EDC knives

Post by taz575 »

So what is an EDC knife? It is an Every Day Carry knife, designed for easy, discrete carry and performance in a wide variety of tasks. They often double as hunting knives as well. I use a variety of steels like AEB-L, CPM S35VN, D2, Elmax, 80CRV2, Alabama Damascus and other steels are also available. My EDC blades are either 3/32" thick or 1/8" stock, full tang or hidden tangs. Hidden tangs have a G10 or Micarta frame around the narrow tang to which the scales are attached.

These are all currently available!

Top is CPM S35VN blade, 3.75" tip to start of finger choil in 3/32" CPM S35VN. Handle is a G Carta handle Mexican Blanket Ridgeback with a black G10 frame. Model is called the BUK (belt utility knife) and is a larger handle, longer blade with cut out to choke up for more precision. The knife itself is around 10" overall and less than 5 oz. Very thin and slicey! Great for hiking/camping and lighter duty chores/meal prep. Grind is a full flat grind to the spine and then convexed.

2nd is a 3" Alabama Damascus blade with a Desert Ironwood handle and kydex sheath.

Middle one is 3" D2 blade (full tang) and Desert Ironwood handles, kydex wood pattern sheath.

#4 and 4 are both AEB-L blades with frame handles. #4 is stabilized Snakeskin Sycamore burl, with red G10 frame and white liners and kydex sheath. #5 is a Micarta frame handle and comes with a leather sheath.

Some others I have made:
