EDC is my go everywhere and do everything knife. About once a month, though, I will change scales or switch between the EDC2 and EDC3.
Thank you !There's DEK1's for sale here on the forum probably every week. You can also ask if anyone has one that they would part with on CPK - Buy, Sell, or trade thread. It's the top sticky thread.
Of course, I can well imagine that any one might be considered indispensable for one reason or another...but which is the one truly indispensable CPK in your collection...whether for its broad utility or simply because it resonates so strongly with you?
As a relative newcomer to the faithful, I'm curious what the old hands have to say in this regard. (Besides, I'll enjoy seeing your picks.)
One knife. No cheating.
Nobody said it would be easy.
Well, now that my (current) set of five knives is at hand...the one thing I can say is that the HDFK and the DEK1 are the best balanced of the five...to the point where they feel almost weightless. (The five being EDC2, DEK1, FK2, Kephart, HDFK.)
This is especially eye opening in the case of the HDFK, which at 12 plus ounces is no shrinking violet, yet still feels as good, if not better than the DEK1 to me. (Mileage will vary greatly here...especially dependent on use. The DEK1 is certainly lighter and more nimble.)
Plus, the HDFK has hands down the best edge of any of the five...slicing phone book paper the cleanest of them all in both directions.
It's making a strong statement as contender for king of the hill. Not sentimental favorite, perhaps, but the one I would probably be most reluctant to be without.

Of course. Believe me, I enjoy laughing at myself as much as everyone else does.Hope ya know i was just funnin'.
Your original goal, while noble and laudable, was utterly impossible for the CPKphiles here.
