Default Favorite EDC steel

Now now before y'all roll your eyes and say wow man haven't we all seem this same kind of thread before let me out a spin on it... I don't want to know what steel you think is better because of its this and that level or percentage. I want to know I you had to choose one knife to use for everything ( prying, cutting, screwdriver, fire starter, SD or whatever what is the steel you trust to not let you down. Ill tell you straight up mine has to be 8cr13mov from spyderco

14c28n as executed by Kershaw if cheap steels are the game... most of the knives in own are in the 8cr13mov or variations of AUS8 but the 14c28n has given me way better performance than any of the others... now higher end I like CPM S30V but its pricey enough I don't own anything with that blade steel...

Hey knife experts!! I'm looking at this knife as my EDC. It's just going to be a normal carry nothing special. My current knife is falling apart.

I don't know all the specs on this knife but ill tell you what I look for in an EDC blade. I like tip up carry, G10 scales with strong liner steel. I like lock back or liner lock but prefer liner and the steel must be tough. I dislike the harder steels as I use my knife for almost everything. 8cr13mov or AUS 8 is where I like to stay and I don't care what any of the steel snobs say lol. Make sure it's stainless steel and its easy to take apart as you will want to clean it once a month at least.

I carry 154cm it's a benchmade auto.
I do not use any knife as a screwdriver or a prybar. I use the proper tool for the proper job. I use it for cutting and that's it.

That's a good EDC steel. And I always think to myself " what if I get into a situation where I need to pry and this knife is all I got. Or I simply want don't have any other tools on hand for a high priority task like for instance auto repair on the go I want to make sure my knife can handle light miss use. I think IMO that not having the strongest and most well made knife you can afford on you is an error. But I am an A hole as some other members would agree lol. Anyway that's a fine knife and a good price. Here's a picture of my baby I EDC
