Way back when I first picked up the Kershaw Link, I had it placed in my Amazon cart as an afterthought, and a part of a (much) larger order of folding knives and other gear. While the price makes the Link the kind of knife you can just throw into a cart for the next time you … [Read more...]
Everyday Carry (EDC) Knives
We do quite a number of knife reviews on this blog, many of which are of EDCs/everyday carry knives (usually the folding pocket knife variety). The following are all the reviews we've done of knives that fall under the category of being EDCs/everyday carry knives.
And if there happens to be a knife you want a review of that isn't already up here, comment on a post or contact us to let us know.
Cold Steel has never been shy about buckling trend and the Talwar really brings this point home in spades. Very few knives in my collection (and as you can imagine, I have many) feature a more visceral presence, and whilst the Talwar is (slightly) over the top and styling … [Read more...]
Kershaw has been stealing the limelight as of late due to its amazing custom collaborations with notable knife designers like Rick Hinderer and Ernie Emerson. Personally, I feel that Kershaw really knocked it out of the park with the Thermite. It's got a great set of … [Read more...]
The CRKT Drifter has been a mainstay of the CRKT catalog for more than a few years now. I never really thought much of it based on its aesthetics, which is why it's taken so long for me to pick one up. This is a decision I rather regret now. The cutlery industry is always … [Read more...]
The Buck Vantage was a interesting acquisition for me. In a lot of ways, I find it contrarian to my initial expectations of what a Buck knife should represent - after all, most people think of knives like the Buck 110 Folding Hunter or even the Buck 119 as representative of … [Read more...]
The Kershaw Shuffle is an interesting little tyke recently introduced to the Kershaw lineup. I am not generally a huge fan of folders that attempt to segue into the multitool market, but I found the (albeit flawed) implementation on the Shuffle compelling enough to review. … [Read more...]
When the Spyderco Bug was announced I admittedly scoffed at the idea of a sub 3 inch (total length!) folder. What on earth could anyone do with a 1.27 inch blade? And yet, this tiny knife kept popping up in other people's pocket dumps and EDC showcases... So here I am - … [Read more...]
Traditionally speaking, ESEE Knives have been something like the voice of absolute reason in a market inundated with gimmicks and pseudo tactical nonsense. Over time, knife aficionados have come to expect a level of clean, functional purpose from Jeff Randall, and as a … [Read more...]
The many variants of the CRKT M16 have been a reference model for CRKT for quite some time now. I usually tend to avoid uber-tactical options when it comes to folders, with the exception of the CRKT Hissatsu (which I love), but I felt it was almost obligatory to pick up what … [Read more...]
The Kershaw Blur is probably the most popular knife that I own. It seems everyone I've spoken to either currently owns one, or has at least handled the Blur in the past, and when you see how much Kershaw brings to the table taking into account this knife's affordable entry … [Read more...]
