My go-to traditional EDC is a Case Trapper w/ red bone handles and CV blades. It takes a good edge and stays pretty sharp. The CV blades do take a little more care than SS, but that's not too big of a downside.
I have started carrying a GEC Bull Buster (same size as a sod buster)some and really like it as well. It's another option for those who like Case knives and traditional folders in general.
11 that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, 12 that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing. 1 Thessalonians 4:11,12 NKJV
