Our 5 Favorite Knives from Quiet Carry

It can be a bit too easy to make the assumption that there’s a trade off between hard-use, practical EDC knife designs and pocket knives with pleasing aesthetics. The truth is that these two qualities are not mutually exclusive, and you can find designs that accomplish both aims, and few knife manufacturers make this point so clearly as Quiet Carry does. They specialize in making quality everyday carry knives with attention to detail, premium materials, and a touch of class. But lest you think these are knives meant to be coddled and put away in a display case, each one has a practical design that makes them well-suited for big tasks. If you aren’t familiar with what Quiet Carry has to offer, in this guide we round up their strongest offerings that you can buy right now and make a case for their place in your EDC.

The iQ

This is the discreet iQ, a slim and compact modern gents’ knife with a 3D-machined stonewashed titanium frame that’s both lightweight at 2.2 oz and durable with a reliable frame lock. The iQ has a modified sheepsfoot style blade that makes it versatile for all forms of daily tasks, with a 2.9" flat ground plain edge that has great chopping characteristics while keeping enough of a belly to make it good at slicing. A sharp tip that lets it pierce through rough material as well. The blade itself is available in your choice of super-premium ELMAX or CPM-20CV stainless steel, and deployment is made easy with its one-handed flipper tab opening with ceramic ball bearings at the pivot.

If you’re a fan of G10 handle grips on EDC knvies but you don’t like the overly-tactical design bent they usually come with, the EDDY knife is for you. The EDDY features a slim, compact, and minimal design with a manual right-handed eye-hole opening and a well-rounded 2.45" flat ground clip-point blade secured with a liner lock that will serve you well with any task you have in mind. If you plan on rougher use, you can get the EDDY with partial serrations that let you saw through rough materials like wood and thick rope on a regular basis. The knife is available in premium CPM-20CV stainless steel or LC200N steel that’s been formulated for extreme rust resistance.  Choose the LC200N blade with the hook shaper and make this little worker your go to fishing knife.

The Chase

The Chase was designed from the ground up to be a more rugged knife, but that aim hasn’t taken away from its looks, making it great for both for the wet outdoors and a quiet office commute. Streamlined organic curves dominate its design language, including the ergonomic shape of the molded grippy G10 handle with a deep guard for your index finger for complete control over the cut. The 2.95" drop point blade also features a significant belly for slicing and a detail tip for precision work made easier with the top jimping on the blade. Like the EDDY knife, opening is easy with the eyehole in the blade itself. You can also pick between both super-premium 20CV stainless steel and corrosion-resistant LC200N when picking your choice of design.

The Waypoint

Another folding knife you should have your eyes set on is Quiet Carry’s Waypoint knife, which comes back in stock this month and will be a staple design. It features their cleanest and most understated design yet, but its looks belie its capability as an all-purpose cutting tool suitable for the biggest and toughest tasks. It starts with the 6AL4V titanium handle featuring marine-grade SST hardware and a corrosion-resistant clip. A secure liner lock holds everything in place, made out of extreme corrosion resistance LC200N/Z-FiNit stainless steel. The hollow-ground 3.31" hybrid drop and clip point blade features super-premium Vanax SuperClean steel that’s near the top when it comes to edge holding and corrosion resistance. The end result is a clean-looking knife that won’t weigh you down at 2.7oz with a manual thumbstud opening and superior water and corrosion resistance. The Waypoint is part of the Element series featuring everyday salt cutters.

The Current

While its fixed blade design might preclude the Current from most people’s EDC, it’s Quiet Carry’s take on a dedicated outdoors knife. It’s suited for saltwater or wet conditions with a beefy 3" drop point blade that comes with cleaver-like chopping performance, while still having a belly that goes from heel to pointed tip that's excellent for scoring and gutting your day's catch. Its full-tang construction features the same extreme corrosion resistant LC200N steel featured in a lot of Quiet Carry’s folding knives, but with absolute reliability in that there are no moving parts involved. The 3D G10 handles look attractive but they also provide the user a secure and ergonomic grip on the knife which makes it a comfortable choice for long-term camping use and food prep applications.
