I have been EDCing the same knife but in a straight edge for a week or so now. It's a great knife and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a small pocket knife. Great choice.
I stuck a G10 scaled silver and black camo bladed Chinese folder I have that has a shaving sharp blade in my RFP this AM.
Don't know how long it'll HOLD an edge, but it's got one right now!
It's a rather large thing with 3.25" Spearpoint and 8.5" over all.
Rides pretty high out of pocket though.
Here is a pic:
Perhaps you can see why I was drawn to it.
Most of the time my EDC is Kershaw JYDII Composite with STR (@ BladeForums) Low Rider syle clip
Persistence and a Yuna EQ2 with zdp San Mai blade.
Gotta get dressed to go painting and am going to put SOG Twitch II in RFP.
Will almost certainly have 2 or 3 other knives....
I carry a Kershaw Leek during the week and it is my workhorse at work. On the weekends I might pick one of my vintage pocket knives. I have a nice Kbar three blade pocket knife that I picked up at an antique mall recently. Nice bone scales and easy to put a really keen edge on the blades. If I head out to the hills for the weekend, a SAK and fixed blade knife and sheath I made (bought the blade, but did the rest myself)
i put down the benchmade 551 in 440c for my delica 4 waved with foliage green scales in the right front and a sog twitch II or I in the back next to my wallet.
I picked up a Camillus Blaze today from a nearby gun/sports store. I also picked up a SOG Twitch II a couple days ago from a sporting goods store. As far as the assisted aspect of both knives goes, the Camillus blows the SOG away! I also noticed that the Camillus is becoming hard to find especially the one I got. I'm sure if you look hard enough you could still find them but they aren't readily available. The Camillus is a Blaze with a silver, straight edge blade. I'm actually impressed by the spring of the "Robo Power" assist of the Camillus. I'll post a picture when I get a chance.
I always have on me my leatherman c33Lx. It performs great with the tasks I use it for!
Benchmade 710D2. I switched back to it after having a huge revelation. Every knife I have bought since I bought the 710 has been an attempt to replace it. A feeble minded one at that. Because Of the 710, I now have a nice selection of other very nice blades (Spyd. Mil, Para, BM 610 to name a few) but none of them meet the performance of the 710 in my opinion.
To tell the truth I saw a Benchmade 710 in the case at Gander Mountain yesterday and was struck by how elegant and purposefull it looked!
Gonna have to make do with my 553 Tanto as far as Axis Lock goes however.
I have retired the $300 knives and now carry a Caly 3.

Being in the UK I'm limited to sub 3" slipjoint blades for EDC, so right now my EDC pool is:
Svord Peasant Friction folder - reground to just under 3" (occasionally replaces the Byrd Wings Slip-It depending on mood)
SAK Cybertool 34 (carried daily for Work in MaxP EDC Pocket Organiser)
Leatherman Micra (carried daily for Work in MaxP EDC Pocket Organiser)
Byrd Wings Slip-It (my usual daily pocket knife for cutting fruit, opening letters and other light duties)
I also have a spyderco Bug on one set of keys, and a Sog Micron on order to go on the other keys for opening boxes and packaging.
For when I'm out hiking and a locking blade is legally acceptable, then it's a Spyderco Endura VG10
I used to have a Spyderco UKPK and a very nice friction folder by a belgian maker (Deviant11) but financial circumstances forced the sale of both (along with most of my other sharps collection).

I really miss that one - it was a lovely knife.
Right this minute I don't have a knife on me.
But two rather big fixed blades, two SBKs, one self modded old fixed knife and a Byrd Robin G-10 are right here in front of me!
I attached a lanyard to Grandpas old Case camping knife ( sorta like a large SAK ) and it rides in LFP with the lanyard attached to a belt loop.
No other major changes to my work day EDC.
A Zero Tolerance, a Spyderco Endura, and a TDI fixed blade knife. On some days perhaps a Colt Steel Recon Tanto, or a Spyderco Police.
I like knives.

Not my own picture but just received an Buck Mayo Waimea.
What a great EDC knife!
Very small, light, best lockup on a framelock i have seen and very sharp S30V, it's even smaller than i tought but that's not a problem.
