    I just got this and I think it is a good size EDC knife. Buck 102 Woodsman , 4" blade , $58.90 off ebay shipped. I received it in 2 days. You can get it with the black handle for about $12 less.

    When I see a question like this, my first thought is that it's all about blade thickness, especially if a smaller knife is preferred.

    Thick-bladed, bushcraft/Scandi knives are ideal for cutting wood, and they can handle some pretty tough utility jobs for their size; the downside is, they do not fair well as slicers. Cutting an apple into bite-sized pieces is always going to be a messy proposition.

    Thinner knives make slicing a breeze but thin knives are not as tough, especially if they are small.

    I'd suggest a Scandi, based on what you seem to have in mind for it. The smaller ones can be had with pocket sheaths that keep them out of sight, if that matters to you.

    For working my land I like to carry a Cold Steel Hunter, thick 4" carbon steel blade with kydex sheath, folding saw, ax, and good garden clippers. That does just about everything short of chainsaw or shovel needs. (which I go get when needed).

    I learned long ago not to try to use a knife as an ax, an axe as shovel, a knife as a pry bar or a shovel as a saw.
    Use the right tool for the job. Safer for you, the tool and the work.
