Favorite EDC knive

Kershaw Skyline today. Just this side of forearm shaving sharp from the box. It is now such after a few passes on a Sharpmaker.

Made in USA. Decent steel. "Tuneable" after watching the Nick Shabazz disassembly video. Under 50.00 all day long.
 
The four knives that spend the most time in my pocket (top to bottom)

Benchmade 940 - This is the ultimate knife for me. Slim profile so it hides in the pocket well. The action and the blade are top notch.

Zero Tolerance 0450 - No other knife feels so well constructed. Super easy flipper with an elegant design.

Hogue Deka - This one really surprised me. The action on it is the best I've ever experienced. It's not a snap open, but rather a controlled glide. Totally effortless. Lightweight and feels great in the hand. They nailed it with this one.

Victorinox Tinker - Such a useful knife. This one has opened many boxes, pried off many paint cans, popped off many beer bottletops, and turned many screws. IMG_20200721_230540.jpg
 
The top two of my favorite knives are from Schrade like

The schf9 for more of when I'm in the field due to the size and how durable it is. I love the grip and have been using this for almost a year.

The schf57 would be my edc, it's weird since it's not a folding knife but I love the weight and feel of it in my hands. I usually have it strapped to the back of my belt or velcro'd in my car when I'm driving

These tend to be my most used pocket tools at present.

... though not all at the same time.

The others I keep returning to, are this lightweight neck carry lanyard, when pockets are limited, or can't be trusted (shorts etc)...

... or this slightly heavier combo, which can be neck worn or pocket carried (with lanyard hitched to a belt loop)

My EDC is an old four-line Camillus Cutlery Navy Rope knife I have on my keychain -

She has seen a lot of hard use and better years but will still cut string and draw blood if I am not careful :oops:.
