EDC pocket knives buying guide by size: what size EDC pocket knife do I need?
EDC knives come in all shapes and sizes. If you know what size your ideal EDC knife should be, finding the right knife becomes a little easier. We've made a list of the most common sizes, based on blade length.
I'm looking for a small EDC knife
A small EDC knife is a great choice on many fronts. At this size, they often look friendly and don't come across as offensive. And you can easily put them in your jacket pocket, handbag or even the coin pocket of your trousers. Sometimes, less is more!
I'm looking for a medium EDC knife
A medium EDC knife has a blade length between 6 and 9 cm. This size is seen by many users as the perfect format for an EDC pocket knife. Small enough for precision work and large enough to handle large cutting tasks as well. No wonder you'll find most EDC knives in this size range!
I'm looking for a large EDC knife
Bigger is better! That is, if the two above-mentioned sizes don't meet your needs. A large EDC knife has a blade length of 9 cm or more. Suitable for the toughest cutting tasks, and for people who have large hands or who wear gloves while they work.
