EDC pocket knives: always there when
you need them
EDC stands for Every Day Carry, a pocket knife for daily use so to say. They’re foldable and offer normally no other functions than purely the blade itself. EDC pocket knives are a popular segment in knives that not only cater for practical users, but also attract interest from collectors, as the diversity is enormous. Some EDC pocket knives are purely designed for everyday use, but others are stunning pieces of design with only the best materials used. What they’ve got in common is the fact these EDC knives are all compact and lightweight. Just drop one in your pocket or secure it with a clip and you’re good to go.
Swiss Army knives: robust do-it-all’s
A Swiss Army knife, also known as SAK or Swiss pocket knife, doesn’t always come from Switzerland anymore, as the Swiss Army knife has become the collective name for all knives that feature multiple functions or tools. The name descends from the knife that was designed and made for the Swiss Army in the nineteenth century. It needs to be said though, the best Swiss Army knives still do come from Switzerland and yes, the Swiss Army continues to use them, as are many others.
The Swiss Army knife can be seen as the main definition as what most people consider a pocket knife. You could say it was the world’s first multitool, long before that became a product group on its own. Aside from classic tools as the blade, bottle opener, can opener, screwdriver and corkscrew, the assortment of implemented tools knows no boundaries. Swiss Army knives are known for their versatility and robustness.
Other pocket knives: from workhorses
to pure gems
Of course, there are plenty of pockets knifes that are too big or too heavy to be considered an EDC pocket knife, but that will prove their worth as being very practical, for example as an outdoor knife. There are also compact pocket knives, such as gentleman’s knives. These are slim and stylish.
