In addition to functionality that is a must for urban use, there is a number of important aspects to consider:
First – material of high quality. Now the market is flooded with relatively unexpensive pieces from East Asia. But they lack advantages except the price and an attractive design. More often they cannot retain the edge, rust pretty quickly and chip. Why? – Due to cheap materials and lack of hardening. Such a piece will be suitable only for pencil sharpening and potatoes peeling. It won`t be able to withstand more or less heavy loads and soon it will fail.
The second aspect is a knife for a city should be comfortable for everyday carry. In other words, sheath and fasteners are required to retain it securely. You must agree how unpleasant it may feel to lose things in a public transport or walking in the park.
We have designed usable keen edges sheath with a clip. It can be attached to the belt and do not disturb while walking or running. Also there are special eyelets for additional fastening with a cord or paracord.
Moreover, we are launching a new production of wet-type sheath. It is even more convenient and practical. It is specially designed to ensure fast user’s reach to the knife providing a secure mounting at the same time.
Thirdly, all EDC models are developed by experts of knife fight, champions and prize-winners of many competitions. These knives feel great in your hand and are convenient to use. They feature an easy-grip handle that is rare for the so-called “civil” models. Blade shapes and sharpening angle are optimal for each model.

Folding or urban (EDC) knife with a fixed blade?
Customers are often interested why we produce EDC knives with a fixed blade, as at first glance folding ones seem to be more convenient. We can agree, but only to some extent. We prefer fixed knives for several reasons:
1. Folding knife is vulnerable at connection points. Even high quality branded models can brake, get loose and being actively used become unusable.
2. It is known that a folding knife can jam in a crucial moment. Unsafe design can cause big trouble.
3. Folding EDC knife for daily carry is not suitable for use in gloves, so in winter you will need extra time to take off mittens, to extract the knife and open it.
Sometimes time is not only money, but also life.
We choose reliability and functionality, that is why we prefer full tang fixed knives made of one piece of steel with a full tang.
