EDC question

The SKX007 was my gateway to the watch world. What is the knife equivalent?

I鈥檇 take a look at Civivi maybe the Elementum line or the CRKT Squid is a nice simple option.

I'd recommend looking at a Spyderco Paramilitary 2 or a Paramilitary 3 depending on your size preferences.

Spyderco Tenacious.

Because usually you either buy it at Wally World, or it's a part of those Christmas Gerber all-in-one sets you get growing up....IFYKYK.

Or some flavor of Spyderco as ones first "nice" knife.

Benchmade Griptilian, Spyderco , coldsteel,

Benchmade Griptilian, Spyderco , coldsteel,

If you want Asian this one is a nod to old Americana and is legal in most states. 154 cm steel is an incredible low maintenance but hard enough for any job that size. That鈥檚 exactly how people describe the skx馃ゴ

Swiss Army Knife

I don't know specific models, but I suspect many in North America start with Gerber, Buck, Kershaw, CRKT, or some version of a Swiss army knife.

When people start getting more "serious" they seem to go Spyderco, Benchmade, etc..

Spyderco Delica would be the equivalent to an SKX imo. At one time it was the entry point to a legitimate diver/pocket knife but it鈥檚 now outclassed by modern options.

Spyderco Delica or Endura
