Strand & West Titanium EDC Knives

Search for an EDC knife on Archie and you’ll get upwards of a dozen hits (Google produces slightly more). There’s a knife for every situation with focuses on blade shape, locking systems, materials, weight, and even color. QuietCarry’s Strand and West knives employ a minimalist approach to knife design with clean, strong lines, and some of the best materials available. Though each has subtle differences, they’re both designed for discrete, comfortable carry in a package that should last a lifetime. The Strand has a frame lock (locking) and is machined of Grade 5 Titanium with a D2 steel blade. The blade’s length is 2.8-inches while the closed length of the knife is 3.9-inches, making Strand a solid choice when function is as crucial as form. The West option differs in that the blade uses a slip joint design (non-locking) and is slightly smaller at 2.5-inches. The same quality materials found in the Strand make it a light, comfortable blade. Either or compliments an EDC cache regardless of whether you’re going minimalist, light, or utilitarian.
