It really is personal choice, but dollar for dollar, sub $200 I'd go for DPX hest folders. It is the best edc in my opinion, and I have collected
almost every brand made, and a quite a few customs. They have a bottle opener on the back of the blade that catches your pocket and it is faster than
any auto made, without the spring beating up the stop until the blade is loose.
If cash isn't an issue, I'd go for Strider folders.
Elmax powdered steel is the hot new blade out there. The molecules in the powered steel are much smaller vs normal steels, so they sharpen down to a
scalpel sharp edge, and is used to make scalpels. Zero Tolerance is using this steel quite a bit now.
I don't use my edc for protection, but I do use it constantly for work, so I torture test the crap out of all these blades
If you need a home defense, or you are going to be in the military, and put your life on the line, skip the folder and go for the best... they have a
2 year wait list, but you can find some around the net, if you search hard enough.
