They are all non-locking and less than 3" long, so you shouldn't need a specific reason for having any of them on you.

Hello all. Thought I'd make this my first post seeming as I'm a UK resident.

My current fav UK legal edc is the imho very underrated Boker W.C. Davis II slipjoint:


The most perfect marriage of modern and traditional in a mass produced slipjoint I've come across. Such a beautiful knife if it wasn't so spendy I'd own another and gift a few more.  I used to carry the execellent Spyderco G10 drop point UKPK but always felt wary using it in front of non-knife folk.  It was almost too practical; great ergos and superb materials; and being easy to open with one hand was a massive plus but that ability and the unconventional design are so unlike the public perception of a 'normal' pen knife over here.  The Boker on the other hand has all the typical cues: nail nick, bolster, narrow blade and 'natural' (green) handle colour.

His faithful companion, the Wenger Evo 17 Soft touch:


This is a great multitool.  My SAK of choice.  Being 85mm this is slightly smaller than the Victorinox starndard 91mm models but this just makes it more pocketable for me.  And I just I love the clip blade. Wish Victorinox would issue knives with it  :pok:


Gratuitous shot:


As for a list of UK edc knives I've experience of:

The Boker WC Davis II (obviously)
Sanrenmu 4110SUX-LZ (excellent oho keychain sized knife- my keyring knife choice)
Sanrenmu 7089SUX-PN (faultless modern oho fingerguard design)
Sanrenmu 4073RUC-LH1 (another excellent oho keychain sized knife)
Sanrenmu 7094STX-PNH-T4 (nightmare grind oho tanto with fingerguard)
Probably mentioned before but added just to break the pattern up ;)..... Victorinox Compact
Spyderco G10 UKPK (excellent quality and ergonomically sublime oho)
Sanrenmu 7112RUC-LH (SAK size pocket scalpel with nail nick)
Sanrenmu 7099SUX-PH-T3 (great ergo's in hand, oho with fingerguard)

No affiliation just a very satisfied customer...

Some SRM loveliness:


And some keychain sized goodness:



Cheers

Hello Moose, welcome to the forum. :hatsoff:

I love the look of the Boker, very classy. 8)  Have you looked at the Byrd Tern as an alternative to the UKPK?

Hi Gareth. Thanks :cheers:.

All except the one second from the bottom (an SRM 7073LUC which is an exceptional small frame lock that I like more than the SRM 710) are non locking.

Yes I've have considered the Tern and guess it'd make a good alternative to the FRN UKPK knives. 
If Sanrenmu scaled up some of their slip joints so that the blades were closer to the 3inch mark (in particular the great little Sanrenmu 4110SUX-LZ) then Byrd and parent company Spyderco would have serious competition on their hands when it comes to the European market for modern oho slip joint knives.

I wish Fallkniven had made a slip joint version of their TK3/TK4 or U2 knives.  These to me are much more distinctive designs ( I've owned a couple of TK4s and love almost everything about them bar the price :pok:

But I guess the LTC is aimed more at buyers who are going to give it as a gift (hence the nice box and the inoffensive SAK  like look) rather then use it personally :-\.

I understand. I like the U2, have abused one for years, but I think I'm gonna get me an LTC as well. I find the slimmer blade very attractive, and the colors too. I will have a green one if I can get it. Also, the LTC is lighter than the U2 (33 grams vs. 42). It's very expensive when compared with a Pioneer Solo though. Must be the premium steel.

The JD van Deventer custom folder.

69mm blade length. N690 blade and G10 scales.

The fit and finish is some of the best I've seen.

Still haven't got an LTC. I've noticed its price has gone up $20 recently, while I was waiting for it to go down!  :(
Current price is $ 100, about twice what I'm willing to pay for it.

Ouch, that's way too much for my taste as well. :(
