 I want to get your guys take on what your favorites, EDC, etc... are and why you like them. Or maybe you dont like them. Whatever you think.

Those are no-fun zones. I avoid places like that.

Just picked up a Benchmade Adamas 275 and I’m really liking it so far. Very beefy knife. One I have now is black, thinking of picking up the tan auto version.

I've really liked my ZT350.  It seemed big at first in my pocket, but it's flat and takes up less space than you would think. I never leave home without it now.

ZT makes some really sweet looking knives! I always tend to carry a knife a little on the larger side. My current EDC is a spyderco para2 and a cold steel frenzy. The frenzy is long but its thin so I slip it in my waist band and it fits like a glove.

All depends on what your budget is and style of knife you like , I have pretty much carried everything but lately Protech TR3, TR4 and a Benchmade AFO2 I rotate those 3 out , a lot of folks still do not realize that switchblades became legal to carry here in Tennessee back in 2014 automatics are just more fun to EDC  in my opinion

I carry a Kershaw kryo which gets most of the abuse. I also carry a small Boker folder for more precision work. My Leatherman has a blade but I rarely use it. 

I've also got a CRKT Woods Chogan thats proven to be a quite handy little camp axe.

That's a sweet axe! I was looking at tomahawks about a week back most were either too small to use, or too big to be a "tomahak", and ton of them had fiberglass handles. It looks like crkt makes a good selection at a really good price. The Chogan looks awesome!

I have literally a whole drawer full of knives. They include Kabars, Helle, ESEE, Bokers, Keyshawn’s, Spydercos, Cold Steels, CRKT, Gerbers, Svords etc.

I’m 57 years old. I love to camp, hike and kayak. And my two constant companions in the outdoors, the last 5 or 6 years are a Victorinox Deluxe Tinker and a Mora Companion HD. Neither knife costs me more than $25. And the Deluxe Tinker does double duty as my everyday EDC. 

I also have a Buck 110 that rides in my truck, but it’s not been out in a year or so.

Moved this thread to a separate section of the site. Seems to fit better here.

Also, here is my current EDC:

Sodbuster. Still have the one my father gave me 15 or so years ago. An awesome classic knife.

That's why I got one. Not too big, not too small. I wanted a hammer rather than a spike, much more useful for me.

Mine had handle issues when I got it, the head had peeled a bunch of the wood off during installation.  There's no way whoever did it didn't notice. I emailed them a pic and they sent me another handle. Luckily I was able to fix the original handle so now I have a spare.
