The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
We have a great group "EDC Club" and has a lot of good topics, but no place really to post your EDC. And you have to be a member of that club to post on that group. I have been using a couple of posts in that group for my EDC's but does not relate to the topic.
SO - how about an ongoing Discussion with pictures of what you are carrying today?.
What are your favorite EDC's? What is your EDC lineup?
This will be for all IKC members, not just members of the EDC group.
So Post those Everyday Carrys and show us what you are carrying today.
Update on the Garrett Wade Canoe I got in February. Two for $26.35 or $13.18 each. Garrett Wade still has this knife on sale for the same price. So, how is my $13.00 knife performing. Still not Spring here so mostly the knife has been used for cutting some light cardboard, and those plastic bags that LL Bean and others use to ship soft stuff in; reinforced paper tape on shipping boxes, and the like. Those bags will let you know right away if your knife is sharp because they cut a jagged line if your knife is a little dull.
I did have to re-profile near the tip of the main blade because the person giving it the factory sharpening wasn't as careful as he/she should have been. If you have ever attended a W.R. Case event and watched the guy who sharpens your knife for free, he needs to be very steady to get it done correctly on the belt sander.
Lastly, I'll add that some of us would not admit it, but a lot of us would spend a day(s) working on an inexpensive (cheap) knife to try to get it to cut like a $300. S30V or 154CM instead of just using the S30V or 154CM - and you know who you are, hahahahaha.
LOL, you are so right about spending the day working the edge of lesser steel. I myself have done it ! I am glad this one is working out for you, it is a good looking knife and surely the price is right for an EDC
It's a slipjoint with 3 "half stops". Very unique action. The first two stops allow you to get the blade out far enough to get a good handle on it, because that last step is very stiff. Very nicely made. Works like a champ. Love the action and the blade shape. Recommended.
That is a sweet looking Boker!
Nice one!!! Boker is good stuff. At least the USA ones are.. For my edc I carry either a Kershaw Blur or a ZT 8201.. Love em both!!
My EDC are two knives, a SAK and a Lighting OTF.
I carry either a Kershaw 'blur or a Zt 0801 and use a side sheath. I just recently got a
Benchmade 570 SBK Presidio 111 that, of course has the clip. it goes in my pocket. it is a 1st. production 677/700.
