I’m in love with the godfather stiletto type knife. Although I can’t get it from Amazon because I lack a credit card. Not to mention I’m not an adult physically, I wish though…One day…

what is the utilitarian reason for carrying a knife?

Red Pill Vegan says:

anyone care to comment on their opinion of the capability comparing the Ontario rat 2 to that new Kershaw am Almar collaboration? EDC tasks Etc… perhaps rat 2 might be better if it had to get pressed into emergency defensive? leave a comment thanks

Nazgoroth says:

I tend to carry a as small as possible knife (usually key chain knives like the Recon 1 Micro) due to regulations here (Netherlands). Some cops are fine with you carrying, others consider you armed and dangerous if you carry a screwdriver in the open…

Sly Marbo says:

I carry Glock 78 :DD

Gary Ellliott says:

Nice variety for an interesting/popular category.  Good explanations for each.  Thx!

Martin Hawrylkiewicz says:

Spyderco sage 1 is my all time favorite EDC. Just got the Rat 1 but it proves to be too big for edc so I use it when I am doing any kind of yard work.

Yukio7 Official幸雄7 says:

So would you have to give a reason other than “the law says I can” for carrying an EDC knife in the UK? (UK knife laws are confusing)

Grant Davis says:

I tend to carry a 3 to 4 inch knife I prefer overall a 3.5 inch blade length knife

Troy Dodson says:

I like big knives, if im wearing something with shitty pockets (sweats, basketball shorts, ect) I just carry a neck knife, problem solved.

Justin Yoon says:

I carry 3~4 inch blade

Ben Fellows says:

I usually carry a medium sized knife because of UK law. They’re still illegal but not as illegal as some larger knives

good set of knives you have there.   We only carry medium folders, they tend to be the best all rounders.

Drumdudeck says:

I seriously love this video. Impeccable taste man! Every knife here is either on my wtb list or I already own it. Minus a kizer gemini and para 3. Great job

Jmuk35 says:

I was gonna ask the same thing, where’s your PM2? You love that knife, and so do I.

Cameron Essary says:

Local laws allow 4″ blades here. I tend to carry 3″ or less just because it is so much easier to work with. I don’t like a sharpening choil on a smaller blade because it gets snagged a lot. But with a larger knife if I doing a lot of repetitive cutting I’m more likely to close the blade more often while I’m moving around and even the closed knife is more clumsy to carry so it ends up back in my pocket more often. I like the 4″ blades that I own but my typical EDC is just under 3″ in a right hand, tip up configuration without a sharpening choil.

Colby Love says:

I need one people get jumped on the way home and the other kids that go to my school hold guns
