Because even though I am really impressed with the abuses you two have brought on to a knife that thing is uglier than my exwife when she is looking the other way (and facing you at the same time).

There are really a lot of great knives out there. I own boxes full of cool knives.

BUT, my EDC since about 1987 has been a Spyderco Harpy. It is small enough that I never notice it, but big enough to handle most jobs well.

The blade design is amazingly versatile. It doubles as a bottle opener, cheese slicer, box cutter, screwdriver, ice pick, finger nail cleaner and any of about 1,000 other daily chores.

My Gerber Tanto

-S30V black oxide coated stainless steel blade
-Utility tanto tip with partially serrated edge
-Fully automatic blade with oversize blade release button (QUICK operation)
-Hard anodized 6061-T6 machined aluminum handle
-Finger guards
-Pommel with strike point and lanyard hole (a great window breaker or skull crusher)


It is also a gorgeous piece of work. I use it to open boxes, strip wires, cut zip ties, clean my finger nails, peel fruit, cut meat, modify my motorcycle, just about everything. I also have it with me for personal defense. It is sharp, I clean it regularly for smooth operation, and is heavy enough to hold as you throw a punch (think roll of quarters)

I have to go with Gerber. I've carried a Gerber in my pocket for years and beat the crap out of it. It was been used for everything. Opening letters, sharpening sticks or pencils, stripping/cutting wire, slicing an apple, opening a can of beans, you name it. It's not pretty but it gets the job done.

I like a Victorinox Cub Scout knife. A quality medium blade, a quality small blade and that cool scout symbol on the panel. For anything more strenuous I carry a sheath knife.

I constantly use mine to open Beer cans, either full for quick thirst relief or empty cans to use as spit cans. Love that knife

I don't know how good or bad on most people's scale but my everyday pocket knife is an aluminium scale Beretta with the straight blade.
Just a good do everything lock blade.
