How is the pick not a part of your DC?

@MrJameGumb@lemmy.world avatar

Picks come with me when I get ready to leave the house! Otherwise they stay on the shelf next to the guitars while I’m here, otherwise they tend to get lost lol

You might also look at knives with an Axis-lock type system. It’s not identical, but rather than a button press you slide a stud with your finger, so it has the same easy one-handed opening and closing. That used to be limited to Benchmade, but it’s now available pretty much everywhere. I really love my Kershaw Iridium: kershaw.kaiusa.com/iridium.html

A button lock knife is very popular. Many are well under $100. I’d recommend the CJRB Pyrite Alt for a blade shape more similar to a razor. if you want even smaller the Mini Pyrite Alt is a great 5th pocket carry. www.knifecenter.com/kc_new/store_store.html?steel…

you can do the same using any knife with a “button lock”.

most popular knife of the last couple of years has a button lock variation and it’s less than a $100 knivesandtools.com/…/-civivi-elementum-button-loc…

www.milwaukeetool.com/Products/…/48-22-1990Milwaukee makes one, in several sizes and blade shapes even.

I bought one to cut down on waste with disposable blades and it works great for tearing up packaging and boxes. The steel is supposedly pretty soft, but it’s also around 20 bucks depending on size and blade shape.

The non assisted opening mechanism is probably my least favorite thing about the knife, if I’m honest, but it’s not horrible or anything.


oh haha so far that's my favorite part. as much as I love milwaukee I want something fancier

Always been a fan of butterfly knives.


If you don’t know how to use one, make sure you put masking tape on the edge until you’re comfortable with it.

You can buy dull trainers too.


oh yeah that could definetly be an option. thanks


Check local laws, some places ban butterflies by name.


Might be banned as a “balisong”. Lost mine, but I had it in my utility belt to work at camp. Worked well when I had another handful. Takes some practice to get the swing of it down pat.

Bokker makes some knives like that, but I’ve always been partial to flippers like the CRKT M21. Does it need to have an actual button? That might limit your choices a bit.


CRKT knifes with flippers are excellent. The sound of the double lock variants are great fun.

If legal for you to purchase and own (important, these are different distinctions), an automatic knife would be the safest for one handed operation. Anything from the Kershaw Launch line will be bulletproof and have decent steel.

Non-auto non-assisted button locks (the type of knife you asked for) are kind of niche. Kizer makes some decent ones, and Civivi makes the exact razor blade utility knife you’re looking for, but in higher quality and within your budget.

Otherwise I gotta say, if you’re not a current knife enthusiast, look for sales on Benchmade Griptilians (or mini-griptilians). The Axis lock is not exactly a button press but if you want higher quality, it’s a good option.

Just swap out the internals with the clicker from an F702, that’s what I’ve been doing for years.

EDIT: a space

SECOND EDIT: Also put a space pen refill in that sucker, you deserve it. Just make sure to pull the little plastic bit in the tip.

Parker Jotter, hardy and cheap.

fisher space pen?

I’ve been pretty satisfied with the rite in the rain pens. The ink is pretty nice for writing in all conditions. They have a pretty wide variety to choose from.

somewhiteguy, in Mini prybar uses

Being able to pull up or peel something without peeling back your thumb/finger nail is kinda nice. I don’t carry a specific pry-bar, but some things I carry have a pry-bar-esque utility that is super handy.

NoUsernameAvailable, in My EDC as a regular office droid

Does the Ridge key case have keys that rotate out when you’re moving around a lot? My OrbitKey sometimes have the keys slide open. I also don’t want to over tighten.


It had a little spring that holds the keys in place. Everything stays where it’s supposed to be and I didn’t even have to re-tighten it yet.

Looks great, especially with the cigar. I’m in the US, so my preference would need a pistol and a few mags.

I carry often but not everyday so I won’t include it in posts about my edc
