    Nice pictures^^

    I edc a Swiss Army knife. Untactical, but very practical for opening beer bottles, cutting off hangnails, opening boxes, pickin teeth, tweezin, etc. I think mine is called Officer.

    When I feel like it, I carry an Emerson knife with the wave. I love those things. I have a couple.

    Not my usual carry, but I dropped this in my pocket this morning on a whim. Great knife.

    Clinch Pick by Shivworks for a couple years or so now. Had it reground by Ban Tang. It's too sharp to let people handle; for some reason they have an impulse to place their thumb on the edge.

    For utility, edc now is a Case Sodbuster Jr. It's a lot of fun. If I needed a stouter knife I'd pack my native 5.

    These two have been finding their way into my pocket on a regular basis, even though I've been carrying a wide array of knives as of recently.

    Victorinox Recruit, a simple no frills SAK that's got everything I need and nothing I don't.

    Opinel 06, A really cool, and sharp knife that cuts like crazy, and is quite simplistic.

    CRKT Kasper -- Mostly it's thin. Works well as a boot knife, or neck knife (both are unlawful in this state -- even w/ a CCW). Comes with two Kydex sheaths, right and left handed. Belt clip can mount either above the blade or behind the blade (High ride/low ride). Right size for utility use, unobtrusive on the belt. I like the shape of the grip and the blade.

    Besides my Daily Kiri, I've usually been carrying a Spyderco Persian 2 87mm. Cutlery Shoppe was closing them out for $90, and still had a few left, last I checked. Not the smoothest-opening Spyderco- the Manix 2s are much smoother- but extremely tight lockup. Takes an edge like a razor, and the tip's needle-sharp.

    Regarding JShirley's pick above , while an Emerson Custom Super Commander might be the schizzle, I have found my Emerson PERSIAN not so much so for EDC, at least. While wondrously made ; at least as good as a CRK Sebenza IMHO, the fierce appearing insanely sharp slicer blade just is not optimum for daily tasks.

    If I am in ranch clothes then this is an excellent Heavy Duty EDC I have found. I abused it and it kept asking for more!

    To be cheap and effective, I always buy Kershaw blades when they go on sale. They have never disappointed me and it gets to the point of guns...which do I bring with me today?

    My latest EDC is a Micro-Tech Socom. The best knife I've ever had, and I've had many, and worth every cent I paid for it. The S35VN blade only needs a touch up if I want it hair popping sharp constantly. I use it many times a day for everything except food and anything that might scar it. Best performing knife, for me, for any money.

    As an EDC, I have a Spyderco Caly 3 with Carbon-fiber grips and a laminated ZDP189/420 blade. This replaced an earlier Caly 3 with ATS-34 blade and G10 grips. It does hold an edge better, but it is harder to sharpen.

    I also have multiple first aid kits, and every one has a SAK "Climber" model. I've found the bootlace tool to be a real finger-saver when dealing with climbing boots, and the ability to store a micro screwdriver inside the corkscrew has saved more than one pair of glasses with a loose screw.

    I used to carry the SAK everywhere, but fasteners evolved and I found I had to open panels for inspection, on short notice, and the SAK just didn't have the right bit. So I now carry a hex bit/driver kit in a 1911 mag pouch for various screws and the Spyderco Caly 3 to deal with cardboard boxes and rope, leaving the faithful SAK in the first aid kits.

    Used to carry a Leek before the clip bent out of repair, good blade o. that though, keep it in my car's ash tray as a back up. Currently carry a Buck Vantage Pro, easily the sharpest factory knife I have recieved out of box, holds a good edge, good all around knife. My only gripe is the squareish corners can become annoying if you have to clip it to a pocket that holds your phone; scrapes against your hand.

    I'd highly recommend the knife, it is made in the USA to (Leek and Vantage Pro).

    Swiss Army Tinker (Victorinox) and Benchmade Mini-Griptilian. The Tinker gets the most use as my cutting chores tend to be light. it also doesn't freak out people at work (college environment).

    Right now, a Spydie Manix 2, but I've got a bunch of others I can choose from. I wish more mnufacturers would make their knives ambidextrous, because I've lost a lot of fine control in my right hand (5 strokes), but I still need a knife on almost a daily basis.
