Top 10 fixed EDC knives
In this Top 10 fixed EDC knives we have listed our favourite fixed EDC knives. You could say that a folding knife is by definition defective because it can close. In situations where that really shouldn't be allowed a compact, fixed EDC knife is the answer. These are neck knives, or knives that are designed to be worn in a pocket.
Why would you carry a fixed EDC knife?
First of all, a fixed EDC knife won't just close. Incredibly safe, especially when you know you are about to carry out heavy-duty tasks. But also think of maintenance: a pocket knife with moving parts should always be kept clean. This to ensure the function of the lock and the opening mechanism. In dusty surroundings a fixed knife will therefore be the answer. Another reason to carry a fixed EDC blade could be the law. In some countries you cannot carry a pocket knife, but are able to carry a fixed knife up to a certain length.
What makes a fixed knife a suitable EDC knife?
Of course not every knife is great for EDC use, although opinions sometimes differ. We, however, believe that a fixed EDC knife should easily be carried on a daily basis. With the help of a great sheath or other carrier solution, for instance, or because the knife is so compact and practical you can easily carry it with you. This is mainly a list of knives we believe are suited for the job.
