The Best EDC Knives Of 2020Urban or better known as EDC knives are popular tools for everyday carry. It is this locking blade feature that differentiates the lock-blade knife from either the peasant knife or the slipjoint spring-back knife, although locking knives tend to be larger than either of those types as well, due to the difficulty of putting a lock into a smaller knife frame, the greater chance of doing more forceful kinds of work with a larger knife, and the cost of a locking mechanism is a smaller percentage of the total cost than it would be on a smaller knife, which are generally expected to be considerably cheaper, although this varies a great deal depending on maker and market.
The attractive pattern to the carbon fiber handle not only looks great but keeps the overall weight down and grip levels up. The thin, sleek modified drop point blade Edc Knives is just 3-inches long and features a Titanium Nitride finish, and at just over 4-inches in length when closed, this makes for a very likable everyday carry.
The big choil integrated into the blade and handle allows for a choke grip that lets you have fine control over the blade, but you can also take a more stand off approach and grasp the entirety of the grippy G10 handle scales with a more traditional hold as well.
Alright, so, the knife I'm reviewing has a 3.19” drop point blade constructed of 8Cr13MoV steel with a nice polished look to it. These are deployed via ball-bearing equipped flipping mechanisms that are super easy to deploy and quite a bit smoother than what I'd expect at this price point.
Of course, that's going to largely depend on your willingness to care for your knife — including required maintenance, like sharpening and cleaning your blade If you're not willing to do these things, the longevity of your knife will shorten and, therefore, you might be more well-suited to a pocket knife that can be easily replaced.

Of pocket clips and blade finish, Ostroff opined, Pocket clips are vital on a folder, and tip-up is the only way to go as long as the knifemaker ensures that the detent is strong.” Stark said deep-carry pocket clips” that hold the knife significantly lower in the pocket are a strong selling point.
You should ask yourself what would you like to use your pocket knife for, and what do you want it to do. Even though most of the modern EDC knives can do almost anything, you should know that some certain models are better suited for some particular jobs.
But everything else that makes this a great knife stays the same: the CPM-S35VN stainless steel blade and the beautiful 6Al4V titanium frame handle's quality set this knife apart from the standard mass-produced item you might find on shelves, and that impeccable attention to detail is available to you if you have the cash to spring for it.
