    EDC knife for women

    Hey all I was wondering what you ( if you are female) or your wife or girlfriends, moms, sisters, aunts, daughters or whoever is a close female to you carry as far as an EDC knife.



    My wife carries a Boker Plus G4 when she wears jeans and usually has a Magnum ( I forget the model even though I gave it to her lol ) in her purse and a SW cheapy in her console.

    Any one have any others. I want to find her a nice GOOD high quality knife but she likes them really thin and light. Suggestions welcome.

    Thanks

    btw I rock a SOG flash 2 and a pentagon elite 1 just as a side note.

    My wife carries a Gerber lock blade folder, she carries it as a back up to her P3AT. She has worked with it some but needs to work with it more.

    Spyderco Endura 4 or Delica 4 with FRN scales. Flat, thin, lightweight, high quality, reasonably priced.

    It's not cheap, but the Benchmade Kulgera is one of the lightest and thinnest knives that Ive seen. Great handle shape and material. It's my EDC.

    Hmmm, I wasn't aware that there were any significant gender-based differences in knife selection. Live and learn, I guess!

    My favorite knife is a Benchmade Griptilian. I've got the larger version with the half & half blade, but wish I'd opted for the smooth blade instead. Just don't need the serrations often enough to make the extra honing work worth it.

    For EDC, the Leek. There's a lot of varieties, varying price points, some pretty ones, some high-quality ones. Thin and light and cuts like a razor.

    It's not for self-defense, though. Blade's too thin.

    It's fixed blade, but I'll throw it out there, because a) I have one b) it's made in USA and c) you can get it in pink..
    .
    Rat Izula

    mines not pink.

    There's a vid out there somewhere of a guy roughly whittling his way through a 4 x 4 in about 5 minutes, and right after, it's still able to shave his arm-hair.

    This little knife has a big heart for sure.

    - I second that. A metal handle is definitely not my preferred material for self defense.

    I have been looking at some knife fighting and different schools of thought on knife arts, and have never heard much about a preferred handle for SD is that because of how slick it can get or is it a bend factor? Most SD situations are not gonna be a clank clank spark spark knife fight, it will be cut or be cut, can you inform me, I am not being arrogant just ignorant to that thought

    - In my experience, the metal is simply too slick to get a good grip on, especially on impact. I have a Kershaw Leek and feel it slipping when I am using it for simple tasks. I really like the knife and love the opening action, but it's not something I would want to use for SD.

    This is especially noticeable when holding a knife like a Spyderco or a knife with a G10 handle or inserts. There is a G10 version of the Leek, but I've actually never tried using it. I'm sure it would be fine though.

    Another reason I'm a fan of the Benchmade Kulgera is the Axis locking mechanism. It's extremely easy to "flip" the knife open and it is an extremely strong lock. Liner locks can be strong, but it's not even close.

    I have carried MANY a knife and PAX is right.. I wasn't aware there was a gender specification.

    I'm a female and prefer fixed blades though I often carry folders.

    My favorites are as follows:
    Ka-Bar TDI
    Cold Steel Ti-Lite
    Kershaw Chive
    and several other no-name folders more for utility purposes than anything else

    My husband just made me aware of a fixed blade mini tanto made by Cold Steel that he bought me and if it had a better sheath I'd carry that in a heart-beat.
