    I have a ZT 0566, which is one of the smallest of their knives, and I personally don't like it for an EDC. It's an awesome knife, but it's too big and heavy.

    The Kershaw Blur S30V is my go to EDC unless I'm wearing shorts or a dress pant, then the Kershaw Leek, much slimmer and lighter.

    Wife has a Kershaw Scallion, frame lock. I'm a big fan of it, smaller then the Blur, but much more study then the Leek.

    Benchmade Mini Grip is worth checking out too.

    Out of curiosity, what do you most often use your knives for?

    I have a Spyderco Delica 4 now, just thought I would upgrade, was looking at the Spyderco Paramilitary 2 and the ZT 0770CF. Can't really put my hands on the ZT as I dont know anywhere local that sells them

    I got the Gerber from my girlfriend as a birthday present ~ten years ago. It's put up with tons of abuse and never let me down.

    I'm not interested in EDCing a big fixed blade unless I'm really roughing it (so never). The Rat 3 offers plenty of knife, but isn't excessively large.

    Wasn't until I started carrying on daily that I realized how useful it is to have one.

    Just replaced my kershaw clash with a kershaw Cyro II and I have a leek for when I want a smaller blade in my pocket.

    Got my brother in law a leatherman rebar for Christmas...loved it so much I had to go get one for myself as well. I've used it a TON working on the garage and around the house so far.

    I don't even notice it. I've carried all kinds of folders over the years, so when I came into a small fixed a few years ago I decided to give it a try. Haven't went back.

    I rotate through. Depends on the day and where I'm going.

    Casual (jeans or shorts) EDC a Kershaw Blur S30V. Around the office, I've been carrying a Gerber LST.

    Considering picking up a few more. Probably going to grab a Kershaw Ember and/or an Opinel at some point in the near future.

    Bought my Opinel in Paris for a wine and cheese picnic in a park near the Eiffel tower so it's got lots of sentimental value to me but it also keeps a great edge. I gave Laguioles to my groomsmen very classy rigs. The French make good knives
