POST FALLS, ID— More and more Americans are finding reasons to own an EDC knife—and be better prepared in today’s unpredictable world. These knives are the ones that fit into a pocket along with car keys, cellphone, a small flashlight, wallet—and possibly a concealed carry firearm.
There are choices when selecting the best EDC knife. You need to determine what the knife will be most often used for, how long the blade and handle should be, your budget, and how the knife feels in your hand. Many EDC knife owners also prefer a knife with a pocket clip and textured handle that aids with grip. Additionally, some knife owners and users seek the perfect knife with thumbstuds on the blade or possibly a push-button deploy assist feature. Automatic opening knives are also available. Blade style and material, plus the shape and materials used in construction of the handle, all add to the performance of the knife.
To get a better idea of the many options, visit www.buckknives.com and look at the provided details of the nearly 60 knives the company offers to those wishing to carry a knife every day. While inspecting the knives and features, don’t overlook the more traditional knives like the three-blade Model 301 Stockman or Model 055 The 55 Knife pocket knives. For those knife carriers wanting to be more technical, the 040 Onset OD Green with an olive-drab textured G10 handle and ball bearings along with a blade flipper assists with quick—and efficient—opening. Knife buyers wanting another technology-based knife option will want to look at Buck’s Model 841 Sprint Pro-Carbon Fiber with ball bearings to ensure smooth opening of the 3 1/8-inches long drop-point blade and an eye-catching marbled carbon fiber handle. The 841 Sprint Pro-Carbon Fiber also has a unique Cerakoted red stainless-steel pocket clip that provides for deep pocket carry and quick access. Buck Knives also offers several models of Deploy Auto knives, and automatic openers such as the 110 Auto which opens with the push of a button. For those wanting a more compact knife, the Model 722 Spitfire can be opened with one hand and folds to a mere 4.25 inches long. The Spitfire’s anodized aluminum handle is available in three colors: black, orange or gray.

I have been EDC’ing the new 662 Alpha Scout fixed blade. The sheath isn’t ideal for EDC use (review coming), but the small fixed blade 662 itself is a fantastic knife.
