Favorite/EDC pocket knives
« on: October 13, 2017, 05:12:23 PM »
What are everyones favorite knives to carry for utility or just to have? I've been in the market ever since my favorite knife broke the pocket clip.

My favorite for years has been the Kershaw Cryo 2. I had one that I killed by accidentally cutting into a 220v line;) And I replaced it with the same blade, my only complaint is the blade steel is 8CR13MOV, which isn't great but it does the job and it's easy enough to sharpen. It's around AUS8 quality and hardness in my experience but I prefer the 9CR13MOV to the 8 just a little more carbon and a little harder at the end of the day. But overall my favorite pocket knife for a long time now;)



You can find them on Ebay pretty easily at a decent price, but the 2 is bigger than the 1, so the 2 is by far the one I prefer. However I should also note it doesn't look too "tactical" so if you open it in public it doesn't quite scare people in the same manner as other tactical knives either. It's no fixed blade but it's pretty dang good;)

I really like CRKT and Kershaw. Both are pretty solid knives and have plenty of  options for everyone's bugdet. I own a Gerber and I've never been pleased with it, it didn't hold an edge very long and the spring assist wore out very quickly, plus I paid almost $70 for that P.O.S

Gerber back in the day was quite good. I still like their axes under fiskars but their knives aren't what they used to be.

Take care

In my opinion, you can't go wrong with a Spyderco Delica 4. Small enough to disappear in your pocket and big enough to do just about any daily tasks. VG-10 steel holds a decent edge, but still isn't a pain in the neck to sharpen when you do need to do it.
