What Makes an EDC Knife Good for Food Prep?

There’s no shortage of uses for your EDC knife. Sometimes, you'll need it to pull food prep duty when you’re out and about, whereas at home you’d probably just grab something from the kitchen drawer. Sure, your EDC knife can slice up an apple, cut a sandwich, and open up a stubborn bag of chips, but a specialized tool is better for the job. Think about it: you wouldn’t use a 2” tanto blade for peeling and slicing up a piece of fruit. The same goes for in the kitchen. There are many different knife types that are designed for specific tasks — and for good reason. In this guide, we’ll show you what to look for in an EDC blade that makes it great for food prep and then compare it to their kitchen counterparts that take it to the next level.
