i need a good edc knife
What length? Is it for defense or hard use? And what is the top price you want to pay?
Here's the one I own and used to carry in my Army days during field training exercises and deployments. http://www.sportsauthority.com/produ...LAID=409151161I really like this knife.

The Schrade Sharpfinger is a pretty good knife on the low cost scale. The factory sheath sucks big-time for potential SD deployment, but there are plenty of decent kydex benders that can fix that.
I collect , cant stop. My opinion to you is if I could only buy ONE fixed blade EDC knife for a lifetime it would be a Busse Combat knife.
The Seal Pup is awesome as well I have 1 with the plain edge.
For a solid fixed blade knife from 3" to 4" in length and up to $100, I recommend the following knives:
- Böker MPT Plus (3.75" blade - Approx. Value $38.00)
- Ka-Bar TDI Law Enforcemet (2.5" to 3.5" blade - Approx. Value $40.00)
- Ka-Bar Becker Necker Knife (3.25" blade - Approx. Value $30.00)
- CRKT AG Russel Sting (3.2" blade - Approx. Value $30.00)
- Smith & Wesson HRT Boot Knife (3.87" blade - Approx. Value $25.00)
- SOG Seal Pup (4.85" blade - Approx. Value $75.00)
- Cold Steel Safe Maker II (3.5" blade - Approx. Value $45.00)
If you are looking for a fixed blade knife for concealed carry, then I would take a closer look at the Böker MPT Plus, the Ka-Bar TDI, the SOG Seal Pup and the Ka-Bar Becker Necker. If you want something larger and for tough use (not worrying to beat them up), then look at knives made by Cold Steel, CRKT, Buck and Smith & Wesson which offer a tremendous value. I own several of these models I recommend.

Also checked out the the Ezula link, good looking knife that fits the fixed/neck carry mode, nice drop point.

Id look at a Benchmade Rant fixed blade or a Benchmade Nim Cub II. Cub is alittle more at $114 from the Blade shop.

I have researched this alot in last several months. Reviews of end users vs bang for the buck, the ESEE line gets my vote. Best prices I have found are here...

The SOG Mini Pentagon is an excellent, small, fixed blade carry and certainly meets the OP's initial specifications in terms of size and price. SOG products are hard to beat.
