There are a number of excellent folding knife options available today. I prefer and advocate the carry of a small fixed blade for a number of reasons which, if you have been to one of our knife classes, you have heard. Regardless, the run-of-the-mill folding knife can be improved for Everyday Carry (EDC) in a number of ways. I wrote this article for the personal defense network in 2011. Since I have been doing so many knife classes over the last couple of months I thought I would re-post this for anyone who hasn’t seen it. I hope you find something useful in it.
