Custom EDC Knives
by Anton Shostak
What is EDC?
EDC or “Every Day Carry” means the stuff you carry with you every day. Naturally, an EDC knife is a knife that you carry with you every day. These EDC knives aren’t primarily designed to be used as weapons, instead they are meant to help out with common tasks like opening mail, preparing food, breaking down boxes and handling all the other chores of every day life.
Depending on where you live and what you do your definition of “EDC knife” could vary greatly. EDC to someone working in an office and someone working on a ranch are likely to be very different. I don’t have a hard and fast rule when defining an EDC knife, but if I had to assign some numbers they tend to have a blade length of 3.5? or under and a weight of 3.5 ounces and under.
Again, that is just a ballpark, many of the knives in this section do not adhere to those guidelines. My advice is to carry what you like, and to not get bogged down with arbitrary lengths and weights. If you are interested in my most highly recommended EDC knives you can find them here.
