I ended up ordering a Spyderco Tenacious for my EDC. Does anyone have any experience with this knife? It will mostly be used for opening packages and such, so I thought this would work well for that

I haven't done any torture tests with mine but it's really an awesome folder. The ergonomics are great - very balanced feel, handle is grippy without being an aggressive pocket shredder, the clip is secure, lock up is solid.

Opening is a breeze with the hole and it flips well. Just cleaned mine today with CLP... sharpens easy too.

I was going to mention that I carry the CRKT M16 EDC version as my "suit knife" when I have to go to a wedding or other event and need to wear a suit, because its thin and lightweight...but then I realized I already said that on this thread...on page 9...over 2 years ago. :shock:

My go to EDC knife for the last few years has been the CRKT M21-02 G10.

Its a more robust M16 EDC with a wider and thicker blade and G10 handles, but importantly the blade is 3" which is the blade limit in Delaware, the state where I need to visit regularly for work, so its legal to carry. I have spydercos and benchmades,and even tried some buck folders and cold steel, but I keep coming back to this M21 as my go to EDC folder, for years. This knife gets abused, (scraping caulk, light prying, using the tip as a screwdriver) and its still works fine and looks good. One thing that did go wrong was it "had" the autolock but a spring popped out of it after the first year of ownership. The knife still function the same but the lock is pretty much neutered.

I got lucky last week and caught the Tenacious Green G10 version on ecop! via Ebay for $19 and change. Been riding in my pocket the last few days, and I'm loving it! :clap:

I used to carry my Kershaw BLUR and now I carry my Kershaw Cyro. Occasionally I will still carry my BLUR.

I'm the same only in reverse, I got the Cryo II Blackwash to use when I sent my Tanto Blur in to Kershaw for a new blade and some refurb work. [After 5 years of EDC, it was pretty beat up.] So EDC'd the Cryo during the 6 week turn around, and when I got the Blur back I found I prefer the liner lock Blur to the frame lock Cryo because its easier to operate with one hand and is lighter. Plus I really do use the serration a lot for cutting straps and wire, etc.

A very old, well used and sharp Benchmade AFCK. Civilians view it as some sort of giant Bowie-like knife :mrgreen: About 9" when opened up

Through the years I've carried all manner of semi premium name brand knives. Spyderco Endura's, Benchmade tactical folders, several Gerbers. Most of them were very fine knives. Unfortunately sooner or later they get misplaced , lost or lent and never returned. Couple years back I just began to carry plain utility folders I buy at Home Depot. Good steel, reasonably strong , one hand opening with a flick of the wrist. Handles all my EDC cutting chores. With the added benefit that it looks completely benign. I'd show you a picture of mine but I umm lost it. Here's the link though http://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-FASTBACK-5-in-Flip-Pocket-Knife-48-22-1990/203981004 Best ten bucks I've spent on a knife( over and over)

Normally I carry one of these but I've recently lost it. http://www.heinnie.com/victorinox-climber
It's a great EDC for my needs and I love the scissors on it, use them daily.

Because I've misplaced my Climber I'm currently carrying one of these and it's in my pocket now. http://www.heinnie.com/fallkniven-tk4
I absolutely love it. It's light, really sharp and I can still use it in front of people without them freaking out. I used it last night at a Halloween party and it carved about 10 pumpkins. I do miss not having scissors on it though.

But when I'm at home, away from work and out and about at weekends and evenings I carry this. http://www.heinnie.com/emerson-cqc7-b
Again I love this knife, not had it long and wish I got one sooner. I can cope with anything.

I have two that I carry almost daily, I used to carry a muskrat in a custom pouch my mother made me. Nice little trapper style knife.

Now I carry a Smith and Wesson Baby Swat, liner lock. I find this is just the right size to carry for me. I like that it's thin and light. Its not the end all in a self defense knife but its better than a dull stick, and I can use it to make a stick sharp.

I also usually have a Victorinox Lighted Spartan which I find has most the tools I need in a general purpose knife.

I actually lost the Spartan last week. I took my grandson to visit the LEO center for his cub scout outing and when we got to the door I realized that I better put the knife back in my truck. When I checked my pocket I found it wasn't there. I thought I must have left it at work. Next day I get to work and it wasn't there.
Then I remembered that when we got out of my truck I the night before I remembered hearing something fall. I realized it must have been my knife. I left work and drove over to the LEO center and sure enough the knife was laying in the center of the parking spot I used the night before. It cost me 1/2 an hour of lost wages but it was worth it to me. The knife was a gift from my wife.

Lucky it was still there.

I hate that feeling of reaching for your EDC folder and its not there. has happened to me 3 or 4 times in the last 6 years. But its just that i forgot to equip it, and its in its usual waiting place.

The weird thing is that it gets transfered 5 times a day everyday. Dog walking pants to work pants to relaxing pants to nightstand to bathroom [yes, I carry it from the nightstand to the bathroom when I get up in the morning] and then back to the dog walking pants to start over. How I don't load out with it now is just a brain fart between the DWP and the Work pants.

On Work days I'm EDCing the Kershaw Blur, a Leatherman 300, and a Kabar 1100. I have the Cryo II and a Husky folding utility in my computer bag, and a $5 Sheffield liner lock in my center console. :shock:

A month or two back I got my trusty ZT0566 stolen out of my car. Ran with an assisted Kizer folder for a bit, but there was just something about it that didn't jive with me. Wasn't getting "The Fizz" as it were.

So I went ahead and picked up a Spyderco Manix 2 G10. I had been eyeballing one for a while and decided 'fuck it' and grabbed. After using assisted folders or flippers for so long, its taking some time getting used to the spidey hole but I'm fairly happy with it.

Feels fantastic in the hand. Easy as piss to sharpen. Locks up solid with no play. Centered perfectly (as it should by design) May look into a different set of scales just to jazz it up some but overall great knife

This blade has been with me for 20 years. It's travelled in pockets and shaving kits and canoes. It has tasted pine, hemp and guts. I have even opened a letter or two. The blade has Benchmade on one side and Emerson on the other. Win/win.

Unless my eyes deceive me, every day carry does not mean every day usage.

Is anyone else getting the "Board is temporarily unavailable" message constantly?

Was kind of hoping to see more roughed up knives. That Benchmade is my main folder and standby but my EDC is often a Spyderco Endura that I did not take a picture of because it is all shiny and you know what a shiny knife looks like. It's my 8th one in 20 years or so. People probably tend to protect the things they have inherited and such but it is cool to see knives that someone else also carried every day. My grandfather carried an Old Timer that he kept as sharp as a razor for cleaning muskrat, raccoon, and fox. I don't carry it for the reason stated previously, but I'll try to take a picture later. He had it when I first started hunting with him and he had it in his pocket when he died 20+ years later. That's Zen-like. A good blade is something your family can use for generations.

So, just trying to broaden the EDC knife category without developing a complex that everyone else takes better care of their stuff than I do.

My Manix is damn near brand new. I used my 0566 for everything before it got stolen. Had residue from tape stuck to the blade. Dings from being dropped. Scratches from being used as a bottle opener. The coated pocket clip was worn in places, etc. etc.

I try not to keep coated blades and knives purely because after a while the coating starts to look like shit.

But yeah, every day carry doesn't necessarily mean every day use.

My Edc gets used constantly everyday. Maybe not gutting and skinning a moose or building a 3/4 scale replica of the golden gate bridge but used none the less. Most of them don't last long enough to gain character. My last endura lasted the longest about five or six years, that was a tough loss, felt like I lost a finger ( there I go again , turn the page ). since then my edc is always cheap and replaceable. When your as forgetful as me it doesn't pay to have a more expensive... ummm what were we talking about ?

LOL. EDU then? That particular Benchmade has been to over 20 countries and I have been known to dummy-cord it here and there. The Spydercos just get replaced when I need a new one. I find them on ebay for less than $40 normally.
