EDC Knives for Under $50

EDC Knives for Under $50
CRKT Flat Out For the first EDC knife under $50, we have the Flat Out from CRKT. This model is new for 2019 and features a sleek all steel design.

Now it can strike a ferrocerium rod. If it's carbon I stick it in a potato for a few hours to get a good patina on the blade to prevent rust. Read more →
