How to Pick the Best EDC Knife? The best everyday carry knife depends a lot on how you make a living and what your intended use is. You travel outdoors a lot and your situation may be best suited for a multi-tool, or you may have an outdoor job where a larger fixed blade works best for you. Maybe you work in a warehouse and need to break down a lot of cardboard, and the most common EDC knives on the market will do the job just fine. Here are my picks for the best EDC knives and multi-tools for (almost) any situation.

Final Thoughts

When you are looking for the best EDC knife, the first thing you need to do is to determine how you will actually use it. In reality, most people only use their knives to open packages or cut food while they are working. With that said, I still recommend buying the highest quality stuff you can afford because things happen and there may be times when you need your knife to go above and beyond normal tasks. When you have tried using the cheap stuff and spent thousands of dollars on quality tools, you will understand that knives should be viewed as a fine tool worth investing in.
