When you think of an everyday carry knife, chances are you will have a folding knife in mind. But when you absolutely need a knife that cannot and will not fail on you, a fixed blade knife is the best option. Fixed blade knives don’t have any moving parts to break or opening mechanisms to fumble around with when you’re in a rush. Plus, in many jurisdictions, a fixed blade knife might be your only legal carry option. And if you have the idea that folding knives are too big for everyday carry, know that not all of them are built like the comically huge knife in Crocodile Dundee. There are plenty of EDC-friendly fixed blade knives out there, and there’s a great selection of designs released in the past year. In this guide, we’ll round up our favorite recent fixed blade knife releases, and go over why they deserve a place in your own carry.
Two or three of these are on our “Best of 2019” list as well, which will appear in the December issue of Knife Magazine.
