Well THAT'S pretty bitchin...

My EDC is Opinel #7 - it works for just about everything.
I keep one in a few pairs of jeans that never get washed and one in the car. They fit the hand great, they're clean and neat, sharp, classic simple design, and they wear beautifully ...










and they're only 10 bucks

My EDC knife, an old Buck Hunting 110 folder. The handles are chipped and cracked, it's heavy and stout and I have carried it on or near me since it was a birthday present in '67, I was 8yrs old.

Chinese SAMs Club 10 pack for $15 about 6 years ago. Much better than the fancier similar models at HD or Lowes.

Just out of curiosity, why would you need 10 of them?

I have a cutter I bought at HD or Lowes, but if it gets dull I just swap out the blade, which costs pennies.

I always have my Leatherman Wave (current model) with me, so that's what I use.

Pro-tip: Leatherman's warranty is great; my old knife started sticking, sent it back and the didn't just clean it, they sent me an entirely new modern version.

I've pretty much had a pocket knife on me since I was maybe six or seven.
I just have whatever knife is in my pocket when I brew.

I do use scissors more than a knife when brewing though.
