I really wish I could EDC a fixed blade.. I work in a big commercial kitchen at a local High School and my EDC Benchmade mini-griptillian, is already pushing it as far as rule bending.. Since I do work in the kitchen it usually isn't a problem.. It see's daily use.. I have quite a few small necker/EDC style fixed blades and do carry them a lot on the weekends and during the summer, when I am off..
