Most people face a range of tasks on a day to day basis that involves cutting something. Boxes, tape, a piece of string, the items are endless, and the tools we use aren’t usually up for the task. That’s why Off-Grid Knives has everyday carry folding knives for sale.
What Does Everyday Carry Mean?
An everyday carry, or EDC, is the term for your go-to knife. It’s the one you carry with you, either in your pocket, at your belt, or even around your neck. While some people do use a fixed blade for their everyday carry, those are usually for people working in high-intensity places, like the docks, in the military, or outdoors.
An EDC knife should be sturdy, long-lasting, and able to stand a lot of wear and tear. Having something that doesn’t need to be sharpened on a daily basis is ideal for most folks, so better quality everyday carry knives will be made out of better steel.
Why Choose a Folding Knife
Folding knives are perfect as an everyday carry simply because they’re so packable. A fixed blade knife will need a sheath, and must usually be carried on the belt or around the neck. A folding knife, however, has its edge safely covered by the handle and can be easily tucked into a pocket, ready for whenever you need it.
Folding knives can be manually opened, or they can have an assisted open, with either thumb studs or a flipper, perfect for use one-handed. It should be noted that not all assisted open knives are created equal. If you’re left-handed, check and make sure you can open it with your preferred hand.
