    Does anyone carry a small fixed blade knife for EDC? I find them handier than a folder. If you do post a picture.

    The only reason I’m not carrying my Bluegill is because I have my EO1 EDC on me. Today is a Bluegill day at the office.

    I carry my Hurley Creek with me pretty much every day. It’s so slim I barely know it’s there.

    I’m hoping to debut my newest EDC models later in December, and include them in my January Sale.

    I can't wait to see your new design, I don't own your bluegill or EO1 but they look like a great EDC

    Living in Texas I can't carry a fixed blade often in the summer heat when wearing shorts but I do edc when the temp drops.
    Here's a pic of a plain jane small fixed blade green micarta, 3" blade with about 2 3/4" sharpen edge, great little worker but plain with a rough spine, a swedge would have made it nicer.
    With the sheath pictured I can carry front or rear jean pocket or in my jacket, when needed I slap on the belt sheath.

    sorry for the inside shop pic and if I'm outline posting another brand please let me know I'll take it down

    I carry this one every day, usually partnered with a small folder.

    I like small fixed blades, but the folder still get most of the work. I want to see how horizontal carry will do for the fixed blade.

    What model is the fixed blade and how do you carry it?

    I think that’s one he made it himself in one of my knifemaking classes.

    John is right. I made it at one of John’s knife making classes, which I really enjoyed and the knife has become a daily user.

    This is the knife. It’s not much to look at but it handles all sorts of small tasks and takes a beating and is easily cleaned up and kept sharp thanks to Johns excellent heat treat.

    I carry it in a small Kydex sheath horizontally for cross draw.

    Not much to look at? That may be the closest thing I have seen to a perfect knife!

    Lol!

    Thanks! John made the same model for the class demo and I’m happy to send him the pattern and he can make you another for yourself.

    It’s actually very close to my old Bushcrafter model.
