Was wondering what EDC knife to people bring everyday?

I've been carrying a Kershaw Echelon the last 4 months religiously. Here isn't bad pic I found online I don't have a pic of mine. I don't really take pics of well anything.

My old EDC was a Kershaw 1830 OSO Sweet Knife think it was AUS6A steel. I keep it in my back pack now.

A Kershaw Leek. It takes a sufficient edge and it's incredibly quick out of my pocket. I grabbed it cheap from a secondary source.

The Leek is a nice knife, I've had three or four, but too many negatives from my perspective to recommend. Not that its a bad knife or anything. But for the same money you could get a China made Spyderco that is other than weight is superior.

pjwoolw which spyderco do you EDC? The tenacious or the delica or other?

I use it mostly for inner city computer tech type of things. No woods or outdoor stuff or anything crazy along those lines. I am partial to G10 handles on my EDC. Steel I'm not really into as much on my EDC as my kitchen knives. As long as its fairly decent then i'm ok with it. I know some people will spend $500 on like a Sv90 or BG42 or something, I would rather spend that in the kitchen.

I do like Kershaw speed knives and flippers I guess too.

Currently I carry the Delica and Dragonfly in ZDP-189. The VG-10 knives are pretty good too along with AS versions. But all in all I like the ZDP versions best.

SOG twitch is a good daily beater. Any OTF type preferred for quickest access, retraction, and most safety.

I do like the SOG Twitch 2 XL with the Rosewood handles. I mean a flipper with wooden scales how cool is that. ZDP Delica very nice. Black handle or color variety? Think my next one was going to be the Kershaw Piston but after pjwoolw mentioned Spyderco I did see a thread on here about spyderco edc's so I will have to read that next and look into them.

Opinel Nr 8 "au carbone". Here together with a stainless Nr 9. The carbons come with a soft XC90 blade, the stainless with a Sandvik 12C27mod one. Both with the most horrible OOTB edge I've ever seen, but the grinding is OK.

If you want suggestions, both the best pocket knife I've ever used and that I own are Benchmades. Pretty expensive, though, at least $80 for a decent model I believe. I carry a Leek because it was dirt cheap, comes out fast, opens a box as quickly as any pocket knife I've ever owned, and won't cause me to lose sleep if it's lost or broken.
