I carried a late '90s full size, non-skeletonized, partially serrated, Gerber EZ Out for well over a decade, except for a ~18 month period that I had lost
the EZ Out. Still my favorite EDC knife.
During the Gerber EZ Out's hiatus I carried a CRKT Drifter that I got as groomsman's gift.
I miraculously found the Gerber EZ out under the driver seat of my Jeep, and went back to carrying it mostly full time. I'd occasionally grab the CRKT, but usually it was the Gerber.
Then I got a laser engraved Kershaw Ken Onion Leek as another groomsman's gift, and thought it was time to retire the trusty old Gerber EZ Out.
I carried the Kershaw for a couple years, and lost the damn thing. I wasn't wild about the super pointy blade, but it kept an edge well.
I considered going back to my trusty EZ Out or the Drifter, but decided to get something I wouldn't be too upset about losing. I bought a cheap, partially serrated, Gerber EVO Jr. on Amazon. I think it was $14 and has been my EDC for about 3 years now.
Somehow I've managed to keep up with the EVO Jr.
You'll notice I like partially serrated, I know it's not for everyone, but I sure find it handy for sawing and stripping wires.
