We are the EveryDay Carriers!

We here at the EDC Club are the side of the knife hobby who are the "Users." We are the EveryDay Carriers. Yes, we probably have one or two stuck back either due to sentimental reasons, or the knife was one of those- "just couldn't say no" when we first saw it and now it is a trophy knife in our possession, BUT, for the most part, we are users.

It's hard for us to imagine spending hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars on knives - then stashing them away and not putting them to task, like they were made for. We help knives fulfill their destiny! Yes, they get scratched, tips broken off, and lost, but sitting there collecting dust, all the while its screaming to be carried and used- not our knives.

Granted we may rotate our EDC's in and out based on what we are doing for the day, or our moods, and may even retire one every now and then, but use them we do and are proud of it!

That's a nice one Kees. I've played around with that one briefly and it's quite the beast and yet still lightweight.

my new edc for the last few weeks....  so far so good

1 lionsteel TM-1

Comment by Ron Cooper on June 13, 2015 at 14:14

That K2 really is a brute of a knife. It even dwarfs Spyderco's titanium Military model. I'll look forward to your review.

Put the Spyderco Southard folder down to try and carry this monster. The Spyderco K2.  5.5" closed in the pocket would seem to large to carry comfortably, but I barely noticed it. I will probably review it in after a week or 3.

this one is now on pension....

it was my daily pocket-partner for almost 20 years and survived :   1 police arrest,  2 jobs,  3 houses,  4 dogs,  5 cars,  6 phones  and 7 lunchboxes

it was (mis)used as hammer, screwdriver, castingweight, doorstopper, axe, canopener, tentpeg, spear, chisel and more...

dishwashers, seawater, extreme cold, sand, washing machine, or a 12 meter drop on a concrete floor never were a problem... even when a van drove over it by accidence it did not scream !!

i took it to fancy hotels, fishing trips, bbqs, mountains, beaches and it even was on stage with the band more than once

it is bumped and scratched a little (this is the most undamaged side)  but still 100% ok   no movement  in lock or washers and even the inlaid rubber still feels like 25 years ago

comfortably flat, light, strong and shaped so that it would never damage clothing ....  carried bottom-down and with the clip positioned on the axle  so that the knife sticks out a little ( i personaly like that more than" deep inside " clips )

as i said... this knife is now retired..... before it goes bad ( the lock reached its final position )  and i thought that a buck vantage would be a nice replacement but....... i took that back to the shop within a few days ( dull. bad centered and a lot of space )  NO COMPARISON

at the moment my edc is  the new lionsteel TM-1  and sometimes my mcusta tactility  but i would never try to abuse them as i did my old crosslock  !!!   ( why is a knife like this discontinued ?)  buck still makes the 110  so why not this superknife ??  ohhh i know ...  if they all keep on going for 20+ years they dont sell enough   :-)

 BUCK CROSSLOCK 180.... RESPECT !!

Jack that neck knife is sweet and I am looking forward to a review.

I added a link to your discussion Jack.  It goes to the about us page.  What a great story Murray Carter has!

Comment by Jack Haskins, Jr. on April 2, 2015 at 9:21

Jack Carter I believe is another person. These knives come from Murray Carter at cartercutlery.com. He's a 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith trained in Japan. I also think he has a Master Bladesmith title in the US. Each knife is hand forged and he is now using an apprentice to make knives at a lower price under his training. The Muteki knives are the knives made by the apprentice. I also ordered a genuine Carter made neck knife to get the free kitchen knife. I have the neck knife and am still waiting on the kitchen knives. Mr. Carter makes knives of the same type in groups of the same type I'm told and should have mine in a week or so I hope.  Here's a picture of the original Carter neck knife.

I'm really loving this knife. The difference in the Muteki (apprentice) and the original Carter can be seen IMO in what you might see in a knife made by a very skilled knife maker and a knife made by a master bladesmith trained for many years under a Japanese bladesmith and many others who specialize in different types of knives, steel, etc. It's pretty interesting reading about Murray Carter's training experiences. I've gotten used to wearing a larger knife (3 3/8" blade) in a neck sheath. It's also the first fixed blade I've carried as an EDC knife. I'm going to get some thoughts together and write a review about these two Carter Cutlery knives. I'll emphasize I'm not a knife expert. I just know a little bit and not much at all about metalurgy.

Jack, Congrats!!!!!!!

I am waiting to see how this plays out.  

Will she like the Carter, will you be able to part with if she doesnt?  How does EDCing a fixed blade work out for you??
