I carry a SE Dragonfly in my front right pocket and a SE Pacific Salt at about 5 o'clock on my waist. I use the Dragonfly more than the Pacific Salt.

The Endura 4, plain edge, with FRN handle is almost always clipped into the extreme right side of my right front jean's pocket.

Image

It is big enough to swing in anger at blackberry vines and such with predictible results: cuts the target and it stays in my hand. I like the black clip, good-sized thumb hole, back lock, texturing on the scales and blade, great steel (VG-10), adjustable pivot, skeletonized liners, strong blade profile, black handle, replaceable clip (heck the entire knife is replaceable) and comfortable reverse grip.

It couldn't fit into my pocket better, be more secure in the pocket or be easier to pull. Its lite weight barely lets me know that it is there (I find myself checking just to make sure). So easy to carry, why not bring it along?

My favrite is my 52100 Mule. But, carrying it can be a hassle, even with a belt mounted sheath. I usually carry my PE Native and my Para.

Why The Urban is the Best EDC I Ever Carried

Postby erix » Wed Jul 08, 2009 4:00 pm

1. It is very lightweight - the lightest spydie I own
2. It rides deep in the pocket - barely visible
3. The wire clip is unobtrusive to the eye - further hides the knife
4. The blade is a big leaf-shaped full flat grind - very useful, easy to maintain
5. The foliage green G10 is a lovely color - matches lots of my clothes
6. Not having a lock makes it as easy to close as it is to open - true one-hand operation

Only one thing I'd change - ZDP-189!
I love Foliage Green G10!

Stretch 2 - Love the design/shape of the knife, FFG is great, perfect size knife IMO, and now that it is offered in black FRN (Blue FRN soon) makes it that much better.

I also sometimes carry
Adventura - Removed the clip and carry it in my back left pocket and i can hardly notice its there, love the look of SS, sleek design, and its comfortable.

Most of the time I carry my Adventura and either Tasman Salt SE or Caly 3 SE. Unless I am on the lake then its just the Tasman

Stretch 2, belt.
Quince Kopa, right pocket.
SS Ladybug on keychain, left pocket.

That should almost be enough to disarm me... :p

I always have a D4 in one pocket or another, and when I'm @ work I carry something bigger to supplement it, either an E4 or my D2 Millie depending on how I'm feeling in the morning.

Cheers.

For me, it usually comes down to the Military and D4 in PE configurations. Close runners up are the Caly 3 in VG-10, C83 Persian and Kris. All the above knives easily handle any cutting chores I may encounter on any given day, feel good in the hand, have great blade steels that take and keep a great edge and feel reassuring in whatever pocket they happen to be riding in. Today, it's my black bladed S30V Millie and my Krein'd D4W. :D

The Caly 3 because it will do every thing I need from day to day. The Rock Salt, the Military, and the Temperance 2 for more arduous tasks.

Endura G-10, carrying a Millie for some time, I realized the Endura was the knife that was "the one" for me. The G-10 version is just the best of the breed.

I've said it before in more detail, but don't overlook the Delica and Endura thinking they are less refined or pedestrian, just because they are the main line knives. They are best sellers for a reason.

The 2 main knives I have been reaching for are my Police 3 and Cricket. I keep my Superhawk in the gun bag and my Military is my work knife.

Ladybug 2, the sheepsfoot ladybug. I have a bunch in case I ever lose my EDc one. I find the point really takes abuse unlike the original Ladybug 1, which I've had several lose their point. The Ladybug 2 also cuts like nobody's business, a reall workhorse for it's size. Also, if push came to shove I think it'd be decent as a backup defense knife, it's serrations are great.

I carry a Terzuola c-15 G-10 handle. Love everything about the knife. Size, weight, looks etc.

At work : Usually I pair up a D2 Para & SE 440V Millie, There's nothing really that this combo cant take on, their light weight, slim carry, easy pocket retrieval, easy one hand opening, glove friendly and especially their steel's edge retention all say "PUT ME TO WORK!"

Weekends: Usually a VG10 Caly Jr, ...although I am prone to afternoon naps on the couch with my Chinook III ( sorta like a grown mans Teddy bear ? :eek: ?)

I never realized until now that the FRN Endura PE has a different grind than the G10 Endura PE.
