Here’s a shot of most of my knife collection as of today. All the fixed-blades have holsters/sheathes. There are others, but they’re either stowed in gear or old family knives. Some of these are EDC—either on my person or in various bags—and others are just nice to haves or kept staged.

I have kept my purchases on the inexpensive side, but I may pick up some nicer ones in the future. We’ll see.

EDC Knife: CRKT Outrage

by Andy Rutledge 0 Comments

This is a knife I recently acquired as an everyday carry. I picked it up for a couple of reasons, including the fact that it’s a Ken Onion design and the fact that the blade belly is interesting and seemingly efficacious. I’ve carried it for a couple of months and really dig the low profile in the pocket (note the clip position) and the ease of opening.

It’s a flipper and the action is very nice. The handle is a textured 6061 aluminum with a 2Cr13 steel liner lock. The blade material is 8Cr13MoV steel and I just love the profile. It feels fantastic in the hand in both directions. Very happy with this purchase.
