    For my whittling and carving knives, which is another topic, I love my Moras, with carbon steel blades (not stainless). They come with, keep, and take an edge that will beat even a Spyderco. Stainless can never touch carbon in that regard, even though Spyderco comes pretty close.
