Do You Have a Preference for an Everyday Carry Knife?

 Since I have retired, I no longer have as much need for an everyday carry knife as I used to. But, still, I have two I carry everyday.

On my belt I carry a Leatherman Fuse multitool. This has a blade on it, which I used almost daily in my job. 

I also carry a Buck knife, a model 110 folding knife. No huge reason, but after I carried it for about a week when my wife got it for me, it just felt right. So I still wear it. When I was working I used it in addition to my multitool almost daily in my job.

Each one has a different use for different things.

What about you guys? Do you have an everyday carry knife?

Do you have a preference for a fixed blade survival type knife? I have looked at several but don't have a preference. ESEE makes good ones, and so does Buck. Kabar is an excellent choice. 

What do you guys think?

  1. For a carry knife https://www.benchmade.com/275fe-2-adamas.html

    1) I love the axis lock, 2) the blade is beefy enough that I'd have to do something *seriously* stupid to break it, and 3) I got mine for 'free' from a nephew of mine - I traded him for a smaller and less pricy benchmade.

    For a fixed blade: https://www.topsknives.com/anaconda-9-hunters-point

    It's basically a camping hatchet. Again, I'd have to do something really stupid to break it and it's great for batoning up firewood.

    I also carry a letterman wave for pretty much everything else.

  2. I have a POS China Stainless with a half-serrated blade that I always carry, because I don't care about it. It's mostly used for cutting tape and opening packages. I have a Bahco Moro Puukka-style fixed blade for work, which I quite like. It cost about $8 online. I've got a SOG with a tanto blade folder, that pulls my pants down. I understand the appeal of multitools, but I'm an electrician, so I've almost always got a better pair of pliers within reach.

    1. The plier function of multitools is not good, but for little things it works ok.

  3. I'm sort of a collector of CRKT Knives. They have a variety of knife designers, and the company puts out a fairly strong and comfortable series of a variety of knives. My current favorite EDC is a Ruger sponsored Lerch Design, the LCK. It is a folder with bearings and a flipper that is lightning slick. Liner lock.Very stiletto in shape. Discrete.

    1. I inherited my dads pocketknife, but I don't carry it. I'm afraid I would lose it or break it.

    1. I have a kershaw i carried, the only thing i didn't like was the pocket clip. So I wound up carrying it in my pocket.

    2. EDC is Kershaw 3650 ST, started carrying it when I was working facilities maintenance and it has been all I ever needed.

    3. I never use the pocket clip on either blade. The smaller one used to open in my pocket, and it has a lock to keep the blade from opening. My EDC is a 3655.

    1. I am not sure you can carry too many. Fannypacks are always available to help carry.

  10. I carry a Gerber Metolius folder as an EDC. I found out after I bought it that it was an enormously popular knife that Gerber discontinued in spite of the really positive reviews it got. I was very lucky to find one.
