    When you do find the one Perfect EDC, let me know or better yet start a thread. Because, there are a number of us BFC members who keep throwing our money at knives looking for the perfect knife.
    But really, that is half the fun, isn't it.
    Ha! To be honest, I carry a Para 2, a customized carbon steel Opinel #8, and a Leatherman Wave in a pouch. So I'd venture to say the perfect EDC is however many knives you can comfortably carry!

    I think some are confused and im not only responding to you.

    The OP asked for an opinion of a Traditional knife brand.

    The Case knife I referred to is part of their "working mans series"

    I was not implying these are suited for every modern working man ( or woman). The name and pattern refers to a style of knife used for years by working men.
    I know the benefits of one handed openers, this working man owns about 100 of them....

    Good choice... not to confuse you, but when you start shopping for a sod buster, check out the AG Russell Rancher and Cowboy knives. He designed a sod buster style knife with a wider blade.

    * note.. not all Ranchers and Cowboys use these.

    Actually, the Case knife you referred to has been around a long time. The Workman handle material seems to be a pretty recent addition, in 2010. And you did say "you can't get more of a working man's knife than that" to which I posed the problem with gloves, so...
    * note.. not all Ranchers and Cowboys use these.
    ...no need to get snarky. I was simply providing a more useful alternative to what I consider beautiful but antiquated classics.

    What I said was a pun on the name Case gave the series, I actully own one and I know the history of the slimline trapper. I forgot I wasn't posting in the Traditional Forum

    If the OP asked whether we thought Traditional knives were antiquated, I would have said yes they're only good for cutting things....

    I agree, come on over to the traditional section. Plenty of men and women that have done a day or two of work with their knives.
