DYNAMIC EDC DUO

VETERAN-PRODUCED WILMONT KNIVES— MADE FOR DAILY WEAR

There is strength in solid steel.

A good friend and fellow writer has always preferred fixed-blade knives for everyday carry as well as field use, and he describes folders as “pre-broken knives.” While I’ll admit, I do normally carry a folder and don’t feel as strongly about the issue as he does, I have to concede he has a point. A fixed blade is never going to have a lock failure and is inherently stronger than a folder.

With that said, I’m not toting a bowie with me everywhere I go, so if I do EDC a fixed blade it needs to be something manageable.

Wilmont Knives makes a couple of very nice 4-inch-bladed models, but the niche that interested me was its smaller EDC models with blades in the 2- to 3-inch range—as well as some nifty beer opening EDC gadgets. When I approached Chris Williams (owner of Wilmont Knives) with the idea of an article on some of his EDC blades, he hooked me up with two of his neck knives—the K25 and Ultralight Necker— and a variety of his EDC gadgets.

Let’s take a look at the K25 and Ultralight Necker in more detail.

Above: The K25 is only 6 inches in overall length, from tip to tail, and weighs in at just under 3 ounces with a 2.75-inch blade of Crucible CRU-WEAR tool steel, treated to a 62 Rockwell Hardness. It has clean organic lines with all of the hard corners knocked off, to increase comfort and eliminate hot spots.
