GEN­TLE­MAN’S CARRY

A GUIDE TO EDC BLADES TO AC­CENT YOUR STYLE

Knives Illustrated - - News - BY JIM HENRY

With these five fash­ion­able EDC knives, you will no longer strug­gle to find a blade that merges the lines of class and func­tion.

It's like an end­less sea. Have you no­ticed?

In the last few years, “tac­ti­cal” fold­ers are flood­ing the knife mar­ket. As a re­sult, it doesn't seem there's much tak­ing place with the tried-and-true gen­tle­man's knife. It's al­ways a relief to see a sim­ple, sleek de­sign that you can put in the pocket of your blazer and carry dur­ing the day, open your let­ters with, and even use to cut your steak that evening.

Some­times re­ferred to as “tra­di­tional,” or even as a “dress knife,” this cat­e­gory still has its place bum­bling around in mod­ern pock­ets. These blades don't nec­es­sar­ily have to look like grandad's three-blade Stockman that he kept in his tackle box all those years, but they are defini­tively sim­ple, stylish, and down­right func­tional.

We've tracked down some of the new­est, most hand­some de­signs that are sure to charm the eye of one who ap­pre­ci­ates an in­ter­est­ing, yet ba­sic ap­proach to the clas­sic pock­etknife.
