“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” Albert Pike
Strider PT is current "EDC" general use blade. I have the SNG CC and SMF in case I need something bigger. I generally pick EDCs in pairs or triples, small to large versions but similar designs - but only carry one at a time normally.
Previous to these, EDCs included: Emerson CQC-7, 10 and 15, Benchmade Dejavoo & Mini Dejavoo, Spyderco Sage and Military, Benchmade 707, 943 and 710, Benchmade Barrage and Mini Barrage, Buck Vantage, Boker Hyper, CRKT M16-12Z... the list goes on and on...
I still carry the Spyderco Military alot, it is a nice, light, large knife at a reasonable price - one of my favorites. I also still use the CQC-10 and Mini Dejavoo a decent amount. The Buck Vantage is one of my favorite "beater" knives.

Spyderco Stretch ZDP-189 Carbon Fiber. Wicked sharp and retains the edge a very long time. Very comfortable to carry and use.
For travel to more restrictive areas, I substitute either a Spyderco Terzuola SLIPIT or Leaf Storm depending on the local restrictions. Both are high-quality, sharp tools with S30v blades.
All three of these open the same, fast way with the Spydie hole, so switching between all three is a non-event.

Do you that carry an EDC knive use it .
My SOG I got for Christmas is an EDC but is a flesh only knive.

It's a lock back (I don't really in my gut trust liner locks not to fold on my fingers), with an ergonomic handle and a stout half serrated blade.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
I always have a Kershaw Leek in my pocket. I usually carry either a Spyderco Endura with the wave feature, or a Bechmade Model 42 butterfly knife along with it.
I'm jealous of all of you who get to carry autos! My Gerber 06 Auto has been resigned to nightstand duty since I can't carry it here in CO. So for now my EDC is a Spyderco Tenacious.
