I have had several jobs where I had to break down lots of boxes. (random photo from internet)
What I mean by that is: Do you have a specific task at work or in your daily goings on that is predictable in that you need your EDC for it, or is it simply that you wish to be prepared for what you might need a knife for?
Nathan needs to break down a lot of boxes at work. So he is prepared for that in what he carries. Obviously, I use a knife all the time while guiding, though I have different knives for fishing and EDC. What about you? Do you have a regular task that you need to use your EDC knife for?
