I've been toting a Ka-Bar Mule since my time in Baghdad back in 2005. Quite worn looking, but still spry and stout. Lots of blade left.

I carry the CRKT M16-01T. This is as close to perfect I have gotten without going custom. Of course, asking somebody what the best EDC knife is like asking what the best tasting food is.

Formerly a carried of SAKs, I have been a Leather head for about the last twenty-five years. I usually carry a Wave and a bit kit, plus a PS4 on my keyring. What I am learning is that the PS4 (especially the scissors) will handle about 90 per cent of the tasks I encounter - just keep that tiny blade nice and sharp. It is non-threatening and is not likely to be confused with a weapon. There are times, however, when a full size L-tool is just what the doctor ordered. Those are mostly in outdoor environments where something that big is "normal."

Presently I have a Spyderco Delica4. I've used previous Delica2 and Salt1 and the Tenacious. If the Tenacious came in VG-10, I would consider this my perfect everyday carry. I love the feel in my hands. I have a number of other blades like the Benchmade Ares but the feel and weight are off - just too heavy for me and a couple of other older folders that can only be opened with the nail slot.

I keep a Leatherman Wave in my EDC purse, but my EDC pocket carry is a SAK Camper. (At least I think it's a Camper. It was handed down to me from my Dad almost 25 years ago.)

I have a couple Delica4s including one in Super Blue. The Delica is a fantastic knife but just a smidge too large for EDC (for me). The Native is another really superb knife, right on the top edge of EDC size, that I really like. The one thing that I generally insist on for EDC blades is they have full flat grinds; FFGs just slice a lot better and I find them easier to resharpen.
