    Just between bm and spydy, probably a bm strkyer.

    All time in that price range would be an Al Mar Falcon UL, no question. The falcon is with me every day regardless of whatever I'm doing or other knives I'm carrying.

    Your EDC needs may be different than mine but if I had it to do over again I still would pick an Axis Lock knife for my folders.

    I also would pick a two or three knife set to rotate through depending upon my needs.

    For a super lightweight knife, my first choice is the Benchmade Bugout. Great blade shape, decent steel and super light at 1.8oz.
    My second lightweight choice is Benchmade's 531. That is what I carry most of the time. I almost bought the Bugout. It really is a better knife than the 531.

    For a medium duty knife, I would be tempted to go with a Ritter Griptilian in M390 steel or an Adamas folder in D2 steel.
    The Ritter is my first choice out of the two listed. It is in my mind, a better EDC. Right now I have a Benchmade 551 in D2 steel.
    It is a tradeoff between the two.

    So, there you have it. My first two choices, the Bugout and the Ritter Griptilian. Others that I would consider from Benchmade would be the Stryker/Mini-Stryker, the Valet, and the 484. Also, the Volli is nice. I have one of those. It is part of the reason I did not buy the Bugout.

    For a third knife (if needed) I would consider a SAK Alox of some sort. Pioneer/Farmer or the Cadet. It gives you a small, inexpensive knife suitable for travel or formal occasions.

    Of course, you could go with a fixed blade for your third knife. That would be fun.

    A knife from Golden Colorado USA Earth. Impossible to say which, but I'd be happy with any of them. :)

    I really like my PM2's and Militaries. They are fun to play with and good for hard cutting, but nothing beats a Delica for EDC. I could buy 3 of them for the price point mentioned!

    It's a Hinderer XM-18, with a 3 1/2" Harp Spanto blade.

    Neither one.
    My EDC is a major USA made brand and model that costs under $30.00 new.

    I have owned and carried most of the usual suspects. I always come back to the Spyderco Delica. While not cheap, it's not too big or too expensive, and is good for almost everything I do.
