    I carried this for 30 years in emergency Services. I wore out the case and called Gerber. They don't make this anymore but the guy found a case and shipped it to me no charge.

    ELMAX master race. I'm such a f***ing ZT fanboi.

    This is how I feel when I order more ZT blades

    Normal at home EDC’s.

    DCA8F586-60BB-4E4D-8D86-8D71842FFDCA.jpeg

    Regular rotation between all with the Kershaw Leek and CRKT Ripple seeing slightly less use than the Benchmade mini Griptilian, Ontario RAT II, and Spyderco Delica 4.

    59304A90-E394-4632-ACD0-85014659A936.jpeg

    Limit carry of the Buck 721 (don’t like), SOG Twitch II (too small) and Benchmade Tenacious (too big).



    Work EDC

    53CEE02B-E951-4239-9091-71A092DC499A.jpeg

    Required to carry a knife. Sees a lot of abuse. Broke the Esee Zancudo, so now use the Gerber Swagger AO, which was issued.

    The Victorinox Cadet is always kept in a pocket also. The tools see more use than the knife blade.


    Travel EDC

    AD9EEDEB-AA53-46F7-B64C-CC18D5EEBB6F.jpeg

    Stateside;
    Sanmenru 710 and CRKT M16-01KZ
    Both cheap so I don’t mind if I lose. The Sanmenru is carried 90+% of the time. I actually quite like.

    Out of country; Victorinox Pioneer. Lots of countries have restrictions on folders (like one handed opening prohibited) so this fits pretty much everywhere I go. Also, the bottle opener sees tons of use. The can opener has also came in handy.

    Hiking EDC

    163F35BA-DB96-4F77-A500-59135F8B5BBB.jpeg

    Morakniv Light my Fire edition or Ontario RAT 3. Also have a Morakniv Companion that stayed in my car always.

    [laugh] That’s my letter opener. I make sure I don’t open it into anything (ask drgrant about that ) 964A0FFA-6D8F-436A-BFDF-1DE0A4CFC444.jpeg


    I carry the ZT 0220 a lot because it’s a beast and is lighter than it looks. Combine that with that deep carry clip and it’s one of my favorite blades.


    DFA7FAFA-D7CF-4349-8D2B-6DC50E66C52D.jpeg

    On other days I carry one of the “blemished” Kershaws, the Leek (middle). Small, deploys fast , and is sharp enough for most of my work.

    I still need to buy that ZT 0450. Ugh.

    The mini grip since I just got the PM 2 delivered today. I'd say the PM2 will be the EDC go-to.

    I just got the Spyderco Efficient, which is the new knife to there "budget" line. It's pretty much the same size as the persistence but it doesn't have the hump on the back like most spyderco

    If your EDC includes a Knife, why not?
    Pix can give others ideas on what they never thought of including in their Carry.
    Start a thread!

    Benchmade Mel Pardue

    Love this little knife. Had another (lost or stolen) and ordered a new one same day I liked it so much.

    G-10 grips, super light, thin as only 2 strands of 550 cord and sharp as can be. It’s so small and light you forget it’s even there.

    Everyday is the Benchmade 910 Stryker - and I posted a pic of it earlier.

    Here's a pic of the blade that lives on the bike; I've had this for at least 30 years.
    I've got a simple leather sheath for it, which makes me think that I could probably make a kydex sheath for it pretty easily...

    Its pure functionality has always appealed to me.

    IMG_4275.JPG I've made good use over the years with this Shrade multi, the other one I just carry in June each year as a sentimental jesture to honor my grandfather who left me his knives. It's an Olsen and I've always liked the rosewood / brass folders!

    That’s the problem with these threads, you come in just to kill a minute, then you wake up 3 days later all groggy, in a pile of torn apart shipping materials and cut up credit cards...
