Spyderco Delica in ZDP-189
Spyderco Delica is a great EDC knife. Just the right size for every day carry. The blade steel ZDP-189 is awesome. Comes Razer sharp from the factory, holds a great edge. The edge can also be polished like a mirror. Wasn't sure if I'd like the color British Racing Green but took a chance on it and I love it. It's a dark green and it looks great. This knife is a favorite in my rotation of EDC knifes.

Godfather of EDC
Its one of the best EDC knives out there, its so lightweight that I can totally forget that Im wearing a knife, the back log is okay, its not my favorite lock but the lock is solid and reliable, there is enough grip on the handles for all EDC tasks I can imagine. The thin blade is a perfect slicer but of course its not a survival knife. Well and ZDP189 is a very very good steel for edge rentention, its harder to sharpen then VG10 but the ZDP189 fits very well to the Delica and Delica's destiny ;-)
