What are Heavy-Duty EDC knives?
Heavy-Duty EDC knives are pocket knives that, because of their construction, are capable of carrying out the more demanding tasks. Think of a plasterer who opens bags of cement every single day: the powder released when the bag is opened won't make your high-tech, ball-bearings pocket knife very happy. Also when you open a lot of boxes a solid knife will often come in handy. Not in the least because cardboard will definitely affect the sharpness of your knife. And yes we are still talking about knives, not crowbars. You still don't use a pocket knife as a screwdriver, when opening paint cans or as a crowbar.
When it concerns Heavy Duty the Benchmade Adamas 275 is a real winner. This knife from the Black Class, for soldiers and other professionals, is one of the most robust pocket knives in our range. It might be a little too big in your pocket which is why it also comes with a solid MOLLE-compatible sheath.Not available€649.00

The CRKT Seismic fits in this top 10 because of its amazing lock. The Deadbolt-lock sticks a hardened steel insert in the blade to keep it open.
