SW3 – Best Outdoor Everyday Carry Knife – Top Quality Canadian Handmade EDC with Spalted Maple


Best outdoor everyday carry knife. Top quality EDC built by Canadian award winning knifemaker. This handmade EDC knife is compact, versatile and very comfortable in the hand.  Features on this drop point blade include a stabilized spalted maple handle, 1 ¼ inches of gimping on the spine, a stonewash finish, black tang liners, a center mosaic pin, a thong hole as well as 24” of paracord to use for transporting the knife or as a lanyard.  The gimping allows better gripping in any position – the stonewash finish allows more aggressive treatment than a smoother finish.

This EDC is constructed with a full tang and fixed blade, making it a stronger and more dependable tool than a folding knife.  Proper tempering and hardening of the ATS-34 stainless steel to RC 60 ensures this EDC will have great edge retention.  Blade is 3.5 inches long and has an extremely sharp edge.  Handle length is 4.5 inches for an OAL of 8 inches.

A handcrafted tooled and welted leather sheath is included with this knife.

For a clip point EDC, have a look at SW4 made from Australian lacewood.
