EDC Knives

What is an EDC knife?

A pocket knife is a small, folding knife that is designed to be compact and portable, typically small enough to fit in a pocket. An EDC knife has remained an essential role in everyday carry. 

They are commonly used for tasks like cutting, slicing, opening packages, and performing everyday tasks. 

Besides the primary folding knife, people might carry a secondary knife as their additional knife or backup knife. 

While the primary knife is one that an individual relies on for most tasks, the secondary knife serves as a backup or may have a specialized purpose that complements the primary knife's functionality, for example, a small pocket knife with a specialized blade type (such as serrated or partially serrated) can be a great secondary option for specific cutting tasks.


What’s the best knife for EDC among all Vosteed knives?

Best budget knife

We would love to recommend Vosteed Raccoon, which is the most versatile knife in our Vosteed knife collection. The Raccoon presents a drop point blade measuring 3.25 inches. With a blade length and width ratio of 3 to 1, along with a pleasing curve and an ergonomic choil, the Raccoon becomes a superb option for regular everyday carrying.


EDC Flashlight

From searching for items in a dark bag to finding a keyhole in the dark, a flashlight enhances your ability to perform everyday tasks with ease. It also provides a reliable source of light in various situations, such as power outages, dark alleys, or emergencies. 

Many modern flashlights offer different modes, such as adjustable brightness levels, strobe, and SOS signals, making them versatile tools for various situations.

When selecting a flashlight for your EDC, consider factors like size, brightness, battery life, and durability. Compact and powerful flashlight models are available, ensuring you have a reliable source of light wherever you go.



Vosteed Prybar

EDC prybars are compact and designed for everyday carry purposes. They can be useful for tasks like opening packages, tightening screws, or prying small objects. Just make sure to choose one that suits your needs and preferences. I have a few preferences. First, It should be small enough to comfortably fit in your pocket or on a keychain. Secondly, I like them to be made of Titanium to ensure durability and longevity. Last, but not least, it needs to have a comfortable grip and ergonomic shape to make it easier to handle and use the prybar effectively.


EDC Pouch

An EDC (Everyday Carry) pouch is a small bag or pouch that people use to carry essential items they might need throughout the day. These pouches are designed to keep items organized and easily accessible. EDC pouches can vary in size and design, and they can be carried in a pocket, attached to a belt, or placed in a bag. People use EDC pouches to carry items such as keys, wallets, multitools, pens, notepads, flashlights, first aid supplies, and other small everyday necessities.



EDC hanks, short for "Everyday Carry handkerchiefs," serve multiple purposes. They are versatile pieces of fabric that can be carried in your pocket, bag, or attached to your gear. Indeed, it's a common practice among knife enthusiasts and EDC enthusiasts to include a handkerchief (hank) when photographing their knives for social media platforms like Instagram

EDC Hank serves both functional and aesthetic purposes. Placing a handkerchief between the knife and the hand helps prevent accidental scratches on the knife's blade or handle while handling it. A hank can be used to highlight intricate details of the knife, providing a clean and visually appealing background that contrasts with the knife's design.
