EDC Knives

While it has evolved significantly over the years, the knife is still one of mankind's oldest and most important tools. It can be extremely useful - you can open clamshells and boxes with it, prepare food, cut ropes and fix things around the household, and it's no wonder why there are so many professions (such as hunters, butchers, fishers, military service members and others) carrying an EDC folding knife on them at all times.

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.
The blade holds it's edge decently while enduring constant abuse and with stainless steel handles surrounding it, it's certainly not light for its size but it definitely is durable and capable of surviving even the toughest usage, far more than what I'd expect a $15 knife to endure.

At just 2.1 oz in weight, you can carry this in a shirt pocket without dragging you down, and the deep carry pocket clip lets you do so without it screaming to everyone that you have a knife when that isn't something you want to do. The thumbstud opening fits into a recess on the handle that allows the blade to close completely without sticking out and ruining the aesthetics of the design, and with the IKBS ball bearings in the pivot, the opening is smooth and quick.
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.
