    Fixed Blade EDC

    Wondering what others carry. I am looking for a fixed blade 3" to 4" blade for EDC, I was looking at RAT and Dozier and thought I'd see what everyone else was carrying if anything. I have plenty of folders but am looking for a good fixed blade.

    thanks

    I don't carry a fixed blade but if I did I would take a serious look at the ESEE Izula.

    The Izula is one I've been looking pretty hard at. I've also looked at that KaBar, but the angle of the handle looks a little funky to me. I love fixed blade knives, but finding one that is as easy to carry as a folder is kind of a tough order. When I was young I carried a fixed blade about the size of an Izula, and it worked out very well for me for a number of years.

    Ka-bar TDI couldn't be easier to carry. I carry mine strong side appendix and it dissappears.

    Due to bad timing on my part, I just missed out on being able to purchase a Cold Steel Kobun. That would be my choice for a fixed blade. The Ti-Lite, however, has proven itself to be a solid companion. A fixed blade offers unbreakable strength and is always "open" so on the draw it's ready for action.

    EDC knives, as with firearms, require some thought and you can't have everything. A solid folder can be just 6 inches in length closed, but it gives you a foot-long weapon when deployed. This is a serious tool.

    I have found the Spyderco Street Beat to be the best all-around small fixed blade knife I have come into contact with at any price point. Top-notch steel, excellent fit and finish, phenomenal ergonomics that work in every grip type I've tried including inverted-edge methods, excellent customer service from the maker, and it's absolutely gorgeous. You can wear this knife in everything from your grungiest t-shirt and shorts with flip-flops to your best three-piece suit and it won't look out of place in your hand. A serious tool by a serious knifemaker at a seriously low pricepoint if you look around.

    You won't be disappointed, I promise...

    Take a look at the Lone Wolf Trailmate. It comes with a nice horizontal (leather) sheath and is a very well made knife.

    Another vote for the Ka-Bar TDI but mine is straight edge.

    I appreciate the replies folks. I went digging around a couple of knife sights and ordered a Tops Shadow Tracker, but I really like the looks of the Lone Wolf Trailmate, may have to get that one as well.

    Thanks

    if you are looking for a mostly SD blade take a look at the kalista from blackhawk! i carry this knife as a neck knife when i just have a t shirt on or any other shirt for that matter that i dont have tucked in! i carry it on a neck chain! it is so flat that it just disappears under a t shirt!! it is a awsome cutter! it has been my reg fix blade knife for a while now! but that will change when my calfornia cobra arrives from tops!! the one i like the best will be my fixed edc!

    ^^^^^^^

    Strong side Kidney... also dissapears, I prefer the straight edge though... no serrations for me.
