I carry a cheap winchester folder and a Leatherman Wave for the everyday cutting tasks. My Ka-Bar TDI Law Enforcement is my defensive EDC, and have yet to cut anything with it.

SOG Pentagon Elite I, for everything and regularly sharpened with DMT equipment. Original A.G. Russell Sting is single purpose only.
G26 is now my constant companion.
Aside from my folder, I just added a new knife to the collection. The KA-BAR/TDI Law Enforcement.
Seems like a good defensive tool not just for weapon retention but also when CC isn't possible. The clip can be moved to either side of the sheath so it can be worn with the sheath behind the belt, right or left hand draw and also blade up or down (reverse grip) in the hand. You could punch with this in your hand and not lose your grip at all. It's faster to present than a folder that's for sure!
Not bad for about $32.00

I had a chance to hold a TDI a few times but prefer the feel of the Spyderco Swick series (which I have never required a band-aid for, btw). You can get the S30V Swick 2 for $53 including shipping and there are any number of great kydex guys out there who will make you a great sheath for it.
I use to be a Smoky Mountain Knife Works customer till I found Knife Cave - Fantasy Collectibles, Medieval Swords, Knives and More were I found my EDC knife.
Smoky Mountain Knife Work now has a fantasy site call Knife Cave. I was at SMKW last month and seen the Knife Cave.
Later I went home and found this knife on there site.

I love my New SOG and how fast I got it. I would checkout Knife Cave - Fantasy Collectibles, Medieval Swords, Knives and More if you have not seen it.

Just picked up my Delica 4 out of the drawer the other day. I really like it, I have not carried it much but now I think I will be carrying in place of my flash 2 for a while, it sits opposite my trident folder. I may even add another delica or 2. Thinking about the delica with a wave and a plain edge as well.

Spyderco Endura Wave and Delica Wave. Kershaw Blur for chores. KaBar TDI for fixed blade and weapon retention.
Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.
