Post your usual EDC blade. Not your entire autistic knife collection, just the knife you carry the most.

Pic related. It's on my keychain, so I have it on me the most. Still carry a bigger folder with me most of the time depending on the task or feeling. Big believe in one is none two is one.

Could anyone give me some recommendations?

Just looking for a single folder, not a multi-tool or whatever, and under $50. Preferably something I could use Prime for.
>>
>>28914610
>Preferably something I could use Prime for
wut?

Anyway there are tons of options in that price range. Get something from a reputable manufacturer in a style you like and go for it. Spyderco, CRKT, Kershaw etc
>>
>>28915022

Amazon Prime.

I've got this fake sebenza
actually very very impressed with the build quality, solid like my ZT.
The blade steel is shit, though. Tried to stab a hole in a beer can top and fucked the edge up, i was used to my ZTs elmax.
I want another one just to have in case this one gets fucked up.
For $17 it's wonderful.

Thanks. Any tips for an EDC newb?

I have an Opinel no8 that I love but it's too bulbous/slow for EDC. Re the price: buy nice or buy twice.

Many people prefer tip up carry vs tip down carry. Find out what you like
Always be aware of where your fingers are when using it, and always cut away from you

Really happy with this knife for how cheap it was.

I also have the smaller one CRKT used to make, the one with the antler scales instead of micarta, but I generally relegate that one to around-the-house work because I'd be really sad if I lost it.
>>
>>28916447
All good tips, thank you. Will I need any special equipment to keep it sharp? I've kept my Opinel sharp using a ceramic coffee mug, not sure if the Spyderco will appreciate that treatment.
>>
>>28916423
Yeah I used to love my opinel no.9 but it is slow as fuck i also had a SOG Flash 1 at the time i sent them both back for a Kershaw Volt 2, i later got a Sanrenmu 7007 and a Byrd Cara Cara 2 and now my coated RAT 2, I seriously want a different steel next time around, i think the next knaifu will be the Spyderco Native 5 or the Spyderco Mini Griptilian
>>
>>28916585
Get a decent sharpener like something from Lansky
>>
how do you get a knife to be so sharp you know if you touch the edge you'll get a bad cut? is it all about edge angle or the type of steel?

I have a swiss army knife i've run on a sharpmaker and although it glides through paper the edge actually doesn't feel sharp.
>>
>>28916657
Angle, grit type, stropping, and polishing

Sharpening =/= stropping
There's a reason straight razors always finish on a leather strop
>>
My EDC knife is an HK Espionage. It has a quick assisted opening blade that has excellent torque.
It's got a slim blade and feels like an excellent piercer. The clip is also real deep so not much sticks out over the top of the pocket. I wasn't able to find a plain edge version. Paid $17 for it.

My old EDC was a Kershaw Clash.
>>

what do you think about this, /k/?
>>
>>28916657
edge angle and how finely the edge is polished, how much metal is "behind the edge" contributes too.

You really need to strop your edge to make the most of it, run the end of your fingernail up the edge of the blade, it should feel as smooth as glass, if it doesnt, then strop it on the inside of a leather belt with polishing compound untill it does.

the type of metal can make a difference too, i find that my basic high carbon steel knives like my opinels and some of my kitchen knives feel scary sharp along the edge and will "bite" into things easily, while my stainless blades sharpened and stropped exactly the same way will slide over things rather than bite in if you only use light preassure

I don't carry it every day, but if I am carrying something, it's this

I'm in the UK and you can carry something that is 3 inches or less and non-locking and non-fixed 'without good reason', but I still hear people getting hassled about it if they get searched.

This little thing stays on my keychain and comes in handy quite often. It's small, inoffensive, and offers fully serrated fun!

I usually carry it with a SAK on my belt and a small fixed blade or a folder with a 3 to 4" blade.

Be mindful that alot of pocket clips break kinda easy (gerber, kershaw, spyderco, callumus) I've broke alot of clips by them catching chairs, counters, etc keep them tight knives loose in your pocket are a bitch. Also I'm a lefty so I keep one in left and right pocket

The Sanrenmu is not a fake Sabenza.
It's a clone, tribute even
Don't get me wrong, I fucking love my Sanrenmu and EDC'd it for almost 5 years but it's not a Sabenza.

>>
>>28923982
No so much a clone as it's so exact.
All of the hardware i=on it is even the same.
Not suprising since the Drifter is made in china and Ranrenmu is an OEM supplier.

I'd go so far as to say that they're probably made in the same factory in the same line.
